2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Unleash the flavor says the label to me with a pink spotted dog employed by thirsty. I remove the cap and all I can see is a methodical head growing in front of me. Hand me a glass and Iíll fill it with head Ė this one must be old as the yeast is all dead. Two glasses later the head still is flowing, Iíve got to be rating soon, this much Iím knowing. Thick splotchy lacing in a muddy amber soup, thereís some raspberry, malt and grains in this soup. Itís dry and malty and raspberry and gritty - and even my fruit beer loviní wife thinks itís shitty.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smells like a wine cooler, very soft on the palate with a very light body. The flavor is pretty much just of raspberry flavor, it is not an overwhelming flavor but it could use a little more. I found it to be a rather bland beer but if you like fruit beer it is decent.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from mix pack. pours a hazy gold with a small, frothy white head. raspberry aroma with a strong berry scent. flavor is relatively un-sweet with a nice amount of berry notes. slightly bitter and even salty sometimes. lighter hints of cereal occasionally. light body and clean. i like a little more body and malt sweetness in fruit beers but this is pretty good for a low abv drink.

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.

Apr 26, tap @ Thirsty Dog, Akron. Rasbrries, rasberries, rasberries. Pours clear golden, no sign of rasberriy colour, but what an aroma. You feel it from miles away. Flavor is ... rasberries of course with nice malty and hoppy touch. Palate and finish is rasberry as well with nice bitter hoppy touch. Excllent summer beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
