COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Great Divide's mantra is that real fruit makes real beer, so Great Divide ferments Wild Raspberry Ale with hundreds of pounds of real red and black raspberries. Wild Raspberry Ale is a truly effervescent, ruby red ale that achieves the almost impossible balance between malted barley and tart raspberry fruitiness. Its naturally tart character makes Wild Raspberry the ultimate accompaniment to spicy Mexican food or on its own as a stand-alone session beer.

Pored into pint glass. Poured nice frothy head with color dark brown / copper. Raspberry ice tea is the nose. Truly fruity with heavy flavors of eating fresh raspberries. Some bitter malt there too for a good balance. Not bad!

part of a mix pack. foggy light red/pink color. aroma was pretty nice raspberry and the taste was of the kind but set off with a good balance of wheat and real beerness. Refreshing and light fruitiness.

Pours a caramel red color with a thick head if poured with gusto. Head quickly dissipates leaving only thin leftovers. The smell is off. A little sour, definite malt characters and slight mark of hay. The taste leaves little to be excited about. I couldn’t get over the awful metallic taste which i awesome was supposed to be a shot at rasberries. I first starting drinking this freezing cold. As it warms the smells become a lot more pleasant and the rasberries are very distinct, taste remains unpleasant though. I wanted to like it because the rest of Great Divides selection has really impressed me.

12 oz bottle pours a redish color with a nice white head. Aromas of raspberry, bigtime. medium bodied with raspberries in the taste. Almost too much

berrya785 (441) - Kansas, USA - MAR 31, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2012 Aroma of raspberries and a little citrus. Pours reddish amber with an off white head. Taste is very sweet with raspberry and fruit juice.

3.4
FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Pours a ruby/orange haze with a short-lived off white finger of head. Smells fresh - soft fruits, crisp greens, smells like spring. Taste nearly mirrors the nose. Very subtle tartness that comes with the fruit. A very approachable, balanced fruit beer. Don’t mind getting a few of these in a mixer.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours a reddish brown with a puffy white head. Aroma is full of raspberries. The taste is fruity and full of carbonation. This is not a fruit beer i’d recommend.

2.6
BVery (10297) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Bottle. Orange/pink pour with a white head that dissipates quickly. Nose was actually quite mild - lager with a hint of raspberry. Palate is a tad thin. Taste was dull - kind of flat, raspberry didn’t really pop out at all. I’m wondering how old this bottle is.

2.4
jtd6628 (362) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Ok beer. Aroma medium and sweet. The taste is strongly fruity and tart with a hint of sour.
