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.

pale golden color with a touch of pink. white head. light ras aroma. less ras flavor but seems to add sweetness that balances with just a touch of bitterness. medium body but a little watery at the same time. maybe a fruit beer that a non-fruit beer person might like, a little. hot sunny rafting beer.

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.

This is my favorite McMenamins beer. Its fruity and refreshing. Its great for summer drinking, watching live music, soaking in a McMenamins tub or otherwise running around one of their adult playgrounds.

Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is light malt and berries. Taste is grain with lots of raspberry, and low bitterness. Low-medium body. Alright.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Not bad for a fruit beer, key words being for a fruit beer. Awfully sweet. Someone told me this was good mixed with their terminator stout, but why ruin a perfectly good terminator stout?

I really enjoyed this. finally, a raspberries actually tasted like real raspberries and they weren't dominating. Decent underlying wheat. This is one of the better fruit beers I've had.

Draft at Six Arms, Seattle. The raspberry flavor really packs a wallop! Beer is light and refreshing without the overbearing fizziness of some lighter fruit beers. Wonderful balance between the raspberry flavors and some legitimate beer characteristics. Very, very refresing. Worth a try.

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.
