On tap at Tangletown. Pours a light brown to dark amber with an off-white head. Very big raspberry aroma. Solid raspberry flavor but finishes up with a good hop backbone.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at Elysian Tanglewood. Dark golden; smells like a dusty raspberry. Sour, probably made with real berries. Flavor is a collision on wheat yeast and raspberry. Palate is rocky.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[1112-20080217] Tap @ Elysian Fields (Seattle, WA). Aroma pictures a raspberry bush drizzled in a little sweet cream. Murky, medium brown body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Malty wood and raspberry fruit flavour hints at hops. Medium body has a touch of sourness. Nice raspberry balance.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Elysian Fields. Comes out ruddy, almost orange, kinda grainy and definitely murky. Shows some feisty carb through the sides of the glass. Small, short-lived fizzy whitish head. Big sweet raspberry and bubble gum nose (but definitely mostly raspberry). Medium body, somewhat fizzy carb. Plenty of sweet fruity notes on the mid-palate, with a clean finish. This is fairly close to being in balance, and the carb isn’t way overdone. But with just a little tightening of those two things this could be a pretty dandy little beer.

Brewed by Tangletown location, had on tap at Capital Hill. Bartender described as a raspberry Hefe. Reddish brown with small head. Fresh raspberry aroma dominates. Taste is raspberry mixed with belgian yeast. Good, but almost has a soda-like quality. A little bitter to finish makes for an odd end. All-in-all, well made and worth trying. Love the fresh raspberry taste. Not syrupy at all and not too sweet.
