Pours cloudy purple color with pinkish head. Aroma of raspberries. Sweet raspberry flavor with some tartness. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. My favorite of their fruit beeers.

Proud and not ashamed, I love this beer. Not all the time, and not for every occasion, but maybe once every month this is ok to pull out and put a few down. The pour is rasberry candy red, small pinkish head. The flavor and mouthfeel is a strong rasberry flavor, nothing fake or vitamin like, full flavored rasberries. This beer is to drinkable, but also an ambiance brew, has to be the right time, but overall solid stuff if you like the style.

(550ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) opaque bright red, nice film of white bubbles. Nose of raspberry syrup, salt/olive, odd mustiness. Taste of raspberry syrup, sugary sweet, cracker and brown sugar. Pretty nice fruit beer overall.

Pours cloudy ruby, full pale pink head. Maintains moderate lacing. Aroma is slightly malty but bursting with raspberry. Sweet as all get out, hint of sour towards the finish. Really tasty stuff, like the cherry one I could drink this on a hot summer day all day long.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2010
Bottle- Deep hazed ruby with an off pink head of fizz. Immediate blast of raspberry leads to spices and floral notes in the nose. Taste of sweet raspberry jam, spices, some bittering hops and grassy notes. Wow, this is sweet. Sticky finish. Overly sweet for a session but might do well as an after dinner treat.

Bottle shared by bu11zeye. Pours a nice ruby red with a pinkish white head. Aroma is heavy on the raspberries, with hints of pie spices. Taste is sweet raspberries and jam. Very clean, and one to pour after dinner.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a reddish-purple color with an off-white head. The aroma is strong raspberry with not much else. The flavor is identical to the aroma. Other than a lot of raspberry, I dont get anything else. The beer is very sweet and tastes more like raspberry juice than any kind of a beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
