Huge (too large), white head. Rocky receding. Leaves generous lace. Neutral gold color with a slight chill haze. Sweet, like childrenís aspirin. I smell more strawberry than raspberry. More like candy than the fruit itself. Relatively dry compared to other fruit beers. The "fruit" taste seems fake to me. The body is fuller than I expected. Little aftertaste. A light beer. Overall, the beer is drinkable...barely.

(bottle - 12 oz) Pours a nice gold color with a frothy white head. Aroma is immediate raspberry. Thatís about it. Flavor is dry grass mixing with some light malts and the tart raspberry flavor. Finishes lightly sour with a dry and grassy taste.

Appearance: Pours a brilliant, deep yellow body with a medium-sized, white head. Smell: Thin, underlying vein of light pale malts, but mostly the nose is made up of the fruity, strongly-scented raspberry additive. Taste: Light setup of maltiness with a sweet (but not too sweet) barley taste. Essentially no hop flavor or even bitterness. And, let us not forget the raspberry flavoring which carries you along until the drying, lightly crisp finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Acceptable! One of those beers that is, as they say, one for the ladies. A simple, basic beer designed to deliver the raspberry flavoring with a minimal amount of alcohol. Reminded me of the local fruity brew, Sweetwater Blue, except with a raspberry flavoring instead of blueberry.

obguthr (4021) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2009
Draft: Raspberry aroma with a light malt undercurrent. Cloudy golden pour with a medium white head, good lacing. It tastes of stale malt and an appropriate amount of raspberries. Decent if Iím in the right mood.

12oz bottle. Pours clear golden color. Aroma of raspberry juice. Flavor is of light malt. Distant raspberry flavor. All scent, lacking flavor. How come it is still pale colored? Is it fruit of a CLEAR extract?

big raspberry, grape aroma. smells like straight up grape juice. However, the taste is a big let down. The berry is very subtle and the rest of the beer is quite bland. Very light malt sweetness, light body.

blklab2007 (1999) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 12, 2009
bottle poured a dark golden in color with a foamy white head that fizzled out immediately. aroma has sweet artificial raspberry and a bit of grains. light crisp mouth feel leads to a flavor over run by the raspberry extract. I just donít see this as a beer but more of a wine cooler type thing.

Pours a translucent pale yellow with a one finger white head. The nose is sweet, shows some raspberry, some grassy hops, corn, raspberry isnít super authentic but isnít super artificial either. The flavor is mildly sweet, pronounced raspberry character, grassy hops, corn, mild tartness.
