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.

12 oz. bottle. $2 at Lemon Tree. First beer Iíve 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 Iíve had.

Cybercat (3384) - 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.

beernovice39 (3140) - Montana, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle (free, thanks Josh!) pours a clear roseí with a feeble attempt at a head. Scent is musty berries. Taste is bad and fruity.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4973) - 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 (1938) - 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 (7915) - 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 (4118) - 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.
