Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. Aroma is raspberries, light malt. Flavor is tart raspberries, light malts. Palate is on the lighter side, medium carbnation, finished sweet. A decent fruit beer.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy gold color with a one finger head. Strong nose of fresh raspberries, sweet. Taste a surprise, the raspberry is understated held up to the smell, heavier toward the finish. Bitter more than sweet, like a raspberry tart, undertones of wheat. Fizzy, carbonated mouthful. Would be good to compliment chocolates.

patrick767 (3524) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 30, 2008
bottle - Pours light amber with a substantial aroma of raspberries. The flavor is a slightly tart raspberries and sweet malt. It’s light bodied, refreshing, and quaffable, but doesn’t stand out from the many other fruit beers on the market now.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JUN 30, 2008
Smells like a basket of fresh raspberries. Pours a decent amber color with not much head. Tasted a little bit like raspberry sorbet or something. Fairly fruity, not to sweet. Where this beer is failing is in the fact that I drank it about an hour ago and have been having foul raspberry flavored burps since I had it.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2008
Bottle shared at Cbus tasting 11. Cloudy golden pour. Aroma of tart raspberries. Tast was the same. Sweet and tart. A bit of a sour finish. Pretty decent fruit beer.

Pours deep golden into the glass, with a sudsy head that leaves a tiny ring and spotty lace. The nose is HUGE of distinctive raspberries, albeit sweetened puree. The flavor is truly reminiscent of a lambic, sweet raspberry with tart effervescence introduced toward the mid- and back-palate. There are some wheat notes mingling around here underneath. The finish contains an ever-so-tiny bittered grain... almost processed (plastic notes), which is the biggest detraction to the overall brew. Although not very complex, I actually do enjoy this offering, going down nicely on a hot summer night. The mouthfeel is much like a raspberry soda, light with lively carbonation and residual sugars that linger after the pull has concluded. Raspberry all around, it remains true to form; although, I still say that with the light ABV (3.9%) and strong fruit effervescence, this reminds me much more of a lambic than a traditional fruit beer. Not bad.... but very soda-esque in timbre.

MrBunn (2438) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Bottle. Pour is a kind of light and dingy amber... maybe a little red to it... maybe my eyes playing tricks. Head issmallish. Aromas are all raspberry, overwhelming raspberry... lots of raspberry. Flavor is light, sweet and full of raspberry... Not bad, but with the sweetness it is kind of sticky.

Bottle purchased today. So its not retired. Pours golden with a white head. Has a nice sweet raspberry aroma to it. Mouthfeel is light with a lot of carbonation. Tastes like a sweet raspberry bubbly. Has a nice tart finsih at the end. Overall just a decent brew and goes down great on a hot day.

4/10/08: Bottle.
Nose of wheat, red raspberries and a touch of grass. Extra light orange body. Light raspberry flavor which is not overly sweet or syrupy. Finish is somewhat tart. Refreshing.
