3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A very distinct aroma of raspberries in a very dark, near opaque brew with a purplish head. Expecting a bit more I was somewhat disappointed in the very thin consistency which seem to put it out of balance with the visual look.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz draft served in a tulip at The Brass Rail. Pour was a deep plum with 2 inches of thick bubbly foam sitting on top. Nose was black raspberries and nothing else. Taste was very disappointing. It was like one of those spritzer sparkling waters with a light raspberry flavor. I donít even know how this can be called beer; it was closer to a wine cooler. On another note, I would swear this brew was non alcoholic! I have no idea where they hid the 8%?

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. I had high hopes for this one, but they were quickly dashed. Pours a deep burgundy/red color with a moderately sized head. Aroma is fruity and nice. Flavor is very off. I was expecting much more raspberry presence, but it is lacking. There is a fake sourness present that really seems to disrupt things. Like articifical sweetener.

On tap at the Selinsgrove Beer & Wine Festival.
This is very well done.
It is not a "novelty" beer, but rather a well made fruit beer that is worth trying.
Single finger surprisingly pink head on a reddish amber body. Aroma isnít too sweet with musty raspberry and blackberries. Flavor is well balanced.

750 ml bottle poured into a wheat beer glass produced a light pink head that dissipated quickly and a beutiful dark purple body. Black raspberries dominated the aroma and flavor. Not quite as sweet as I antidipated. Has a short, sweet finish. Very good bottle-conditioned fruit ale.

Smells great like raspberries, strong carbonation. The raspberry doesnít show very strong in the flavor, though. I wish it was.

Bottle. Red. Smells like raspberries. Unsweetened raspberry with a lot of carbonation. Not very well balanced.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Purple pour with a violet-tinged head. Aroma is predominantly raspberry with a little wheat background. Flavor is sweet with a tart finish. Itís a cloying sweetness that tastes more like raspberry syrup than actual fruit. Not awful, and certainly better than Abita Purple Haze, but I will probably skip this one next time.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft->flute: Pours a spare head that exhibits some lacing atop of a clear ruby-ish body with some carbonation. The aroma is of raspberry, light alcohol, hops, and grape must. The palate is medium, thin texture with the flavor being of average duration, moderately acidic and finishing like vinegar. Smells like lambic, tastes like raspberry wine vinegar.
