Draft @ North Wales. Red color with a light amount of carbonation. Aroma is solid raspberry with a hint of tartness. Sweet, a decent raspberry hit, but not too much here.

Sample from NW (they were using this to blend with a couple of their other beers). Poured a reddish color. Aromas and tastes of raspberries and not much else. Syrupy body. Good call on blending with this one...

I had this during as Brewers Plate dinner at the West Chester location. We were able to talk our server into letting us try some of this (they were blending it with one of their wheat beers). Pours a raspberry pink with a very small bubbly off white head. Aroma of sweet raspberry, some tart notes and not much funk. Flavor of lightly tart raspberry, but mostly sweet, a little syrupy and some wheat/breadyness. It wasn’t as bad as they were saying it was going to be...but I could see why they decided to us it to blend into another beer.

West Chester- Cough syrup. No funk. Pathetic and chalky. Like a watered down DFH fort. Was quite disappointed by this. Bartender said this was not for safe by itself but only for blending with their wheat, but was happy to provide a taster.

Horrible, I hate to say that about my favorite brewpub, but it is the truth. Aroma is very raspberry, almost over the top,The tste though, is not sweet, but dry. Very tart and sour, but no real flavor.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2008 Poured a ruby red / amber color with a small, pinkish white head that left nice lacing on the glass. The aroma and taste are of straight raspberries... nothing else. Some tart raspberry skins found in the taste, but other than that it was very one dimensional, and cloyingly sweet.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Wilmington, 07.30.06. Pours a brilliant ruby color with a huge pink head. Aroma is overwhelmingly fruity and sweet. Flavor is dominated by tart raspberry with some dry yeastiness and a touch of sour. Pretty good, but maybe a touch too much in the fruity department.
