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.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Eugene’s North Bend location. Grapefruit colored with very little head. Aroma of raspberries and sugar. It mostly tastes like grapefruit flavored sparkling water. Dry finish. Fairly weak on the palate.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Fruity-berry taste, very fruity. (one taster said it was like bad applejuice). There is a soury flavor. Very nice ruby grapefruit color

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy golden amber color with a thin head. Very fruity aroma and flavor. The sweetness is startling at first, but it is well balanced. My only complaint is that the raspberry flavor overpowers any other malt or yeast flavors, but it doesn’t matter. This is still a pleasant ale all around.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at Dad Watsons’s. Pale color of pink grapefruit juice. Very cloudy with a finely-beaded foam halo. Smells of raspberry and perfumed soap. Very light wheat beer flavor, Gatorade-ish, dificult to identify the fruit as raspberry. Thin, weak palate. Completely inoffensive and somehow refreshing. A wine cooler alternative for sorority airheads (apologies to sorority girls outside of that category, and to anybody who likes this beer.)

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not bad, but nothing really great. The fruit flavoring is pretty evident, and the alcohol is nonexistent. I’d much rather have a Hammerhead.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The nose is the star attraction of this brew--one can actually tell there is raspberry in this stuff...Appearance is enhanced by pink tones from the fruit--otherwise cloudy...Body and flavor are predictably light but quite pleasant---this is a brew for refreshment, afterall...One pint of this is enough for one session, however...I like it as a change-of-pace starter.
