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...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 didn’t like it, claiming it tasted like children’s medicine, but I didn’t find the raspberry too sweet or artificial so I ended up drinking the lion’s 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.

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.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

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)
