This is a good raspberry beer, that may even be able to be kicked up a notch if a similar yeast like Erdinger was used... It has a very dry finish, not unpleasant, and it goes great with a salad. One of my favorites from the brewery. I had some on tap at Original Joes in Kensington during Stampede, and it went down quickly while I was sitting on their patio under the late afternoon sun...

On-tap at the brewery. Light head on reddish pink colour. Some lace.Fruitish aroma and decent raspberry taste, but a definite fruit beer not very rich. No lambic here.

Bottle. Light see through orange, thin white head that dies quickly. Faint hint of raspberry in the aroma. Light mouthfeel, little carbonation. Horrid aftertaste. Maybe the worst beer i have ever tried.

Pale amber with a hint of pink. Quite carbonated which contributes to the feeling that this is a light beer. Aromas of leafy fresh raspberries and some sweet malt. Fresh raspberry tartness overlying caramel and pale malts. Not too sweet. Lighter mouthfeel. A fruit beer that achieves what it sets out to be, rather than becoming a cooler in beer’s clothing.

Love fruit beers. Wanted something in Canada like the Thomas Kemper, and by george, I found it! What a great summer beer.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2006
Pale hazy amber colour with a thin white head. Soft raspberry aroma, light milky/creamy aroma with a bit of wheaty spiciness as well. Flavour is pretty good, tart raspberry and a bit of lactic acidity. Thin-bodied but very drinkable. Fairly tart and dry finish keep this from being cloying like many raspberry beers.

Rentalman (103) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2006
Bottle - Pours out ruby tinted light but clear of yeast. (I was hoping for a turbid cloudy yeast filled stew) With a light pinky white head. Raspberries and wheat malt aroma. Flavor of wheat and raspberry with a tiny bit sweetness Needs a bit of acidity or a bit of sourness and a bit more raspberry kick. Also they need to not filter all the yeast out. They should take their velvet fog recipe and add some sour profile raspberries.

jercraigs (10365) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2005
Bottle. Pale yellow witha small white head. Tart fruity aroma. Flavour is pretty simplistic, delivering just enough of the tart fruity notes of the aroma. Not much else though, bit bland. Very tart raspberry notes linger a bit in the finish. Average to thin palate.

2.9
pintbypint (3634) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 28, 2005
1L flip top brown bottle. Golden pour with a thin tight bubbled white head. Aroma had slight raspberry note, with a lot of wheat. Flavour was dryish, strong wheat character. Raspberry character was weak, little to no bitterness. Light body and crisp carbonation. Would have liked more fruit throughout.
