Buffy raspberry hue and sudsy dirty pink-beige head.
Aroma of raspberries, sour cherries, and caramel-chocolate.
Moderately sweet with nice dry finishing acidity.
Some palatable texture early on, but dries and puckers in the finish.
This is developing very nicely.

pours deep red with a pretty good head. Good aroma - nicely fruity. After this the flavor lacks any real presence. Somewhat of a "fake" flavor overall. A bit of a miss for Sly Fox

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 21, 2007
750 ml bottle. Deep red with a large pink head. Aroma of tart raspberries. Flavor is also dominated by raspberries, accompanied by a slight yeasty mustiness. Medium body, lively carbonation. Dry finish with a touch of bitterness. Don’t know if I would seek this out again (especially at the price), but I had no problem finishing this off by myself.

Bottle from Mr. Bendo to share with OhioDad at C-bus tasting 5... Definite raspberry aroma comes from a dark red body. Raspberry and malty flavor--but the raspberry dominates.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Bottle shared at the Columbus Tasting V: Dark red pour with a pinkish head. Aroma of raspberries, and some sweet malts. Flavor, sweet and malty up front but it’s really just all raspberries. A little tart, not a whole lot going on.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Sampled at Columbus tasting. Poured a very pretty purple red color! Taste of rasberries (Of course!) not as sweet as you would think. Had a bit of a tang to it. Very good. I enjoyed this.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2007
750ml bottle sampled at Columbus Tasting V - Pours Ruby Red with Purple Accents. Raspberry aroma and some caramel malts. Flavor is fairly tart with raspberry and slight caramel behind it but pretty one dimensional. Palate seemed quite dry and somewhat acidic.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Deep purply color - thin head. Rich and lovely aroma of raspberries. Flavor is very tangy and sweet, raspberries are very prevalent and kind of drown out much else. Still, a lively and decent fruit beer.
