This is one of my favorite beers in the thre whole beer drning world. This beer goes down awsome and tastes so good. The flarvor is full all the way through from start to finish. I love the undertones and the small hint of Raspberries. Hey McMenamins can I have the recipie? Great beer. ALso try the Rubinator a mix between this and the Terminator stout it is awesome.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Quite fruity raspberry aroma. Cloudy orange colour, small white head. Fruity flavour with a hint of raspberry, a little watery. The aftertaste is also very raspberryish. I guess the berry flavour is well done, but it does not do much for me. This needs to be mixed with Terminator Stout to be very enjoyable.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at Dad Watsons’s. Pale color of pink grapefruit juice. Very cloudy with a finely-beaded foam halo. Smells of raspberry and perfumed soap. Very light wheat beer flavor, Gatorade-ish, dificult to identify the fruit as raspberry. Thin, weak palate. Completely inoffensive and somehow refreshing. A wine cooler alternative for sorority airheads (apologies to sorority girls outside of that category, and to anybody who likes this beer.)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2005 Underrated beer! I’ve had this a number of times and each time I am respecting it more and more. A pinkish colour with a very fruity taste. Not too heavy, yet not horribly light. An all around delicious treat.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice, full, pinkish white head, ruby-red grapefruity color. Sweet, fruity aroma, definitely raspberries, cherries, reminiscent of a kriek lambic aroma, but just a little. Hops are very low, to non-existent, extremely low bitterness, light body, slight finish. The fruity flavor persists, but there’s little texture, little body, as un-ale-like as an ale can get, but I can get, and basically respect, what they are getting at. This is their "girl’s beer". Fruity, but not hoppy. Passably enjoyable.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Draft: Dad Watson’s in Seattle, WA) This girlie beer has a fairly strong and tart raspberry flavor dominating throughout, but it’s very light flavored in general; Light bodied, lightly carbonated with a very thin finish; The nose is mostly lightly tart raspberry, with some vague wheat aromas; Golden in color, slightly cloudy, perhaps with a pink tint, but the bar is dark, so the 1-watt lamp doesn’t make for reliable viewing; Whitish head is mostly just a rim around the glass and a thin sheen

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light pink, strawberries and wheat, semi-tart flavor, some biting yeast flavors. Peppy, better than the average fruity beer... the tartness being the main reason.
