Poured from 550mL bottle. Medium dark red with pink head. Aroma of actual fresh raspberries, no concentrate noticeable whatsoever like most other raspberry beers. Taste does seem to have a little extra sweetness added, but it still gets that sweet and tart nature of raspberries to show through. Medium body, finish a little on the shorter end of things. Definitely one of my top fruit beers.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2009
Bottle, from Capone’s (Norristown, PA). Pours ruby amber, capped with a modest sized pink head. Sweet-tart raspberry candy aroma up front, with some caramel and yeast in the background. Flavor initially exhibits a nice natural raspberry flavor that is nicely balanced with citrus and caramel, unfortunately it becomes far too sweet and nearly cloying towards the finish. Sweet-tart raspberry lingers on the palate. Medium bodied and very drinkable; this had a lot of potential but wound up too sweet for my palate.

Nsanders (1163) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 14, 2011
Deep red, with a pink foamy head. Aroma of raspberry and alcohol. Not too sweet, good dried deep raspberry flavor. Better than expected on account of not being overly sweet. Light maltiness with a bit of a floral finish. The light body of this beer makes it seem like it would be a good summer drink.

550ml bottle

I tried this beer on June 7, 2010 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a transparent dark red colour with a 1" pinkisk-white cap that quickly dissipated. The aroma was fresh raspberries, sweet malt, and some yeasty hints. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was raspberries, sticky sweet, some tartness, some nutty malt, and a a bitter finish.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear, dark ruby red, with a fizzy pink head. Aromas of sweet raspberry and tart fruit, perhaps some citrus? The flavor is tart berry and cherry, mildly sour but not nearly puckering. Nice balancing sweetness. Lively, somewhat effervescent, and refreshing. Pretty good for a fruit beer. [711]

The_Bish (1123) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2013
Smells lovely, just not like beer. My favourite smell is probably thyme, but I wouldn’t want beer to smell like thyme (I think). So should I score this highly because it smells nice just not of beer? I don’t actually care what you think, I’ve gone for 8. Tastes of.... raspberries. Go figure.

Sammer (1119) - Plano, Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2010
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.

(550ml bottle). Deep red raspberry complexion with pink head and good lacing. Sweet and tart medicinal fruit flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
