3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2011 Bottle. The pour was a medium to dark red almost a cranberry in color with an average sized (1-2 finger) fizzy pink head that dissipated quite quickly and had fair lacing.
The aroma was extremely strong with the scent of Raspberry’s and had a mild sweet yeast odor to it and not much else.
It tasted moderately sweet and slightly malty with a nice dose of Raspberry from beginning to end with a hint of yeast at the finish that left the flavor lingering on the taste buds for a nice long time after the swallow.
Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and slightly watery in texture yet had a dry feel to it at the finish with a nice lively carbonation.
Overall kind of a sweet brew with a lot of flavor, but it is more like Lambic than a Fruit Beer. Although it might be quite tasty mixed with a dry stout.

Übertrieben in der Säure, wenn man vorher das Apricot hatte, ansonsten sehr fruchtig, sehr belebend und stellenweise wirklich echt wirkend mit einem netten Teil von Himbeeren, wenn auch der Verdacht der Künstlichkeit genährt wird.

Pours out of the bottle in a deep pink-red colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of raspberries and jam. Taste of fresh raspberries, respberry jam, syrup, leaves and juice. Easy and nice drinkable although it lacks some body. Nice one though.

This is poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance is a nice looking hazy red color with a thick two and a half fingered reddish white foamy and bubbly head. Once the head starts to die in a concave sort of fashion, there’s a ton of thick foamy lacing (nice show!).
The smell has a ton of raspberry up front in a sweet sort of way.
The taste is sweet raspberry with a decent wheat kick near the end.
On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium in body with a decent sessionable aspect about it. The carbonation seems to be extremely smooth in this one.
Overall, I like it. This is a pretty good raspberry ale with a decent refreshing quality that’ll make your summers enjoyable.

Rötliches Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch süß nach Himbeeren, etwas malzig, hopfig, so ist auch der Geschmack.
