Looks just like grapefruit. Smells like ocean spray. Tastes like candy. No hops. I don’t like raspberry and this has a lot of raspberry.

Excellent summer beer. Just the right amount of fruitiness with the wheat earthiness. Very drinkable.

i am not sure how to explain ruby...she tastes good but sometimes she tastes flat...i have recently started having Rubinators (Ruby & Terminator Stout blend) because it gives Ruby just what she needs to be perfect...I have to say that i never go anywhere near a McMenamins without stopping in & grabbing a Ruby

On tap at McMenamins on the waterfront. Appearance is hazy, pale ruby red color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is mostly raspberry. Flavor is raspberry, grapefruit, and bread. Has a nice fruity sweetness on the forefront with some bitterness in the finish. Pretty light bodied, crisp, with a noticeable but subtle acidity to it. Overall, one of my favorites from McMenamins. Definitely nice to drink one of these and watch the sailboats go by on a sunny day though :-)

Fruity-berry taste, very fruity. (one taster said it was like bad applejuice). There is a soury flavor. Very nice ruby grapefruit color

Sweet and sour grapefruit aroma. A hazy ruby color with light white head. A tart flavor of raspberries - malt is faint and hops are absent. Light, thin bodied and refreshing. Would be great on a hot day.

I have to admit that there is nothing better on a hot, sunny day than drinking a tart, refreshing Ruby. It’s never sweet, perfect balance of wheat and raspberry create a thirst quenching tart little beer worthy of drinking. Living in Los Angeles means I rarely get to enjoy this beer anymore, but whenever I go back to Portland, I always have to have it.

Bottle. Cloudy light pink with a lively bubbly white head. Aroma is sour raspberries, dusty yeast, minerally undertones. Flavour is all under-ripe raspberries, wheat, yoghurt, light yeast. Finish is very crisp and dry, quite tart and acidic. Nothing sweet at all about this fruit beer-- very genuine, refreshing, light. Very good.
