2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Apex, pours a vibrant red with a small pinkish head. Aroma of cherries, raspberries and other berries – lots of residual sugars. Flavour brings out muted unsweetened cherries and raspberries, and some weird off-notes that detract a lot. Dry and fruity, but this one is all over the place – not sure what the goal was here. Not too enjoyable.

Tap at OBF. Pours ruddy with a creamy tan head. Slightly sour raspberry aroma. Med body. Flavor is slightly sour fresh raspberry. It’s tart, just a little sour. There’s citrus. There’s an earthy suggestion. Quite complex. Very tasty.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Red pour with a pink foamy head. Slightly sour and quite fruity, some carbonation zing. Start of the taste is better than the finish. Still, fun to try - thanks Tom!

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, pink, yes, pink pour with thin pink-white head, aroma brought notes of sweet raspberry and orange, slight floral notes but really dominated by the fruity notes, smelled like raspberry cocktail drink. Taste was a bit better some tart raspberry and orange notes go into a slight vanilla and biscuit middle, slight grassy note but finished very sweet.

Sample at the brewery. Comes light red with a small pink head. Aroma of berries. Taste is raspberries and other fruits. Somewhat sour. Refreshing but not much more.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Clips of Faith. Bright orange-red body. Thin, oily head. Raspberry tones, some faint funky yeast notes underneath. The rose hips give it a sort of artificial feel, but it is still an enjoyable beverage. An interesting one-off, but not exactly one I’d seek out again.

RBSG 2013. Thanks to Gregg for sharing this one. Raspberry and light citrus in the aroma and flavor. I do not pick up the rose hips and the hops are very light.
