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.

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 isn’t 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 doesn’t 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.

Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2010
Purple pour with a violet-tinged head. Aroma is predominantly raspberry with a little wheat background. Flavor is sweet with a tart finish. It’s 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.

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.

GhostFace (321) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 14, 2011
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 it’s pleasant. thanks watson1977!

sugar aroma belies a nice understated raspberry flavor. Ruby and clear no head but nice carb. Good smooth and a good ratio of fruit to beer.
