3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours red with a thin off white head. Cranberry juice aroma. Cranberry hits the palate first, and is then joined by wheat and blueberry. Cranberry and raspberry stick around for a brief finish. Thin bodied and fairly effervescent. Not as exciting as their other offerings.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Was on tap at Yukon Jack’s. This beer hit the spot. It was fairly sour and not overly sweet. Almost like a club soda.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Friday the Firkenteenth at the Grey Lodge Pub. Pours a translucent, purpleish red with a thin, creamy white head. Aroma is all berries, mostly the fake, jarred jam kind. Flavor is the same, overly sweet, berries, jelly. Crisp, sweet finish. My girlfriend liked it, but for me it wasn’t quite authentic.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Capones. Pours a raspberry pinkish red with a medium bubbly white head that left sticky lacing. Aroma of mixed berries (kind of like the mix berry jelly packs at diners), kind of artificial and light hints of wheat malt. Flavor of tart slightly tart berries. The berry in the flavor was less artificial than the aroma. This beer was dry, crisp and refreshing. Served almost frozen at Capones and this cold the beer was refreshing. Could see it being a hit with some of the Philly hipsters in Fishtown.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Capone’s. Poured a medium reddish/amberish/brownish color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of berries (although on the artificial side) and citrus. Tastes of berries (lots of different ones and better than the aromas), citrus, and lightly earthy. Light tart finish.

Clear. Slightly sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of berries, raspberries, blackberries, and malts. Light to medium body. Lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Sweet, berry finish. Pretty good for a fruit beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Craft. This one pours magenta with off-pink fizzy head. Nose is fresh raspberries, mild earthy and citrus. Tastes alcopoppy, with the raspberry flavor being authentic, but there is not much complexity here. Like a slightly less sweet raspberry wine cooler.
