Ontbeertaster (2348) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle pours bright red, aroma was pure rasp. Flavour tasted like pure raspberry, no artificial rasp like a lot of fruit beers. Really nice flavour. Remind me kind of raspberry gelato

Pours cream soda pink with a cotton candy cap that is fatter than a crack smoking mayor. Taste kinda pinches me: was expecting something a bit sweeter. Maybe it’s the fruit & beer trend this summer (thinking of Kensington & their syrupy watermelon beer). It’s a tank 10 & they are having fun. Not getting steady rotation in my fridge but glad I picked it up.

Spab (2879) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2013
On tap at the Only Cafe (as Raspberry Hissyfit). Pours a reddish with pinkish head. Aroma is nice, fresh, tart raspberries. Raspberries also dominate the flavour, with only hints of grain and yeast. Full of flavour especially for 3.8%. Impressive.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2013
Bright pink red pour with a massive pink head. The nose is bright and fruity. The yeast is kind of subdued but there is a bit of spice and a bit of fruit as well. Lean bodied and refreshing. Decent enough - but I prefer the regular version.

shaynsawchuk (681) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2013
650 mL. Pours cranberry cocktail with a short lived white head. Raspberry, cranberry and a touch of grainy malt. Surprised not to see any yeast flavours here. Refreshing and dry, nice and fruity, but a bit much raspberry. Thin body and moderate carbonation.

blankboy (6657) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2013
Draught at ’The Rhino Summer Beer Festival 2013’. Pours a deep ruby with a spare diminishing frothy white head. Aroma of sweet and slightly tart raspberries along with some grain and malt in the back. Nice flavour of raspberries, sweet and tart, light and refreshing. Average bodied. A pleasant light Fruit beer.
