COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A light ale made with 100% real raspberries in every batch. The rasberries give this beer a fruity aroma while keeping the beer balanced in taste. The raspberry flavor is not "oversweet" or "overpowering". We believe our beers should be "beer 1st,fruit 2nd".

DConMan (114) - Ballwin, Missouri, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Bought a 12 FL OZ bottle of this from Donnie’s Homespun Pizza in Decatur, IL for $4. Poured from the Bright Red/Green/Black Labeled bottle into a 16oz Stone IPA Pint Glass. Had no freshness date on the bottle. Aroma- Big sweetness and light raspberries make up this nose. Candied and very seducing. Appearance- Pours no head at all... Hmm. Carbonation or date issues? No lacing is left either. The body is a dark and deep orange color. Flavor- Has an upfront sweet flavor and then breaks into an average wheat flavor. Raspberry flavor was dry and well hidden... No hops or bitterness at the finish. Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, High Carbonation, and has a slight raspberry finish. Better then the flavor! Overall Impression- A decent fruit beer by Dark Horse but expected much more from these guys! It could have been an outdated brew but who knows without the B.O.D. Average when it comes down to it.

Sweet Ale with a raspberry after taste. Not as good as Founders Raspberry, but not too bad! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Raspberries do not dominate, and there was plenty of body. Amber color, attractive, nice tart edge to this. A good last beer.

Bottle. Pours a hazy pinkish amber with a small white head. Aroma of tart raspberries, grass and wheat. Flavor of raspberries, wheat, grass, cereal grains and had a touch of spice.

Light rosy amber with a pale head. Aroma is raspberry, berries, rhubarb, berry candy. Light bodied, sweet on the palate with a fake fruit character. Taste is raspberry candy soaked in beer.

kchampagne (173) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2016
Pours a light amber to red color. Head dissipates quickly. Minimal raspberry aroma with sweet malt. Not as much raspberry I was hoping for given the name, but I guess that is what they were going for. This is a refreshing and easy to drink beer.

This is honestly awful. Tastes like cough syrup. Is basically the same price as founders rubeaus. Buy that instead.

3.4
Maakun (5548) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2016
Bottle at St Cece’s Detroit. Slight hazy pinkish orange golden. Cooked raspberries, light green leaves, caramel and dough. Some bitter herbs and grass with light bread. Medium sweet and very light sour and bitter. Medium bodied.
