FROTHINGSLOSH (6537) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2012
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.

r464 (2254) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2012
Sweet and tart, but with a bit of earthiness as well. Citrus and raspberry, watery. Might be better as a summer thirst quencher.

DocLock (9687) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2012
Pours dark straw with pinkish edges, frothy white head, a lot of carbonation streams. Looks like a smacked ass. Hopefully it smells better. Nose is grainy and plasticy, with some raspberry Jolly Ranchery notes. Tastes tart, soapy, hoppy, with some raspberry and orange zest at mid-palate. Light and watery.

cheap (5216) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Smell of mild raspberry taffy. Looks like sprkling rose wine. Taste is off but yet raspberry, of course. Starts to come across like a spritzer. Yes, very much like sweet wine and lemon lime/ginger ale mixed. Just not quite as sweet. Goes down fairly easy after a rough day.

Very pretty, almost coral-colored pour. Floral aroma. A light and fruity ale. A nice fruit brew.

Sampled in boulder. Very skeptical of this one but it is fair. A bit too bubbly for my tasting but the malts are really rough.

Aurelius (5006) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Rosé appearance, no head. Plain label, Eco-Green marketing crap. One of the stinkiest beers I’ve ever come across - chemical, plasticky, like a new air mattress with some raspberry jam. This is like a bad homebrew/winemaking experiment. Sour, weird, bad. I’m bailing on this rating and pouring it out.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2011
[Bottle] Light amber pour without any head to it. Sweet peach and raspberry nose seems pretty genuine. Weak fruity taste includes mainly raspberry mixed with corn syrup, paper and sorgham. Very high carbonation levels remind me of a soda. Not as bad as the other beers from this brewery. In fact, it would be a fine beer for hot weather.

RobertDale (5260) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Sample at KC Beerfest 10-22. Comes a pinkish amber with a small white head. Mild aroma of malt and raspberries. Taste is malt, raspberries and a bit of hops. OK.
