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.

pours deep red with a pretty good head. Good aroma - nicely fruity. After this the flavor lacks any real presence. Somewhat of a "fake" flavor overall. A bit of a miss for Sly Fox

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2007 This is no light-hearted fruit beer. The black rasberry is over-the-top in your face and dominates this beer from aroma to tail end. Tart with a sharp short hop bite at the end of the swallow. The middle is sweet and sour at the same time. It pours an opaque purple with a small head and little carbonation fanfare. Not my cup of...um...juice.

Reddish-purple color with a light pink head. Aroma is solid raspberries. Flavor is raspberry with some cheap bready soda. Not really good - maybe Mr. Carey can make a trip from Wisconsin to PA to show the IPA varietal King how to make some Framboise-ish beer.

Man, this beer was all over the place. I gave it high marks for the appearance because man, it just looked stunning in my glass. Absolutely beautiful I thought. A rich, purpleish/red color, with a nice light pink foamy head, the kind that youíd get from pouring a 7-Up. Aroma is raspberries. Yep, just raspberries. Mouthfeel had that mineral water/club soda kind of feel to it. Flavors had that extract, fake raspberry taste to it. Almost saccharine like. Kinda like a watered down framboise mixed with a wheat beer. Not the best. But looks damned good in my glass.

This fruit beer pours a raspberry red color form a 750 ml bottle. Medium sized pinkish foamy head. Aroma is raspberries and sweet. A medium to light bodied fruit beer. The malts are fruity and wheaty. The hops are earthy. This beer is very sweet and artificial tasting. There is a pronounced seltzer and soapy taste. The raspberry flavors are very sweet and seem a little artificial tasting, more like they used raspberry syrup than real fruit. Did not really enjoy this one. Mouthfeel is a full. Finish is crisp. Aftertaste is sweet.

What a weird beer. The aroma was incredible fruity aroma, but then it tasted like junk. Got my hopes up so high for a random selection, then killed those hopes like a NYC school

750ml from Caponeís, Norristown. Dark pour, and a vast gushing carbonation immediately following a violent cork pop. Big nose is certainly raspberry, but itís jammy and artificial without the fresh berry tartness I was hoping for. The body was weirdly static despite the obvious carb. And despite the sweetness of the nose, the taste was bone dry like stale cola, and at times even weirdly ashy. Drain pour.

Pours a dark magony brown to purple beer with a quickly dissipating pink head. Aroma is intensely fruity and sirupy. Taste is extremely malty and fruity, lightly dry and bitter; in reality, though, this isnít so much beer as cassis with malts added.
