12 oz. bottle from Tasty Beverage Company, Raleigh, NC (bottled June 10, 2013). Pours reddish, almost violet, with a thin off-white (yet slightly pink) head. Aroma of tart fruit, caramel malt, and light floral hops. Raspberry is obvious in the flavor but not as intense as say Blushing Monk or New Glarus Raspberry Tart. While I prefer the more intense flavor of those beers, this is still a great fruit beer.

Plenty of raspberry without becoming cloying

Deep raspberry red body with a dying pastel pink frothy head

A touch of earthy, funk-ish characteristics leading into big natural raspberry peaking to raspberry jam on a solid coating medium body with a touch of soft carbonation finishing with a light raspberry tartness

Aroma of nice tart raspberries. Really pretty dark magenta color with off white pink head. Taste is sweet initially the very berry and becomes tart at the end. Very simple but well done and delicious.

Bottle. Pours a ruby red color with pinkish head. Very tasty raspberry aroma and flavors. But kind of tastes like liquid raspberry jam.

JStax (5749) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a darker red to purple with a pink tinged head of foam. Aroma is fresh red raspberries and bread. Tastes very sweet and fruity. Lightly tart in the finish. I’m surprised at how much I enjoyed this one.

blklab2007 (2118) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle dated 6/10/13. Pour has a deep dark red color and a coating of off white head that fizzled off. Aroma has seedy raspberry, sweetness, and some malt. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation on the low side. Flavor blasts out the berry but it is not cloying or thick, seedy bitterness, touch of tartness, and a lingering finish.

jeremyh70 (1083) - Missouri, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Pours a clear ruby color with a big lavender tinted head that has good retention and lacing. Aroma is slightly tart with raspberry and grape notes and yeast and malt character. Taste is tannic with raspberry and grapes. Only a hint of tartness and some malt sweetness. Mouthfeel is semi sticky with a medium body and medium/high carbonation. Good balance of all the flavors but would have liked a bit more tartness. A fruit beer that I could enjoy.

alobar (3631) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Pours a reddish pink with a slightly pink head. Big raspberry aroma with a matching raspberry flavor with a hint of tartness at the back end. Very good for a fruit beer.

EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUL 2, 2013
The appearance is so gorgeous due to the rich and dark ruby red color with a ring of pink foam, and the aroma is very strongly raspberries with a hint of bread malts. The taste is quite sweet and slightly sour, which is just barely beer with a huge fruit character that just rounds out to a pleasant tartness; furthermore, the palate combines a medium body, thin texture, soft carbonation, and a long sweet finish. Upon the first sip, I knew that I had just discovered what summer beer is supposed to taste like.

wlajwl (6064) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Aroma is raspberries, malts and slightly musty. The flavor is raspberries, mild/medium sweetness, malts and a tart/tangy finish. About as close to NG Raspberry Tart without going to Wisconsin.
