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 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%?

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 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.

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. 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.
