Real nice mellow fruit beer. Nothing fancy, just real simple, drinkable and flavorful.

RBSG 2013. Thanks to Gregg for sharing this one. Raspberry and light citrus in the aroma and flavor. I do not pick up the rose hips and the hops are very light.

Bottle at RBSG. From notes. Tart and sour with a little funk and loads of raspberry. I would totally but this if I ever find it again.

TheHOFF43 (1758) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Bottle shared by DalzAle at RBSG, thanks Greg. Pours red with a bit of tartness on the nose. Lots of raspberry juice flavor, nothing else really comes through. Wish there was more to it, but it was an easy drinker.

Bacterial (1721) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle shared by Greg at RBSG - thanks!! Beautiful red pour and a great sour funky raspberry nose. Taste is nice, but perhaps too reminiscent of fruit juice added to a very slightly hoppy beer.

portableparty (1955) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Pours bright hazy pink with a thin tight off white head. Aroma is strong raspberries like jam. Taste is watery malt raspberries and slight sour tartness. Palate is thin watery and dry.

nuplastikk (4702) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Tap at Clips of Faith. Bright orange-red body. Thin, oily head. Raspberry tones, some faint funky yeast notes underneath. The rose hips give it a sort of artificial feel, but it is still an enjoyable beverage. An interesting one-off, but not exactly one I’d seek out again.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 31, 2013
On tap at Apex, pours a vibrant red with a small pinkish head. Aroma of cherries, raspberries and other berries – lots of residual sugars. Flavour brings out muted unsweetened cherries and raspberries, and some weird off-notes that detract a lot. Dry and fruity, but this one is all over the place – not sure what the goal was here. Not too enjoyable.

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Pours a deep candy red color. Aroma of raspberry juice and a bit if sugary sweetness. Flavors were sweet, a bit sour, with lots of candy raspberry flavor. A bit of bitterness as well. Mouthfeel was not excessively rich, but very clean and refreshing. One if those "thirst quenching" types of beers. Definitely would be a hit with the ladies.

Sample at the brewery. Comes light red with a small pink head. Aroma of berries. Taste is raspberries and other fruits. Somewhat sour. Refreshing but not much more.
