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.

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.

This smells as fruity as I am. Interesting taste...or lack thereof. Taste like a flat Raspberry cola. Not a lot of fun.

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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reddish in colour with an aroma of berries. Flavour is bitter, more like raspberry seeds or under-ripe berries.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ruby body with pale pink head. Looked more like a sparkling fruit wine. Heavy aroma of berries that was pleasant and inviting. The flavor did not live up to the aroma. It was a soda-like body and, although having the frangance of raspberries, it dodn’t taste much like them. Sweet and tart but not pleasant. Disappointing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
hmmmm, interesting. Purple colour with medium lasting whiteish-pink head. The nose is raspberry but more seedy. The taste is barlyish with lots of grain and there is just a hint or raspberry but not enough to make it great.

A lot less rasberry flavor that I expected, but it is still there. The raspberry mainly comes out in the nose. This beer is fairly simple, but also quite enjoyable.
