Wow, a great dark red color, almost looks like a wine. Great smell, fruity smell of raspberries...duh! Alcohol is masked well, taste of an explosion of fruit. A really good fruit beer.

Pours a dark magony brown to purple beer with a quickly dissipating pink head. Aroma is intensely fruity and sirupy. Taste is extremely malty and fruity, lightly dry and bitter; in reality, though, this isn’t so much beer as cassis with malts added.

On tap at Phoenixville. Not knowing what to expect with this, it was very light tasting. Not like a raspberry lambic. It is deceivingly light in body, and can absolutely sneak up on you at 8%. A nice selection in the sample we chose. Took 2 more bottles home.

750mL Bottle: Ruddy purple appearance w/ a light pink head that dissipates quickly. Muddled berry aroma w/ a slight hint of yeast. Slight berry flavor up front, a little sour too. Creamy mouthfeel. I was expecting more out of this beer, but who knows how old this bottle is. So that could be a factor.

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 isn’t as prominant as in the aroma as it’s 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.

Popped the top and a slowly gushing head of bubbles, poured quickly into a glass to catch the beer and keep it off my counter top. Nice dark rose colot with gee that really looks like a raspberry beer quality. Really fantastic nose, the raspberries shine through. Starts out quite tart in the taste. Overly dry that your mouth adjusts to during the drinking. Good interesting beer that is cool to try to reach both the girls and the boys beer drinkers or not.

750 courtesy of Doclock. Thanks! Pours red with a very bubbly head. Smell is exactly what the name is, rasberries. Sweet, but WAY to highly carbonated, just kind of tingles the mouth. But it does taste like rasberries.
