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.

3.5 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...

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.

Bottle. Light see through orange, thin white head that dies quickly. Faint hint of raspberry in the aroma. Light mouthfeel, little carbonation. Horrid aftertaste. Maybe the worst beer i have ever tried.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale amber with a hint of pink. Quite carbonated which contributes to the feeling that this is a light beer. Aromas of leafy fresh raspberries and some sweet malt. Fresh raspberry tartness overlying caramel and pale malts. Not too sweet. Lighter mouthfeel. A fruit beer that achieves what it sets out to be, rather than becoming a cooler in beer’s clothing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale hazy amber colour with a thin white head. Soft raspberry aroma, light milky/creamy aroma with a bit of wheaty spiciness as well. Flavour is pretty good, tart raspberry and a bit of lactic acidity. Thin-bodied but very drinkable. Fairly tart and dry finish keep this from being cloying like many raspberry beers.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - Pours out ruby tinted light but clear of yeast. (I was hoping for a turbid cloudy yeast filled stew) With a light pinky white head. Raspberries and wheat malt aroma. Flavor of wheat and raspberry with a tiny bit sweetness Needs a bit of acidity or a bit of sourness and a bit more raspberry kick. Also they need to not filter all the yeast out. They should take their velvet fog recipe and add some sour profile raspberries.
