bth122 (1530) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Bottle from beernutz. Poured a clear golden color, small head that fizzled out. Aroma is somewhat reminiscent of raspberry, maybe mild medicine, orange peel. Medium sweetness. Slight sour. Light body. For the folks that need gluten free, I hope their are better beers out there than this one. Kind of refreshing taste, but tastes a little off.

Bottle at Amber Rose. Not bad at all for a gluten free fruit beer. Nice fruity raspberry notes. Light and refreshing.

obguthr (5917) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Weird aroma of chemicals, koji, and honey. Raspberry is present but understated. Clear orange and headless. Raspberry flavor. Very chemical throughout but most prominent on the back end. A bit like new plastic. All natural ingredients, all artificial flavor.

12Oz pour at wedding. Sorry my friend can only drink this. Hazy red, sweet raspberry and odd sour sweet funk. Not horrible but is missing a lot. Odd off funk.

TheBeerGod (6104) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Bottle. Rusted gold with a short, foamy white head. Aroma is berry jam with cheap, sweet wine notes. Taste is sorghum, berry notes, candied fruit and raspberry jam. Body is light and fizzy. Ends with more berry notes, berry jam, candied fruit and sorghum. I just dont care much for the sorghum taste.

hoffrobert (178) - Indiana, USA - JUL 21, 2012
12 oz bottle bottle pours dark ruby red. The advertised raspberry puree overpowers the beer. A bit of citrus and dried fruit taste. Surprisingly dry.

AdamGott (386) - Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA - MAY 25, 2012
pours a really clear and light golden color with a strong red tinge - very effervescent with tight white head - aroma of raspberry - tastes more like a raspberry malted beverage than a beer - lots of raspberry and little else
