Poured a nice light golden color, clear with light carbonation. A nice what head that did have nice retention and some lace. Aroma had some biscuit malts and light honey. No real rye note. Flavor was nice but very light. No real hop presence to balance out the malts. No rye flavor. Too light on the palate. Not a bad beer, but lacking for sure.

Mild malt, mild hops, a bit of bread and a mild touch of raspberries. Color is light yellow with a touch of orange; small off-white head. Taste is crisp and dry with mild bitterness. Light bodied; average carbonation; short somewhat watery finish. Overall pretty so so, but the light touch of raspberries works pretty well.

12 oz. bottle at the Sun Room Bar at the Lake Hotel in Yellowstone. Pours a light, hazy, brownish orange color, with a small, fizzy, tan head. The aroma is a touch of rye spice under a general character of clover honey. There are notes of lemon and berries, with some cloves. Honey sweetness, with very little bitterness, but a nice rye spice that gives in a nice kick. Medium body, smooth feel with a light bite in the finish. This is hardly the best rye beer Ive had, and it is too sweet, but it works surprisingly well, in my opinion. Subtle, drinkable, and fun.

12 oz pour from tap into a shaker pint a bar in Bozeman. Clear, golden, light carbonation, light head. Fairly creamy medium body. Definitely sweet-- honey and a bit of a berry taste. A hint of malts and bitterness as well, but resoundingly a sweet beer. Probably best for a hot summer day for dessert.

APPEARANCE ? dark golden color, fairly turbid probably owing to the rye in the mash bill. NOSE ? light bit of malt comes through. Don?t smell the rye contribution, and does not smell overly sweet from malt or the honey. FLAVOR ? overall pretty bland. Nothing sticks out in terms of flavors. Very light malt flavor, I may get a bit of rye. I don?t feel much from the honey.

Pours a hazy golden copper color with a medium white head. The aroma is rye, some honey, earthy, caramel. The taste is the same but something seems off with it.

poisoneddwarf (2328) - Coeur d Alene, Idaho, USA - JAN 10, 2015
12 oz bottle. Aroma consists of honey, caramel malt bordering on cloying; vaguely vomity. Pours cloudy golden with a collapsing white head. Taste is mildly sweet with flavors of honey, light spicy rye. Reminds me of a flavored macro lager in its blandness. Not too impressed, but its drinkable. A side note here: I dont think this is brewed with raspberries like it says in the description here. The bottle makes no mention of it, theres no pink hue, no flavors of raspberry whatsoever. Maybe an earlier incarnation of this beer was brewed with raspberries?

Flat orange pour. Some malts, slightly bitter. Not awesome, but not terribly horrible either. Probably could have 4 or 5 sitting in the pub with the boys.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2014 Dusty aroma has some generic sweetness that you can kinda tell is honey but not raspberry. Little to no hop (or malt presence) just boring and lifeless. Nothing offensive, just not good.
