3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Public house draft at a bottle release. Pretty nice fruit beer with a nice dose of hops too. I liked that you could tell the berries were real and not just some chemical syrup. Felt like you could taste some pulp to the berries.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampler flight on tap at the brewpub (Athens, OH). Pours a well hazed orange amber hue, touch of pink with frothy offwhite head. Thicker ring laces ok. Aromas are gentle berry, citrus, and flaked wheat. Touches of straw, bready malts, dough, gentle kiss of sweet pulpy berry. Initial is lighter bodied offering touches of red barry, raspberries, and bready malts. Touches of grass, gentle sweetness. Middle gives a touch of citrus, lingering berry and bready malts, touches of dry earthy hops are slight. Simple yet solid fruit beer, mellow.

On tap at brewhouse. Cloudy pink in color white a big foamy white head. Strong aroma of raspberries with some hints of grain. Refreshing and crisp on the palate with a sweet/tart raspberry upfront taste and some wheat on the back end. Overall a descent summer beer that was quite enjoyable, but in small doses.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours a reddish amber color with a medium slight pink head. The aroma is mildly sweet raspberries, tart notes, wheat, grass with a light toasted quality. The flavor is similar with the opening having more grassy with wheat notes and the raspberries starting later and remaining through the finish. Decent for what it is.

This poured a cloudy cloudy light amber color with a pinkish hued head. Aroma was of a nice amount tart raspberries, and wheaty yeast character. Flavor was a nice blend of tart raspberry, not artificial at all, and wheat spice and yeast. Decent.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish brown appearance, like what I’d expect a ruby red grapefruit juice to look like. Bonus, the head was actually pink-colored! I’ve never encountered that before. Aroma does not disappoint, with a full raspberry taste in the nose upfront and a medium gently fading finish. Taste is slightly sweet and sour, much like a grapefruit juice that kind of seems appropriate for the beer. Crisp palate and texture, a little thin feeling, maybe too sharply carbonated but satisfying. However interesting this beer may be, though, I couldn’t imagine drinking more than one. For me, it’s a novelty... It goes down easy, but it’s not heavily drinkable due to the strong fruit flavor.
