1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Looks like a glass of grapefruit juice. Ruby, cloudy body. Wheat cereal malt with strong raspberry tartness. Dry and rather unappealing.

A very weak and watery beer...slightly fruit is all that I got out of it. The corn flake finish sucked balls. This is a chick beer.

You know, I’ve never been much of a fruit beer fan so I already had low expectations. For a fruit beer this guy was pretty decent, mainly because the fruit flavor wasn’t very strong. I could still taste the beer beneath it which was a pretty decent beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled this one on draught at McMenamins Edgefield, in Troutdale, OR. This is the first time I had tried Ruby since 1999, and I have forgotten what a well done fruit beer Ruby really is. This beer pours to a slightly hazy, light ruby red color, with a soapy white head, and a moderate carbonation. The nose on this beer is wonderful, with tart and sweet aromas of raspberry. The palate is lean, with some crisp, light pale malt flavor, paired with wonderful tart and sweet raspberry flavors. This beer finishes crisp, and then ends with tart raspberry flavopr that lingers. Very well done fruit beer with excellent raspberry aromas and flavors. An ideal aperitif, digestif, or desert beer. I really enjoyed trying this one again.

Hazy tan, with a thin head. Served at the power station at the edgefield resort. Major raspberry aroma and flavor. Very sweet. Tastes more like fruit juice than beer.

rasberry yogurt aroma, watery and hoppy rasberry yogurt flavor, better balanced than most fruit beers at least

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.
