On tap at the Selinsgrove Beer & Wine Festival. This is very well done. It is not a "novelty" beer, but rather a well made fruit beer that is worth trying. Single finger surprisingly pink head on a reddish amber body. Aroma isnít too sweet with musty raspberry and blackberries. Flavor is well balanced.

Beautiful red plum in color with pinkish filmy head. The nose of fresh rasberry may be the best Iíve experienced. But then it falls apart, in the mouth the palate is harsh, metallic and not well integrated. The rasberries are muted underneath. Iíd like to try another bottle but I get the feeling this one is all up front.

12-JUL-2014, bottle in Kregme, from Kihoskh. Hazy real with almost no pink head. Aroma is extreme raspberry. Taste is raspberry and darker fruits. Medium body and carbonation. Thiníish finish. Not a lot of hops. Nice.

Bottle, caged and corked. Full disclosure, I may be positively tilted towards good raspberry beers ... But from the first whiff of this Iím sold. Solid, fresh berry fields, with a hint of yeast. This is full bodied, perhaps in the minds of some too full-bodied to carry the berry character ... but still a pleasant, rollicking beer IMHO ... an interesting Germanic, wheaty twist is underneath ... good stuff.

A decent fruited wheat beer. Iím a sucker for anything raspberry; beers especially. This one wasnít the best flavored beer out there, but was pretty good. Aroma was nice. Raspberry, with hints of cough syrup and jelly. Pour was a beautiful dark hazy red with a one finger near pink head. Taste was a let down considering the good aroma. Thin and watery with the great carbonation drowning out any flavor on initial sip. When the flavor comes out it is all raspberry, but very muted. Not much else going on. Jack up the raspberry flavor a little and this beer would be fantastic

Bottle at home. Pours dark red, lovely raspberry nose, tart, fruity, but a bit flat and thin, nose brings this up.

Bottle. Red. Smells like raspberries. Unsweetened raspberry with a lot of carbonation. Not very well balanced.

Bottle @ Richardís tasting. Dark purple pour with a pink head. Sugar, raspberry soda, and popsicles. A touch of grass. Simple flavor. Just pretty much sweet raspberry soda/popsicle. A touch of grass, soda water, and a light tartness.

750 c&c from BottleSelect.com. Pours darkly ruddy with an off-pink head. Aroma is very raspberry - more black than not. Med minus body. Flavor is rather tart raspberry. Again more towards black than red. Itís really dryish, and has a raspberry tartness on into the finish. Goes a bit thinnish, but the flavor isnít affected.

Tastes like black raspberries. A lot of the original sugars are gone, which gives this a deep fruit taste which doesnít cling with too much sweetness.
