On tap at brewery, pours reddish brown with a medium pink head. Aroma is all raspberry with some earthy undertones. Taste is tart and sweet. Light bodied, smooth, good carbonation and a puckering finish. Excellent. Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Fantastic representation of the style. Not sure if I’ll ever have one that tops it. Tart, sweet, but not too much either way. Raspberry flavor and aroma is phenomenal. Deep purple pour with a rose colored head. Drake (13952) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 4, 2015
New England Bucket List Trip #231. Keg at the brewpub. Pours a hazy dark red with a large creamy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of vibrant raspberries, pale malt, Concord grapes. The taste is tart raspberry, mild pale malt and chocolate. Medium bodied, lingering tartness. triggerjerk275 (1) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2014 does not count
Nice light purple tint to to the head which quickly disappeared. Nice raspberry aroma with a faint nailpolish ester. Raspberry jam flavors a little cloying but enough tartness to clean your pallete.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a deep purpley amber with some thin white head. Nose has a lot of berry, jammy, floral, but mostly just a big bouquet of fruit. Flavor is the same, big berry, raspberry, jammy, some candy sugar. Finishes a little sweet. Not as good as their kriek, but nice. A bit too sweet. tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Growler pour courtesy of Bill. Pours a deep maroon with no head. Fresh raspberry jam. Lightly tart. Really tasty and drinkable. I was shocked to hear it was 6.5%, it is certainly not noticeable. One of the better fruit beers I’ve had. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 25, 2014
draft at Selin’s Grove. beautiful raspberry colored pour. fuller bodied. big sweet raspberry aroma & flavor. little too sweet, but deftly made alexsdad06 (10482) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Growler sample (notes). Pours a slightly hazy reddish/purple/amber color with a small pinkish head. The aroma was mainly big fresh raspberries; very welcoming. The flavor had a sweet, yet tart raspberry beginning, middle and end. The flavor was good, but seemed like the raspberries were from concentrate, instead of fresh at times. Still pretty good.

Growler. Deep reddish purple color, good retention, solid lacing. Aroma of intense fruit, subtle almonds. Taste is sweet and sour berry. Tasty.
