2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
When I opened the bottle I though it was going to be great, you smell the raspberries a few feet away. As I watched this beer pour, its pale body and thick brigth white had made me wonder. Then I tasted it. I was very dissappointed. It did have a raspberry flavor and thats about it. No character, no body. Started great - ended poorly.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Cool looking label with the red spotted dalmation. Opened to a louder pop - I almost expected it to gusy. Proceeded to pour almost all head. Settled into a medium and slightly hazy yellow color. Aromas of mainly raspberries, raspberry syrup, and just all around sweet berries. A little bit on the artificial side. Tastes of wheat with raspberries. The raspberries in the tastes a lot weaker than the aromas. Blah.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clearish pale golden yellow with no head to speak of. The nose is full of raspberries lightly sweet without a lot of complexity to it. Flatter body without much substance, but not quite completely watery. Again, full of raspberry. Sweet light malt with a hint of wheat I think. Very light and easy drinking. Very fruity with tons of lingering raspberry, not much tartness, mostly the sweetness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with hopscotch. Pours a hazy gold with a moderate-large white head that quickly dissipated and left no foam on the glass. Pleasant and bright aroma of raspberries along with a bit of white sugar. The fragrance is both sweet and tart, but is not candy-like. The flavor is mild malt with raspberries. Spritzy mouthfeel. This is a very nice refreshing ale.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Carbonated golden ale that reminds me of a wine cooler. Pretty light with a nice rasberry flavor. Only 3.9% ABV which was a bit disappointing. All in all a decent fruit beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This one is ranked a little low, I think. I’n not a big fan of fruit beers, but this one was pretty good. Nice berry aroma, raspberry flavor. A little tart and dry on the finish, kind of dries out the mouth. Not a whole lot going on, but what is going on is good.
