22oz bottle from my buddy Josh. Pale yellow with a pink hue. Faint raspberry aroma, almost sour tasting. Taste is raspberries, slight sweetness, different from the aroma. Easy drinking, not a big favorite.

Very pretty in a glass, and retains a moderate raspberry sweetness. More body would be nice.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
7/18/08 On draught at the Kennedy School. Aroma is candilike sweet fruit. Appearance is hazy pink with a medium maintained white head. Flavor is raspberry sweetness forward but not strong, and with almost no bittering. Mouthfeel is light bodied with a very light spritzy carb texture. Overall, the flavor of the base style and the raspberry are just too light.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Old St. Francis School in Bend. Pours ruby indeed. A fruity, light ale. Not too sweet like some, but also not very strong. A light, crisp low-alcohol sipper for the hot summer days.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap@McMenamins Grand Lodge. Hazy, pale pink body with a thin white head. Moderate fruity aroma of berries, actually a bit artificial. Flavor is light and fruity, like strawberry and watermelon in an almost bubblegum type flavor. It’s suppose to be real fruit and probably is, but for me it tasted like a light blonde with a dash of fruit syrup.

Sample size draft. This beer avoids most fruit beer pitfalls - it’s not syrupy or overly sweet and the raspberry flavor is significant and well integrated into a crisp, refreshing beer.
