Look - cloudy, amber/orange color. Head isn’t really there so much. Smell - raspberry, amazing. Very sweet. For a 10.6 percent beer the alcohol is masked pretty well. Taste - Wow, for a 10.5 percent beer, you cannot taste the alcohol. After a couple sips you start feeling all warm inside. Raspeberry obviously dominates the taste along with just straight up sweet. Amazingly well balanced for a 10.5 percent beer.

Tap at Weyerbacher open house. Pours a nice slightly cloudy reddish amber color with a small lacing white head. Aroma is of raspberry and some sweet malts. Taste is complex and very nicely balanced, raspberry isn’t overpowering. Almost reminds me of a raspberry cookie. Impressed with this one.

adrian910ss (2361) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2008
On draft. Pours a muddy sandy brown with a medium white head. Aroma of raspberry preserves with a touch of rye. Taste of wild raspberries with a touch of rye to it. Not very sweet and has a slightly bitter finish to it.

TomDecapolis (4485) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAR 29, 2008
On tap at Weyerbacher Open House 08. Pours a lightly hazy brownish amber with a medium creamy/bubbly off white head. Aroma of raspberry, some rye notes, bready overall a nice raspberry nose. Flavor was a mix of the same. I liked how the drynesss of the rye toned down the sweetness of the raspberry. Nor sure which yeast was used but seems to have some Belgian esters going on.

DocLock (7872) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2007
Draft at DRE. Turbid dullish dark straw/dull reddish pour with off-white head. Aroma is fresh raspberries off the vine, some fruit, and earthy malt. Tastes fruity, with a hefty raspberry presence backed up by malt, some spirity notes, and back up hops. Does get a bit hot as it warms, but is unique and emminently quaffable.

Arayaga2 (1784) - portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Reddish orange with thin whitish head. Aroma is vinous and funky with huge raspberry presence. Taste is the same, and stingingly tart with acetic raspberry. Very nice, and very unusual. I never would have guessed on the ABV. $6/13oz draft

jason (1681) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Draft at Weyerbacher Open House. Nice red body with thin head. Aroma is rasberry, cheery. Flavor is lightly fruit, berry, cherry, delicate malt and rye. Smooth and very drinkable.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Heathen (1470) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 9, 2007
THOUGHTS: Reminds me of when I used to put orange Juice in my unsweetened iced-tead, but with raspberries. Very unique. TECHNICAL: On tap at the Grey Lodge. Poured a murky, medium to light brown with a small tan head that fully diminished and left no lacing. The aroma was raspberry, rye and a touch of alcohol. The initial flavor was sweet and acidic, while the finish was acidic and sour. The flavoar was orange, rye, raspberry and tea, with a little aclohol in the finish. It was not like any other beer I’ve ever tasted. The medium to full body had lightly tingly carbonation and almost felt like drinking carbonated orange juice. It had a moderately astringent and moderately acloholic finish.

egajdzis (5341) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2007
[Firewaters, AC] Poured a murky, red amber color with a small light tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of raspberry, caramel malts, toasted dough, and light alcohol. Taste of raspberry, rye, nuts, wood, light citrus, and a fair amount of alcohol in the finish. Soft, prickly mouthfeel.
