2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2011 The aroma is very weak with mixed fruit and sweet malts. The appearance is light pink with a thin head. The taste is not bad up front with a fruity-malty presence but the aftertaste is like insecticide. The palate is thin but smooth. Overall a beer that has great intentions and Iím sure its quality but fails to deliver.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a medium copper with a pink twinge to it with no head whatsoever. Pretty much of a neutral aroma, brief hints of raspberries. Flavor is pretty artificial, weak berry kool-aid comes to mind. Not very beer like at all. Mouthfeel has that slick low-carb feel to it that leaves you thirsty. Way below the par of what I experienced a few months back with their Tread Lighlty Ale which was not bad at all.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a pinkish amber with a thin white head. Aroma is berries and buttered grits. Flavor is that of berry flavored water. Would be very enjoyable on a hot day.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A: The pour is a pink color, almost like cherry 7-Up with a very short lived foam.
S: Definitely some butter along with cardboard and paper, smells almost like a paper mill. There is not much raspberry to it along with some mild sugar and grass, perhaps some straw and water.
T: The flavor is similarly poor. Lots of wet cardboard and paper with a mild raspberry flavor. A bit of sweetness as well as some grainy sugar and a touch of metal.
M: Watery and light with a medium carbonation.
O: Itís no Indian Wells Raspberry Ale, but itís not something Iíd like to drink, either.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice balance of sweet and tart berry flavors but not enough beer essence and what does comes through just seems a little off.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz bottle into tulip. Ugh...this thing smells foul. Smells like vinegar and chemicals. Pours a clear deep gold with a small white quickly-collapsing head. Taste is sweet and tart with no bitterness. Tastes like raspberry seltzer water with a hint of beer. Corn and alcohol are noticeable in the finish. Carbonation is medium, body is thin. Not good, but what do you expect from a sorghum beer?

Fruit and gluten free could be a bad combo but this works for me. Especially on a hot day. Raspberry is balanced by the base beer and it is not syrupy sweet. This is better than some regular fruit beers.
