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.

DuffMan (8942) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 24, 2006
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.

Love fruit beers. Wanted something in Canada like the Thomas Kemper, and by george, I found it! What a great summer beer.

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.

Rentalman (103) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2006
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.

Bottle. Pale yellow witha small white head. Tart fruity aroma. Flavour is pretty simplistic, delivering just enough of the tart fruity notes of the aroma. Not much else though, bit bland. Very tart raspberry notes linger a bit in the finish. Average to thin palate.

1L flip top brown bottle. Golden pour with a thin tight bubbled white head. Aroma had slight raspberry note, with a lot of wheat. Flavour was dryish, strong wheat character. Raspberry character was weak, little to no bitterness. Light body and crisp carbonation. Would have liked more fruit throughout.

Oakes (14844) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 23, 2005
Really light colour, a vague amberesque thing with a slight pinkness to it. No head. The aroma has some raspberry, with light champagne notes. Very thin body. No bitterness at all. No malt, either, just a vague hint of raspberry. A whisp of a beer. Thanks to microakes for the taste.

Pours a nice cherry color with a light pink head. Strong fruity/rasberry aroma. Malty tasting brew with rasberry accents highlighted by a smooth aftertaste.

1 l flip-top bottle. Hazy golden colour with a fully diminishing fizzy and frothy white head. Dry wheaty and lightly tart raspberry aroma. Light sweetened raspberry flavour with a dry bitter finish. Light to medium bodied, slightly syrupy mouthfeel.

Mullo (102) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2004
Beautiful appearance, very impressive. But not a regular beer at all. Has sour qulaities and an odd aroma - assumingly due to the berries in the recipe. Lots of flavour, but not my type of preference. Lacks balance, and perhaps less berry input. Not a beer i would drink more than one of.
