An unforgettable wheat ale brewed with German Pils and Wheat malts and Tradition hops, with 1 lb. of red and black raspberries per gallon of beer. This beer features a tart finish and a sugary sorbet aroma.

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, 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.

jercraigs (9070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2007
Bottle. Deep pink/purple body, with a fluffy pink head. (3+) Big but diffuse raspberry aroma, tiny note of raspberry seeds. Flavour is dominated by lightly tart raspberry and not much else. Muted malt flavour is overshadowed by raspberry, which is pleasant enough but lacks the depth or complexity to take it from a amiable quaff to a more interesting sipper. 6+/3+/6/3/12-13

JoeMcPhee (9004) - 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.

deyholla (8904) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Bottle. Poured a cloudy dark amber red with a pinkish white head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of black raspberries with some tartness, quite one note. Flavor is similar one note with a black raspberries throughout and not much else coming through.

3fourths (8811) - 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.

DocLock (8797) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2004
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.

Fin (8704) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2011
Bottle at Jan & Charlottes tasting, Ulfborg, Denmark 09.04.11 cheers Jan & Charlotte Nice aroma here, reminding me a little of Boon Framboise, in fact the aroma is bloody gorgeous. Pours blood red with a very light pink head. The aroma suggests that this is going to be a belter and better than it actually ends up to be. Taste however is a little thin with no depth, lacking sourness, fruity bite and depth. sadly. A9 A4 T6 P3 Ov13 3.5

sebletitje (8124) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2012
Bottle sample @ 2nd RBBSG, August 11th 2012. Courtesy of Tinus. Couleur acajou, col beige fin. Arôme de mûres, fruité avec ce bouquet de fruits terreux faisant abstraction des fausses notes fruitées. Palais garde ce côté fruité framboise, mûres, note terreuse sur une pointe de douceur mais le tout reste plus centré sur une fine note aigre avec des houblons nobles laissant une brève amertume.

Hansen (8103) - Assentoft, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2012
Ruby coloured and hazy. Has a white head, mostly lasting. Both aroma and flavor has clear notes of raspberries and some fruity sweetness. Finish a bit astringent.
