Bottle. Pink/orange, bubbles-carbonation - Looks like a cooler (?!) big fade head. light raspberry/yeast nose. Taste like a cooler/water. The apple version is better.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2005 aroma of sour raspberries. Pours a very nice reddish-orange with a thin white head. As is the case with most fruit beers, this is mostly one-dimentional. Flavour is dominated by sour raspberry. Finish is quite tart. It is what it is.

Hazy golden ale with a lightly pinkish thin head. Smells like raspberry purée with light acidic notes. Light malt and wheat tatse with little acidiic points and tart raspberries. Sweet and thinnish, but enjoyable. enjoyed the fresh fruits. Tasted at Institut’s gambrinale, Outaouais, Oct. 28 2005.

On tap at Beer Bistro, Toronto. Decen looking hazy orange color, off white head, fading into a ring around the glass. Appropriate raspberry aroma. Flavor is predominantly raspberry as well with a bit of yeast, not carried across well by the overcarbonated and watery palate. It was okay but I wouldn’t recommend it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very light watery pinkish yellow. The head is white, small and mostly diminishing. Sweet raspberry jam nose. Simple in mouth, most of the flavors coming from the sourdough-like yeast strain. Tries to develop tartness, but in fact becomes rather watery in the finish, a dulled drying out yeasty leafiness fighting off the fruits. Quite a welter weight on the palate, thin with soda-like carbonation. I guess some people may enjoy this, but I don’t catch much hedonistic potential.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy pale reddish hue, with a soft rocky white head, but falling quickly, with a concentred raspberry purée aroma, with the characteristic éphémère yeast, with a hint of berry and bubblegum, follows through on a medium-bodied raspberry fruity palate, with a yeasty, good acidity, big fruity flavor of raspberries, even sort of a milky note, with a tart an wheaty character, quite dry with a fruity tartness finish.

Tried it in bottle. Nice taste. A glass is needed to smell the raspberries. Directly from the bottle isn’t enough. The green apple one tastes more like the fruit (50% beer, 50% apple). This one is more like 75% beer and 25% fruit.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Poured a soft pink color ale with a huge bubbly white head with average retention. Aroma of raspberry is clearly dominant. Taste is overpowered with raspberry syrup, which is not something I generally look for in beers. Seems to me like they have mixed the Blanche de Chambly minus the coriander with raspberry syrup. Like the Cassis one, I find this really lack craftsmanship and resemble more like a beer/fruit soda from Belgium (i.e. Chapeau…) then some highly crafted fruit beer (i.e. New Glarus, Kriek de Ranke).
