Great Divide's mantra is that real fruit makes real beer, so Great Divide ferments Wild Raspberry Ale with hundreds of pounds of real red and black raspberries. Wild Raspberry Ale is a truly effervescent, ruby red ale that achieves the almost impossible balance between malted barley and tart raspberry fruitiness. Its naturally tart character makes Wild Raspberry the ultimate accompaniment to spicy Mexican food or on its own as a stand-alone session beer.

part of a mix pack. foggy light red/pink color. aroma was pretty nice raspberry and the taste was of the kind but set off with a good balance of wheat and real beerness. Refreshing and light fruitiness.

Pours a caramel red color with a thick head if poured with gusto. Head quickly dissipates leaving only thin leftovers. The smell is off. A little sour, definite malt characters and slight mark of hay. The taste leaves little to be excited about. I couldn’t get over the awful metallic taste which i awesome was supposed to be a shot at rasberries. I first starting drinking this freezing cold. As it warms the smells become a lot more pleasant and the rasberries are very distinct, taste remains unpleasant though. I wanted to like it because the rest of Great Divides selection has really impressed me.

FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Pours a ruby/orange haze with a short-lived off white finger of head. Smells fresh - soft fruits, crisp greens, smells like spring. Taste nearly mirrors the nose. Very subtle tartness that comes with the fruit. A very approachable, balanced fruit beer. Don’t mind getting a few of these in a mixer.

Bottle. Pours a reddish brown with a puffy white head. Aroma is full of raspberries. The taste is fruity and full of carbonation. This is not a fruit beer i’d recommend.

BVery (8201) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Bottle. Orange/pink pour with a white head that dissipates quickly. Nose was actually quite mild - lager with a hint of raspberry. Palate is a tad thin. Taste was dull - kind of flat, raspberry didn’t really pop out at all. I’m wondering how old this bottle is.

From notes. First reviewed 1/26/2011. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. This looks like what I would expect out of a raspberry beer. A dark, blood red or ruby color with tints of brown. A quick foamy off-white head forms out of the bottle and fades quickly. The bubbles audibly pop and disappear. No lacing. Raspberry syrup, tart raspberries, and some light bready malt create the nose. I have the same issue with this as I have had with other raspberry beers in the past - the raspberry flavor just comes across too synthetic to really be enjoyable. I want raspberry preserves and I get processed artificial raspberry syrup. The malt really hides away and the raspberry is the dominant flavor. The flavor moves from tart to sweet and back, but it still has an industrial taste I just cannot get myself to enjoy. Dry, light bodied, with full, tingling carbonation. The raspberry flavored plastic they used to make this beer is not doing it any favors. I would pass if given this again.
