2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
All these years I’ve passed over this on the shelf, I never knew there was a Raspberry version.
Pours a crystal clear deep golden color with a smallish white head that quickly dissipates to a cap. Smells of raspberry syrup mostly. It’s a powerful raspberry aroma, I can’t smell any beer underneath. The flavor is a hint tamer on the raspberry front. The flavor brings spicy wheat, a bit of earth and butter to the mix. Medium to light body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. All these years and even the anticipation couldn’t make this a great beer. Its kind of one dimensional and frankly a bit boring, not my cup of beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 ounce bottle from Nikkis Liquors. Pours a clear golden color with a large frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of tart raspberries and a weird almost cheese-like note. The taste is sweet, artificial raspberries, a spicy note and wheat. Thin-medium bodied. Not very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very pale yellow-gold (straw), clear and luminous, tall white head,
Light body but assertive flavors, bitter, rather dry, long aftertaste.
You are hit at the first sip by an intense flavor mix of raspberry, hops, bitter herbs and with time the malt comes through.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Another 12 oz bottle Purchased from Bert’s Better Beers, Hooskett, NH. Poured into a pint glass. Fast dissipating fizzy head, tons of carbonation in this one. Yet, the head went down to nothing with no lace. Nose of lots of berries. I get almost nothing but tart berries with a light wheat backbone. Clean and crisp finish. I wasn’t expecting much from this…. And it was a bit better than I thought it would be.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Color looks like champagne, very bubbly. Left a thick white bubbly head. Aroma reminded me of raspberry cough drops. Taste is wheat up front with light tart raspberry in the finish. Overall it’s ok. Not one I would seek out again.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle. My first thought is these are not fresh rasberries. refreshing and very drinkable but not the best tasting.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear light and pale golden color. Aroma is of malts, wheat, and raspberry. Flavor is about the same with the raspberry really coming through from start to finish. Leaves a nice crisp raspberry finish. This is better than most raspberry brews I’ve had.
