Tap @ Blind Tiger. Pours deep gold with a small off-white head. The nose is sugary raspberry syrup, berries, tart. The taste is super crisp raspberry ripple, cream. Some sugary waffle cone. Light watery finish. Very light body, easy to drink. A bit thin tasting,but otherwise quite nice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Blind Tiger. Pours a somewhat shiny clear gold with medium white head. Aroma is wheaty with fresh raspberry notes. Flavor is slightly sugary sweet of raspberry with a wheaty background. A touch of the candy, blowpop type artificial flavor, but not enough to detract too much.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the brewpub. The Raspberry Panty Dropper pours a pale yellow color with a medium thin white head that burns away quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of tart raspberries and malt. Light body with flavors of tart raspberries and malt. The finish is fruity with a short raspberry aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at the brewery. Light orange mostly with a slight pink color, white head. Aroma of artificial raspberry. Taste is the same. I really don’t like this beer. Tastes like an artificially sweetened vitamin water or something. Not good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
tap: chalky plum color with 1 finger head, fades to film, nice lacing. Aroma and flavor are very raspberry extract like in quality. Really nothing else detectable. Mouthfeel a atd thin. Very dry in the finish, no aftertaste whatsoever.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap: Bitter raspberru aroma. Cloudy reddish-brown with a small pink head. Lots of sour raspberry up front that lasts throughout. Finishes with a light bitterness. Much more sour than I expected. Sour artificial raspberry flavor is a little overbearing.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ brewery. Pours a dark red hazy color with a small whitish head. Nose is light malt and some fruit juice. Palate is much thicker then anticipated, quite syrupy but not sweet. Has a frozen raspberry juice concentrate to it with a sour finish. The thick frozen raspberries and light malt cover the flavor.

3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft... Straw-colored (almost colorless) ale with a small, quickly dissipating, off-white, pinkish head. The nose is of tart raspberries. The flavor is more tart than sweet with less fruitiness. Light-bodied and fizzy. A bit thin. Short, lip smacking, tangy finish. Nice crossover brew. Refreshing!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. I understand the concept behind their PD line and they score a big hit for that, but as fruit beers this series lacks. A fine drink for a young lass looking for an alcopop that is not muddled up with malt and bitter hops, lacking in beer-like qualities sought after by grey haired beergeeks. The color is a funky clear pink haze. LIttle to no head. Very distinct raspberry aroma. Thin bodied. Raspberry flavor is dominant, smacking down any malt that dare rise up. A nice drink for your beer hating other.
