This was a gift from a local friend. Pours red from the 12-oz bottle, Thin tan head. Nose is a blast of raspberries. Light to medium in body. Flavor is dominated by the raspberry but there is a enough malts to carry the day. Dry finish. Quite good.

Total Wine Vegas bottle. Honestly, a very well made fruit beer. Definitely tastes of raspberries but some complexity added with the addition of "other" berries. Nothing fake testing at all. Tasty and refreshing.

A nice non-sweet berry aroma. Dark ruby red. The flavor is sweet and sour raspberry. Sweet up front and throughout the body with a little sourness at the finish. Overall a pretty solid fruit beer.

10 ounce sample on tap at the brewpub. Tons of raspberries are present in the nose with a slight tartness present. I really love raspberries, and this is nicely aromatic. Straight-forward and not overly complex, but this is nice. Transparent ruby body with a medium pink head. Definitely didn’t use any extract here. Lots of raspberry throughout. Dry and slightly bitter in the middle. Some tannins are also present. Fairly tarty, but lacks much in the way of depth and any sort of balance. Pretty straight-forward and lacking body.

On tap. Beautfiul ruby/purplish body, clear with a creamy off-white 1" head. Aroma had a raspberry fruit juice kinda aroma. Flavor was very fruity, sweetness seemed to be integrated well into the beer without being cloying. Refreshing.

Draft @ Great Basin. Pours deep, clear ruby color; minimal off-white head retained. Although this isn’t syrup, the aroma is syrupy and reminiscent of cherry cough syrup, sadly; a generous cough syrup nose, but not fresh raspberries. Medium mouthfeel: following the aroma, the raspberry notes come off syrupy, heavy, cough syrup-like; not the effervescent, crisp berry character one would hope for; relaxed carbonation; lightly syrupy. Some toastiness appears at the end; light red fruit character; on the dry side.

Tap @ brewpub: Cranberry color with a small white head. Berry aroma of raspberries and other varietals. Basically, this is raspberry juice with a slight malty aftertaste. I was with someone who hates beer and he loved it and wanted a whole pint. So, it is a refreshing fruit blast beer that tastes pretty good.
