On tap at rattle n hum in NYC. One of the best fruit beers I’ve tried. Raspberry aroma and taste. Sweet, but not overly so. Body is light to medium.

Strong raspberry and light malt aroma. Cloudy red color with a medium pink head. Sweet throughout with a bitter finish. Still sweet in the end.

Beautiful cherry red color. Great raspberry smell with a little maltiness. Rich sweet (bit not too sweet) raspberry flavor. Surprisingly rich and full body - that is what makes this beer so good in my opinion. Amazing fruit beer.

maekchu (3613) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 22, 2013
Bottle. Big jammy nose: raspberry and strawberry. Very pretty deep red, with light pink head and good lace. Light sweetish berry juice initial / mid gets creamy and brings out some light hopping / finishes with the same light, cooling fruit notes and then dissipates. This is one for the "Beer or Not Beer" debates. I want to like it more than I do. It is good, especially during the warm summer. But it is nowhere close to the New Glarus type of fruit explosion and tartness.

carlb (107) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Pours a beautiful off-pink/mahogany red with a pink 1/4 inch collar of foam. The head dissipates rather quickly. Crisp raspberry nose. Bright fruity, raspberry notes on the palate. Dry-to-offf-dry: Less sweet than the typical fruit ale. Delicate lingering. Some Belgian lace. Highly refreshing. Great balance. The ABV is moderate and not noticeable. I’ll definitely look for it again. Perfect on a warm or hot day. Excellent accompaniment for lighter fare,

Bottle, thanks to b3shine. Beautiful ruby red pour with a moderate pink foamy crown. Aroma is fresh red raspberries with a slightly vinous quality. The palate opens with sugary sweetness, moving into jammy raspberry fruit, and closing with a slight tartness and stemminess. The sweetness carries through all the way to the end, more sweet than tart. But it bears mentioning that despite the sweet profile, the fruit remains centered and pure; there is no cloying corn syrup stickiness that I hate in so many of these fruit beers that carry a sweeter profile. Well done.

MaltOne (335) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 22, 2013
This may change your mind about fruit beers. Beautiful to look at, opaque red-brown with nice tannish-pink frothy head. Gentle aroma of fresh raspberries. Taste is beautifully balanced, mostly fresh raspberries; sweet, like fruit, but not like sugar; enough malt to give the beer more substance. Refreshing. Overall - Founders does it again - great beer experience, lots of finesse.

12 oz bottle pours a deep red color with a small white head. Aroma of raspberries dominate the nose. Light bodied, not to sweet, tart and refreshing

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2013 Thanks! Pours a deep almost neon pinkish red with a very small slightly pink head that recedes quickly. Aroma of sour berries and funk, with more malt presence than I expected (silly me for expecting a Blushing Monk type of brew). Flavor is big bold raspberry with some other flavors mixing in that I can’t put my finger on. A sefinite malt presence in the finish. Dry finish and plenty of carbonation. More like Cerise than Blushing Monk. Solid overall, but not spectacular.
