degbert (1642) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle. Now that is an odd color, friends -- somewhere between peach, pink, orange, and yellow. Head is high, white, and quick-dissipating. Nose is raspberries sprayed down with Aqua Net. Odd on the palate -- the raspberry is there, but there’s no sweetness and the fruit is drowned in a streak that alternately reminds me of rubber cement and Bactine. Finish is long and rubbery. Um, no.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Appearance: Light clear rose petal hues under a fizzy pinkish head that disappears quickly into nothing. Swirls fizzy and disappears quickly.
Nose: A bit dank – fades in and out. Lemon and raspberry seeds along the sides – bitter, dry, and tannic. More dank darkness comes out in the middle.
Palate: Fizzy and watery with waterlogged white bread and cake. Weird banana finish with a raspberry drizzle. Lemon raspberry vinaigrette. Generic bright lemon on top. Weird chewy sorghum middle.
Final Thoughts: Very little of anything. Definitely not a good beer at all, gluten free aspect aside. Skip and go for some cider or hit up Dogfish Head for their delicious gluten-free offering.

Ferris (12143) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2013
Bottle - Raspberry, vinegar and booze. Clear reddish gold with no head. Acidic raspberry and pop like. A refreshing drink but not very beer like.

ROGUE (2179) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - SEP 9, 2013
On tap at Epcot Center. Pours a clear copper color with a small slightly pink tinged head. Very faint berry aroma, and light biscuit, but a bit more earthy. Flavor has firm sorghum and raspberry notes, and is slightly sweet. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation

Padron4KM (792) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 31, 2013
12 oz bottle.
Weird color. Dark orange with a pink tint. Little to no head, no lace.
Aroma is musty, with light aroma of raspberries.
Flavor? Can’t taste the raspberries. Light sourness on the finish.
Glad I’m not allergic to gluten.

SilentJo (68) - Chocowinity, North Carolina, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Poured with a foamy head that hung around the edge. Fruity aroma, tasted weakly of fruity wine. If tasted blindly, I’d never guess this was a beer.

penguinfinity (107) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle. Blind bought at Whole Foods in Darien CT. Smells okay, lightly fruity. No head. Looks like a wine cooler. Almost no taste. Would not buy this again.

reebtogi (5522) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 15, 2013
355ml bottle pours a pinkish golden color with a vigorously poured finger of white head that dissipated very quickly leaving a couple of specks of lacing. Aroma is raspberry and some kind of undetermined funk. Taste is a raspberry tartness with some fruity sweetness. Light bodied with mild carbonation. A decent GF brew, but nothing really notable here.
