12 oz. bottle. Pours amber with very thin head that leaves quickly. Very sweet floral raspberry aroma. Sweet tasting with a little honey and lots of raspberry. One of my wifeís favorites. Too sweet for me.

(Brewed and bottled by Mendocino Brewing NY) Raspberry nose and flavor. The taste is very much like raspberry soda. The unbeer beer. Raspberry flavor tastes too fake.

Hard to be positive about this one. All I can say is why did I even try it as I knew what it would be like. A really light sweet slight raspberry beer. Shudder.

Very light artificial raspberry aroma and flavor. Light gold color. A hot weather beer that is short on flavor.

1.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pleasant smell of a raspberry soda. Great reddish ale color, with no head and no lacing. Down hill from there. Taste of chemicals and dirt, with (at least!) no lingering finish at all. No malt. I hated the thin, dry mouth feel. Spitter, and drain pour. Two sips were enough.

Aroma is weak at best.
Pours red with no head, constant bottom carbonation.
Flavor is of fruit and weak beer.
If your drunk and want to try something different, have at it!

Raspeberry aroma, which smells more like juice than beer. Rex says it tastes like koolaid, I agree.

Note from the Bozeman hronicle dated March 2003: Spanish Peaks closes, leaving Black Dog drinkers in lurch.

Smells like mustard! Wasnít expecting it to taste like mustard though. Little to no head and limited carbonation. BAD!

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Man did this suck. Aroma was very light, of raspberry of course, almost undetectable at the freezing cold temperature it was served to me. After it warmed it was still light. Poured with a tiny head, dissipated fast. Amber color. Tasted of nothing when cold, and then again nothing when allowed to warm. Maybe a raspberry and a drop of honey were added to the vat when it was brewed, then again maybe not. Tasted like bitter water with a slight raspberry aroma. It was a struggle to finish.
