jgb9348 (5907) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 20, 2007
Deep dark purple coloured body with a lighter (still deep) purple bubbly head. Aroma of raspberries, malt, metal, some chocolate and event apples. Very Light-bodied; Didnt expect such a thin beer, and also one that shows so little character. The first taste is watery, second is lightly raspberry. Some lemons, malt and a super small amount of hops are barely noticeable in this one. Aftertaste shows sharp tartiness coupled with a bit of the raspberries and just about nothing else. Overall, a pretty damn bad beer - nothing worth trying again and really not a beer worth spending any money on. Save your money and buy a lambic or just hope for a better fruit beer. I sampled this 750 mL bottle purchased at Olivers beverage in Albany, New York on 18-February-2007.

CT V. Poured a dark brown with some reddish hues to it. Aroma was of raspberries and chocolate. Tasted pretty thin on the palate and a little watery feeling.

750ml bottle-pours a bubbly purple head and deep red color. Aroma is raspberry. Taste is raspberry, seltzer carbonation , malt. A Smirnoff on steroids. Nice, but is it beer?

750 courtesy of Doclock. Thanks! Pours red with a very bubbly head. Smell is exactly what the name is, rasberries. Sweet, but WAY to highly carbonated, just kind of tingles the mouth. But it does taste like rasberries.

Buffy raspberry hue and sudsy dirty pink-beige head.
Aroma of raspberries, sour cherries, and caramel-chocolate.
Moderately sweet with nice dry finishing acidity.
Some palatable texture early on, but dries and puckers in the finish.
This is developing very nicely.

pours deep red with a pretty good head. Good aroma - nicely fruity. After this the flavor lacks any real presence. Somewhat of a "fake" flavor overall. A bit of a miss for Sly Fox

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 21, 2007
750 ml bottle. Deep red with a large pink head. Aroma of tart raspberries. Flavor is also dominated by raspberries, accompanied by a slight yeasty mustiness. Medium body, lively carbonation. Dry finish with a touch of bitterness. Dont know if I would seek this out again (especially at the price), but I had no problem finishing this off by myself.

Bottle from Mr. Bendo to share with OhioDad at C-bus tasting 5... Definite raspberry aroma comes from a dark red body. Raspberry and malty flavor--but the raspberry dominates.
