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.

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!

very dark with only brown color coming when it’s held up to the light. Sweet, raspberry extract like aroma. Pretty carbonated, and not as full a body as I’d like. Some sweet raspberry notes but too sweet for my taste. Drinkable but nothing more.

Pretty good for a fruit beer. Nice nutty/fruity undertones complement the usual insipid environment that a brown ale provides. The raspberry flavors really complement this beer well and for a brown ale it’s pretty amazing. I’d recommend this anyone who’s in the market for a cheap bomber.

Not bad for a fruity beer. It had a nice balance between the "browns" and the "rasps".

On draft at the Creek monkey alehouse in Martinez. It pours amber brown with a nice khaki head. The aroma is nice and toasty with hints of raspberry flavoring. The flavor is similarly toasty with hints of cocoa and a touch of brown sugar. The raspberry is there, but unfortunately it tastes kinda artificial. It has a nice full body for the style. I can’t help but think this would be a really good brown ale without the raspberry in there.

Bottle from green life Asheville in December - pours an amber red with an inch of cream colored foam. Aroma is toast and raspberries. Taste is mildly sweet and toasty with no bitterness. Not getting a lot of hops. Nice, goes well with my Hawaiian-style (ham & pineapple) pizza.

Bottle from unknown source. Pours dark brown with a finger of khaki foam. As expected raspberry notes on the nose as well as on the tongue. It’s not sweet which is good. I’m not getting much influence from the brown ale. Finishes clean. A bit of a hybrid but I was hoping for something more bold.

Copper/ruby colour with a frothy white head. Lovely refreshing aroma of raspberry. Raspberry, chocolate roasted malt flavour. Hint of coffee. Raspberry background. Very nice silky caramel texture. Pleasant and a very enjoyable beer. Very unique and satisfying.
