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.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2009
Experienced from a 12oz bottle in a pub glass. The beer pours a medium yellow with a white head. The aroma is actually somewhat inviting. I would not classify it as being natural raspberries, but it was nice, especially on a warm summer evening. However, the palate was a pretty astoundingly disappointing. Yes, there was plenty of raspberry extract or concentrate character, however, there was no hint that this was a beer. It tasted far more like a Zima or something of that ilk. Overall, great for girls who donít like beer, but little else.

Great aroma. This one Iím tasting with Southern Tier Raspberry wheat which isnít great so relative comparison worth noting. Kind of has a mouth full of fluff flavor that isnít so good--too carbonated.

on draft. This was a very light yellow beer with a big head. The aroma was pretty good with a big nose of sweet fruit, but then the flavor was really disappointing. It was syrupy sweet, and tasted like caramel corn. the mouthfeel was watery and thin.

demdeac40 (299) - Etowah, North Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2009
Pours a golden yellow with a huge white head and lots of carbonation. Aroma is fresh raspberries, very nice, and a nice malt background. Nice raspberry flavor, not cloying or mediciney. A little tart and a nice mouthfeel. A little creamy but finishes fairly crisp with a soft after taste of raspberry. Really good fruit beer.

Suttree (5265) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 20, 2009
Pinkish red. Smells like a raspberry Pop-Tart. Seems to do a pretty good job of avoiding too much cloying sweetness - it seems rather light, actually. Dryish finish. Not bad at all.

ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - APR 19, 2009
Pours dark gold with off white head. Strong raspberry (duh). Strong, sweet raspberry flavor with a carbonic bite. Slight creaminess eases into tart finish. Good for what it is but probably wonít revisit anytime soon

yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - APR 13, 2009
Aroma sweet raspberries and tastes slightly metallic and sweet. raspberries noticable with other berries. A bit thin.

That1Guy (1963) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2009
Crushed with Jakebra. Nose and flavor dominated by raspberries, but not enough. Very thin bodied. Pleasant, but compared to the NG mad man, this one is very lacking.

Butters (3848) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2009
Sampled at the Impromptu Butterís 5th cellar clearance. Near clear gold pour with fair white head. Nose is massive sweet raspberry much like a lindemanís 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.
