A very weak and watery beer...slightly fruit is all that I got out of it. The corn flake finish sucked balls. This is a chick beer.

Thin, but also competing with a slew of other beers I had just finished, so I will give it that credit. Nice fruityness that had also to compete with the bittering and very thin body.

Tap. Hazy light-grapefruits (huh?? That’s what my rating sheet says anyway). Not much of an aroma: just light raspberries. This does carry into the taste but then fades into an undesirable finish. No bueno.

Sample at Dad Watsons’s. Pale color of pink grapefruit juice. Very cloudy with a finely-beaded foam halo. Smells of raspberry and perfumed soap. Very light wheat beer flavor, Gatorade-ish, dificult to identify the fruit as raspberry. Thin, weak palate. Completely inoffensive and somehow refreshing. A wine cooler alternative for sorority airheads (apologies to sorority girls outside of that category, and to anybody who likes this beer.)

Tap out west Two words: Chick Beer. I can sense SA Cranberry "Lambic" when I taste it.

On tap at Ram’s Head location in Portland. Clear amber with a white head. Very light aroma of berries. Flavor is fruity (shocker) with notes of raspberry and some caramel. Moderately sweet, not much bitterness detected. Light bodied with a watery texture and moderate carbonation.

Draft. Hazy amber beer with a low off-white head. Light malt, light fruit aroma. Raspberry and grain flavor. Medium bodied. Bad grain aftertaste. Just bad.

Hazy tan, with a thin head. Served at the power station at the edgefield resort. Major raspberry aroma and flavor. Very sweet. Tastes more like fruit juice than beer.

Draught in a flight at the Mill Creek brewpub. Pours a very cloudy copper color. Nose is light, with a little bit of berry coming through. Taste is slightly sweet, with a lot of grains and malt in there, but effectively no fruit taste. Which is odd for a fruit beer...

(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
