Pours red with a lasting light head. Real nice aroma of raspberries and cream, some wheat. Nice is nice and refreshing, raspberry taste is pretty prominent rather than a subtle accent.
650ml bottle from Woodmans in Waukesha, shared with LauraLou, PracticePlastic, and #1BowlingCubsFan. Copper amber pour. Raspberries, grapes, maybe apple. More a juice, in some ways. Tart with a bit of sweet. Shrug? 13.3 jonno (3015) - JAPAN - NOV 26, 2017

on tap at Crafty's in Northeast Philly - slightly tart raspberry flavor. Raspberry aroma. Not a fan. sunteakae05 (6) - - NOV 8, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2017 Top 3 on my list! High abv and a great pale ale with a mild raspberry flavor, somewhat close to a sour cider beer. Might not be everyone’s “cup of tea”, but it’s definitely worth trying! vyvvy (6858) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 4, 2017
Pours deep reddish amber with a dense white head. The aroma has rich malt, raspberries, pith and some Belgian notes. It has a smooth medium body with soft carbonation. The taste has the aroma notes with some alcohol and more Belgian notes. Nice.

My one comment on this beer, is that I wish it was a little bit more sour. That would take this beer from a 3 to a 5 really quick. tmoreau (4753) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2017
Shared bomber poured to snifters displaying a clear, copper color, with a modest layer of bubbly white foam, and spots of lacing. The nose was raspberry, candy sweetness, and a bit of vanilla wafer. Medium bodied, with average carbonation, the taste was as raspberry syrup, like you'd add to embellish a Berliner Weisse, with slight hints of cocoa & tea, and subtle tartness to the finish. Not a big Fruit Beer fan, but this was nicely presented. GarrettB (1696) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 7, 2017
December 30th, 2014 - I’ve always enjoyed the Brainless series as local sour fruit beers go. But this is the first time trying the Brainless Raspberries, a lovely pink brew with a refreshing clarity and just the thinnest of heads. The aroma reminds me of sweet cotton candy, decorated with fresh raspberries and chunks of watermelon, with a crescent of strawberry in there too. The taste is more sour than the aroma promises, but darkness quickly, getting malty almost like New Belgium’s Frambozen. It is a fascinating brew that changes suddenly, which always scores well with me. unclemike (3197) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - JUN 12, 2017
poured a clear salmon with a lasting pink head. Aromas of raspberry and cookie. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread and raspberry with a smooth lingering raspberry finish. blipp (9929) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 29, 2017
Draft. Pours reddish amber with a white head. Jammy raspberry sweetness, mild acidity, and a fresh jammy finish. Tasty.
