3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Richard’s tasting. Dark purple pour with a pink head. Sugar, raspberry soda, and popsicles. A touch of grass. Simple flavor. Just pretty much sweet raspberry soda/popsicle. A touch of grass, soda water, and a light tartness.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 c&c from BottleSelect.com. Pours darkly ruddy with an off-pink head. Aroma is very raspberry - more black than not. Med minus body. Flavor is rather tart raspberry. Again more towards black than red. It’s really dryish, and has a raspberry tartness on into the finish. Goes a bit thinnish, but the flavor isn’t affected.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tastes like black raspberries. A lot of the original sugars are gone, which gives this a deep fruit taste which doesn’t cling with too much sweetness.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This one poured a ruby red color with a small pinkish head. Aroam was of artificial raspberries and basically nothing else. Flavor was very similar, overly sweet and way too carbonated. Just bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle purchased @ Phoenixville, PA. Brewpub location. Color of liquid and head is purple. The aroma is heavy raspberry and sweet sugary berries. The flavor starts fairly sweet up front then turns quickly into a tart, acidic berry flavor. Body is more thin then I was wanting. A touch cloying and very one dimensional. A big letdown, really thought I was getting a bolder more complex beer with this one. Not bad at all just simple.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ruby coloured and hazy. Has a white head, mostly lasting. Both aroma and flavor has clear notes of raspberries and some fruity sweetness. Finish a bit astringent.

Thanks Chris! 750ML enjoyed at home for my GF’s birthday. Enjoyed at 60F in a wine glass.
A - Gorgeous blackberry appearance. Nice head that’s also purple.
S - Smells great! raspberries, blackberries and cherries.
T - Dangit. Taste is nothing like the smell. No sweetness. tastes like fresh picked..almost too fresh picked blackberries and blueberries. Bland finish.
M - Light body, high carbonation
O - This was going to be great and then it wasn’t. Sigh.
