Bottle at my brother's place. This is clearly a raspberry syrup based beer with a decent aroma and syrupy mouthfeel. Not as offensive as I expected.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Granville Island Brewing. Cherry 7-Up colored pour with white foam. Raspberry soda and syrup aromas. Bread dough and grain. Some dust, slight tartness, and a bit of lemon zest. Flavor is mildly tart. A decent raspberry character...a lot of soda character to it. Cherry candy, a bit of grass, and grains. Cereal sweetness.

Bottle from the brewery. Grain grass and toasted almonds first then some light raspberry. A bit more in the flavour, but its a bit too sweet and artificial. Pours a hazy pink and finishes short and sticky.

Sampler paddle at Beertown in London
Not bad for a fruit beer very underwhelming in the fruit taste but that is ok with me

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at L’Autre Oeil (Gatineau, QC). Hazy pink/ruby body with heavy carbonation and an average, lasting light pink foamy head. Light malty/raspberry aroma with some herbal hints. Its fresh but rather thin taste carries raspberry syrup and some grassy notes. Ends with a short fruity/herbal finish. Almost like fruit juice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours unclear medium dark golden, orange-pinkish tint, with a small off-white cap, some retention and lacing. raspberry gummy bears - less artificial than you would think, grassy herbal notes - bland, some tea, sweetish lightly toasted malts, light woodsy vanilla, dusty. moderately low carbonation, light body - slightly watery, relatively dry, very lightly astringent and bland herbal-grassy-dusty finish. above average fruit beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Churchill's Ottawa. Pours a clear, light pinkish/amber with a small white head. Aromas are hard to discern (wind on roof-top patio not helping!) but perhaps some spent grain and chalk. Tastes are faint and moderately sweet raspberry, light grain, and chalk. Light body, moderate carbonation and little to no after-taste. Despite being billed as a raspberry ale, it really comes off as a mass-produced lager or blonde (aside from the colour). Disappointing beer for my 300th rating!

A cherry red ale with a thin white head. In aroma, light raspberry jam with faint malt. In mouth, a sweet fruity raspberry malt with light mineral notes, grassy, so so. On tap at L’autre oeil.
