Ugh 2nd nasty one in a night. Poured a cloudy redish color with okay head. Aroma was only raspberries. Flavor was the same with some nasty wheat flavor very very watered down. undrinkable, second pour in a night unheard of.

2.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
750 ml. Pours a purple reddish color with a huge purple head. Aroma is raspberries with nothing else detectable. Light sourness with a huge flavor of you guessed it rasberries. This stuff kinda reminded me of the red sparkling grape juice that comes in a bottle as the carbonation was way too much. Mouthfeel was very thin. Interesting beer, but I can say I didn’t enjoy it too much. Too sweet, too fruity, too carbonated, too thin, too bad this is not what I look for in good beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle. Poured a dark and hazy purple color with fizzy, light purple head. Strong aroma of raspberries. While raspberries were also the dominant flavor, it was not overpowering. No sourness that some others have reported. My wife and I shared this bottle along with some goat cheese and it was an excellent pairing. Light bodied, not at all syrupy or cloying. This bottle was quite enjoyable and I’ll be back for another!

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle shared by Blake. Purple body under a girly pink head. Smells like a nice raspberry beer - Lindeman’s style. The flavor falls flat on its face - thin, light toasty malt underneath metallic, bitter, tart raspberry. Needs more sweetness!

Thanks Chuck. The beer pours to an opaque dark purple body with a fizzy muted pink head. The aroma is wheaty black raspberries. The flavor is kinda like raspberry seeds and whole wheat blended in a slurry. Kinda like raspberries that have been sitting around too long after harvest. The palate is thin, lightly dry, and has a artificial syrupy feel.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
dark deep reddish colored pour w/ a tall fluffy soapy pink head w/ no real head. Pretty nasty aroma smells like really bad raspberries and more ick. Palate is pretty thin some coating. Flavor is pretty bland some raspberries some grainy notes.. a bit tart, some lightly dry finishes.. Not very good at all.

Bottle. I had high hopes for this one, but they were quickly dashed. Pours a deep burgundy/red color with a moderately sized head. Aroma is fruity and nice. Flavor is very off. I was expecting much more raspberry presence, but it is lacking. There is a fake sourness present that really seems to disrupt things. Like articifical sweetener.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance is nice... Dark red body with fluffy white head with red tints. Aroma is nice... smells like fresh raspberries. Flavor is average at best... raspberry isn’t as prominant as in the aroma as it’s covered up by a strange sour and bad grain taste. Palatte is light and highly carbonated. Looking through the ratings I wonder if the recipe changed cause they seem to be on a strong downward trend.

Bottle that cost too much. Do you liek diet blackraspberry soda? if you do then this one is for you. Decent aroma but not strong blackberry smell or taste. Too bland and soada feel. Feels like it’s missing something(alot of somethings) to make it right. Disappointing comming from this brewer.
