UPDATED: DEC 22, 2006 A true girlie drink. Poured a ruby red and murky color. The head was decent and the lacing ok, but not spectacular. The aroma was all raspberries. The flavor all raspberries over an American wheat type base: some funkiness to it, but heck, who cares when you have this much raspberry in it. Way too fruity. Not overly sweet, but, not my cup of tea (or mug of beer). I’m ok w/ some fruit beers when done well, but not this one. Re-rate, 12/06: Watered down raspberry flavors, soda-like, I stand by my initial comments. A not so good beer, maybe lower than my initial rating.

Deep red-purple colour with a bright red head. Great blackberry aroma, sweet fruity with a touch of peppery character in the back. Flavour is also quite fruity with peppery/wheaty notes. Lacks a lot of the acidity that I feel a beer like this needs to brighten up the flavour. Not bad, but could be better. bfeldmann (1050) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 28, 2006
Ugh 2nd nasty one in a night. Poured a cloudy redish color with okay head. Aroma was only raspberries. Flavor was the same with some nasty wheat flavor very very watered down. undrinkable, second pour in a night unheard of. kmweaver (3208) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAR 16, 2007
750mL bottle, courtesy of argo0. Thanks, Aaron! What we have here is an energetic brew (coming out through the cork!). Dark ruby color; off-white head with light retention. Strong, tart raspberry aroma: one-dimensional. Medium, watery mouthfeel: red raspberries, white pepper and water. Lacking much density. Medium, syrupy fruit finish. And water.

Bottle (650ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow and jerc, my bottle via trade with adrian910ss. Cloudy ruby with brownish highlights, large dimishing beige head. Slightly pepper/bitter sweet raspberry aroma, hint of off-dry white wine - very sweet yet dry. Taste is of bitter raspberry jam, mild alcohol, some yeast, bitter quick finish. Watery body, decently carbonated, oddly astringent - sweet yet leaves a harsh aftertaste (not too much of one). No thanks.

750ml bottle purchased from New Beer in NYC. Cork had some crust around the brim of the bottle.. which was worrisome. I wasn’t about to return it, popped open fine and beer was still bubbly. Fair play. Odd brew, smelt very nice - rich raspberries. Mouth was pretty bad, too juicy. Not much going on besides offensive rasp flavor. Very problematic, not good. jredmond (8645) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 11, 2009
Bottle split with Pwn3d. Pours dark red - blood body. Aroma of raspberries. Taste is same, with some ashtray aftertaste. Kind of unpleasant. footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - NOV 18, 2006
I got 3 of these in trades. Their brews can be hit or miss and this one is a miss. The fruit is overwhelmed but a funky sourness or something. I gave two bottles of this away. Dopplebock1538 (71) - Sanatoga, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2006
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 (1836) - 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.
