A fruit beer, but you would never know. I tasted a lot of Wheat (which is probably not correct).

Draught at the Markey Street pub. Nice fruity, raspberry nose. Salmon pink with lace. Fruity, wheaty flavor, a bit creamy. Crisp, not too sweet, refreshing though not so tasty. Dry, crackery malt finish. Decent.

Fruity-berry taste, very fruity. (one taster said it was like bad applejuice). There is a soury flavor. Very nice ruby grapefruit color

Excellent summer beer. Just the right amount of fruitiness with the wheat earthiness. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Looks just like grapefruit. Smells like ocean spray. Tastes like candy. No hops. I dont like raspberry and this has a lot of raspberry.

i am not sure how to explain ruby...she tastes good but sometimes she tastes flat...i have recently started having Rubinators (Ruby & Terminator Stout blend) because it gives Ruby just what she needs to be perfect...I have to say that i never go anywhere near a McMenamins without stopping in & grabbing a Ruby

I have to admit that there is nothing better on a hot, sunny day than drinking a tart, refreshing Ruby. Its never sweet, perfect balance of wheat and raspberry create a thirst quenching tart little beer worthy of drinking. Living in Los Angeles means I rarely get to enjoy this beer anymore, but whenever I go back to Portland, I always have to have it.
