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.

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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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".

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
smells of strong raspberry and weakly wheat, pours gold with a pinkish hue. The head is small. The raspberry flavor is stronger and somewhat sweeter than expected. Clean smooth finish with a little tartness. Interesting overall but to sweet for my liking
