3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a ruby body with a thin pink head. Fresh raspberries, some light grain, hints of berries and light apple tones. Sweet with sugar notes, aroma is better than the flavor, comes across more thin and sweet with a light dry drying finish, mildly tart. Decent ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark Pinkish-tinted pour. Smells good, sweet/sour raspberry aroma, Smells of hops as well. Little/no head. Sour fruit taste, carbonated finish, watery thinner than preferred mouthfeel. Not a very good framboise, but still acceptable.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thinner than I expected. Raspberry undertones, some sour notes. Liking it more and more with each sip.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. White head and lacing. Dark red-copper. Dark aroma of dried raspberries. Tastes like beer and raspberries. Lots of sourness sinks into the gums. More fruit taste than extract and syrup.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a watery red with no head & some minimal lacing. Aroma is leafy raspberry, very thin and green. Tastes equally watery and thin, bitter and tea-like, more like it was made from the leaves of a raspberry plant than the actual berries themselves. Thin with passable carb. Weak and uninteresting.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[1239-20080330] 341mL bottle. Strong tart raspberry cordial aroma with thick syrup wet wood notes. Slightly hazy, dark red wine body with a medium-lasting foamy light pink head. Bitter raspberry brambles flavour. Medium body. Interesting but brash and unrefined.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle in a nice external container (probably why I bought it). Pours a doughy hazy dull reddish with a violet hint and thin diminsihing head. Aroma is initially very juicy, and has a slight character you get from NG RT, but it fades and you realize it isnt as full or intesne- has some other apple hints and some grassiness to it as well. Flavor starts off nice with a nice tart raspberry and very fruit juicy, then fades, gets a bit papery, yeasty, doughy, with some light cracker malts in the backbone, and finishes very dull and a slight citric acid finish whcih doesnt seem like it belongs. Meh.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle shared by Dickinsonbeer. Murky reddish brown in color with a small head. Aroma has alot of sweet rasberry jam, with musty caramel malts, and some weird hops. Taste is sweet rasberry, sugar, lightly musty caramel malts- as well as some weird floral hop character. the fresh rasberry part of it was nice, otherwise, kind of strange.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A "pretty" beer but lacking a little in the substance category. Sweet raspberry flavor gets a little heady towards the bottom of the glass.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) Obtained via a trade with Goldorak. Pours a medium, frothy off-white head with a deep ruby-orange body. Head settles nicely along the sides of the glass. Nose of raspberry jam and seed. Flavour is nicely tart and raw, the raspberry flavour is sweet upfront than steadily changes to a tart seedy raspberry. Very enjoyable. This should be a winter beer.
