Red with pink head. Strong raspberry aroma. Strong raspberry flavor...hard to call it beer. More of a wine cooler with a kick. Sticky sweet...couldn’t even drink one. Not terrible flavor, but hard to classify this as a beer. There are a lot of good fruit beers out there, but this is syrupy and cheap tasting.

Picked up after a tour of the St. Louis brewery. OK, but not great. Try a New Glarus raspberry instead.

Fruity to the max. So much so that my wife liked it. Not much else to say about it.

A medium food dye red with a large light pink head. The nose was strong with the raspberries and not much else. Like the other wild beers the nose promises more fruit than the body delivers. There is a boozy flavor like cheap raspberry wine with carbonation. There is also a fake sugary sweetness in the woody finish. This starts flavorful with each sip, but ends in a sad way that makes you realize you are basically drinking a fruited malt liquor. Take a Colt 45 and dump in some raspberry juice and this would be the approximate result. Boozy and harsh, people that want raspberry flavor in their alcopops should stick to wine coolers.

12 oz bottle. Aroma is full of raspberry that almost masks a bland lager base. Pours cloudy ruby red with a small pink head. Taste is sweet and a bit tart; again, that bland lager base (Budweiser?) is noticeable underneath all that raspberry. Alcohol is noticeable, but I wouldn’t guess it’s 8%. Body is thin, texture is watery. Definitely drinkable, but nothing I’d go out of my way to drink again.

One of the very worst "beers" I’ve ever had the displeasure of tasting. Sweet as Molasses, just...not...a...beer

(bottle - 12 oz) Pale red/pink color with a dusty looking head. Sweet and candy-like aroma of raspberries. Almost has that cough medicine aroma. Flavor is a sickly sweet raspberry/cough drop mix. Too sweet for me.

fidelis83 (2208) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy red-orange with a tall, chunky pink head. Aroma smells like somebody made raspberry jello with fruit cocktail and used cheap, fusel alcohol laden malt liquor for the liquid. Flavor is pretty much the same, though much less pleasant. Palate is medium bodied, oily, slick and boozy with a light to medium carbonation. Terrible.
