2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A reddish to light brown coloured beer with a pinkish coloured, weak head. A potent raspberry aroma, but nothing else. Medium bodied, and prickly mouthfeel. A prickly raspberry flavour with a hint of sweetness. Served over ice, i can imagine this would be a passable summer beverage, otherwise, nothing spectacular.

Yet another "where’s the beer?" offering from Melville. It tastes nice, but so does A&W Rootbeer...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Single from the LCBO. Pour a clean amber-red colour with a creamy off-white (slightly yellow and pink) head, good retention and some dirty lace. Mild aromas of raspberry juice and rusty water. The taste is really sweet though, with the fruit being light again. Some light grain lingers, after some sourness that helps the big sugar mouth. Still, not enough to save this over-sweet fruit beer.

250 ml bottle. Pours a clear pinkish red with light wight head. Aromas of stale raspberries and light malts. Flavors of sweet raspberry juice. Easy to drink if that’s a plus.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
275ml Brown bottle, slightly out of date when opened on 23 Aug 2013: poured into a chalice at home.
Raspberry red in colour (no surprises there then!) with a pink-ish collar and mini-wisp for a head.
Raspberry aroma (no surprises here either), with some added sweetness.
Guess what it tastes like: you’ve got it, raspberries. Actually it’s OK, in fact a lot better than I expected. Not really up there with Belgian fruit flavoured brews (the better ones anyway), refreshing and almost tart beneath the initial sweetness.
I’m not a big fan of fruit beers, however there is nothing really bad about this brew, just not my thing.

pours clear pale red with a small pink head, some retention and lacing. raspberry purée, sweet berry jam - cloying, lager fruitiness base, dust, herbs and grass. moderate to low carbonation, light body - silky and almost syrupy, very fruity, cloying and slightly herbal finish. enjoyable for a sweet fermented fruit juice. still a DP.
