2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This smells as fruity as I am. Interesting taste...or lack thereof. Taste like a flat Raspberry cola. Not a lot of fun.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Reddish in colour with an aroma of berries. Flavour is bitter, more like raspberry seeds or under-ripe berries.
