3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2012 Big raspberry aroma on a cloudy orange beer. More of a malty flavor than I expected, crisp and powerful. This is an interestingly good and unique beer. Want more.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Looked a lot like grapefruit juice. Light texture. Light, bready and doughy malts; yeasty; very "wheat-like" flavors. Light raspberry flavors and esters; glad to see the raspberry infusion wasn't overdone. Mild sweetness was cleaned away by the lively carbonation. Dry finish. With every sip, it felt like I wasn't getting anywhere.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
picked up this in the 22oz bomber on the way home tonight.
I have never had the Ruby before so not sure at all of the correct style.
The beer has a really nice look to it a slightly hazy ..almost luminescent orangy colour..odd to describe but its impressive..extremely small head which dissapears real quick leaving a slight lace down the glass.
The smell of the beer is very fruity..almost raspberry..with some nice malt and only a trace of hop near the end . Its good though.
Feels very nice on the tongue good carbonation and not too dry..nice.
This is a most drinkable brew indeed..I could easilly quaff many pints of this little beauty on a summers day!

Not bad for a fruit beer, key words being for a fruit beer. Awfully sweet. Someone told me this was good mixed with their terminator stout, but why ruin a perfectly good terminator stout?

Draft @ Kennedy school: Light raspberry nose. Cloudy pink grapefruit color.Lite raspberry with pale malt taste. Watery clean finish. Too lite for my preference.

Light honey colored, cloudy, looks like a weiss beer. Aroma is raspberry, sweet, hints of yeast. Flavor is pretty sweet. Nice summer beer, one that a think alot of none beer drinkers would enjoy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice fruit beer. Heaps of raspberries. Clean and refreshing. Could guzzle it like water. Definitely not your typical beer, but a nice change of pace nonetheless.

A very weak and watery beer...slightly fruit is all that I got out of it. The corn flake finish sucked balls. This is a chick beer.

Ruby tinted pale orange body. Definitely plenty of raspberries, lots of creaminess as well. ripe fruits, sweet ant somewhat tart. Some hints of wheat as well. Body is watery and thin, but has a lively palate.

rasberry yogurt aroma, watery and hoppy rasberry yogurt flavor, better balanced than most fruit beers at least
