UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a vibrant raspberry color with a huge pink head. The aroma was sweet and tangy berry with a light but noticeable "beer" malt undertone. The flavor was very tart and tangy with a crisp raspberry element and a light malty undertone. There is a tart berry finish. The alcohol is completely hidden. Fabulous.

Popped the top and a slowly gushing head of bubbles, poured quickly into a glass to catch the beer and keep it off my counter top. Nice dark rose colot with gee that really looks like a raspberry beer quality. Really fantastic nose, the raspberries shine through. Starts out quite tart in the taste. Overly dry that your mouth adjusts to during the drinking. Good interesting beer that is cool to try to reach both the girls and the boys beer drinkers or not.

Bottle: Very nice ruby red color with lots of pink/red head. Nose is filled with raspberry, as well as some malt. Taste is much more like fresh raspberries with some malt and wheat. Nice crisp finish even has a bit of hops present. Thanks to DocLock!

not at all bad, has a dark red colour to it, sweet sugary/fruity, slightly tart flavor. Kinda reminded me of one of those girly alt beverages.

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.

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.

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!

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!

Fizzy pink head. Reddish dark body. Raspberry malt aroma. Okay, but pretty basic. Flavor is not great. Watered down wheaty raspberry. Fizzy. Blah.
