Bottle, smells like tasty ripe raspberries, the taste is very off. Bad perfume, no finish, smell and dp my friends. mkel07 (5965) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2011
341ml bottle. From the bottle it is a muddy dark red colour with a soft light pink head. The foam settles to a good even layer. Raspberry in the aroma is to be expected but the aroma is fairly subdued and carries some sweetness. In the mouth there is some tartness and the finish is a bit medicinal and dry. There is only a faint flavour of raspberry and it is hard to detect much else. Probably the most disappointing of the beers I have tried from McAuslan, not up to their usual standard. It’s a shame because I really like raspberries and have had a few good rapsberry beers. JulienHuxley (5807) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2010
Bottle (latest release). Brown pour with some reddish reflections. Aroma is almsot all raspberry, with a little something grassy/herbal too. Taste is quite sweet, raspberry jam but with a dry herbal finish. The dry palate keeps it from being cloyingly sweet. Decent fruit beer, I was pleasantly surprised.

Le liquide a une couleur brune rougeâtre. Présence d’une bonne tête mousseuse. Les arômes sont frais et occupent un bon espace avec un mélange de pulpe de framboise et de houblons à la St-Ambroise. Au goût, très estival avec des fruits mi-sucrés, certainement des grains maltés et une amertume délicate. En bouche, le liquide a un corps moyen et démontre une texture crémeuse. Arrière-goût fruité et mi-amer. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours a ruby body with a thin pink head. Fresh raspberries, some light grain, hints of berries and light apple tones. Sweet with sugar notes, aroma is better than the flavor, comes across more thin and sweet with a light dry drying finish, mildly tart. Decent ale.

Sampled at Mondial 2006. Dark red body with a pink head. The aroma was definitely sour raspberries with tart candy smells. There was some fresh hay. The taste is a little tart with raspberries and some hay. A nice mild beer tat is dry and refreshing. Nothing close to a lambic, but somewhere in between that and the typical fruit beer.

(Bottle) Obtained via a trade with Goldorak. Pours a medium, frothy off-white head with a deep ruby-orange body. Head settles nicely along the sides of the glass. Nose of raspberry jam and seed. Flavour is nicely tart and raw, the raspberry flavour is sweet upfront than steadily changes to a tart seedy raspberry. Very enjoyable. This should be a winter beer.

12 oz bottle in a nice external container (probably why I bought it). Pours a doughy hazy dull reddish with a violet hint and thin diminsihing head. Aroma is initially very juicy, and has a slight character you get from NG RT, but it fades and you realize it isnt as full or intesne- has some other apple hints and some grassiness to it as well. Flavor starts off nice with a nice tart raspberry and very fruit juicy, then fades, gets a bit papery, yeasty, doughy, with some light cracker malts in the backbone, and finishes very dull and a slight citric acid finish whcih doesnt seem like it belongs.

Sampled draught at the Mondial de la Bière in Montreal, 2006. Dark purple-red in color, with little retained head and no lacing....nicely balanced sweet-sharp fruity nose, hints of biscuit, but very simple if not pedestrian overall....the body is tart and sour predominantly, rather thin and lacking in a real malt background but for a touch of dry cookie dough....becomes pretty jammy and syrupy towards the finish, and a nasty metallic edginess intrudes on the otherwise tolerable finish, becoming really harsh as the sample warms to cellar temp....I had trouble finishing this, what a bummer from this fine brewery. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 8, 2009
Bottle. White head and lacing. Dark red-copper. Dark aroma of dried raspberries. Tastes like beer and raspberries. Lots of sourness sinks into the gums. More fruit taste than extract and syrup.
