22 oz bomber(s). I prefer the tangerine to this, just because the tangerine can be quaffed heavily, whereas the dark nature of this beer prevents that. Not bad, but not great. Its a raspberry brown.

This beer has a very strong raspberry aroma. It is sweet but not too much so. It maintains that beer taste. It goes down smoothly and is a great summertime e cool down beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bought a bomber at Lee’s. Poured dark reddish brown. Not a bad fruit beer, tastes like I bit into a chocolate raspberry truffle. Watery flavor though. Not a bad drink for the price.

Thisis12ptfont (808) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Faint aromas of bread and rasberry. Deep, copper color with a medium foam. Very conflicting flavors of rasberry and overbearing earthy hops and molasses malts. Overall, I had huge doubts of a brown ale with rasberry flavors. My prediction proved to be true. This is horribly unbalanced and odd tasting. I’d give this a D- rating.

Spab (2241) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2012
650 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits (Halifax). Pours a clear orange-ish dark brown with small light tan head. Aroma is fresh, fairly tart raspberries very prominent with some subtle dark malts underneath. Flavour also has strong, reasonably tart raspberry and rather light chocolate/caramel maltiness. A nice take on a fruit beer.

fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 3, 2012
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Brown color, clear. Dusty aroma, some yeast. The flavor is a total mess: dusty dry dark caramel, raspberries, light chocolate; ordinary bitterness; the final is a bit sweeter, getting better.
But overall it’s not a good beer.

obguthr (3634) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Raspberry and dirt aroma. Clear brown, thick sticky yellow head. Cocoa and raspberry flavor, a combination I have never liked very much. Walnut skins are also detected. Surprisingly full body for the style (ABA). Finishes like a flavored coffee I used to drink regularly, the flavoring not the coffee. The raspberry tastes artificial

Lagerboy (1169) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 10, 2012
Clear dark copper, thick frothy tan head settles and fades. Nice fresh raspberry malty aroma. Tart berry taste up front, chocolate malts close behind. Caramel is faint, no bitterness. Average carbonation, Light-medium bodied, low hopped. Clean dry berry finish. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

A little light. Subtle raspberry. Not a very sweet brown and probably over carbonated. Could use some mouth feel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear brown beer. Light raspberry nose. Slightly watery palate. Low carbonation. Very odd beer! Like a bottle of cold tea with raspberry flavour added. The raspberry is light and the tea flavour is strong. Minerally watery finish. Blegh!
