Light honey colored, cloudy, looks like a weiss beer. Aroma is raspberry, sweet, hints of yeast. Flavor is pretty sweet. Nice summer beer, one that a think alot of none beer drinkers would enjoy.

Hazy gold color with a light creamy head . The aroma is very light, almost non-existant, a touch of raspberry, but it could be discounted easily. Finishes lightly malty and surprisingly good. Almost no flavor here. A run of the mill cookie cutter franchise micro, eh.

Mild aroma, and the flavor comes through the tasting with a one-second delay. Drinkable, gentle, with a seltzer-water like quick finish. Hazy pink grapefruit juice appearance. (on tap at Ringlers/Crystal Ballroom, Portland)

Wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Tap poured a light, light red hue with a thin head. Enjoyable berry flavor that isn’t over done and doesn’t lose sight of its hop balance.

Pink with a pinkish head, very raspberry and maybe a little lemon citrus. Finish is short.

A fruit beer, but you would never know. I tasted a lot of Wheat (which is probably not correct).

On tap at the Hillsboro location..wait do they have more than one in Hillsboro? Anyway, pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A light fruity nose, some earthy malt. The flavor is basically similar: light and clear berries, earthy dry malt, some light crispness. OK.

Not bad, but nothing really great. The fruit flavoring is pretty evident, and the alcohol is nonexistent. I’d much rather have a Hammerhead.

Not bad for a fruit beer, key words being for a fruit beer. Awfully sweet. Someone told me this was good mixed with their terminator stout, but why ruin a perfectly good terminator stout?

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2004 I can get this on tap at about 10 different places within walking distance of my house in Portland. Ruby is a great summer beer: nice and easy-drinking, pleasantly fruity with a great wheat flavor and character. It’s light and smooth on the palate, yet finishes with a delicious flourish. This is a great one to have on the way back home from work.
