Tmoney99 (11224) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 12, 2009
Bottle from Party Source. Poured clear reddish brown with a large off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Good raspberry friut aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations and went well with my grilled cheese.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2009
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.

Ernest (6422) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, pink, mostly diminishing. Body is medium reddish-purple. Aroma is notes of raspberry/cherry/etc. candy. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, syrupy texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Sickeningly sweet soda pop, nothing more.

Lowe1983 (1367) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUN 6, 2009
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.

bhensonb (11673) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 28, 2009
Bottle from Whole Foods. Ruby liquid with a pinkish head. Raspberry is the aroma. Flavor is sweet raspberry. Not even much seed bitter. Seems med. body with frothy carbonation. Not so bad. Goes fairly well with salad. Kind of fun.

fidelis83 (2045) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 20, 2009
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.
