3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2014 Pours golden with a nice lingering head that laces well. Nose is strong of raspberry, unfortunately, the taste is not as pronounced. The raspberry is there, and asserts itself more as it warms, but with nothing else to make a more complex flavor profile, it comes across as a tad bland. The beer is somewhat dry, with a touch of sweetness on the finish. A nice residual raspberry flavor lingers after the finish. Body is light and is well carbonated. Overall a very good summer ale. A good choice for after cutting grass in the heat.

watery-like raspberry vitamin water. Drink Lindemann’s framboise instead. Don’t let the cute dog on the label fool you.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Aroma of light malt and raspberry. Nearly clear medium amber with a white rim head, bands of lace. Taste is similar to Framboise,....only much weaker. It certainly agreeable enough, but the strength reflects the 3.9% abv - weak all the way. Not quite a keeper.

Aroma: lightly cooked raspberries, raspberry jam and wheat bread. Very fruity.
Flavor: Also quite fruity. Good but not great raspberry flavor. Mild sweetness.
Feel: light body with crisp, medium+ carbonation. Clean, semi-dry finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes, actually notes from August of 2012, sorry for the late upload.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a dark orange close to reddish/brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Lacing, uh...it was slightly there - speckled but in a messy sort of way.
The smell had some tart raspberry but then a sweet raspberry allowing a decent wheaty/graininess to come in.
The taste was mainly just the tart raspberry and the sweet raspberry, slightly inviting.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me. There was a slight dry raspberry-esque sort of finish.
Overall, decent raspberry ale I think I could do again.

genuine raspberry flavor complete with accompanying expected perfume notes. foamy mouth feel and slightly light body the taste is nearly exact to the aroma. fairly sweet, tangy, then dry with some wheat. bright and interesting as a taster or short lunch beer. has that cloying possibility.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle. Amber with small head. Mild malt body with some raspberry thrown in. Pretty average fruit beer. I feel like every brewery in America makes a beer like this.
