Poured very cloudy without any head really at all. It was more like large bubbles even with a vigorous pour. Very little carbonation. Aroma was a little malty, bready, and very little raspberry. Taste was a little caramel malty and not much else except for a mild raspberry. Kind of bland taste for a fruit beer. Kind of a thin watery body feel in the mouth. edfitz (118) - Toledo, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2006
Very light beer with a nice raspberry flavor. Not too sweet, a little tart. A nice little beer. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 12, 2006
Bottled. Poured a slightly-hazy medium amber with a quickly-receding cap of white head. The nose had raspberry concentrate and some wheaty notes.. not much else evident. Flavor had a rather enjoyable tangy fresh raspberry bite to it.. perhaps enhanced by the grainy feel on the palate... Lighter body with an OK feel to it. Raspberry seeds and grains at the finish. This was well-done. KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 4, 2006
Reddish orange amber color. Smell of malt, minor hops, blueberries, raspberries, flowers and ginger. Taste of malt, hops, tart raspberries, corn, some flowers and bitterness at the end. DrewTaylor (154) - Michigan, USA - DEC 3, 2006
Very light hops and a fairly strong hint of raspberry. Very small head. Very light tasting with a solid raspberry showing. Not a very stong tasting beer.

Tasted blind. Smells like ass-nuggets, but hey thats better that metal and corn. Beautiful beer other than the fact that there is virtually no head. Great mouthfeel, although I do like my beer chunky at the bottom of the bottle. Where’s the raspberry? The fruitiness or acidity has more of a cider vinegar or lemon taste. Overall just average but for all the wrong reasons. RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2006
12oz bottle. Aroma: Slightly sour raspberry, A touch of honey, and some grainy/crackery malts. Appearance: Hazy Amber in color. A full, frothy white head with nice retention. Fair lacing. Flavor: Biscuity grains, light raspberry that was more apparent in a light sourness then in raspberry flavor. Palate: Medium-light bodied and slightly watery. Medium carbonation. Getting a slight ’cottonmouth’ drying of the mouth in the finish. Overall: Pretty average. Was expecting more raspberry punch. Dogbrick (13547) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 27, 2006
This brew pours a yellow-gold color with a thin off-white head and spotty lacing. The aroma is like raspberry sherbet. Light-bodied and crisp with tart artificial raspbetry flavor and an underlying bitterness. The finish is fruity with a bit of malt, and the raspberry aftertaste does not last. This beer is passable and unmemorable. JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Pinkish gold body, soapy white head.
Grainy malt and raspberry aroma. Raspberry and malt bring hints/memories of Raspberry Eisbock. But not quite. It is a pretty good aroma, but plain.
Same with the taste. I am not a big fan of how raspberry is simply added to a basic ale. Its got some raspberry, light hopping, basic malt, but that’s it.

Pours orange with good carbonation and a small beige head. The aroma has metallic raspberry, dusty malts and a hint of coriander. Medium body with light carbonation. Taste is dirty and muddled with some raspberry, cough syrup and metallic sharpness. The finish has a lot of the same, but there is some spiciness and more medicinal qualities. Best to avoid this one, there are tons better fruit beers available.
