750 ml cork and caged bottle shared by Scott. Poured an deep dark burgundy with a light pink head. Aroma was great with lots of black raspberry, freshly crushed and super juicy, along with some grains. This beer went all downhill after that. The body was super watery and over carbonated, felt like I was drinking a seltzer. The flavor was super watered down, felt like I was drinking a bad soda. This one is all aroma.

bottle... good looking unique color, super dark purple, like Sangria, purple head... smells really good, reminds me of NG Raspberry tart, a bit too sweet but fresh raspberries a hint of tart and sugar... grr, how did they make this taste so bad, its flat, the front is dead, basically water, a bit of black raspberry but more tart than sweet, you an tell this was a thin wheat terrible pick for a base beer... disappointing but not unexpected

GT2 (8507) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Tap at Varga Bar. The pour is a clear jewel ruby with no head. Nose is tootsie rolls/stale plasticy toffee. Taste is tootsie rolls with plastic, big medicinal overtones, sharp metallic, and small bile/vomit acid character. Very poor. Nothing here reminded me of raspberry or even beer for that matter.

lovely pour from a corked 750ml. deep purple with a frothy head. great aroma of tart raspberries, hints of sweetness and sour notes. creamy when it hits your tounge followed by the tartness of the raspberry. a bit of a lingering berry flavor but itís pleasant. thanks watson1977!

Bottle from a trade with watson1977. Pours clear maroon color with pinkish purple head. Aromas of sweet raspberries. Slightly tart raspberry flavor. I was expecting it to be sweeter and more syrupy. It was crisp and refreshing, reminded me of a flavored seltzer only much better. Light body with effervescent carbonation. Thanks Kerry.

ben4321 (4019) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Location: 750 ml bottle from Shop Rite - Hoboken, 8/26/11

Aroma: The nose is fairly sweet and slightly tart, thereís not much going on here besides the fruit
Appearance: Pours a cloudy reddish-brown color with a big fizzy head that dissipates really quickly
Flavor: The flavor starts fairly sweet up-front, and turns quickly into a tart, acidic mid-to-late flavor
Palate: A somewhat airy/thin feel, and with an overly fizzy carbonation that hurts drinkability significantly
Overall Impression: I didnít get the best impression off the bat here, since this one was a total gusher out of the bottle, and as I drank it my impression didnít improve all that much. I wouldnít recomend drinking this one unless you really enjoy carbonation and medoicre fruit flavor.

Solid Fruit beer. Strong raspberry taste and smell, harsh alcohol aftertaste to it as well though which wasnít great. Ok beer, nothing great
