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.

Bottle at Craigs. Pale amber, pinkish hue. Aromas of fruit and caramel. Taste does have a hint of raspberry to it, but not a lot. Mostly caramel. OK.

Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is light malt and berries. Taste is grain with lots of raspberry, and low bitterness. Low-medium body. Alright.

Smells of raspberry and tastes like raspberry too! Slightly too fizzy, but nicely refreshing. (K)

Light honey colored, cloudy, looks like a weiss beer. Aroma is raspberry, sweet, hints of yeast. Flavor is pretty sweet. Nice summer beer, one that a think alot of none beer drinkers would enjoy.

Hazy gold color with a light creamy head . The aroma is very light, almost non-existant, a touch of raspberry, but it could be discounted easily. Finishes lightly malty and surprisingly good. Almost no flavor here. A run of the mill cookie cutter franchise micro, eh.

Mild aroma, and the flavor comes through the tasting with a one-second delay. Drinkable, gentle, with a seltzer-water like quick finish. Hazy pink grapefruit juice appearance. (on tap at Ringlers/Crystal Ballroom, Portland)

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2005 Underrated beer! Ive had this a number of times and each time I am respecting it more and more. A pinkish colour with a very fruity taste. Not too heavy, yet not horribly light. An all around delicious treat.
