3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle left over from my Christmas party. Not sure what says "Christmas" about this but someone thought so. Pours a medium, clear brown with slight tan head. Aroma is raspberry cough syrup with some very bad, stale, year old coffee mixed in. Taste is more stale coffee up front with some lingering sweetness near the middle with the raspberry coming through at the end in a nice way that just disguises the grossness of this beer to make you come back for another sip. Scroll past.

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

Pours a dark amber brown color. Sweet to the nose. A sweet flavour heavily malted with a strong raspberry taste. Not bad but not my style.

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.

Pours a brown color with a small head. Nose is fruity and sweet. Taste is raspberry and chocolate. Very light, making it easy to drink. Finish is sweet, and ends with the same flavored notes of raspberry and chocolate. Typical fruit beer. Quaff Score 6 / 10

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.
