It is a light bodied ale with a distinctive raspberry flavor and aroma and contains 4.5% by volume. It is made with whole raspberries (not extract!) and its light hopping and refreshing nature makes it a great hot weather patio beer.

Sample at the Picaroons Brewers Bash. Off pink colour. Had a really nice raspberry aroma, but the taste didn't hold up. A summer novelty at best. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A refreshing fruit beverage from the ale makers in Calgary known as Wild Rose. I suppose they used wild Raspberries in this too. They say ’Drink the pink’, well I’ve drank the pink, except it was more of a pinkish orange. Grassy malt and weak raspberry are the odours du jour. The raspberries are a little more noticeable in the taste because they lend a refreshing tartness.

Pours an almost clear golden colour with a pink tinge and a small thin white head. Aroma is tart raspberry, mild sweet malts and some bready notes. Flavour is subtle tart raspberry, lightly malty and a touch of bitterness on the finish.

Tap @ the brewery. A fairly light touch with the berries keeps this from being just about the fruit but the underlying ale doesn’t bring much to the table.

Narnad (1515) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Pours a very hazy, very light yellow color. Looks very watery. Aroma has a strong, freshly ripened raspberry nose with almost nothing else coming through. Flavor has a very natural raspberry fruitiness with a light 2-row malt touch. Body is very light, slightly fizzy. Overall the brew is what you would expect. Lots of fruit flavor, not a lot of anything else. This beer succeeded in not presenting the drinker with a fake fruity flavor but there really isn’t anything else there to make you want to drink it. I wish there were just a touch more of some malt presence to make it a bit more "beery".

Reimer96 (1729) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 10, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy pinkish correct with a small white ring. Aroma of tart raspberries, bread and light malts. Taste is a mild tart raspberry with some bready malts flavors and a very mild hop flavor on the finish. Not a fan of this beer but I can appreciate that it’s made with real fruit instead of extract.

Poured from 341mL bottle. Clear golden amber with minimal white head. Very dominant raspberry aroma. Mild malty taste with raspberry overlay. Very light, not much substance. A little watery overall.

reebtogi (5185) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 9, 2012
341ml bottle pours a pink tinged golden color with a small white head that leaves a few specks of lacing on the glass. Aroma is raspberries with some light malts and hops. Taste is raspberry sweetness with a little tartness some light malt sweetness and a trace of hop bitterness. An acceptable fruit beer, but nothing to brag about.
