Cloudy orange body. Aroma is loaded with raspberry with lesser notes of hops and bread. Sweet fruity raspberry finish. Probably one of the better fruit beers Ive had. Avoids the cherry soda like flavors of some of the Sam Adams brews.

You know, Ive never been much of a fruit beer fan so I already had low expectations. For a fruit beer this guy was pretty decent, mainly because the fruit flavor wasnt very strong. I could still taste the beer beneath it which was a pretty decent beer.

Pours a one finger white head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Clear pink/amber color. Very light carbonation and light bodied. Raspberry nose. Starts sweet, clean raspberry flavor, some tartness at finish, good summer beer. $4.25 for a 22oz bottle from the brewery in Troutdale, Or.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 8, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. hazy orange color with thin white head that laced the glass. Aroma was buttery caramel. I didnt smell any raspberry, but there was a light raspberry flavor with a delicious buttery caramel flavor that followed the aroma. Above average amount of carbonation.

JorisPPattyn (9672) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 19, 2006
Draught at the Six Arms, Seattle Rosy pink as watermelon juice, with no trace of a head, muddy. If I inhale VERY deeply and long, I can get indeed some raspberry aroma. But is says "packed full of 60 pounds or raspberries...". Yes, on - the citys water reservoir? Discreet fruit taste, as a bit of raspberry jam dissolved in a big galss of tap water (well, then maybe not as Seattle tap water contains lethal doses of chlorine). Refreshing it is, no doubt. OK, its light. Very poor fruit beer.

dwedin (249) - Happy Valley, Oregon, USA - MAR 9, 2006
pale golden color with a touch of pink. white head. light ras aroma. less ras flavor but seems to add sweetness that balances with just a touch of bitterness. medium body but a little watery at the same time. maybe a fruit beer that a non-fruit beer person might like, a little. hot sunny rafting beer.

omhper (24092) - Tyres, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2006
Draught at White Eagle, Portland. Hazy reddish amber. Light raspberry aroma. Medium sweet with clean mouthfeel and light body. A decent, drinkable fruity beer that however does not have a lot of interesting things going on.

Not terrible, but refreshing, a good spring time beer. At least it is balanced and you can taste the fruit, and it is really showcased in this one. Just a little crisp and tart in the finish.
