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.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2004 Nice raspberry aroma disguises the lack of taste. What is there is sour wheat with barely detectable raspberry. Looks like cranberry juice. Light and easy to drink. Lienie’s berryweiss is better. Somewhat refreshing.

Bottle. pours an effervescent purple with surprisingly little head. fruity aroma that doesn’t surprise or disappoint. taste is acidic at first but settles into a malty raspberry. finish leaves a jam on crackers taste. not bad, but a little watered down

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2004
Bottle. Dark amber body capped with a thin layer of bubbles. Nose is malty and berry. The taste tastes almost exactly like raspberry jam on buttered toast. The finish on the front end is raw, but it gives away to a great buttery taste. This is kinda complex-the taste is both raw and yummy. It’s good and sucks at the same time.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2005 Well this one starts with a very nice color. The aroma is not refreshing, kind of harsh. There is no head as you take your first sip which is odd. The malt and fruit combination is nothing special and a little thin, but it is somewhat refreshing. some wierd buttery notes as well. the raspberry flavors are not as strong as i was expecting. good lacing however.

Dark red, almost purple color. No head. Very little raspberry on the aroma. It starts nice and slightly fruity, but then a strange malt kick comes in topped of by rancid black raspberries. This is grunge.

Thick Red/Purple Coloring. Small Head. Aroma of Raspberry. Starts off well with a nice suble taste of raspberry...then tastes like someone stepped on your black raspberries and didn’t even bother to wipe it off for you, to say nothing of the 5 second rule.... Overall, average and nothing spectacular.

Bottle into small plastic tasting cup, Humulus Lupus @ Jak’s Tap (Chicago). Funky raspberry smell, not really appetizing. Ruby red in the cup. It was much like a lager with some weak, spoiled raspberry flavoring thrown in and not mixed well. Didn’t like it that much.

Suttree (5689) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 20, 2004
Clear reddish purple, no head. Obvious raspberry aroma, and flavor, mildly tart but also a bit watery. Not horrible, but not much to distinguish itself.

TheDean (786) - MIlwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 1, 2004
This smells as fruity as I am. Interesting taste...or lack thereof. Taste like a flat Raspberry cola. Not a lot of fun.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - MAY 29, 2004
Pours a cranberry red with hints of purple. Virtually headless. Mild fruity, raspberry aroma. Ligthtly flavored with raspberries but not the big fruity aroma or taste of other fruit beers. Subtle, not sweet. Decent beer.
