Tap @ Falling Rock. Dark pour with thick foamy reddish head. Organic aroma of raspberry, choco. Tartness balanced quickly by chocolate malts. I like it. I was expecting bigger fruit and lasting tartness but I enjoy the maltiness.

Tap at Max’s in Baltimore. Thanks Tom for sharing! Poured a much deeper than expected clear cola ruby with a temporary pinkish fizz head. Nose is very similar to New Glarus Raspberry Tart: seedy raspberry, true and sweet, with blackberry. Pretty crazy. Taste is awesomely tart and spicier with raspberry jam and just a hint of sourness. Not quite seedy or as intense as the New Glarus equivalent but very rich stuff. Delicious.

Sample at the Secret Stash Bash. Dark red color with a small, very pink head. The aroma is intense raspberries, with some vanilla, resin, and caramel. Very sweet and tart, with just a touch of hop bitterness. Light to medium body, sticky, and astringent. Overall, this is a very aggressive fruit beer, with blunt fruit aromas and even colorful foam. I approve.

Raspberries! Even the head on this beer is pink with raspberries. Pours a medium dark red. Aroma is lots of raspberry punch. Taste is not overly sweet or syrupy as you might expect. It strikes a nice balance of sweet, tart, and brewed goodness. Finish is sweet and dry enough. Surprisingly good fruit brew.

ENBF. Pours deep purplish with a pale pinkish head. Aroma of lemony esters and raspberry. Lighter side of medium bodied with spritzy like texture. Flavor of wheat malts, raspberry, and mild funk. Very dry. Needs more residual sugars for balance- since fruit does naturally contain sugars. Ferment that out and you have that nasty extract that you add to baking recipes

Pours a dark red with a small head. The aroma has notes of cherry, wood, & chocolate with a little bit of nutty character all around. The flavor has a good bit of raspberry and some cherry, there is a nice tartness all around and everything is balanced by a bit of bitter chocolate.
I rather liked this one.
