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

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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

Is a pale amber color with hints of raspberry and a dry grainy finish. Pretty much what I expected.

i thought this was really unbalanced and the raspberry was just bad tasting. sickly tartness that doesn't sit well with me.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

To uderstand this beer you must understand "patio," season. It is a real nice hot weather ale with a pink dusty gold appearance. you will usually get the "North American," pour, which is headless( what a shame). There is a slight nose of raspberry, and a tart blonde ale flavor. It is easy on the palate and great in teh Summer. Personally I do not even like fruit beers, but this one is done right. It leaves the "BEER" in fruit beer.

Mild berry aroma. Pours amber brown with a pinkish tinge. Flat with thin head. The raspberry flavour is dominant and that's not really a good thing. It makes the beer one dimensional and lacking balance. Too sweet to the point of being cloying. If you want to try Wild Rose stick to the Brown Ale or Velvet Fog.
