2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Draft: Dad Watson’s in Seattle, WA) This girlie beer has a fairly strong and tart raspberry flavor dominating throughout, but it’s very light flavored in general; Light bodied, lightly carbonated with a very thin finish; The nose is mostly lightly tart raspberry, with some vague wheat aromas; Golden in color, slightly cloudy, perhaps with a pink tint, but the bar is dark, so the 1-watt lamp doesn’t make for reliable viewing; Whitish head is mostly just a rim around the glass and a thin sheen

Very light beer with a pink lemonade appearance and a bottled-water raspberry flavor. Rerating this beer, I give it higher marks than previously--though it is still not one of the brewery’s better selections.

Sampled as Dad Watsons Ruby at Fremont Oktoberfest. Pours cloudy, the color of pink grapefruit juice. Light aroma of raspberry soda. Light body and carbonation, almost nothing in the taste. Dry finish. Effin near water.

On tap at The Ram Hotel, Portland. Cloudy copper with thin off white head. Smell of raspberry. This is awful. Fruit isn’t integrated, no malt, empty and rather pathetic. Raspberry syrup runs through it. Nasty

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at the Crystal Ball Room location. A hazy pinkish beer with no head. The aroma is sweet and dominated by raspberries. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of raspberries - somewhat artificial combined with notes of malt and wheat, leading to a dry finish. The body is thin. Not to my liking.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap@McMenamins Grand Lodge. Hazy, pale pink body with a thin white head. Moderate fruity aroma of berries, actually a bit artificial. Flavor is light and fruity, like strawberry and watermelon in an almost bubblegum type flavor. It’s suppose to be real fruit and probably is, but for me it tasted like a light blonde with a dash of fruit syrup.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tap at Mill Creek location; somewhat raspberry pop mid palate but very diluted; very thin to watery; hop aroma did not match lacking hop flavor; bartender stated this ruby is made with fresh raspberries and not an elixir (hence the water feel in my opinion); not enough fruit flavor to compensate; definitely shied me away from getting again.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Smells more like sour funk than raspberries with some wheat as well. This is pretty wheaty with some sweetness to it but not too much raspberry. Not that good.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Looks just like grapefruit. Smells like ocean spray. Tastes like candy. No hops. I don’t like raspberry and this has a lot of raspberry.
