Draft at Sherwood location. Arrived looking like pink grapefruit juice,, cloudy and pale pink color with little to no head. Raspberry dominates aroma, flavor is crisp and wheaty with berry and fruit notes and hints of hop. Medium body and gentle carbonation. Not bad for a summer cooler.

Draft at Six Arms, Seattle. The raspberry flavor really packs a wallop! Beer is light and refreshing without the overbearing fizziness of some lighter fruit beers. Wonderful balance between the raspberry flavors and some legitimate beer characteristics. Very, very refresing. Worth a try.

Draft: Reddish pink pour with a small white head. Mild aroma of fruits and sweetness. Taste is fruity with mostly raspberries up front, some wheatiness as well. Very light and easy to drink. A good, light fruit beer.

This naturally carbonated beer is one of the only fruit beers I’ve ever found to be worth drinking. The flavor is refreshing, and while the raspberries are evident, so are the hops.
This beer is a clouded tawney, pinkish hue, and is best served "medium cold", right between ice cold, and cellar temperature.
The low carbonation level of this beer makes it an ideal competition grade speed chugging beer.

On tap at The Ram Hotel, Portland. Cloudy copper with thin off white head. Smell of raspberry. This is awful. Fruit isn’t integrated, no malt, empty and rather pathetic. Raspberry syrup runs through it. Nasty

Cloudy orange body. Aroma is loaded with raspberry with lesser notes of hops and bread. Sweet fruity raspberry finish. Probably one of the better fruit beers I’ve had. Avoids the cherry soda like flavors of some of the Sam Adams brews.

You know, I’ve never been much of a fruit beer fan so I already had low expectations. For a fruit beer this guy was pretty decent, mainly because the fruit flavor wasn’t very strong. I could still taste the beer beneath it which was a pretty decent beer.
