2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Is a pale amber color with hints of raspberry and a dry grainy finish. Pretty much what I expected.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.
