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.

Apr 26, tap @ Thirsty Dog, Akron. Rasbrries, rasberries, rasberries. Pours clear golden, no sign of rasberriy colour, but what an aroma. You feel it from miles away. Flavor is ... rasberries of course with nice malty and hoppy touch. Palate and finish is rasberry as well with nice bitter hoppy touch. Excllent summer beer.

This one is ranked a little low, I think. I’n not a big fan of fruit beers, but this one was pretty good. Nice berry aroma, raspberry flavor. A little tart and dry on the finish, kind of dries out the mouth. Not a whole lot going on, but what is going on is good.

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.

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.

Beauty: This beer is actually quite good. It has a little bit of a strong raspberry taste to it but it is overall good. It has a short finish and you can smell the raspberry, which is a great masker for other smells. Overall this is a great beer for someone that doesn’t quite like the taste of beer but wants one anyways. Beast: not available for tasting

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.

Smells awesome, tastes good, but it’s too sweet. The raspberry is fake tasting. Still refreshing, though.

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.

12oz bottle from mix pack. pours a hazy gold with a small, frothy white head. raspberry aroma with a strong berry scent. flavor is relatively un-sweet with a nice amount of berry notes. slightly bitter and even salty sometimes. lighter hints of cereal occasionally. light body and clean. i like a little more body and malt sweetness in fruit beers but this is pretty good for a low abv drink.
