0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2008 "...the flavour is very bland as if each taste cancels themselves out."
I agree, but this for me is not a good thing. Purchased 6 bottles of this stuff and pours with almost no head at all that quickly disappears. The aftertaste is a bit heavy for me.
I don’t think I could stomach another one. Perhaps my girlfriend might enjoy it..
Not a very good raspberry beer IMO.
I almost want my $12.00 bucks back...
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2017 I’m particularly fond of this fruity ale. Easy patio drinking on hot summer days. Tranquillity (2333) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2017
Bottled at stockman’s. The body is clear peach with a big head and the aroma has raspberry and cucumber. The taste is good although on the mellow side. maley1 (1273) - Calgary, CANADA - AUG 11, 2016
Clear golden pour with pinkish tinge and small white head. Aroma of raspberries, wheat, grains and faint hops. Taste of tart raspberries, wheat, grains, faint hops and slightly metallic. Light bodied, fizzy carbonation, metallic aftertaste. Listigovers (1171) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2016
Clear golden, smells strongly and sweetly of berries. Thin and watery, soda like carbonation, not sweet actually but mostly berry flavor with some light grain in the end. Drinkable. revoltingblob (46) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 17, 2016

On tap @ Moxie's Edmonton. Pours a clear gold with a faint pink tinge. Aromas of light raspberry and biscuity malts. Tastes are similar to aroma with slight sweetness. Light and creamy on the palate, mild biscuity finish. Very pleasant session beer.

Modest head that disappears quick and a slightly red copper body. aroma of raspberries and wood. flavour is nice dry raspberry with a dry finish. nice, good balance of fruit against the beer. Hammy78 (973) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2015
Bottle . Pours a clear copper, half finger of fast disappearing white head. Nose is raspberry. Tastes grain forward, a little essence of raspberry. a_sully (457) - - AUG 3, 2014
Clear yellow with a white foamy head. Smells strongly of raspberries. Tastes strongly of raspberry as well.

Pours a slightly hazy orange gold with a short white head diminishing quickly to a thin skim and spotty lacing. Nose is sweet raspberry and faint biscuit malt, with just a hint of funk as the bottle progresses. Taste follows suit, leading out sweet, with no hop presence. Mouth feel tends to the watery side, with low carbonation.
I only bought this because it was both a local brewery, and on the discount shelf. It’s a good thing I didn’t have high hopes, because they’d’ve been dashed. It’s not bad, as such, but it doesn’t have a lot of character. The fruit doesn’t taste artificial, and there’s even a little funk, but some hop presence would’ve been nice. Not bad, but not all that interesting.
