3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
