Pours a pale golden colour, clear with a small white head that disappears fairly quickly. Aroma is of wheat, light malts and raspberry. Taste is a mild sweetness, not bitter. Light body, average carbonation, and thin on the palate. Overall a decent beer, not overly sweet, which is nice in a fruit beer.

The raspberry flavour and smell is exactly like a fresh raspberry from the pricly bushes. This is a beer first and a rasperry beer second. The fruit flavour is very noticable but not overpowering. However there is a definite distinction between the two flavours, almost like they are fighting to be noticed but neither wants to steal all the attention.

Clear yellow with a white foamy head. Smells strongly of raspberries. Tastes strongly of raspberry as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours gold/pink clear, head disappears quick. Aroma of raspberry. Tastes of malt with a light hint of raspberry. Pretty good, although it could use more raspberry flavour.

i thought this was really unbalanced and the raspberry was just bad tasting. sickly tartness that doesn't sit well with me.

A refreshing fruit beverage from the ale makers in Calgary known as Wild Rose. I suppose they used wild Raspberries in this too. They say ’Drink the pink’, well I’ve drank the pink, except it was more of a pinkish orange. Grassy malt and weak raspberry are the odours du jour. The raspberries are a little more noticeable in the taste because they lend a refreshing tartness.

Better than most fruit beers, the raspberry is a nice accent to this beer and really compliments the nose. Nothing super special.

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.

Beautiful appearance, very impressive. But not a regular beer at all. Has sour qulaities and an odd aroma - assumingly due to the berries in the recipe. Lots of flavour, but not my type of preference. Lacks balance, and perhaps less berry input. Not a beer i would drink more than one of.

To uderstand this beer you must understand "patio," season. It is a real nice hot weather ale with a pink dusty gold appearance. you will usually get the "North American," pour, which is headless( what a shame). There is a slight nose of raspberry, and a tart blonde ale flavor. It is easy on the palate and great in teh Summer. Personally I do not even like fruit beers, but this one is done right. It leaves the "BEER" in fruit beer.
