copper color, strong aroma of raspberries which are also there in the taste, with a hop mix that makes for easy drinking and smooth finish, no unpleasant aftertaste like most fruit beers. DocLock (10721) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2007
Bottle from sliffy via Mystery Swap 2.0. Turbid deep orangy coppery pour with 1-finger whitish head. Aroma of big fresh, earthy raspberries, caramel malt, slight hopcitrus. Tastes of freshly picked raspberries, with earthy malt notes, plus hops and citrus hints. Refreshing. TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2007
12 oz bottle. Not quite clear woody orange with a slim khaki head. Raspberry duck sauce and hay. Medium mouthfeel, light carb. Raspberry and mild burnt toffee, but never really sweet. Muddy lemon pith emerges to add some drying. Bitter, vegetal aftertaste gets metallic. My first disappointment from Dark Horse. ganache (5955) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 14, 2007
Bottle. Malty nose with a subtle nuance of raspberry. Hazy golden-orange with a fizzy beige head. Lightly bitter taste with citrus (lemon-lime) to complement the raspberry. Some sourness and yeast. Light body, sour aftertaste. Made with a deft touch. nolankowal (938) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2007
Bottle. Light amber pour with a white head. Aroma of raspberry-flavored cereal...a bit of funk as well. Light yet concentrated raspberry flavor...sweet corn elements and some light malt. Decent carbonation over the light body with a slightlt botter/dry finish.

Thanks to Silphium for the bottle. Pours yeast-cloudy amber with a small head. Aroma is raspberries and malt in almost equal proportions. Flavor was malt sweet and raspberry sour, and not bad. Light body. Thin texture. Better than average for a fruit beers. Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - FEB 23, 2007
Not a lot in the way of aroma, little head. Cloudy orange-tan body. Mild, lightly watery mouth-feel. Good balance of raspberry and wheat characteristics with a lightly bitter, hoppy finish. jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Bottle thanks to Sliffy. Poured a clear amber body with thin head. Aroma is of fresh raspberries and sugar. Taste is of sugar and raspberry flavored water. Odd balanced but found myself liking it the more I drank it. Decent palate. DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Bottle. Cloudy orange-pink body, not much head. Raspberry and mango round out the fruity-sweet nose. The flavor has an authentic, fresh off the vine raspberry flavor. There’s fruit tartness and sweetness as well as that dry, bitter stemminess that you taste on the outside of the berry. Otherwise there are clean pale malts in the background finishing with dry ragweed-like hops. This is a good fruit beer because it’s not so damn sweet like they tend to be. hopscotch (11161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2007
Bottle... Hazy golden ale with orange highlights and a small, frothy, white head. Acidic, fruity aroma; raspberry and citrus. Thin, soapy flavor... also tart, tangy and fruity. Lightly pungent, tangy finish.
