Dark purple pour with thin white head. Aroma of fresh raspberry. Great flavor of raspberry, but not too sweet.

CT V. Poured a dark brown with some reddish hues to it. Aroma was of raspberries and chocolate. Tasted pretty thin on the palate and a little watery feeling.

Poured a blood red color with a pink head. The aroma is sweet, fruity and full of raspberries. The flavor is full of raspberry. Semi-sweet. Lively mouth-feel. Tasty if you like raspberry.

I really liked this one. Somewhat expensive but well worth it. A nice beer.

On tap at Phoenixville. Not knowing what to expect with this, it was very light tasting. Not like a raspberry lambic. It is deceivingly light in body, and can absolutely sneak up on you at 8%. A nice selection in the sample we chose. Took 2 more bottles home.

lovely pour from a corked 750ml. deep purple with a frothy head. great aroma of tart raspberries, hints of sweetness and sour notes. creamy when it hits your tounge followed by the tartness of the raspberry. a bit of a lingering berry flavor but it’s pleasant. thanks watson1977!

DocLock (7745) - 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.

boto (1828) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - SEP 9, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2006 Draught @ Sly Fox in Phoenixville: The beer pored a very dark ruby red color. Mine had a small bit of a pinkish head on it. The nose is a bit strong. It is heavily of tart raspberries, and yet it isn’t quite to the point of being overpowering. Nothing else comes through. The taste is raspberry, yet it is balanced and not too sweet. This was a very satisfying beer.

agl108 (780) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2005 On draft at Sly Fox Phoenixville. Pungent raspberry aroma, although not as pronounced as I was expecting. Pours a beautiful purple with a fluffy ruby head. A nice raspberry flavor, but the beer seemed too thin and watered down. IMO, there’s absolutely no way this beer is over 7% ABV.
