UPDATED: JAN 14, 2009 Poured from a 22 oz bottle. Color was red/brown.with nice brown head with big long lasting bubbles. Aroma is raspberry and so is the taste, which make sense. But both are subdued and basically this is a very good brown ale with fruit overtones. This is by far the best fruit flavored beer I have seen.

My notes say, "raspberry good, medicine bad," which is a good description of the aroma. The color is good with a cherry coke-ish tint and a beige head. The flavor redeems the aroma, it’s fruity without being too sweet, there’s a good brown ale lurking in the background. This is a smooth beer with nice aftertaste. I was worried when I smelled this beer, but it came together nicely.

Clear garnet body topped by tan head. Aroma is medium sweet, raspberry, some nutty. Taste is medium sweet, raspberry (but not sickly so), some nutty. Light-medium body. Nothing special, but enjoyable.

Deep brown-red. Nose peaty and malty, a bit of fruit. Flavor has chocolate and roasts, raspberry comes on but is a bit thin. Eh.

tobias (204) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2004
22 oz. bottle: pours a deep brown with ruby red tints to it. nice flluffy tan head. the aroma is of raspberries with hints of chocolate, caramel/toffee. mild raspberry taste up from with chocolate and caramel right behind. the taste is kinda toasty more so that roasty. very well balanced in my opinion. this beer could possibly be my all time favorite fruit beer.

Bottled. Deep, ruby color, clear and topped by a tan head, leaving behind minimal lacing, becoming a ring, fully lasting. Crisp aroma of fresh raspberries and toasted malts, caramel, toffee and mostly honey for malts with warmth; smells smoothe and rich, nutty, toasty. Soft, foamy carbonation, long duration, dry carbonation, fairly dry finish, medium body; clean, some light watery character, but moreso dry. Dry, dry front and then creeps in refreshing raspberries, sweetish toffee and caramel malts with a lightly bitter, toasty nut finish, raspberry carrying through. Most enjoyable brown; clean, crisp, toasty and refreshing. A great brown.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2004
On tap at the brewpub in Eureka, CA. Tasted like the brown ale with some raspberry in it, which I suppose that it is. I like the plain brown better, however my girlfriend liked this one and she hates dark beers in general.

A pretty good brown ale. Deep copper-brown color with decent head. Fruity aromas and toasted taste. Rasberry fruit taste quite subdued.

Tap@Lost Coast. Glace cheery sweetness, with a decent brown ale to back it up, don’t like the rasberry sweetness.
