2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fresh raspberry character over lightly tart wheat. Clear, pale copper coloured body is topped by a low white head that recedes slowly to ring. Sweet undertone to the tart wheat raspberry combination that works quite nicely although the aftertaste is a bit "jammy" . Medium light body has decent carbonation that lightly prickles the tongue. Sampled on tap at the brewery tasting room.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a good raspberry beer, that may even be able to be kicked up a notch if a similar yeast like Erdinger was used...
It has a very dry finish, not unpleasant, and it goes great with a salad. One of my favorites from the brewery. I had some on tap at Original Joes in Kensington during Stampede, and it went down quickly while I was sitting on their patio under the late afternoon sun...

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On-tap at the brewery. Light head on reddish pink colour. Some lace.Fruitish aroma and decent raspberry taste, but a definite fruit beer not very rich. No lambic here.

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