3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Oly Club WA 08í. Hazy rose color. Raspberries right form the get go. Sweet, tart raspberries: covers anything else going on here. If you like intense fruit beers this is a great choice. I am not one for this style but i certainly give them credit for putting this brew together.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at the Crystal Ball Room location. A hazy pinkish beer with no head. The aroma is sweet and dominated by raspberries. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of raspberries - somewhat artificial combined with notes of malt and wheat, leading to a dry finish. The body is thin. Not to my liking.

This light amber ale poured with almost no head and a strong raspberry aroma. The flavor is way too watery and the fruit flavor is too light. But overall, itís a decent refreshing drink.

A pretty decent easy drinking fruit beer. IF only they used more hops and malt to achieve a higher gravity....then this would be a great beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very pleasant raspberry aroma and flavor. My glass is always tipped to brewers for using real fruit in this beer, although I typically donít care for fruit beers. This beer is quite pale and thin, but for what it is, itís quite pleasant. Try mixing this with the hammer head and itís even better.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft. Hazy amber beer with a low off-white head. Light malt, light fruit aroma. Raspberry and grain flavor. Medium bodied. Bad grain aftertaste. Just bad.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had on tap at Edgefield.
Cloudy light orange with thin ring of fizz for a head.
Smells of raspberry syrup, cranberry, sour cherry and hint of light malt- no hop smell.
Slightly sweet raspberry flavor with light pale malt background. The somewhat dry finish keeps it drinkable.
Light bodied feel with low, soft carbonation. This beer is a great ingredient for their vinaigrette dressing.

1/2/08 @ Old Saint Francis School in Bend, with Bikesandbeer and his Girlfriend Jesse. Lunch before driving to Sacramento via Mt. Shasta. 7th Brewery of the trip. Pours yellow with a half finger tan head. Nose is nice and razzy. Taste is razzy and sweet, interesting but quite thin.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 22oz Bottle. Purchased at the Kennedy School, 7/7/07. Pours a somewhat hazy, pale gold color with peach hues and a thin layer of quickly dissipating, wispy white head. A big raspberry juice nose leaps out of the glass right away, but as it warms, it starts to fade, revealing a grainy malt base. Some apple yeast character noticeable. Light bodied, softly carbonated mouthfeel with a gentle effervescence. Crisp, authentic raspberry flavors up front on the palate, but could use more intensity. This tastes like a raspberry Berliner Weiss sans the lactic acid. As such, the palate falls off quickly, leaving a light graininess to linger on the tongue.
