3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The beer pours a completely opaque purple-red color with a fizzy pinkish head that is poorly retained.
S: Pure raspberry on the nose. Really, not much else to talk about. The nose is dominated by the sweet fruitiness and maybe thereís a bit of raspberry soda. Only a mild sourness.
T: As with the nose, a mild sourness and lemon character that is almost overwhelmed completely by the intense raspberry flavor. There is a bit of grass to it, but itís really a really simple flavor profile. As it warms up, thereís a slight acetic note.
M: The body is medium with a medium carbonation.
O: This wasnít bad, it just didnít have much going on with it. If you really like raspberries, it would be great. I was hoping for more sourness.

On tap at Woodshop #6 (and on my kegerator). Pours with a hazy red to pink hued body and a small head. Aromas are tart, sharp raspberry. Very real fruit. Very fresh and inviting smelling. Not much aroma beyond the fruit. Flavors are tart, very fresh, with a medium sour. All raspberries and absolutely delicious. Medium bubbles, dry. Very thirst quenching.
As purely a complex sour, I would not rate this nearly as high, but as a beer I want to drink, I thought it was awesome. Medium acidity, but real fruit and absolutely thirst quenching. In the heat this was more enjoyable than even Hottenroth, and that says a lot!

Grolwer. brilliant appearance, ungodly raspberry aroma. Flavor is not as great, nice tartness, raspberry covered by malt and funk but still vibrant.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample at Bruery Provisions on 2/27/2012. This fruit beer pours a bright raspberry color from the tap. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, raspberry, slightly tart and sweet. A medium bodied fruit beer. The malts are fruity and sweet. Lots of tart raspberry flavors. Fruity and sweet, touch of word and a nice mellow tartness throughout. Brings out the flavor of the fruit while still having a nice wood and tart character. Very little if any carbonation, but it does not seem to need any. Very easy drinking. Very nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is tart with some residual sweetness and fruit flavor.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ginormous thanks to drabmuh for bringing out this growler. Served in a Bruery tulip. Thanks to Lunch for the assist on the glassware, as all my Bruery tulips have been packed.
Pours a bright reddish-pink color with a good slightly-pink head. A touch of lacing. The nose has plenty of raspberry with a good bit of must and earth. Really nice. Loads of raspberry and a touch of acidity. The flavor is a bit sweeter with lots of raspberry. Almost Koolaid-ish. Thatís an exaggeration, but it is a sweeter and heavy on the fruit without as much earth and acidity as the nose. Good light body with a nice light acidity to the finish. Really nice beer.
