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.

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...

Clear golden pour with pinkish tinge and small white head. Aroma of raspberries, wheat, grains and faint hops. Taste of tart raspberries, wheat, grains, faint hops and slightly metallic. Light bodied, fizzy carbonation, metallic aftertaste.

Clear golden, smells strongly and sweetly of berries. Thin and watery, soda like carbonation, not sweet actually but mostly berry flavor with some light grain in the end. Drinkable.

On tap @ Moxie's Edmonton. Pours a clear gold with a faint pink tinge. Aromas of light raspberry and biscuity malts. Tastes are similar to aroma with slight sweetness. Light and creamy on the palate, mild biscuity finish. Very pleasant session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Modest head that disappears quick and a slightly red copper body. aroma of raspberries and wood. flavour is nice dry raspberry with a dry finish. nice, good balance of fruit against the beer.

Bottle . Pours a clear copper, half finger of fast disappearing white head. Nose is raspberry. Tastes grain forward, a little essence of raspberry.

Pours a slightly hazy orange gold with a short white head diminishing quickly to a thin skim and spotty lacing. Nose is sweet raspberry and faint biscuit malt, with just a hint of funk as the bottle progresses. Taste follows suit, leading out sweet, with no hop presence. Mouth feel tends to the watery side, with low carbonation. I only bought this because it was both a local brewery, and on the discount shelf. It’s a good thing I didn’t have high hopes, because they’d’ve been dashed. It’s not bad, as such, but it doesn’t have a lot of character. The fruit doesn’t taste artificial, and there’s even a little funk, but some hop presence would’ve been nice. Not bad, but not all that interesting.

341 ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber colour with a small white head. Raspberry aroma. Sweet flavour is raspberry with a faintly bitter finish. Light body with a watery texture and fizzy carbonation. Not bad for a fruit beer.

On tap at Wild Rose, pours brings out nasty artificial berries on top of chemical detergent notes. Flavour brings out faded artificial berries that thankfully mask shitty chemical notes. Man, this is really bad - what were they going for here?!
