Pretty good. The raspberries come through nicely. It’s quite a mellow taste and feel.

I liked this beer a lot when there were few beers that mixed fruit and other, darker styles. It does have a nice blend of a brown ale base that is chocolaty and the tart flavor of raspberry. It is a nice beer, but others have come along since and surpassed it.

On tap at Hops in New Westminster. Well carbonated, a very dark ruby in color, and the raspberry flavour is very prominent. Too prominent in fact. It may be natural flavouring, but the beverage frankly strikes me as a shandy of beer and raspberry soda. Meh.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2013 From the starting point of this being a brown ale I’d say it’s a terrible beer. If I take it in as a fruit beer I can appreciate it a little more. The appearance is the only reason to call this a brown. The aromas and flavors are overly malty and dominated by the raspberry. I’d serve this to somebody who said they didn’t like beer or wanted a desert beer.
