had on tap @ brewpub during 2nd visit. Half pint. Odd looking fungus like white collections of sud atop a raspberry puree body. Served not cold, more cool. I did not find this over-the-top or overly intense as some have mentioned. A medium sharp rasp tart bite, smooth and enjoyable. Actually I thought it was a tame in respect to Phoenix Kriek. Definately some overlap between the two, which is a good thing. These guys really nail fruit beers.

On draft at the Brewpub. Pours a dark hazy ruby red with some sediment. Great lacing. Aroma is tart raspberry. Flavor is sweet, fruity raspberry, and a mild tart finish.

Draught at the brewpub. Pours purplish red with lasting pink head. The aroma is intense raspberry and not a whole lot else. The flavor is fresh raspberry juice with a bit of a dryish malt finish. I donít care for this type of over-the-top fruit beer, but the fruit is reasonably well done in this one.

There isnít much in this concoction that even resembles beer. It tastes like a sickening sweet raspberry syrup. At $27 a growler, I was extremely disappointed.

Hey, this is actually a little tart. I didnít expect that. Has a snappy tartness and a sweet, sharp, dry raspberry fruit syrup flavor. Punchy and tart and prickly on the tongue. Resembles somewhat New Glarus Raspberry Tart, but less complex and less deep. Finishes pasty and mildly dry. Surprisingly good.

Draft @ Selinís Grove. Pours a deep, red raspberry color; light pink head that fades to a thin perimeter of bubbles. Solid, sweet red raspberries and red fruit syrup in the aroma; basic legitimate fruitiness. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: lots of dense, red raspberry and red fruit character; a slight viscosity, almost syrupy, and reminiscent of strawberry / raspberry jolly ranchers; a mild cranberry-like tartness and acidity; relaxed carbonation. Medium, raspberries and sugar in the finish; a very slight stickiness.

While I love selins grove brewing I was not a big fan of this one. It seemed to be a confused beer. it didnít know if it wanted to be an amber ale or a fruit beer. I think it would have been better with lighter malts to let the raspberry shine through, and thought that the fruit+carmel malt+ spicy yeast was a bit off for a combination even though I must admit that when writing that it doesnít sound bad, and Iím not usually one who thinks that beers need to be kept in strict categories. Just wasnít my thing

Growler thanks to Lauren & Greg. Aroma of raspberry fullness. Brown with reddish tinge. Little head. The first sip is ridiculously delicious - a sweet/tart raspberry cake. Tastes like ridiculously fresh fruit mixed in with a rich, full ale. A treat. Tart, malt finish hangs around in the mouth a while, making me savor more and more. Easy to drink, easy to enjoy. Thereís a subtle bitterness to the beer that makes the sour/tartness of the raspberries much more pleasing and is overall much more balanced than, say, Fort (DFH). I wish this could be bottled but Iíll enjoy every last drop of it from the growler.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2006 Had on tap and poured a deep red color with a fluffy head. The first thing noticable about this beer is the amount of raspberry flavor that is in the beer. The second thing is a sticky sweetness, really sweet. There is a small amount of tartness mixed in. This beer is way too sweet for me.
