From bottle pours a nice magenta with foamy white head. First sip is smooth sweet with strong raspberry sour at the back. Nice summer sipping beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a really clear amber with an quickly fading white head that settles into a white rim that leaves nice lacing. Nose is that of an Ocktoberfest/Marzen almost with some toasted cereals, corn, bread and some very vague raspberries in the back. Taste is moderately sweet (a little more than that, in fact) and offers the same malty flavors with a lightly acidic edge from the "raspberries" I guess. Not crisp at all and a little syrupy even. Which is weird, because body is quite light. Moderate carbonation. Not enough fruits and just weak overall, classic macro swill. They usually put a lot of fake extracts in their fruit flavored beers, though, not sure what happened here?

Draft. Pink beer with a cream head. Light raspberry aroma. Raspberry and light malt flavor. Medium bodied. Raspberry and light malt lingers.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2016 Robe cuivrée claire avec un mince col de mousse. Rien n’indique une présence de framboises. Arômes de confitures de baies, un peu de citron, miel et léger malt caramélisé. En bouche, baies sucrées et sans aucun doute artificielles, cocktail aux framboises, miel, citron, caramel. À boire très froide car les saveurs deviennent fades et le fruité prend le large au détriment du malt. Texture un peu aqueuse, corps mince.

Watery red colour. Watery fruity taste. This is basically a glass of crystal clear with booze.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear reddish gold pour with thin foam and active carbonation. Smooth, sweet mouthfeel. Mild tartness at the end. Raspberry flavor dominates but touches of yeast come through. Overall effect is a little disappointing. The raspberry flavor seemed mannered, almost artificial.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: hazy red-tinged deep gold with a short-lived white head, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: raspberry, grassy, pale crackery malt. (5/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, mild tart. (4/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, dry slightly astringent finish. (3/5)
This is one of those very rare beers that I think could actually stand to be a bit sweeter. There’s some (somewhat fake-smelling) raspberry there, but it’s so very dry and astringent that it’s tasting more like berry seeds than flesh, or maybe watermelon peel. I’m not sure more sweetness would have made it taste any less artificial, but it might be a little more palatable. (10/20)

Pours a thin, white foamy quick dissipating head atop a peachy coloured body. Nose of sweet raspberry jam. The flavour is more subtle and seedy with a watery sweet dry finish. Okay.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Quite mild raspberry flavour, pinkish clear in colour. It needs to be sour to be a good beer with this fruit flavour. And it should not be a part of their variety packs.

Can from the brewery. Hazy pinkish-red. The head died down fairly quickly. Smells berryish, but bland and artificial. Light body, bit fizzy. Pretty sweet, bland, with some raspberry taste. Drinkable, but that’s about it. About what you’d expect for this type of beer from a larger brewery.
