3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at the Impromptu Butter’s 5th cellar clearance. Near clear gold pour with fair white head. Nose is massive sweet raspberry much like a lindeman’s framboise. Flavor has a tartness and fake raspberry flavor. Raspberries and cream. A little carbonic bite, but not overpowering. Enjoyable example of a fruit beer.

Pours an off-white head with a dark golden body that is full of particulates, both white and dark (rasp pieces). Smells like raspberry with a hint of bread. Tastes like raspberry yogurt. Smooth, mellow, and a good fading raspberry finish.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy gold with a very abundant soapy white head. Smells of sweet rasberry and malt. Tastes of rasberries and smooth malt. Very slight grainyness. Sweet and slightly dry finish. One of the better berry beers I’ve tried yet. Pretty nice.

12oz. bottle Pours hazy gold with a large thin white head. Aroma of fresh raspberries, carbonated mouthfeel like a raspberry soda minus the sufficent carbonation. Taste does not follow the aroma raspberry dissapears and you end up with an ale with a touch of raspberry]. Decent but not for me.

Bottle. Pretty much your typical raspberry/blackberry/blueberry fruit beer. Tastes like a pale lager with with some fruit juice added. Pretty darn not interesting. Next...

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.
