3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at Thompson Brewery and Public House in Salem. The beer is a cloudy pinkish-orange color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of raspberries and malt. Light clean body with flavors of fresh raspberries, sweet malt and a bit of wheat. The finish is fruity and does not linger very long. Just average overall.

Looks like pink champagne or ruby red grapefruit juice. Light raspberry smell, with a fun palate. Refreshing. A better raspberry than most.

Smells more like sour funk than raspberries with some wheat as well. This is pretty wheaty with some sweetness to it but not too much raspberry. Not that good.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of fresh juicy raspberries. Appearance is not unlike a glass of pink grapefruit juice - cloudy and pink. Flavor is very thin - somewhat watery - slight raspberry flavor with a faint bitter finish. Tight carbonation. A very refreshing summer beverage, certainly not a hearty drink.
