Red colour, impressive berry nose and palate. Light, easy-drinking. The use of fresh fruit (not extract) is quite noticeable, and makes this a rare fruit beer worth drinking.

Draft at McMenamins Sunnyside. Aroma of floral and fruit. Guava to me. Raspberry they say. Pink grapefruit color with a white head. Wheat and light grapefruit to start. It didn’t turn into raspberry for me until the finish, which was otherwise wheat. Found no bitter in the finish. Nice and refreshing though.

Light pink, strawberries and wheat, semi-tart flavor, some biting yeast flavors. Peppy, better than the average fruity beer... the tartness being the main reason.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at the Six Arms, Seattle Rosy pink as watermelon juice, with no trace of a head, muddy. If I inhale VERY deeply and long, I can get indeed some raspberry aroma. But is says "packed full of 60 pounds or raspberries...". Yes, on - the city’s water reservoir? Discreet fruit taste, as a bit of raspberry jam dissolved in a big galss of tap water (well, then maybe not as Seattle tap water contains lethal doses of chlorine). Refreshing it is, no doubt. OK, it’s light. Very poor fruit beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at Thompson Brewery and Public House in Salem. The beer is a cloudy pinkish-orange color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of raspberries and malt. Light clean body with flavors of fresh raspberries, sweet malt and a bit of wheat. The finish is fruity and does not linger very long. Just average overall.
