3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Color is much more like a beer than any other raspberry beverage I’ve had in Michigan over the weekend. Taste has much more hoppiness and malt to it. Raspberries are there sharing the taste instead of overpowering it.

Had this one on nitro draught at the brewpub in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Nice raspberry mediated by a soft breadiness.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to pint at OP. Looks and smells solid; raspberry and wheat. Tastes like it smells with a decent mouthfeel. A good example of the style!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had on draft at the brewpub. A decent offering, but nothing to write home about. The raspberry dominates the palate, leaving me wanting more. All in all, drinkable, but I would probably pass next time.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brew pub. Pours a weak yellow. Almost no head. Mild raspberry aroma. Plenty of raspberries in the flavor. Very mild wheat background. Relatively weak palate as I would expect. Overall a decent drinkable beer. Perfectly fine to drink while enjoying the excent food at the Olde Peninsula.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
For those that enjoy an Abita Purple Haze. Pours a foggy yellow. Get raspberries in all aspects of the brew. Little bit of wheaty malt, clean finish with an adequate amount of hops to hold off some of the sweetness. Still too sweet for me.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Olde Peninsula brewpub. Golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of fresh raspberries and a little wheat backbone. Taste of raspberries, wheat, mild sweet malt. A touch over-carbonated but balanced and not too sweet. Finishes up a little bitter. Decent fruit beer effort.

Most definitely not to my taste. Big raspberry nose, with raspberry dominating everything else.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted 4/26/08. Sampler from the brewpub. Hazy with a golden hue. Trace off-white head. Fruity and berry esters in the nose. Light bodied and crisp. Unoffensive. Low effervescence. Smooth palate. Moderate attempt.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft sample at OPB. Poured a hazy orange color with an average white head that mostly lasted and produced fair lacing. Medium raspberry aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Moderate sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short duration. Ok brew, not my style.
