Copying from tasting notes. Bottle. Clean somewhat dark pour with a nice pinkish head. Aroma of raspberries and fruint. Taste is raspberry and some wheat. Quite yeasty as well. Good but not great.

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 don’t 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%?

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 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.

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.
