2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Amber-bronze and slightly cloudy with a small off-white head. Aroma features raspberries, honey malts (or maybe just honey and malts) with a hint of citrus. Flavor is sweet, fruity, moderately hoppy with a tart finish. Medium body and fair carbonation. Kinda makes me wish for a hot summer day to go with it.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not bad -- if you like raspberry flavored beer, which I don't. It has a nice coppery amber color and fruity aroma but it has too much raspberry flavoring for me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice bronze colored body and a surprisingly large and thick tan head. The aroma has virtually No hints of Raspberry, mostly malt, caramel, a small note of honey. Wow, the flavor is in conjunction with the aroma but now I can taste the Raspberry, it’s subdued but present…… Malts, wheat, caramel, honey, raspberry in that order; Medium palate, very effervescent, actually much better than I was expecting it to be.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ruby red colour with brown highlights and a thin off-white head. Very potent raspberry aroma with a bit of sweetness detectable throughout! Malty taste with more sweetness than anything else. Aftertaste a bit bittered from the malt, but fairly sweetened from the other flavours! Overall, a decent beer...actually a bit better than I had expected! I had this on draught at MacGregor's in Rochester, New York on 28-October-2003.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden color, aroma and flavor has just a hint of raspberry that is not over bearing. Nice and smooth when going down. I like it.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Raspberry aroma with some honey. Orangish/light brown color with a white head that was gone in no time. Slight raspberry flavor, not nearly as much as in the aroma, some malt. Palate was dry, slightly acidic. Wasn't too bad.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2003 sweet and raspberry aroma, obviously. brown/toffee colored with a bit of gold and red mixed in. white loose bubbly
head that vanishes quickly. fizzy and watery medicine taste. ends a bit acidic and slightly bitter. it's fruity!
nothing remarkable and definitely drinkable (but to a short point).

2.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Like most fruit beers, it smeels and looks great. Reddish orange with bit rocky white head. Aroma of, oh lets see, maybe honey and raspberries? Not neaarly as much in the flavor. I give it credit for maintaining some beer flavors, but ultimately it just does not work. cloying sweet.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2003 Re-Rate: Darker in colour with a thin head that quickly dissipates. Lots of raspberry in the nose but when you take a drink POW its all gone. Lots of carbonation and weak flavor that is acidic with just a hint of raspberry
