Chandra’s favorite of the night (I think she drank 3 glasses of it). One out of about 25 that I sampled at the 2017 KLCC Brewfest! (No memory).

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells of a berry field. Nice fluffy white head with sticky lacing. Goes down extremely smoooth. Explosion of raspberry flavor and not too sweet which can sometimes be an issue with fruit beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Chuck’s 85th, Seattle. Thin cream on darker rose, clear body. Pale clean raspberry on nose. Thick, sticky sweet body. Creamy weight with lighter raspberry tart on finish. Oddly thick and cloying, especially unexpected by the appearance. Slight lactic character, like a raspberry cream ale. Pretty cloying. Raspberry tartness, while nice, is rather dominated by the heavy body. Just weird.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can poured. Trying to remember how many ratings of Founders I complained that they hadn’t shown up in Seattle yet. Pretty cool to swing by the local on the way home and pick up cans of mixed Founders for 2 bucks a piece. I’m sure I’ll get used to it. A clean ruby pour with a patchy, lasting fizz head. Sweet red raspberry aroma that’s also slightly floral. Flavor is raspberry juice. Slightly tart, more so sweet. A little syrupy. Cool and refreshing. Doesn’t get a whole lot more raspberry than this offering. Overall a very unique beer. I will choose to complain about there being too much fruit in a fruit beer. Good thing I love raspberries. I like it.

Bright and slightly hazy pink. Huge creamy head. Smells like liquefied sugar. Outrageously sweet.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Red-rubiny with non-dense small head that recedes quickly. Smells like raspberry syrup. Taste is sweet fizzy radpberry syrup on a malty base. Lacks body. Medium carbonation. Leaves a sticky sweet aftertaste. Not a fan of the style in general, but this is not a good representation in any case.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Taniguchi. Pours a lovely clear ruby red with a light pink head. Big raspberry aroma, mostly jammy but a touch syrupy and sweet. Good spritzy start with the malt presenting midway, bringing a full sweet raspberry jam feel that lingers on the palate. Nice stuff, it keeps the sweetness in check with a hopped tart finish. I couldn’t go more than a can though.
