A nice fruit beer. Heaps of raspberries. Clean and refreshing. Could guzzle it like water. Definitely not your typical beer, but a nice change of pace nonetheless.

I live about 1 mile from where this brew is crafted. It is a brew that is made with rassberries involved. It is a great all around fruit brew and here is my review:
Appearance: The appearance is a beer that is "silty" and unfiltered. It has a slight ruby hue to it and caps off nicely with a finger width head.
Smell: Fruity, that of rassberries and hops
Taste: The taste is crisp and refreshing. The rassberries don not over take the beers natural hoppieness. Very flavorfull
Mouthfeel: The carbonation in this brew is low so that you can really guzzle it down with no carb-burn. Good taste with very little aftertaste.
Drinkability: This is a brew that I would drink again. I would rather order it in the bottle to go though, I will explain upon reviewing the joint.

I have to admit that there is nothing better on a hot, sunny day than drinking a tart, refreshing Ruby. It’s never sweet, perfect balance of wheat and raspberry create a thirst quenching tart little beer worthy of drinking. Living in Los Angeles means I rarely get to enjoy this beer anymore, but whenever I go back to Portland, I always have to have it.

This naturally carbonated beer is one of the only fruit beers I’ve ever found to be worth drinking. The flavor is refreshing, and while the raspberries are evident, so are the hops.
This beer is a clouded tawney, pinkish hue, and is best served "medium cold", right between ice cold, and cellar temperature.
The low carbonation level of this beer makes it an ideal competition grade speed chugging beer.

A good raspberry flavor to this one. Very light, pinkish in color -- great warm day brew.

I am quite fond of Mcmenamins brew this ruby ale with some monstrous rasberry flavor did however dissapoint. I have had several reasberry brews and did not care for most, this was no exception. Mcmenamins does beer far better than the impression this brew leaves. Rasberry leaves that is, I suggest you all leave this one alone and grab a Terminator.

Usually have this at North Bank McMenamins. This one pours a cloudy, light pink color. Almost looks like grapefruit juice but tastes much better. Raspberry flavoring is subtle and smooth. Always have a pint of this when we are at McMenamins.
