Light nut brown to amber color with a fizzy tan head. Aroma is of hops and raspberry; somewhat toasty. Sweet to then lightly bitter. The nutmeg and raspberry flavors are a little muted. Nice medium palate.

Aroma is fresh with nutmeg and artifical raspberry. Sweet malt, raspberry flavor. Not alot of depth here. Thin and crisp. Overall, ok if the beer selection is limited.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 Odd but not bad. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer pours a nice copper color with a small tan head. There is a light sour aroma that was a bit disappointing. The flavor is malty and sour with a definite raspberry taste. There is a bitterness that lingers.

Tried one of these that my friend brought over and I was impressed. Had some nice after taste of nutmeg and coffee. Its hard to get however

DocLock (7920) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2004
Decent reddish amber color. Aromas of malt, slight raspberry, and spice. Finishes smooth, malty, and fruity. Balanace seems a tad off. Not bad.

Head dissipates too fast. Smell is fruity. I hate fruit in my beer. Light hops. A decent beer, but all in all there's a whole lot better in this category. I wouldn't go out of my way to look for this beer. Pete's definitely makes better brews than this one.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 26, 2004
Frothy off white avg size head that dissipates fairly fast. Clear orange/red body. Aroma isn't too bad.. raspberry, caramel. Taste has a malty raspberry flavor, but not a big fan of it.

Price paid: $6.99 for a 6-pack Nice deep amber, but very small head that goes away quickly. Smell leaves something to be desired for. I bought this for two reasons: seasonal and the word "nutmeg" on the label. Nutmeg, my favorite spice, is nowhere to be found in the aroma. It does have a slight raspberryish type smell, but it almost smells like cheap extract (which is might very well be). OK, I can taste the nutmeg a tiny bit, but it's masked by a cheap raspberry taste... I love raspberries, but not this beer. Mouthfeel is actually kinda weird... reminds me a bit of a ginger ale feel. Not impressed. As far as seasonals go, this one is not in the "better" category. I suppose I should have known to stay away from the new Pete's.

2003 Draft in Rochester. Tastes like it is contract brewed by Lipton. Alcoholic version of Brisk. Though more carbonated and worse tasting. Drainpour.

Wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. Light copper, decent head. Nose has raspberry, a bit off. Lots of raspberry in the flavor, don't really notice the alleged nutmeg. Lots of malty, actually has a decent sticky, chewy body. Is a mite overly sweet, tastes a bit artificially cloying, but really quite better than I thought Pete's was capable of.
