2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from the Binnyís in Orland Park, Illinois: It poured a ruby/pink body with a sizeable pinkish white head. It smelled like strawberry jam and pretty much tasted the same. Which means, I sípose, that it would be better if it was thicker and I could spread it on bread. But Iím out of bread, so I guess this is okay for today. My dick cousin Mark would like this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a reddish-amber color with a pink head. Aroma is sweet of caramel malts and raspberries mostly. Tart raspberry flavor and some sugar dominate the flavor. Better than the cherry but itís still not what I was hoping for.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours deep reddish copper with a tall dusty pink head that has good retention. Aroma is raspberry, straw, red apple, wheat, a touch of caramel and dusty grains, sweet floral notes as it warms. Flavor is fresh raspberries, sweet grains, wheat cereal, green and red apples, floral perfume, light lemon-lime citrus notes and buttery pie crust. Palate is thin to medium thickness with a rather dry feel all over and a slightly acidic finish. Better than the other two varieties but still a little over done on the fruit, I wonder if a couple months of aging would tone down the fruit a little and let more malt notes come out or just make it taste stale and oxidized.
