Tap @ the brewery. A fairly light touch with the berries keeps this from being just about the fruit but the underlying ale doesn’t bring much to the table. Narnad (1521) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Pours a very hazy, very light yellow color. Looks very watery. Aroma has a strong, freshly ripened raspberry nose with almost nothing else coming through. Flavor has a very natural raspberry fruitiness with a light 2-row malt touch. Body is very light, slightly fizzy. Overall the brew is what you would expect. Lots of fruit flavor, not a lot of anything else. This beer succeeded in not presenting the drinker with a fake fruity flavor but there really isn’t anything else there to make you want to drink it. I wish there were just a touch more of some malt presence to make it a bit more "beery". Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 10, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy pinkish correct with a small white ring. Aroma of tart raspberries, bread and light malts. Taste is a mild tart raspberry with some bready malts flavors and a very mild hop flavor on the finish. Not a fan of this beer but I can appreciate that it’s made with real fruit instead of extract. pictoman (1129) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 3, 2012
Poured from 341mL bottle. Clear golden amber with minimal white head. Very dominant raspberry aroma. Mild malty taste with raspberry overlay. Very light, not much substance. A little watery overall. reebtogi (6277) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 9, 2012
341ml bottle pours a pink tinged golden color with a small white head that leaves a few specks of lacing on the glass. Aroma is raspberries with some light malts and hops. Taste is raspberry sweetness with a little tartness some light malt sweetness and a trace of hop bitterness. An acceptable fruit beer, but nothing to brag about.
Rhenk (3) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 18, 2012 does not count
smells of strong raspberry and weakly wheat, pours gold with a pinkish hue. The head is small. The raspberry flavor is stronger and somewhat sweeter than expected. Clean smooth finish with a little tartness. Interesting overall but to sweet for my liking SHIG (4962) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Bottle thanks to Father-in-law: Poured a clear amber with carbonated head. Aroma is grain. Taste is light raspberry with lots of grain. sulawang (1161) - - AUG 6, 2011
pours light-orange, minor head, medium carbonation. 1st sip, way too light and thin-bodied for my liking. Lacking in depth and flavour to hold it together, and the raspberry flavour doesn’t add much in terms of character. Easily forgettable. gramity (1668) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 11, 2011
Poured into a flute. The beer poured a red-tinted pale golden. The head that developed was extremely thin (about 1 cm - if that) considering that this beer is highly effervescent and very busy in the glass.
The aroma is sharp raspberry that fades quick into a boring grainy beer.
This taste is weak and I am not just talking about the raspberry component. The underlying beer is weak and watery. The malts are relatively flavorless. The raspberry is present at the beginning and lighter in nature. It works fairly well with the beer.
The mouthfeel is thin and watery with high carbonation.
Overall - this beer was just kind of boring. Merely "having raspberry" in a beer isn’t enough. Wild Rose needs to do something to makes this interesting.
Also - why the fuck did they actually but a "W" before "Raspberry" in the title. I’m not a fan. I still won’t be a fan of that when I get around to drinking their "Wred Wheat" Ale. Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 5, 2011
Light browny gold with hints of red I guess you could call it a peach color, no cap was produced at all but the beer does appear to be very fizzy. Aroma is powdery and sharp, with sour raspberry and wet hay. I’m already sick/bored of this beer and I haven’t even taken a sip yet. The brew seems watered down and has a thin dry flavor. A powdery sour candy with rose water and stinging carbonation. Malts are light and flavorless. Beer isn’t horrid its just not a good one to think about, just slam it on a hot day at the lake and you’ll be fine.
