ok, i didn’t rate over a month ago, so this is by memory, but this is the beer that got me inteterested in beer again and into micro-beers and onto this site. Shame on me for not raiting it. Anyways it has a very nice fruity malty aroma. It is well-balanced, not too fruity like many fruit beers are. The raspberry flavor actually works and it has a nice lingering bittersweet aftertaste.

Strong aroma of rasberries. Not too sweet. Sour berry flavor with a little hop bite. Smooth and quenching.

I like this beer when it comes to the fruit styles. It isn’t too sweet, but has enough flavor to make it interesting.

presario (4594) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 28, 2006
On tap at Widmer. Orange-red. Very light head. Soft berry aroma. Lots of berry flavour but not overly strong. The odd hint of hops in the lightly tart finish.

hayduke (3322) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 13, 2006
At the brewery pub in Portland. On draft. An odd gold coor with minimal head. Strong fruit nose. Carbonation heavy. Lots of flavor. It was not bad for a fruit beer.

This beer is completely out of sync. When you have flavors fighting and opposing each other that is never good. Darkelf is right when he says the moderate bitterness clashes with the gentle tartness of the black raspberries. This overall has some great flavors to it, they are well represented, nice fruit flavors and the there is a generous portion of malt, but this is overall lacking.
