Loaded with blackberry aroma and flavor. Darker red body with pink head. This was a refreshing sample. So if your in to the fruit beers I would strongly recomend this one. Smelled like you were picking blackbeerys in your garden. TreborWhip (393) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2011

This beer is a lightly hazy, deep amber color with ruby highlights when held up to the light. The head is simply a wispy pale tan head that is really just a ring around the edges. The aroma is sweet and fruity with perhaps a hint of honey aromatics to it, and a fruitiness that is definite, but somewhat non-descript.
The taste is quite sweet; it is almost sticky sweet, but not quite. Honey is definitely evident; there is that sort of astringent note, mixed with a floral type thing that I associate with honey. The fruitiness is quite pronounced, though I can’t quite put my finger on specifics; it is definitely not raspberry dominated. I am actually finding this a lot more easy drinking and enjoyable than I was expecting. Yes it is a simplistic, sweet fruit beer, but it is quite drinkable and even quaffable.
On tap at TCB - Pours a clear deep red, almost purple color with a small pink head. Has a light berry and honey aroma. Has a sweet berry and honey flavor. Heavy on the palate. Medium body. A decent fruit beer. BOLTZ7555 (3028) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Actually kind of enjoyed this one for its uniqueness. Ruby red/purple pour with a small ivory head that isn’t more than a ring. Aroma is ripe berries (can’t really tell what type) and moderate honey sweetness. Flavor is more definable blackberry...a bit syrupy but good.

Hazed cherry pour with off white head and lace. Aroma of blackberry and sweet malt. Light blackberry, sweet malt and no bitter. Medium bodied and fizzy. Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass at the brewpub.
The appearance was a hazy orange color with some red highlights here and there around the glass. Bar pour yielded no head.
The smell started off with a sweet red raspberry and then a light tart raspberry came in to balance and then after that a light sugary sweetness came in.
The taste was mainly sweet through the raspberries but after a while the sugary flavor came back.
On the palate, this one had a tart and sweet raspberry aftertaste that seemed pretty authentic and I would say that this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. The carbonation was decent for the style and for me.
Overall, decent raspberry ale I believe I could take to the dome again. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 8, 2011
Reddish pour, fluffy head. Aroma of sweet berries, honey, graham cracker and oranges. Flavor is sweet, honey, creamy, wheat...interesting at the very least.
