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.

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 (12777) - 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.

MatKool (64) - CANADA - SEP 9, 2005
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.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 6, 2005
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.

pootzboy (1594) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2004
Poured a dark peach color (tinge of pink in straw)....medium carbonation... Had a chunky 2 finger cap that laced out quickly and clings to the glass through the drink (about what you'd expect from a brewer that simply bottles their draft beers). Aromas of berries, and grassy hop...sweet malt as well. Started fairly tart, light (almost watery) sweetish body that finishes with a decent bready aftertaste punctuated with a twang of berry tartness....a nice light summer drink but for my preferences I’d rather see Wild Rose shelve this one as a seasonal and put the cherry porter into year round production.

TimE (3298) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 28, 2004
Is a pale amber color with hints of raspberry and a dry grainy finish. Pretty much what I expected.

NectarFarm (128) - Calgary, CANADA - SEP 17, 2003
i thought this was really unbalanced and the raspberry was just bad tasting. sickly tartness that doesn't sit well with me.

presario (4695) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 16, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2007 In the summer, on a patio 3.2. Otherwise: 1L bottle. peach coloured. Lite foamy lasting head and lacing. Light rasberry aroma. Very lite wheat beer with strong tart rasberry edge. More like a cooler than a beer. Maybe a good starter beer for your girlfriend who doesn’t like beer.
