2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sour raspberry aroma, full raspberry flavor, slight sour note at the end. One of the best fruit beers I have had because the flavor is so full.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This was about what I expected, but probably a bit better. Delicious raspberry aroma. A cloudy maroon color. Sweet and a bit sour. The raspberry flavor is good, not too overwhelming.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured deep ruby red with a sizeable pink head. Lovely pungent nose of fresh raspberries. Quite intense. Slightly hazy with light carbonation. Sweet taste heavy on the raspberries, which is good. A slightly bitter finish but not unpleasant. VERY drinkable. I could have chugged mine but held off. Medium body and a slightly creamy texture. Overall one of the best fruit beers I have ever had, pints down.

Bottle. Pours a reddish brown. The aroma is very strong raspberry, which is nice. The flavor starts out pretty nice, if a bit sweet, but it starts to lose a lot on the finish. There is a strange taste on the finish, not bitter but very sour. Itís a small thing right at the end - it doesnít last - but it is unpleasant. The body is light, but it is refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a dark red with no head to speak of. Aroma was raspberries, and so was the taste. Very enjoyable all around but didnít really taste like "beer". Then again, this is the first Iíve had of this style. Iíll have to rate again when Iíve sampled more.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of tart raspberries, slightly acidic. Taste is more tart sweet raspberries. Reminds me of raspberry jelly cookies and has a slight raspberry vinaigrette taste. I enjoyed it. It was very tart and slightly sweet.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy reddish amber. Tart raspberry aroma with hints of cinnamon and sweet vanilla. Loads of authentic raspberry flavor, medium bodied and refreshing, with just a faint whisper of nutmeg and a tart finish. This isnít quite New Glarus Raspberry Tart but as this is my favorite, readily available fruit beer to date, well done and delicious.

1Pt. 2.7 FL OZ bottle from the LCBO. Pours a very obvious deep red colored beverage, especially noticeable in the head of the beer which is a very noticeable pink color from all the red in the beer. Smells like a fresh raspberry. Also tastes like one, somewhat unfortunately. Some other fruit beers, say ones by St-Ambroise or so on, have been pleasantly surprising when they actually have a strong, malty, or hoppy, beer taste to them. Having a great aroma of fruit but a taste of good beer is a wicked combo, but when its fruit+fruit+more fruit.. Itís too much. And I think this beer is too much.

pink head reminded me of Lindemanís Framboise. Some sweet malt behind lots of fruit in the nose. Nice body with a strong raspberry flavor and sweet finish.
