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: It’s no Indian Wells Raspberry Ale, but it’s not something I’d like to drink, either.

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.

Fruity aroma. Golden bronze coloured fruity raspberry flavour. A little thin on the palate. A hint of dryness in a malt finish.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a short lived head, over a clear, copper colored (SRM 10) body....nose is light raspberry, grain.....taste is light beery sweet, then a light, slightly sour finish.....mouth feel is light and watery, carbonation makes for a soda like quality. This is a very light beverage, with minimal flavor and aroma, except for the raspberry. BJCP 5/3/10/4/5

Poured at the speed blogging - Beer bloggers conference
Nice rosy color, clear with a thing head. The aroma was light with berry and some hops. I liked the flavor it was subtle. A good summer time beer for those hot days you need to swig a good one. Nice beer. The flavors are not off with the Sorghum so that is nice.
