3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341ml bottle. Red hued brown, hazy, large white but rose tinged head. Subdued raspberries, not overly sweet, some malt and caramel. Start sweet, builds as the raspberry taste becomes more prominent. Decent body and partly buttery mouthfeel but there isn’t much going on. Have to say I like that its not too sweet, and that the raspberries don’t hit you over the head. Still its lacking complexity and depth.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
nice beer, dark almost purple color, some decent foam but didn’t 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.

Refrigerated bottle poured into a white wine glass. Pours mahogheny with crimson highlights and one inch head that dissapates quickly. Some thin lacing, light body, and a little light on the carbonation. Taste is sweet raspberry and a hint of hops in the finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Ruby red colour with a nice retaining head. Aroma is raspberry and some malts. Flavour is light raspberry with some caramel malts but just doesn’t seem to blend seemlessly. Finishes syrupy.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2009 Bottle:
Murky dark copper-red with a small off-white cap...aromas of ripe berry fruit over the distinctive aromas of a dark ale....earthy-toasty-malty
Tastes pretty much like it smells. Richer ale base than any fruit beer I have encountered... intersting fruity-eartyiness with the toasty malts...nice dry tart finish with a metallic twang in the after taste.
Decent enough but over hyped and not worth 4 bucks a bottle.

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.

341 ml bottle. Pours a hazy dark pink with a purple-pink head. Smells like raspberries. Tastes like sweet cereals, raspberries and malt. Light touch of bitterness in the finish, along with fruity acidity. Light-bodied. Nice summer beer.
