Bottle. Blind bought at Whole Foods in Darien CT. Smells okay, lightly fruity. No head. Looks like a wine cooler. Almost no taste. Would not buy this again.

reebtogi (6350) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 15, 2013
355ml bottle pours a pinkish golden color with a vigorously poured finger of white head that dissipated very quickly leaving a couple of specks of lacing. Aroma is raspberry and some kind of undetermined funk. Taste is a raspberry tartness with some fruity sweetness. Light bodied with mild carbonation. A decent GF brew, but nothing really notable here.

reggiedunlop (3726) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2013
pours an odd clear amber/reddish orange color with a thin white head. aroma has boozy plastic and raspberry. flavor is just bland raspberry with a bit of tartness. mouthfeel is light and the finish is dry with faint raspberry. not very good at all.

Not the worst raspberry ale i’ve tasted, bottle in cleveland, very light with hints of oranges as well but easy to drink

Bottle share by Jared, light pink pour with minimal head. Smells like raspberry with some rubbing alcohol. Taste is very much the same, blah. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[US West Coast Trip 2013] första gluten fria ölen tror jag. Aroman är ju väldigt fruktig, söt. Smaken är, om aroman var lite udda så var smaken konstig. Fruktig i alla fall.

jrodooo5 (1708) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Pours thin gold without head or lacing. Aroma has a hint of fruitiness. The taste is thin with some of the raspberry flavor standing out. It’s pretty light and watery but definitely one of the better gluten free beers I’ve come across.

DuffMan (10612) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 12, 2013
Bottle. Medium orange, and I can convince myself there is a subtle pinkish hue to be seen. Aroma is rather pleasant, genuine raspberry, light grains. The palate begins with a raspberry flavour, but quickly turns medicinal and phenolic, band aids and tannic leather. Blech.

2.4
queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle. Light sugary berry aroma. Clear pink tinged apricot with a minimal head. Dry raspberry and light sorghum flavor. I know a lot of people really hate it, but I’m one of those freaks who likes sorghum. Light body, moderate carbonation. If I was gluten intolerant, this would do in a pinch.

2.8
TaktikMTL (7921) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2013
Bouteille de 12 oz achetée chez Bark’s Beer Cave (Plattsburgh, NY). Arôme: Légère odeur de framboises et de céréales. Apparence: La couleur est blonde-rosée avec une très faible densité de bulle. Saveur: Légère odeur de céréales et de framboises avec une pointe de caramel. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps et la texture sont mince. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de framboises en arrière goût. (Rating #4718)
