Corked bottle. Strong raspberry aroma. Initial roasted malt challenged by raspberries. fairly dry. Hint of vanilla. Questionable balance. Hint of alcohol. Still a nice beer.

hopdog (8821) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2005
On tap at the Royersford locatoin. Poured a dark and hazy purple color with the same colored head. Aromas of, drum roll please, raspberries. The raspberry taste was less intense in the flavor and some wheat came out in the tastes as well. Lighter tart finish. Alcohol content hidden. I enjoyed this one.

Thanks Dr.Jay, surprisingly good. Think raspberry black tea, not raspberry jelly. Dark raspberry colour with pink head, bit of lace. Aroma, well raspberry. There is bitterness behind the taste, medium mouthfeel.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2006
Deep red-purple colour with a bright red head. Great blackberry aroma, sweet fruity with a touch of peppery character in the back. Flavour is also quite fruity with peppery/wheaty notes. Lacks a lot of the acidity that I feel a beer like this needs to brighten up the flavour. Not bad, but could be better.

GT2 (8283) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Tap at Varga Bar. The pour is a clear jewel ruby with no head. Nose is tootsie rolls/stale plasticy toffee. Taste is tootsie rolls with plastic, big medicinal overtones, sharp metallic, and small bile/vomit acid character. Very poor. Nothing here reminded me of raspberry or even beer for that matter.

Looks like an Americanized lambic. Black raspberry currant mouth feel. Little to no aftertaste. Very smooth. Rated 4/13/10

3fourths (7886) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Dark purple and pink colored body. Nose is a mixture of sweet and musty/drier berries, wood, starches, etc - it smells quite nice. Flavorwise, though, it’s a different story. Candy sweet, plasticy, medicinal even, with a twang that’s hard to overcome. Body is thinner than it needs to be, and the finish is a bit sour, doesn’t really taste right. Smells good, that’s the one positive thing about this beer.

BMan1113VR (7834) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Bottle thanks to nellie via bu11zeye. Pours with a hazy amber body with an off-white head that slowly fades. Aroma is raspberry cordial. [period]. Boozy fruit notes, pretty sweet. Raspberry syrup. Very fizzy and very thin right off the bat. Has the mouthfeel of a soda. Flavors are raspberries, medium to sweet, light tartness. Finishes a bit yeasty. Nothing offensive here. Just raspberry syrup and soda water. Alcohol is well hidden though.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2006 Nice raspberry aroma. Tastes like raspberry, with some citrus, yeast, and hops at the finish. Nice style, but beware that this one is not very tart like the New Glarus offerings. Rather, it has a more subtle taste, more like fresh raspberries.
