Tap at SPH. Pink tinted golden beer with a thin white head. Sweet raspberry aroma over a backnote of bready malts and some peppery character as well. Flavour is quite good, unlike many fruit beers, itís not cloyingly sweet rather letting the acidity of the fruit shine through. Bright raspberry flavour comes through. Well-balanced with loads of fruity flavour on display over a lightly bready base.

Rastacouere (6125) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2005
Draft at the Publick House. Creamy white head tops the clear ruby-pink hue. Rather simple and straightforward fruit beer where the flavours revolve around the grainy malts and jammy, slightly soapy remotely intense, yet definitely accessible raspberry essence. Unspiced and so simple that you get bored a bit upon tasting, wishing for more wildness, more funk, more originality, but this is, as with all SH beers, clean, not too sweet, not too dry, not too tart (not much at all unfortunately for the latter). Small-bubbled carbonation punctuates the thin watery body. 8% wow, it felt like 5.

Draft at blind tiger with Linh. Pours a bright, hazy yellow with light white lacing. Aroma is wheat and citrus. Mouthfeel is creamy with mostly wheat notes very light raspberries.

(draught at the brewery) This really should be listed as a fruit beer - very similar to some sub-par, light raspberries ales Iív had (ie. Great Divide), but there is nothing sub-par about this beer - beautiful red/purple hue, sparkling body wih foamy white head - huge raspberry aroma - crisp, light and refreshing - seemingly simple at first, but one must be careful not to mistake the more subtle berry and grain flavors for simplicity - great summer ale.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2005
Strong, tart, fresh raspberries in the aroma with strong underlying wheat. Clear burgundy red body with a decent cover of fine bubbled white head that recedes to ring with some spotty lacing. Wheat flavour is strong with plenty of pleasantly tart fruitiness. Light body with lively carbonation. Sampled on tap at the brewpub with Olivier_MTL and Rastacouere.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 4, 2007
Poured a hazy pinkish purple corle with a small owh. Aroma is sweet and candish. Raspberries domniate with just enough sweetness. Sweet and fruity with Rsperries still dominating. Not over the top in my aspect. a really nice fruit beer. If 8% this is a true panty dropper.

beerbill (3367) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAR 9, 2007
On tap from Shoreline Bev. This beer poured a color similar to a deep roseí wine with a moderate fizzy pink head that quickly receded to a thin ring. Very nice aroma of raspberries. The flavor is also mostly raspberries, but they do not overpower as in some fruit beers. Light on the palate and very refreshing, this beer is simple, as it should be. Another job well done by Phil Markowski.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2010
Draft, brewed at the Publick House (not a contract facility) and served by Phil Markowski himself at the Southampton beer dinner at The Ravenous Pig in March 2010. Pours a clear, deep, reddish-violet color that resembles the tint of a cranberry-grape juice blend. It is served with virtually no head or lacing, and just a very faint surface haze is conjured up by a vigorous swirl of the glass. The aroma is of sweet mixed dark berries and a clean, caramelized wheat grain background. Thereís a hint of tannic, blackberry-skin tartness, though it serves as a secondary component. Flavors follow suit, showing a dark berry driven tartness that seems to be the result of aggressive attenuation. Wheat and general cereal grains are distinct and fresh in the malt base. Alcohol is a bit more forthright than it should be, at least for my tastes. Medium-light bodied, and seemingly watered down a bit, the moderate carbonation proves refreshing, and the finish is a little on the papery side. Decent brew. Not really my thing, but I can appreciate it for what it is.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAR 15, 2007
12oz tap sample from Shoreline Beverage. Sampled the day I purchased it. Bright rusty red pour with a brief and thin bubbly white head; vanishes quickly. Lively bright raspberry aroma. Itís somewhat mild, but very natural, without any assertive artificiality, which some fruit beers have. Extremely mild, light bodied and drinkable. Very subtle raspberry tartness, and a light acicity, which gives it the great drinkability. Some wheat malt is evident in the extremely clean and abrupt finish. Overall itís simple, straight foward and very light, but crisp and well made.

tgncc (2767) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2009
On tap at Blind Tiger, NYC. The aroma is toasted malts, cereal grains, raspberries. The appearance is brown, with a considerable red/purple tinge. The flavor is strong raspberry, wheat. The finisgh has almost no bitterness, but is a coating of raspberry juice. Thin medium mouthfeel. Overall, this is a fruity beer, but is not too sweet.
