3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.355 bottle. Clear, dark crimson color and a small, reddish head. Aroma of raspberries, grass, citruses, and a hint of sugar. Taste is obviously very sweet and fruity though it has the sourness typical for raspberries too. Medium body, slick texture, and average carbonation. Finish seems very genuinely raspberry-like, kudos. Overall a standard but well-made fruit beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at the Anchor Tap, 03/01/15.
Cherry red with a decent crimson covering.
Nose is raspberry syrup, light straw, faint smoke, light cherry and red berry notes.

Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet close.
Decent enough fruit beer, better than I’d expected, if a little sweet overall!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle purchased at the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Deep red in colour with a pinkish coloured head, good retention, excellent lacing. The aroma has lots of raspberries, white sugar sweetness, a bit tart. The flavour is quite sweet with lots of raspberries, jam and juice, tart as well. Sweet mouthfeel, light body, medium carbonation. Finishes long and sweet with more raspberries. The raspberry flavour in this is nice. Never syrupy, actually tastes like real fruit.

Sweet, similar to framboise but not as sour. Would be very nice poured over vanilla ice cream. Not sure I could drink an entire bottle.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Reddish, sweet, fruity like raspberry candy. Very sweet, uber candy, and not really balanced. I wouldn’t say "offensive" but I wouldn’t say "beer" either.
