1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
[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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
10/16/11. 12oz bottle. Clear amber pour with pinkish/purplish hues, under a fizzy white head that sizzles away and doesn’t lace. Very light, tart fruity aroma of candied raspberry. The flavor is much the same - it’s like raspberry jello made with metal water. Thin and overcarbonated. Meh.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Ledgers. Pours rather rose with a few bubbles/no head. Aroma is more perfumey/floral than raspberry. Near med body. Flavor is floral, even rose, with some raspberry. There’s a papery flavor in the finish.
