Ibrew2or3 (6910) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 1, 2011
12oz bottle pours a brilliantly clear deep ruby amber with 20 second tan head. The aroma is full with esters such as sweet cherries, raspberries and sugar sweetened cranberries. I get a touch of maybe malt in the background. The flavor delivers ripe red apple, ripe cherries and a moderate level of tart raspberries all rolling slowly into brief moments of almost candy like rauch malts. Cool! Some rauch? Into the finish it picks up a mild chalky yeasty sense as well as dry roasted malts to go along with everything else. Interesting brew.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2011
12oz bottle from Capone’s, Norristown. All I knew on purchasing this was that it was a dubbel, so I was little prepared for the experience. Slightly murky brown pour with a very lively carbonation. Nose was softly fruity, with ripe yeast. So far as expected. But the flavors were really what threw me off initially. It tasted like a grape soda dubbel, one that was perhaps halfway to an under-developed sour. Seeing some of the ingredients added explains things a bit, but I hardly found it an enjoyable brew.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 27, 2011
bottle thanks to Rich! Pours dark ruby red with a small film of a light brown head. Nose is a nice burst of fresh raspberries and some bread like malts and almost just a touch of toasted or roast malts. Flavor is medium dry overall and finishes dry and clean. The raspberries are far less noticeable in the flavor profile than the nose. I don’t really get a lot of chocolate but maybe that’s what im mistaking for the light roasted character. Overall a really interesting beer. Glad to try it out.

JFGrind (1845) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Served at the Hershey Lodge, when I asked the style bartender replied "raspberry porter". Ahh...NO! The color of the Scratch #42 is no where near dark. Medium bodied Abbey Dubbel, raspberry sweetness and breadiness yeast. Interesting combo of flavors, just a bit too sweet for my palate.

nimbleprop (4881) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 18, 2011
4oz pour at Churchkey. Pours a hazy, purple with one ring of white head. Nose of raspberry, nail polish, candy, flowers. Flavor is raspberry candy, honey, light candy sugar, a little medicinal. Medium bodied, medicinal finish.

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2011
Bottle… Clear burnt-orange ale with a rosy tint and a small, fizzy, off-white head. Decent retention. The bouquet is of raspberry jam with a whisper of vanilla and a rumor of clove. Medium-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The flavor showcases tart raspberries flanked by mild malt sweetness and low hop bitterness. Tangy, ultra-dry finish. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

KornDogg (529) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2011
Bottle. Raspberry aroma. Amber body with thin head. Flavor begins sweet with raspberry, hints of vanilla smoothness... The mad elf yeast is definitely noticeable. A very fruity abbey dubbel
