beerbill (3616) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 12, 2008
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with hopscotch. Pours a hazy gold with a moderate-large white head that quickly dissipated and left no foam on the glass. Pleasant and bright aroma of raspberries along with a bit of white sugar. The fragrance is both sweet and tart, but is not candy-like. The flavor is mild malt with raspberries. Spritzy mouthfeel. This is a very nice refreshing ale.

Carbonated golden ale that reminds me of a wine cooler. Pretty light with a nice rasberry flavor. Only 3.9% ABV which was a bit disappointing. All in all a decent fruit beer.

StFun (567) - Indiana, USA - SEP 13, 2008
This one is ranked a little low, I think. I’n not a big fan of fruit beers, but this one was pretty good. Nice berry aroma, raspberry flavor. A little tart and dry on the finish, kind of dries out the mouth. Not a whole lot going on, but what is going on is good.

beezz86 (68) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Bottle. Poured a golden color with a slight red tint. It was a clear liquid with a frothy white head. The beer had a light body, thin texture, very lively carbonation, and a long finish. The aroma and flavor were both raspberry with the aroma being stronger than the actual taste. Overall, I like this raspberry beer. I did think it was a bit heavily carbonated, but I would definately drink this again.

hopscotch (11014) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2008
Bottle... Vero Beach/O-Town Throwdown Part 8 Preliminary... Clear golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Fruity and not-all-that-artificial smelling raspberry essence. Light to medium-bodied with a course, dry mouthfeel and Champagne-like mouthfeel. The flavor starts off fruity and sweet, then quickly turns astringent and dry. Not bad. Not all that good, but not bad. Thanks to growler for sharing this bottle!

EithCubes (5772) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Bottle, with a low fill-line, I might add. Cloying razz nose with some golden malt. Dark golden pour with a soapy beige head. Very crisp, lightly bitter, only lightly sweet, miles away from the cloying crap that most put out as summer fruit beers. Raspberries are very, very faint, adding only an accent. I’m pretty pleased with the restraint. Medium body has firm malt and a bit of grain, light citrus wisps and a bit of earth. Decent, very refreshing summer go, another good product from this brewer.

12 oz bottle

This is your typical summer fruit beer. Not complex at all it takes about five seconds to understand. What it lacks in complexity is not made up in quality either though this is a step above your average macro ’fruit’ beer. If you are ticking give this a try. Otherwise I would suggest looking at some of the other available options.

Aroma / Appearance - The golden transparent body had the same look as every other wheat beer. A tiny white head sat above to attempt to draw interest. The scent of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich prepared on Wonderbread greets the nose. Don’t go looking for more - it isn’t there.

Flavor / Palate - Lemon lime soda with a raspberry twist flows quickly across the tongue and throat. Fading fast it takes another sip to remind the palate what is going on. For a summer fruit beer it isn’t bad but this firmly straddles the line of mediocrity.

DocLock (10478) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2008
Pours hazy gold with white head. Nose is fresh raspberries, earthy, hop, and malt notes. Tastes of citrus, hops, earthy malt, and strong freshly picked raspberries. Fizzy palate that waters out late.

Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2008
Bottle sampled from sheer curiosity at Columbus tasting: When it poured the color of yellow that it did, I knew right away what it tasted like. I would like to say that regardless of whether this is actually made with REAL raspberry, it does not SMELL like extract. It did have a sweetness of fresh fruit. Unfortunately, though, the flavor fell flat for me and it was an odd yeastiness with some raspberry mixed in. Admittedly not my type, but not very good regardless.
