COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 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 isn’t so much beer as cassis with malts added.

Draft at the Grey Lodge In Philly. If you like raspberries this is the beer for you. They pretty much dominate the flavor. I couldn't taste anything else.

Thanks Chuck. The beer pours to an opaque dark purple body with a fizzy muted pink head. The aroma is wheaty black raspberries. The flavor is kinda like raspberry seeds and whole wheat blended in a slurry. Kinda like raspberries that have been sitting around too long after harvest. The palate is thin, lightly dry, and has a artificial syrupy feel.

Bottle shared by Blake. Purple body under a girly pink head. Smells like a nice raspberry beer - Lindeman’s style. The flavor falls flat on its face - thin, light toasty malt underneath metallic, bitter, tart raspberry. Needs more sweetness!

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.

Black raspberry beer. Not sweet, not complex, not anything much other than drinkable. A little watery and acrid.

Sample at a molen beer tasting. Thin white head. Clear ruby pour. Fruity aroma. Ok for a fruit beer.

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.

Fizzy pink head. Reddish dark body. Raspberry malt aroma. Okay, but pretty basic. Flavor is not great. Watered down wheaty raspberry. Fizzy. Blah.
