Cloudy orange body. Aroma is loaded with raspberry with lesser notes of hops and bread. Sweet fruity raspberry finish. Probably one of the better fruit beers I’ve had. Avoids the cherry soda like flavors of some of the Sam Adams brews.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice, full, pinkish white head, ruby-red grapefruity color. Sweet, fruity aroma, definitely raspberries, cherries, reminiscent of a kriek lambic aroma, but just a little. Hops are very low, to non-existent, extremely low bitterness, light body, slight finish. The fruity flavor persists, but there’s little texture, little body, as un-ale-like as an ale can get, but I can get, and basically respect, what they are getting at. This is their "girl’s beer". Fruity, but not hoppy. Passably enjoyable.
Sampled late September 2002

picked up this in the 22oz bomber on the way home tonight.
I have never had the Ruby before so not sure at all of the correct style.
The beer has a really nice look to it a slightly hazy ..almost luminescent orangy colour..odd to describe but its impressive..extremely small head which dissapears real quick leaving a slight lace down the glass.
The smell of the beer is very fruity..almost raspberry..with some nice malt and only a trace of hop near the end . Its good though.
Feels very nice on the tongue good carbonation and not too dry..nice.
This is a most drinkable brew indeed..I could easilly quaff many pints of this little beauty on a summers day!

Draught @ Oly Club WA 08’. Hazy rose color. Raspberries right form the get go. Sweet, tart raspberries: covers anything else going on here. If you like intense fruit beers this is a great choice. I am not one for this style but i certainly give them credit for putting this brew together.
