3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home, Cloudy yellow-brown appearance with a light orangish cream colored head. Potent ripe, tart, fruity raspberry, carbonated aroma. The raspberry flavor is milder than you would be led to believe with the rich, fruity nose. Mild raspberry, lightly tart flavor. Pretty easy drinking but Iím a little disappointed after eager anticipation following the aroma.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle via trade with Mike, thanks again for the extra. Aroma is overpowering raspberry to the point of being fake. Not that chemical aroma but just very overpowering where you would never know you were drinking a beer. Pours a golden yellow with HUGE head. This thing took 2 minutes to pour two, 6oz pours. The taste is raspberries up front but then goes to some acid and some mild, mild malt finish. The mouth feel is water and bubbles. Very much lacking in several categories, overall it isnít something I would turn away with a second tasting but really didnít bring much to the table other than the aroma.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Poured a clear light amber with a small white fizzy head that dissipated rapidly and had very little lacing. The aroma was to say the least POWERFUL with a raspberry scent which covered up just about everything else except for a faint hint of a sweet yeast. It tasted lightly sweet with a very light hint of raspberry from the onset to the finish, with it being a little acidic and having a hint of yeast at the end. The flavor faded quickly leaving almost nothing left on the tastebuds. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a very lively carbonation. Overall a very light tasting brew with a lot less flavor than the aroma would have you believe.

Beauty: This beer is actually quite good. It has a little bit of a strong raspberry taste to it but it is overall good. It has a short finish and you can smell the raspberry, which is a great masker for other smells. Overall this is a great beer for someone that doesnít quite like the taste of beer but wants one anyways. Beast: not available for tasting

Very strong fruity raspberry aroma. Light and watery with bare hints of fruit in the flavor. Disappointing.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
THOUGHTS: Smelled very nice, but the flavor seemed a little off. It was like a very watered down raspberry. Just slightly better than those flavored Michelob Ultras. The bottle may have been a little old because the yeast at the bottom was a little dark.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured an ever so slightly hazy, but completely translucent and very light yellow with a large, slightly off-white head that mostly diminished, but left excellent lacing. It was bottle conditioned.The aroma was really just raspberry with both sweet and tart ones shining through. The initial flavor was slight to moderately acidic, lightly sweet and slightly sour; while the finish was lightly sour, slightly acidic and lightly sweet with a short duration. There was sugar water, slightly watered down raspberries and a little yeast at the end. The light body was watery, but slightly sticky on the lips with fairly soft and then a little tingly carbonation and a lightly astringent finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. Hazy amber with a nice lasting head and soapy lacing all over the glass. Nose is raspberry. Flavor is raspberry, light tart apple and a touch of apple core and woody pith on the finish. Light body is tingly and fizzy. Refreshing, but something has an artificial flavor and leaves a bad aftertaste.

Draft. Golden pour with white head. Aroma of sweet raspberries hit you before you even try to get a sniff. Very sweet, fruit and light malt notes.
