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 isnít as prominant as in the aroma as itís 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 itís missing something(alot of somethings) to make it right. Disappointing comming from this brewer.

Reads well. Tastes like soda. I canít figure out why they canít keep it in stock. I think the brewmaster is on the right track. But this beer needs some fine tuning before it goes to market.

I got 3 of these in trades. Their brews can be hit or miss and this one is a miss. The fruit is overwhelmed but a funky sourness or something. I gave two bottles of this away.

Very dissappointed. This really offered little more to me than your typical x fruit American wheat does. Maybe the fruit was a little more dominant -- which is good, as it blocks out the horrible base -- but it still sat on an ugly, mealy, half sour unrefined grain bed that does nothing but get in the way. It was also not nearly as thick or syupry as I was hoping, a la Raspberry Tart -- which is what every sane brewer should be aiming for.

25.4 oz bottle. Clear, bubbly burgundy with a pretty purple-pink head. Raspberry candy. Sweet, yes, but not too much. Some granny smith and grapefruit pith. Needs a bit more carb, body and denser flavor. Pleasant.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2006 Bottle. If you like raspberries you should like this fruity brew. Pretty raspberry color with fresh raspberry aroma. The taste was fizzy and tart. I remember when they 1st started making this...they must have changed the receipe...oh well

EHHH... this beer sucks. Like drinking a raspberry wine cooler. Had a nice raspberry aroma, no head, purplish/red color, and not particularly sweet or tart. like a fizzy wheat beer or wine cooler. Dreadful

Red, pink, and a little bown, with a pink head. Aromas are raspberries and grapes. Flavors are tart raspberries and wheat. Thin body, lots of carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden.

Deep red-purple colour with a bright red head. Great blackberry aroma, sweet fruity with a touch of peppery character in the back. Flavour is also quite fruity with peppery/wheaty notes. Lacks a lot of the acidity that I feel a beer like this needs to brighten up the flavour. Not bad, but could be better.
