Expensive 16oz can pours with a slightly hazy copper body that has thin gold edges and supports a light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up lots of sweet sugary berry notes, some berry skin like tartness and then mild soft sweet smelling malts. The taste delivers sweet malts and sweet berries rimmed thinly by berry fruit tartness. To midway it gets into more sugary malts and a bit of sweet doughy notes as well as berry juice that has a tart edge to it. Decent but on the sweet side and the juicy berry notes over shadow the beer notes. scooterbub (1067) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - AUG 29, 2016
19.2 ounce. Pours a orange-amber with a thin beige head. Taste is of raspberry, yeast and grain. Similar aroma. Has a smooth body with a warming tart finish. Overall, pretty good. Bill Becker (1370) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - AUG 2, 2016
19.2 ounce can, cost -$6
Honey coloured, hazy beer with a quickly dissipating head of foam. No lacing.
Smells of raspberries, candi sugar, hints of the English malt. Not much Belgian aboot it other than that candi sugar.
Sweet/tart raspberry notes that are so balanced. Candi sugar puts it more on the sweet side but just. This was canned March 10th so things may have changed over the near 5 months.
Fairly light bodied with medium carbonation.
It’s no Raspberry Tart but it is fine in its own right. djd07 (15342) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy pink with medium off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong berry and floral. Thin, nice berry, yeast, light tartness, good. User134089 (1644) - - MAY 22, 2016
Type: 19.2-oz. can
Glass: Clear 16.5-oz. Belgian ale glass
From: Jubilation Wine & Spirits in Albuquerque N.M.
Purchased: May 7, 2016
Consumed: May 18, 2016
Misc.: Canned on March 10, 2016; Reviewed as a Belgian Pale Ale (not a sour or fruit beer)
Picked this up on a work trip to Albuquerque on May 7, 2016 at Jubilation Wine & Spirits, a fantastic beer/wine/liquor store near the UNM campus. I’m a sucker for raspberry beers and the few beers I’ve tried from Upslope have been good. (Check that, I’ve only had one and reviewed it as a 3.75). Either way, I’m all in with it, even the 19.2-oz-sized can.
Poured an amber, copper, hazy color with 1-to-2 fingers of fizzy, off-white head, which dissipated rather quickly. Could see lots of bubbles coming up along the sides of the glass. Poor wet foamy lacing. Minimal retention. (Sight - 3.00)
Smelled artificial raspberry, grassy notes, floral hops, pure raspberries, black raspberry milkshake, hints of cherries and candied sugar. Got better with each sniff. (Smell - 3.75)
First thought on the taste was wow. Much sweeter than I anticipated. Sugary artificial raspberries, raspberry milkshake, raspberry candy, touch of Belgian spiciness, bubblegum, Belgian yeast and grassy hops. (Taste - 3.75)
Light body. Thin-to-oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, sugary, fruity finish. (Feel - 4.00)
This wasn’t a bad beer at all and definitely a different take on raspberry beers. Not sure I could drink a lot of these in a row and his 19.2-ounce can is plenty, but not bad. (Overall - 3.75)

19.5 oz. can. Canned on 03.10.16. Pours a minimal, short lived, off white head, over a hazy copper amber (SRM 13) body......nose is raspberry, light malts, with light bread, biscuit, mild spices.......taste is moderately sweet, with raspberry, light banana/bubblegum, finishing dry, with no hop bitterness.........mouth feel, light of medium body, mild alcohol, high carbonation with mild acid. While this is a pleasant beer, the yeast, malt and hop contributions are quite light. It is almost a complex soda pop, rather than a Fruit Beer. Perhaps a higher fermentation temperature with the same recipe would correct. BJCP 6/2/11/4/6 onceblind (10327) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Hazy raspberry / Amber hue wth a thin off ivory/white head. Fleshy raspberry nose with a little bit of pale Belgian malt dustiness. Semisweet fleshy raspberry flavor right up front, some Belgian dusty biscuity malt and a dry semi dusty finish. zoucrew102 (2054) - - APR 17, 2016
Imperial pint can. Spicy Belgian yeast aroma with sweet raspberry notes as well as some banana and clove. Pours cloudy reddish amber colored with a thin white head that has poor retention and minimal lacing. Starts with spicy Belgian yeast flavors with some banana. Finishes quite smooth with a good amount of raspberry sweetness as well as just a touch of clove. This a very nice hybrid of a fruit and a Belgian pale with a refreshing summery vibe.

On tap at Hops and Pie poured a cloudy pink with a small lingering ivory head. Aromas of bread, raspberry and yeast. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of breaf, raspberry and light yeast with a smooth dry lingering raspberry finish. Danyel (1606) - Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2015
Tap at Upslope. Pours bright clear red with minimal pink tinted head. Aroma is extreme raspberry, lots of fruit, Belgian yeast hint. Taste is fruit forward, with a crispness to it, light to medium bodied, easy. Overall, very enjoyable.
