Draft at Capones, pours hazy ruby with white head and lacing. Notes of fake raspberry, cranberry, very sweet malt, tart fruit, cake batter. Finish is an overly malty and oatmeal like quality. Not a good beer, ill stick to the offering from New Glarus.

From a 12 oz into a snifter. Pours a beAutiful bright red with no lacing. Very raspberry aroma. Mouthfeel is light with little carbonation, almost slick. Taste is full up raspberries. Like a high class Raspberry four loko. But classy. No alcohol taste is present. It's full on Jesus Juice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very dark. Practically no head. Malty raspberry aroma and.flavor. finishes a little dry. A full bodied full flavored beer if you love fruit.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, beet red pour with slightly pink head, aroma brought huge sweet raspberries, slight vanilla, caramel, some slight biscuit and bread, but the raspberries dominate. Taste is a sweet mix of raspberry, some seed, slightly sweet jammy notes go into some spice, bread, biscuit, finishing sweet. Wish it had a bit more tartness from the berry, but overall its well made.

superspak (5877) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - JUL 15, 2013
12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, bottled on 6/6/2013. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby red color with a 1 finger dense pink head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of huge tart raspberry, raspberry juice, raspberry skin, floral, and light bread. Fantastic aromas with big authentic raspberry notes; and big strength. Exactly what was expected. Taste of big tart raspberry, raspberry juice, raspberry skin, floral, bread, grass, and light floral earthiness. Lingering notes of tart raspberry, raspberry skin, floral bread, grass, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance of raspberry and malt flavors; with nice robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and moderately syrupy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent fruit beer! Great balance and robustness of authentic raspberry flavor; and extremely smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

Clear purplish pink pour with a big pink head. Aroma is sweet raspberry with some light graininess. Taste is syrupy sweet raspberry with some subtle tartness. Heavy sticky palate. Soft carbonation. Not bad but pretty heavy and sweet.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2013 The aroma is raspberries, and raspberries. Cloudy yellow in color, pink hue, white/pink head. The flavor is again raspberries, light cereal grains, pepper, yeast. The finish is pepper, yeasty. Medium in body. Not bad.

I went into this beer expecting not to like it, but oh my, it was good. Definitely raspberry through and through, with nice carbonation, but the smell of malts are still there enough to remind you this is indeed a beer.

Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle to glass. I’m not usually a fruit beer guy, but was told I had to try it. Glad I did. Pours a beautiful slightly hazy deep reddish-rose color, with maybe some light brownish-amber tint, with a thin but lasting off-white pinkish head that almost shimmers as it coats the glass. Aroma is quite sweet, with strong raspberry notes, and a bit of a sour tinge. Flavor is also very sweet and lasting, with a mild light malt characteristic. Oh Founders, how I love all that you are.

4.5
BrettTaylor (784) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Pours from the bottle a beautiful garnet color with a light head, medium lacing. Carbonation is just right, with small framboise-like bubbles. Aroma is not too strong, a little raspberry and wheat on the nose. Taste is RASPBERRY with a bit of wheat sweetness underneath. This is very very good, especially if you love raspberry like I do.
