COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
3R Raspberry Ale is an award winning ale with the right balance of fruit flavor and aroma. Made from sorghum, corn extract, natural raspberry puree, orange peel, hops, and yeast. Not overly sweet, the Oregon grown fruit puree creates a beautiful body color with a natural raspberry flavor.

Pours a pale rose color. Smell is mild, some raspberry. Taste is tart, raspberry, somewhat wine like, highly carbonated mouthfeel. Different and unique, not a bad beer.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2012 Smells like raspberries. Pours orange with a white head. Tastes like a wine cooler. Not a great fruit beer.

Bottle. Poured hazy reddish amber color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate raspberry fruit aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium raspberry sweet flavor with a medium sweet fruit finish of short to moderate duration. Soft fruit beer.

Man, I am glad I don’t have one of these new fangled diseases people have been getting where you can’t have gluten. I like beer. This stuff is made from sorgum and "corn extract" whatever that is. It is a ight pinkish brown golden color w/ no head. Nose is sort of vaguely malty and toffee-ish but kind of strange around the edges. Taste is a bit better w/ some tart fruits playing off a touch of sweetness but still a weird non-beery taste in the background is hard to ignore. Carbonation is crisp which would suit a brew like this but the texture is a bit oily. Overall, I have tried worse gluten free beer like concoctions but I will be pleased to not run into this one again.

My first gluten free beer. And It was pretty good. Poors very light, has a pretty sweet taste of raspberry.

12oz bottle, pink label. Pink orange color. Bright white ring of fizz. Aroma of fruit puree, raspberry essence. Tart flavor form the adjunct corn extract. Finishes with a sweet raspberry note. Much better than Tread Lightly Ale, still gluten free. (3265)

12 oz. bottle. $2 at Lemon Tree. First beer I’ve seen with the "Nutrition Facts" on the label. Fizzy pinkish body and head. Light raspberry smell. Nothing to replace the missing malt smell. Taste is a bit of raspberry in light sparkling wine. For a brew with corn in it, it manages to rein in the usual corn sweetness. Instead, a dry, fizzy brew with raspberry in balance. Not much bitterness, so the light dryness carries the day. Best sorghum beer I’ve had.

Cybercat (3198) - Georgia, USA - FEB 28, 2012
Pours a clear, dark golden amber with a tinge of red and a fairly thick, if not persistent, pale tan head. Raspberry dominates the aroma, which does have some sorghum to it. Flavor has firm sorghum and raspberry notes, and is slightly sweet - pretty good for a non-gluten beer. Texture is smooth and has average body but plenty of fizz. One of the better gluten free beers I have had.

Bottle (free, thanks Josh!) pours a clear rose’ with a feeble attempt at a head. Scent is musty berries. Taste is bad and fruity.

Crap - now with berry! +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a salmon-orange color with a large soapy light pink head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy artificial sugar, artificial berry, yeast and had an odd off presence. The flavor was grainy cereal, artificial sugar, artificial berry and was a touch medicinal. The finish was medium length tangy berry. Medium body. Awful, which is a step up for these guys.
