Wow, was hoping for a lot more than what this beer gave me. Reddish, pink pour with very small head; minimal to no lacing. Flavor is more reminiscent of a wine cooler than a beer, very tart, somewhat sour. Not totally terrible, but nothing I would buy again.

Bottle. Pours a clear pinkish amber body with a rather large fizzy white head that vanished quickly. The nose is rather sweet with a raspberry hard-candy like fruity note. Not much else beyond the fruit going on. The flavor is pretty awful though. Very thin and watery with an almost seltzer like quality to it. The raspberry isn’t actually all that sweet, which you think would help, but it just leaves the base beer all the more exposed. It’s just real hard to pull of a decent tasting gluten free beer. It’s not the worst thing in the world, if you’re into seltzer drinks.

"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."

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 Dog’s Raspberry Ale and avoid this.

Block (2324) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Way over carbonated. The beer foamed as soon as the cap was off and it was very difficult to pour. Aroma is numbing, like cough syrup. This beer is horrible, one of the worst I’ve had. A mixture between cough syrup and vodka with a weird fruit extract added in.

Bottle at home from notes. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have raspberries, mild pale malts, caramel, thin and spritzy, more raspberry cola than beer, not my thing.

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.

Rated on 4-16-2013 (Bottle) The appearance of this beer is a very small, very fizzy off-white head that quickly dissipated, transparent body, fast rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is raspberries, sweet and sorghum. The flavor is very sweet, light raspberries and sorghum. The mouthfeel is very dry and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, I couldn’t finish my pour of this beer as I outright did not like the flavor of it. Next!
