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.

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.

2.9 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.

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.

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.

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.

Big initial raspberry sweetness. Maybe a bit of cereal type malt in the background. Pours dark amber with ok head retention. Tastes medium to heavy sweet, with a healthy dose of raspberry tart. Not very heavy in the mouth with pretty average carbonation. Nice summer beer.

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.
