4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep red, small to no head. Aroma and taste of fresh rasberries. A tartness that is improved by warming. An excellent beer. Very impressive.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark red. Huge aroma of fresh raspberries, with a big salivary secretion as one result as well as tears of joy. Flavour is also wonderful, just pure, clean and fresh raspberries. Light, perfect sparkling. A masterpiece!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy body with a deep cherry hue. Creamy pink head that collapsed and left some decent lace. Nice raspberry fruit aroma. Smells very ripe, complex, sweet, sour, and mouthwatering. Tastes like very fat, sweet, ripe fruit. Overripe even, with an oxidized quality to it. Mild oak and a nice chocolately note as well. Has a tart and tangy bite like a good lambic and a funky spicy element. A very solid fruit beer. Thanks again to bunkypop for sending me another fine beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Dark red coloured. Clear. Pink/red huge lasting head. Aroma is very fruity. Raspberry obviously. Is very sweet in aroma and flavour, which is a little cloying. This is like drinking sodapops. Has a very light sourness to it, but the sweet raspberryflavour is the dominant. Ends up fruity and sweet with a light undertone of sourness. Thanks to CaptainCougar for trading this.

Delicious raspberry aroma, like a handful of macerted fruit. Dark blood red clear withdark pink head. Medium thick body with medium carbonation. Huge raspberry start, sweet and fruity. Finish is juicy and acidic, with fruity acidic-sweet after. A bit cloying, but not overly so.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2004 Bottled. Dark red. Ripe raspberry aroma. Balsamic, but overly sweet. Pleasant rounded mouthfeel and peppery sugary finish. Beatiful flavourwise, but way too sweet.

Very red color with a pink head. This is a beer to be shared. I can see using some in an average gueuze to add some flavor. Aroma and flavor is all rasberries. Not too sweet and not too tart but just right. Could be my favorite fruit beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2004 Pours blood red. Aroma is sweet, slightly tart raspberries. The flavor is the same sweet with a slightly sharp raspberry tartness. The aroma and flavor are of very fresh ripe berries. Excellent beer.

Extravagant nose full of Raspberry greets you as take in this beer. Poured a dark purple with a slight pink head which clung to the sides of the glass.
Very tart on the palate, hence the name, but it went down real smooth leaving a sweet after taste. If I could of gotten more at the Philly RB gathering I would have but the bottle emptied quick. A good fruit beer.
