COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Light haze on a light yellow pour. Raspberry aroma that is subtle enough to not be overbearing. Taste is to the same proportions as the nose. Taste is there and not over the top. Could have more presence though.

Bottle. Pours a pale golden-yellow, with a pink hue. Nose is soft raspberries and malt. Palate shows good raspberry character, as well as light malt and yeast. Inoffensive and unexciting, but surprisingly refreshing when it’s way too hot outside. This beer is vastly better on tap.

The raspberry flavour and smell is exactly like a fresh raspberry from the pricly bushes. This is a beer first and a rasperry beer second. The fruit flavour is very noticable but not overpowering. However there is a definite distinction between the two flavours, almost like they are fighting to be noticed but neither wants to steal all the attention.

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - JAN 12, 2009
From 330ml bottle. Golden yellow coulour with the slightest pink hue. Nice balance, tastes like malt raspberrie, and grass. This is what a fruit beer should be.

Proteus93 (65) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Crisp golden. A somewhat fizzy white head... very short retention, leaving almost nothing behind. Very light aroma. The raspberry scent is there, but quite modest, and about the only thing noticable. Like the aroma, the raspberry is very light. A pale malt flavour, but not a whole lot more going on. Light, refreshing and a clean finish. Not the most complex thing, but a great summer beer, and an excellent candidate for an introduction to craft beer / macro-crossover

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 18, 2008
Wow. Great nose. Absolutely beautiful wrasp...err raspberries with a lacing of sugar cane. A pale to orange colour with a hint of pink. Light raspberry mouth, not nearly as much as I expected. Some flower....and not much else. What happened here? It almost feels as if the true flavours are being held back by something. Did I aquire an off-bottle? Crisp enough, but entirely too light. A mixed bag. I’ll have to try another.

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 5, 2008
Blonde straw coloured body with no head. An aroma of light raspberrys and grassy citrus aromas. Light bodied and with an interesting mouthfeel. Overall, this beer is okay and would be good for sitting on a patio, but not much else.

Draught at the brewery
Hazy blond color. A quite simple ale with a very light raspberry aroma and a light raspberry flavor. Not for my taste.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2008 "...the flavour is very bland as if each taste cancels themselves out." I agree, but this for me is not a good thing. Purchased 6 bottles of this stuff and pours with almost no head at all that quickly disappears. The aftertaste is a bit heavy for me. I don’t think I could stomach another one. Perhaps my girlfriend might enjoy it.. Not a very good raspberry beer IMO. I almost want my $12.00 bucks back...

CapFlu (4493) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 16, 2008
(Draught) Sampled on February 10, 2008, at the brewpub. Strange reddish copper body with a quick dissipating, creamy white head. Nose is mildly raspberry but the flavour is very bland as if each taste cancels themselves out.
