Pours a one finger white head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Clear pink/amber color. Very light carbonation and light bodied. Raspberry nose. Starts sweet, clean raspberry flavor, some tartness at finish, good summer beer. $4.25 for a 22oz bottle from the brewery in Troutdale, Or.

Cloudy yellowish with slight red hue. Wheaty aroma with raspberry essence. Flavor is more of the same. Raspberries taste natural. Tart and wheaty. A nice fruit beer

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.

One of my favorites from the lineup, smooth, light and drinkable. Nice full body, similar to German Hefe , slick and smooth. Sweet juice essence makes it refreshing.

On tap @ McMenamins Barley Mill. Hazed orange-pink-red pour with a creamy white head. Bready malt mixed with slightly tangy berry. Dehydrated raspberry and some pretty decent cereal notes. The flavor is kind of tangy and also a bit sweet. Maybe some vanilla and bread dough. A little soda-like. Pretty nice.

Portland trip. Sampled on draft this beer poured a cloudy golden color with just a faint red tinge. The flavor was light sweet raspberry. The flavor was sweet raspberry with a light bready undertone. Medium finish and body. Nice.

Looks like pink champagne or ruby red grapefruit juice. Light raspberry smell, with a fun palate. Refreshing. A better raspberry than most.

Sweet and sour grapefruit aroma. A hazy ruby color with light white head. A tart flavor of raspberries - malt is faint and hops are absent. Light, thin bodied and refreshing. Would be great on a hot day.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2016 "an interesting light fruity beer with some earthy hops and just a touch of tartness. raspberry is the main fruit component, and they do it justice here. pretty standard beers for the most part, but this one was cool."
