Aromas of raspberry and charred malts. Medium bodied, fairly thin, a little too much carbonation. Lots of raspberry flavour. I would like this more if the raspberry was a bit more subtle.

Clear dark amber pour with reddish tinge and a small off white head. Heavy aroma of raspberry, faint malt and caramel. Faint hint of raspberry on the taste, slight caramel and lightly malty. Thin mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. A litlle dissapointed on this one.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown color with a moderate light tan head. Nose is heavily raspberry, and you canít detect much else there. Taste is also sweet and fruity without much else to it. Meh.

Smells really good. Raspberries come out clearly. Taste does not follow. A little raspberry but very light flavors for a brown ale. A little too thin for my taste as well. Eh...

650ml bottle. Pours a deep ruby/brown with a beige head. Really nice look for a filtered beer. Aroma is light raspberry. Taste is some sweet and tart raspberry, not a lot of malt comes through other than sweetness, no bitterness. Average body. Overall, pretty drinkable, but the taste is a little thin and lacking complexity. As a side note, I bought this for my wife but she didnít like it, claiming it tasted like childrenís medicine, but I didnít find the raspberry too sweet or artificial so I ended up drinking the lionís share of the bottle.

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 Leeís. 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 (858) - 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. Iíd give this a D- rating.

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.
