3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours gold-tinged straw. Massive fluffy white head, almost billowed over the top of of my tulip, that collapses unto itself pretty fast considering the volume. Nose of pale malts and raspberries. Almost smells like a field. Mouthfeel is crisp, nicely carbonated, not very sweet or bitter, smooth with a malty slightly fruity finish. The raspberries are an accent and don’t dominate. It’s a nice beer, but I’ve had better raspberry ales. Trade from Bad Neighbor.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
12 oz. bottle pours an unnatural mauve color, like if you poured a touch of Chambord liquor in a beer. Pillowy, poufy head quickly dissipates, leaving abundant lacing and scant islands in the beer’s surface. Aroma is of a stale, overprocessed pop tart. Fake, fruity overtones with a starchy, processed grain base. The flavor reminds me of something about childhood. I think it’s either the flavor of the kiddie cosmetics I used to play with, or maybe the paint my dad used on the Barbie case he made for me. Front palate is overpowered by the smell, so I really didn’t get much taste. Mid palate is of Corona with lime and rancid Chambord with a finish of Sour Patch Kids. I feel that with fruit/veg beers, either they’re great or really bad - not very many that are just ’okay’. This is neither great nor ’okay.’ The remainder was a drain pour.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Cap comes off the bottle and the assault of raspberries ensues. Huge white head, light orange yellow color. This really doesn’t even taste like beer. More like raspberry soda. 7IBUs? why even bother?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a five+ finger white head that fades slowly to a thin layer, leaving some lace. Hazy light amber color. Raspberry nose. Strong carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor is sweet raspberry, hints of hops at finish. This is a summer beer. $2.00 for a 12oz bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Light gold with a thin white head. Jammy raspberry aroma, a little syrupy. The flavor has a nice raspberry fruity sweetness on an almost wheaty base. Pretty good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours out a moderately cloudy golden color with a big white head. Aroma of fresh raspberry, and a little sweet malt. Taste is raspberry with some grainy notes, don’t have much more to say. Wouldn’t be bad for a hot summer day, not sure why I chose to drink it buried under a foot of snow....

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours clear light orange amber with a thin white head. The aroma has a sweet raspberry fruitiness, but in a medicinal sort of way. The flavor is more sweet fruity raspberry with a slight tartness. This does not convince me there were fresh raspberries. I really wasn’t expecting much from this one so I can’t say I was disappointed.
