Reads well. Tastes like soda. I can’t figure out why they can’t keep it in stock. I think the brewmaster is on the right track. But this beer needs some fine tuning before it goes to market. jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2006
Bottle that cost too much. Do you liek diet blackraspberry soda? if you do then this one is for you. Decent aroma but not strong blackberry smell or taste. Too bland and soada feel. Feels like it’s missing something(alot of somethings) to make it right. Disappointing comming from this brewer. beerBB (132) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2007
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 scoobyluv (511) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 11, 2007

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2007 This is no light-hearted fruit beer. The black rasberry is over-the-top in your face and dominates this beer from aroma to tail end. Tart with a sharp short hop bite at the end of the swallow. The middle is sweet and sour at the same time. It pours an opaque purple with a small head and little carbonation fanfare. Not my cup of...um...juice.

dark red, wispy pink head, overly tart yet sweet raspberry aroma, huge carbonated raspberry flavor, light tartness, not much complexity
Aroma: 5/10; Appearance: 6/10; Flavor: 5/10; Palate: 6/10; Overall: 10/20
Reddish-purple color with a light pink head. Aroma is solid raspberries. Flavor is raspberry with some cheap bready soda. Not really good - maybe Mr. Carey can make a trip from Wisconsin to PA to show the IPA varietal King how to make some Framboise-ish beer. GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - JAN 16, 2008
Man, this beer was all over the place. I gave it high marks for the appearance because man, it just looked stunning in my glass. Absolutely beautiful I thought. A rich, purpleish/red color, with a nice light pink foamy head, the kind that you’d get from pouring a 7-Up. Aroma is raspberries. Yep, just raspberries. Mouthfeel had that mineral water/club soda kind of feel to it. Flavors had that extract, fake raspberry taste to it. Almost saccharine like. Kinda like a watered down framboise mixed with a wheat beer. Not the best. But looks damned good in my glass. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - JAN 20, 2008
This fruit beer pours a raspberry red color form a 750 ml bottle. Medium sized pinkish foamy head. Aroma is raspberries and sweet. A medium to light bodied fruit beer. The malts are fruity and wheaty. The hops are earthy. This beer is very sweet and artificial tasting. There is a pronounced seltzer and soapy taste. The raspberry flavors are very sweet and seem a little artificial tasting, more like they used raspberry syrup than real fruit. Did not really enjoy this one. Mouthfeel is a full. Finish is crisp. Aftertaste is sweet. zapprentice (316) - East Setauket, New York, USA - MAR 3, 2009
What a weird beer. The aroma was incredible fruity aroma, but then it tasted like junk. Got my hopes up so high for a random selection, then killed those hopes like a NYC school
