Thanks Dr.Jay, surprisingly good. Think raspberry black tea, not raspberry jelly. Dark raspberry colour with pink head, bit of lace. Aroma, well raspberry. There is bitterness behind the taste, medium mouthfeel. jgb9348 (6583) - 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; Didn’t 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 Oliver’s beverage in Albany, New York on 18-February-2007. bgburdman9 (861) - columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 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. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - FEB 11, 2007
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? jgd0608 (187) - Zeeland, Michigan, USA - FEB 6, 2007
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.beerBB (132) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2007
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. Don’t know if I would seek this out again (especially at the price), but I had no problem finishing this off by myself. thebaldwizard (1365) - Ohio, USA - JAN 17, 2007
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.
