UPDATED: FEB 26, 2006 Pours a very cloudy red raspberry body. Small head. Aroma and flavor is uh... oh yeah.. uh... RASPBERRY. Finishes extremely sweet. I thought it was low in alcohol, but 2.5%... wow.
Cloudy raspberry body. Aroma and flavor is raspberry and sugar. Has a really bad sweet taste. Doesn’t feel natural or right.... bleh.

When I feel like champagne, or maybe dessert, I just drink this. Sparkly with round fruity raspberry flavor, very sweet and filling with a celebratory fizzy pink head.

A favorite among anyone who hates the taste of beer.
A mouthful of crushed red sweetarts- surrounded by a beer’s body. Candy beer with a very balanced malt background doused in loads of sugar but yet with a palate cleaning bitterness.
I would not recommend drinking alot of this beer at one time- as the hangover could kill you or at least make you a diabetic. I do recommend drinking alot of this beer over time.
Have a corkscrew ready as under the foil is a crown and under the crown a cork and under the cork comes the candy!
The best in it’s class-

A strong raspberry aroma and nice reddish color and red head. A strong raspberry flavor and sweet finish on the palate.

355 mL Bottle. Dang, be right back. Need a corkscrew. ;) WOW! Smells like IHOP raspberry syrup. Let me go get some pancakes now. Taste... bubbly raspberry candy. Boy, there’s a tart pucker factor in there. So this is a Lambic (pure newbie here). I catch just a hint of the yeast, but mostly it’s the sugary candy raspberry flavor. Quite different from my recent stint of IPA’s and Stouts. But throw a little bit ’o rum in here, and man... that’d be a drink. ;) Now where’d I put that bottle of Bacardi... More of a dessert / candy treat than what I’d consider a "beer to sit down and drink".

Pure tarty goodness! Tastes like tart and tangy candy in a glass (like liquid NERDS). Pours Red with a hint of pink. Lots of rasberry in the nose as well as alchohol, TONS of rasberry, cherry, and strawberry in the taste. Very bubbly like champagne. Refreshing if you are thirsty. This is one to be selfish with >:). You’ll love it if you were a fan of candy as a child.

Absolutely my favorite beer of all time. It’s got a wonderful red color, not much head, but fizzes like champagne. Nice raspberry flavor with a little bitterness. At $8+ a bottle, you won’t want to waste it, so plan to share it with a friend. Serve cold. It’s wonderful.

Draft @ detroit beer co. Pours a ruby red color with a fizzy lighter red head. Nose is very sweet like candy and contains raspberry and strawberries. Taste is quite fizzy like a champagne but has a nice maltiness to it. Rasberries, cranberries and strawberries complete it. Very fizzy and bubbly on the palate.
