Raspberry in your face! I canít say Iím a fan. The aroma and flavor are completly overpowered by the fruit. Very, very sweet and acidic.

ContemplateBeer (1653) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Aroma: Fresh raspberries, not overly tart and not overly sweet; maybe a touch of mint. The base beer is completely masked. Appearance: Nearly opaque raspberry red with a pink tinted head. Flavor: Raspberry with some slight tartness; doesnít seem to be sweetened. Simple and pure. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Simple, clean fruit beer thatís worth a try.

Botella. Clear pit pale amber-red colour with a medium mostly diminishing pinkish head. Malty Raspberry aroma. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a mild sourness with cherry malt and a pleasant soft sweetness.

This dark red beer poured into a flute with a modest pink head and an intense raspberry aroma. If you like raspberries, itís pretty good, since thatís about all you can taste. Itís refreshing and tasty, but itís not really beer.

Bottle from my 3-year-old son as a present for my birthday. Donít know where he got the fake id.

This completes my non-lambic raspberry trifecta (Alaskan, Wyders, Sam Smith) of the last 24 hours. Donít think Iíll repeat it any time soon. Basically, raspberry juice with a bit of wheat beer character. Sweet and sticky, tasty enough but nothing like beer. Deep red pour, pink head, Intense raspberry aroma, sweet rich juice dominating the flavor. None of the dryness that the Alaskan had to offer. Not sure if thatís a good thing or a bad thing.
