Well, upon opening the bottle, it smells like raspberry syrup. Pours a clear, pinky gold with a thin head. Thankfully the raspberry taste isn’t as strong as it smells - but it’s still definitely the dominant thing going on here. The rest of the beer definitely plays second fiddle, but what does come through is straightfoward and doesn’t interfere with the raspberry. Particularly on the finish. Nice crisp and clean mouthfeel - avoids coming off as syrupy - nice and refreshing.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. 4.5%. Pours a deep golden yellow with just a little bit of a pink tinge that I may be imagining, with a weak, bubbly white head. Aroma is strong raspberry. Taste is a malty lager taste with a hint of raspberry sweetness and a dose of raspberry tartness built in. Finish is tart, but not unpleasant. Overall, this is an interesting concept beer, but it just isn’t anything to get excited about.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2009 fairly ordinary fruit beer with a good nose and the raspberry flavor isn’t overpowering but compliments other ingredients nicely.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours gold/pink clear, head disappears quick. Aroma of raspberry. Tastes of malt with a light hint of raspberry. Pretty good, although it could use more raspberry flavour.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Better than most fruit beers, the raspberry is a nice accent to this beer and really compliments the nose. Nothing super special.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
