Slimbrundage (80) - USA - NOV 8, 2010
Hazy reddish amber. Tart raspberry aroma with hints of cinnamon and sweet vanilla. Loads of authentic raspberry flavor, medium bodied and refreshing, with just a faint whisper of nutmeg and a tart finish. This isn’t quite New Glarus Raspberry Tart but as this is my favorite, readily available fruit beer to date, well done and delicious.

obguthr (6588) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Raspberry nose, good strength. Cloudy garnet brown, medium pink head, good lacing. Tart, then bitter, never all that sweet. Not beery, and not exactly soda pop either. Most like raspberry soda pop that has been diluted with seltzer.

550 mL bottle form Whole Foods Market, Charlottesville, VA, opened 9/5/10. Pours a hazy dark red color with a large offwhite head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of raspberries with a floral note. The taste is tart raspberries, almost bitter, with some pale malts and green apple. Medium bodied. Nice and tart throughout.

Bottle. Pours a bordeau red color with a frothy pink head. Aroma is dominated by sweet and tart raspberries. Flavor is again the sweet and tart raspberries and taste of real raspberry jucie. It reminds me of old fashioned raspberry marmalade. The body is medium and slightly dry. Overall a solid raspberry ale, and the best of Samuel Smith fruit beers.

Eructoblaster (4329) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2010
Bottle - 550ml. Pours a dark, hazy ruby body with a good pink foamy head. Pleasant raspberry aroma with malty and yeasty hints. Fruity/hoppy taste is well balanced. it carries yeasty and subtle spicy notes. Ends with a decent sour/fruity finish. Well done.

2.5
bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2010
(500ml bottle) Pours a ruby red body with a medium pink head. Aroma of raspberries, earth, and grass. Flavor of artificial raspberry, light citrus, and wheat.

3.5
BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Bottle. Poured maroon red with a creamy pink head that had a thin layer lasting and good lace. The aroma found raspberry and a light chocolate backing. The flavor mainly had raspberry. Light to medium body and sweet.

3.1
jercraigs (10731) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2010
2010-09-26. Lightly hazy dark red body with a modest creamy pink-beige head. 3+ Flavour is quite sweet with a candyish feeling fruity raspberry character, bit jammy, tart raspberry in the finish. The underlying malt of the beer is largely overshadowed by the fruit. 6+ Aroma is similar, fruity raspberry has slight floral/perfume nuances to the fruit. 6+ Smooth medium bodied palate is almost syrupy. Not unpleasant but quite sweet and seems more appropriate to a fruit smoothie than a beer! Bottle from the LCBO

3.2
jredmond (8508) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Bottle split with Linh. It pours a murky brown body with slight purple reddish hue and lots of soda carbonation sticking to the side. Aroma is fresh raspberries - definitely not anything too over the top like other fruit beers. Thin, well carbonated mouthfeel is reserved notes of raspberry. Good Fruit beer.
