v1rgil (151) - Burnaby, British Columbia, - JUN 22, 2012
From bottle pours a nice magenta with foamy white head. First sip is smooth sweet with strong raspberry sour at the back. Nice summer sipping beer.

Bierdimpfe (633) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2016
Clear dark gold, amber hue, with dense activity. Slightly foamy white 2 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with faint lacing. Flavors of raspberries, cranberries, caramel, sweet grains, corn, very faint herbal spices. Thick sweetness, minimal bitter hops. Light oily body with soft prickly carbonation. Light finish, lingering sweet grains and fruits, with very soft grassy hops. A little flat and thick on the tongue, with average freshness. Faint flavors, not bad but overly accessible, and a little unbalanced. Overall below average quality craft.

mathieuc (3872) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2016
Pours a really clear amber with an quickly fading white head that settles into a white rim that leaves nice lacing. Nose is that of an Ocktoberfest/Marzen almost with some toasted cereals, corn, bread and some very vague raspberries in the back. Taste is moderately sweet (a little more than that, in fact) and offers the same malty flavors with a lightly acidic edge from the "raspberries" I guess. Not crisp at all and a little syrupy even. Which is weird, because body is quite light. Moderate carbonation. Not enough fruits and just weak overall, classic macro swill. They usually put a lot of fake extracts in their fruit flavored beers, though, not sure what happened here?

Draft. Pink beer with a cream head. Light raspberry aroma. Raspberry and light malt flavor. Medium bodied. Raspberry and light malt lingers.

Franckg (1547) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2016 Robe cuivre claire avec un mince col de mousse. Rien nindique une prsence de framboises. Armes de confitures de baies, un peu de citron, miel et lger malt caramlis. En bouche, baies sucres et sans aucun doute artificielles, cocktail aux framboises, miel, citron, caramel. boire trs froide car les saveurs deviennent fades et le fruit prend le large au dtriment du malt. Texture un peu aqueuse, corps mince.

adamnowek (2404) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2016
Watery red colour. Watery fruity taste. This is basically a glass of crystal clear with booze.

PanMarek (404) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Clear reddish gold pour with thin foam and active carbonation. Smooth, sweet mouthfeel. Mild tartness at the end. Raspberry flavor dominates but touches of yeast come through. Overall effect is a little disappointing. The raspberry flavor seemed mannered, almost artificial.

UXO (1829) - CANADA - JUN 12, 2016
Appearance: hazy red-tinged deep gold with a short-lived white head, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: raspberry, grassy, pale crackery malt. (5/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, mild tart. (4/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, dry slightly astringent finish. (3/5) This is one of those very rare beers that I think could actually stand to be a bit sweeter. Theres some (somewhat fake-smelling) raspberry there, but its so very dry and astringent that its tasting more like berry seeds than flesh, or maybe watermelon peel. Im not sure more sweetness would have made it taste any less artificial, but it might be a little more palatable. (10/20)

CapFlu (5123) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 25, 2016
Pours a thin, white foamy quick dissipating head atop a peachy coloured body. Nose of sweet raspberry jam. The flavour is more subtle and seedy with a watery sweet dry finish. Okay.

bdleedahl (424) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 22, 2016
Quite mild raspberry flavour, pinkish clear in colour. It needs to be sour to be a good beer with this fruit flavour. And it should not be a part of their variety packs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sample at brewery. In the sweet aroma raspberry. The unclear pink red beer has a medium pinkish head. In the taste raspberry and thats it. Medium carbonated.
