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.

355 ml bottle. Pours a clear, pinkish orange colour with a thin white head. Fruity aroma of raspberry, orange peel, corn and a mild floral note. Floral flavour with raspberry and a dry, slightly bitter finish. Light body with a watery texture and fizzy carbonation. Reminds me of a wine cooler. Not my thing.

No BOD. Pours a light amber with a very slight red hue. Nice head with normal retention and very good lacing. Light nose of raspberry over something that is unpleasant and medicinal - like old corn stored in isopropyl alcohol. Light bodied, normal carbonation. The flavor profile is unpleasant. It tastes like a very poorly compounded raspberry medicine. As the raspberry fades, you are left with only the terrible medicinal flavor. I like raspberry ales, but this one is terrible. Try Thirsty Dogís Raspberry Ale and avoid this.

"nothing too exciting but nice to know i can semi-enjoy a brew if i ever have to go this route. refreshing if one dimensional raspberry puree aroma and flavor. not a whole lot else going on. sweet, a touch of tart, refreshing, simple, and non-offensive."

Had at the Great Arkansas Beer Festival 2014. Of their beers that Iíve had so far, this is by far the best. The raspberries hide any off flavors or lack of flavors. Decent.

Pours an amber color with off-white head. Raspberry on the nose with some other sweetness as well. Finishes sweet.

MunBro (537) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 4, 2014
Aroma like the raspberry scented cream I once had to rub on my girlfriendís catís anal glands. Taste it what I imagine the afformentioned cream might taste like. The appearance is really the only good thing this beer has going for it - a nice bubbly pink pour. Smells and tastes downright funky and gross. Poured out after one sip. I weep for celiac people who have to drink this swill in place of real beer.

This beer has a light orange and pink coloring with a light head. The aroma consists of raspberry, spice, and hops. This beer was sweeter then the others but the raspberry taste does not last long when the typical New Planet after taste kicks in.

Bottle. Nose of artificial raspberry and that strange sickly-sweet buckwheat/sorghum odor that creeps into these kinds of beers. Pours ultra-clear pink with orange tendencies and a noisy, fizzy beige head that doesnít last very long. Taste is sweet but not cloying, has a flat, airy, and lightly stripping tendency, but no really bitterness or tartness. Raspberry dominates, and thankfully redirects from the failed nose to taste natural; light mineral underneath and some twinging as the sorghum imitates wild phenolic excess. Medium body is a bit flat. Honestly, Iím fine with this, probably more as a component of a mixer than straight, but I wouldnít call it bad.

bottle - This gluten free beer smells like.... well, maybe itís raspberries. Itís odd. Overripe fruit? The flavor is sweet and bland with a very thin body. Sugary. Bleh. Sadly my advice for those with a gluten allergy is still to become a wine connoisseuer.
