0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle from Hop City in Atlanta. Smells like a raspberry lotion I used to have. Tastes like raspberry sparkling water. Awful. Without the raspberry, this would be the lightest of light beer. Southern Tier is usually so good.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A very pale yellow pour with almost no head. A slight raspberry scent. Therein lies the problem with this beer. Everything is slight. It was like drinking water with a sight hint of raspberry, a slight taste of hops, and slight carbonation. Very disappointing. Expected so much more from the makers of the excellent Chokolat.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
19/04/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Dorata chiara, impida e brillante, con buona schiuma biancastra. Aroma intensissimo, dolciastro, fruttato, di lamponi e pesca. In bocca è fruttata, dolce, appena acidula, stucchevole, frizzante e totalmente priva di corpo. Sembra un’acqua tonica alla frutta che a una birra. Tra le peggiori birre mai bevute. Alla Brasserie 4:20 la usavano per lo più per aromatizzare i cibi cucinati.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A hazed golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, strong raspberry juice covering traces of malt and hops. In mouth, a smooth sweet raspberry, light mineral notes, faint hops, watery bodied. A summer beer. Bottle from LCBO.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From my notes. Reddish pour. Fizzy, 2 fingers of head disappear fast. All I got from the aroma was sweet raspberry flavouring. Ditto the taste - Cloyingly sweet raspberry flavour. lively carbonation, lighter body, but not a joy to drink by any stretch. My wife loves fruit beer and did not care for this.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg at Brewdog Camden. Pale blond, very clear with small thin white head. Aroma lots of raspberry, bit gassy smell like a fizzy water. Taste bit spritzy, but very thin. Not really high carbonation but felt very gassy. Further down the glass it gets a bit better, aroma tizer like and a bit of wheat towards the end. Gets better, but still not that great.

Part of Christmas mix six. Pours clear golden, with nice nose of raspberry. Tastes of artificial raspberry syrup and some wheat. It’s crisp but disappointing overall.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is a decent but somewhat bland APA-ish wheat beer w/ a hint of (seemingly) artificial raspberry flavor. It’s not as bad as it sounds but also not really good either. It’s a perfectly clear golden color w/ a very small head of white bubbles. The raspberry is most apparent in the nose along w/ some grassy herbal overtones. It comes out more in the flavor but there is only the slightest hint of tartness to compliment it. Flavor is very dry which keeps it drinkable. It works reasonably well overall, mostly because the raspberry is not completely overbearing. As far as this sort of thing goes, this is definitely above average.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
I’m generally not a fan of fruit beers. I’ve come across a few that I enjoyed, but not many. I saw this one & was reluctant to put in my mix 6, but I hadn’t had a bad beer from this brewer yet. Until now... I was quite disappointed with this one. It poured yellow with pretty much no head. The aroma was of wheat & generic candy berry. The flavor was overpowered with chemical artificial berry flavor that ruined the whole thing. palate was average. Not one I’ll be trying again.
