2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep ruby red with a small slightly off white head. Aroma is slightly subdued. Raspberry and slightly boozy in the nose. Taste is a dull raspberry with small hop and floral. Somewhat disappointing.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Originally rated July 2006. Bought at La Trappe ņ Fromage in Gatineau, Quebec. Comes in singles in a bottle-size box. Wow, very nice light pink head that is creamy, has very long retention and leaves great thick lacing all-around. Its colour is red with a touch of orange and even though clear, is hard to see through. Tiny carbonation is quite active, but tough to see. The nose is on the light side, with the raspberry and mild hops. The mouthfeel has a bit of stickiness, but is pretty crisp overall. The raspberries are present in the taste, but also too light, with some bitterness in the finish and grain malt. Not too sweet. The aftertaste is almost dry with not much lingering. A great refreshing summer brew from one of my favorite breweries. I just wish the aromas and flavours would be more dominant, and found it overpriced.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Gambrinus. Thanks to Milos and Adil for getting this in. Very pretty dark amber/red hued liquid is topped with a thick foam leaving heavy lace. Interesting nose of fresh raspberries, kool-aid, English style hopping and earthy malts.
A bit sweet, with nice acidity and mild bitterness to balance. Like easting a raspberry, but the beer has a metallic edge to it which I do not prefer. Very creamy finish, medium bodied, with nice lingering fruity aftertaste to it. This raspberry beer is for all seasons.

On tap at Volo. Pours a brownish ruby red with large pink head and some lacing. Aroma is fresh tart raspberries with a subtle earthiness. Taste is same although a little more watery than expected. Fine carbonation. Not my favourite McAuslan beer but decent.

Pours a ruby red/mohagony color. Aroma is fresh raspberries and bread. Taste is like fake candy raspberries or candles. Not my favorite fruit beer by a long shot but it wasnt awful.

nice beer, dark almost purple color, some decent foam but didnít last long, nose is not overpowered by the fruit but well balanced with some good malt and some woody smells, not too thin has good berry flavor but also can taste some mild hops and decent malt, good beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2012 Bottle 341 ml. Dark brown/red with a medium white with pink highlights head. Some lacing. Aroma of raspberries and slight (very slight) tartness. Taste of red fruits (where the fresh raspberries are gone?) and malt. Slight acidic aftertaste which I donít like. Refreshing but lack of complexity and nothing really stand out in this beer.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark red with a large, pink-tinged moussey head.
Lots of raspberry presents itself in the aroma, somewhat artificial smelling like raspberry lollies. Which is pretty nice really. Also some caramel and cookie dough-like malt.
Flavours are also quite sweet, raspberry at the forefront of course, with some metallic notes showing later. Not much else is noticeable, the high carbonation seems to hide any other aspects.
