0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2008 "...the flavour is very bland as if each taste cancels themselves out."
I agree, but this for me is not a good thing. Purchased 6 bottles of this stuff and pours with almost no head at all that quickly disappears. The aftertaste is a bit heavy for me.
I don’t think I could stomach another one. Perhaps my girlfriend might enjoy it..
Not a very good raspberry beer IMO.
I almost want my $12.00 bucks back...

On draught at State and Main in Edmonton. Very rapsberryish, but also very mediciney. Not good at all.

The only aroma this fruit beer leaves is a tart raspberry smell. Pinkish hue beer with a 2 finger head. Taste is impeccable (if you like raspberrys) with a light malty finish. My friends and I love this underrated beer.

Wow. Lame. Drank from the bottle. Aroma of light lager with a very mild fruit aroma. Taste is watery, slight hint of fruit. Not worth the effort.

33 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada. Pale pink hued wheat colour. Raspberry and basementy aroma. Mild flavour, not overly sweet, then a tartness on the finish.

Sample at the Picaroons Brewers Bash. Off pink colour. Had a really nice raspberry aroma, but the taste didn't hold up. A summer novelty at best.

A refreshing fruit beverage from the ale makers in Calgary known as Wild Rose. I suppose they used wild Raspberries in this too. They say ’Drink the pink’, well I’ve drank the pink, except it was more of a pinkish orange. Grassy malt and weak raspberry are the odours du jour. The raspberries are a little more noticeable in the taste because they lend a refreshing tartness.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours an almost clear golden colour with a pink tinge and a small thin white head. Aroma is tart raspberry, mild sweet malts and some bready notes. Flavour is subtle tart raspberry, lightly malty and a touch of bitterness on the finish.

Tap @ the brewery. A fairly light touch with the berries keeps this from being just about the fruit but the underlying ale doesn’t bring much to the table.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very hazy, very light yellow color. Looks very watery. Aroma has a strong, freshly ripened raspberry nose with almost nothing else coming through. Flavor has a very natural raspberry fruitiness with a light 2-row malt touch. Body is very light, slightly fizzy. Overall the brew is what you would expect. Lots of fruit flavor, not a lot of anything else. This beer succeeded in not presenting the drinker with a fake fruity flavor but there really isn’t anything else there to make you want to drink it. I wish there were just a touch more of some malt presence to make it a bit more "beery".
