330ml. Bottle. Pours a cloudy ruby red with a small white head. Aroma and Taste is of sweet framboise, berries, raspberry, some yeast and malt, mildly tart fruity notes. Palate is a medium body, refreshingly crisp with lively carbonation, sweet and tart. Finish is sweet tart fruity, berries, raspberry flavored, with some yeast and malt under tones, with a lingering sweet tart raspberry ending. Overall a pleasant, crisp and refreshing after dinner drink

There's a very raspberry appearance to this beer, though that seems appropriate. Purplish red hue sits just under a bright white head that was thin and fizzy.

The scent is all raspberry but it seems very real. Perhaps on steroids the aromas are one dimensional but very sweet and clean.

The taste is incredibly sweet raspberry but with an earthy grain. No malt to speak of the taste is all raspberry and hyped up in flavor. It's reminiscent of the Smirnoff Ice drinks but has a touch of real raspberry and not so artificial.

I had this at a Beer School that featured fruit beers and as bad as it is there were far more women who found this impressive than men but I absolutely enjoyed this and would search it out again.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: Bright cherry red with a slight orange tinge, a little brown hue when held to some lights. Slightly cloudy, can’t really see any carbonation, and not any head, a slight whitish pink foam disappears before you can say ‘eh’.

S: Raspberries, raspberry cordial, raspberry candy, slight acidic almost vinegar quality, flowers.

T: Raspberries, lilac perfume, sweet, sour, then a punch of beer like yeast sour, and all the aforementioned flavours linger on your tongue as a scented memory, as the intensity of the flavours finish quickly, but their spirit in the form of a scent remains.

M: Medium weighty body that is somewhat syrupy, but has a dry quick finnish. Medium low carbonation.

O: I really like this one and find it uber refreshing on this hot day. Very true to its raspberry flavours which are in balance of sweet and sour, it feels light due to its dry quick finnish and appropriate carbonation, making it very refreshing and desirable to return for each sip. Great by itself, it would go well with cheesecake.

Picked up 12oz bottle in Maine, cost me $9 after duty. Gotta do what it takes to make the girlfriend happy.

A Dark red, almost purple colour, very little head.

S Ripe raspberries, sour keys, those chewy ribbon sour candies with the sugar coated on it, know what I mean?

T Sweet raspberries giving way to sour raspberries, fruit juice.

M Fizziness, fairly smooth though.

O This is basically a raspberry pop with alcohol in it. But unlike most I don't discount it as beer. I think sweet and sour beers have just as much place in the repetoire as russian imperials or dipa's, some snobs just seem to think they taste too good for it or something. Each their own. I probably would never list a fruit beer as the greatest ever, but I tend to really like them as a treat. She really likes it, so brownie points for that.

330ml bottle. First new instance from this series to show its face in Alberta in quite a while now.

This beer pours a hazy dark maroon hue, with three fingers of puffy, bubbly pink-tinged dirty white head, which leaves some broad arched swaths of lace around the glass as it sinks away.

It smells of less-than-sweet raspberry puree, a prominent Swedish Berry 'fruitiness', some soft pale malt graininess, and very weak drying, earthy hops. The taste is varied sugary black fruit sweetness - 'field berry', 'mixed berry', or what have you, a barely adequate tartness, some overburdened, or underwhelming, sharp wheat notes, and more soft, indistinct drying, uh, hops, I guess.

The bubbles are pretty sedate, and little more, the body a sturdy medium weight, bolstered by that sugar syrup essence endemic to these types of offerings, and smooth by the same measure. It finishes sweet, but not cloyingly so, as the balanced nature of the titular fruit starts to show some support.

We all know what we're getting into with this type of thing - that said, this is one of the better versions from this brewer - the raspberry does vary from candy to the actual fruit in its disposition, which at least provides a nice nostalgic ride from childhood through, um, well a different part of it. Anyways, tasty for what it is, which admittedly has very little to do with 'normal' beer.

dark pink/purple hue, strong grape, sweet, candy, nose, sweet upfront, vineous middle, sweet aftertaste lingers, dessert beer, one beer max.

One of the better Floris fruit beers I have tasted so far. The sweet smell isn't fully transferred into a, as sweet taste which makes the beer more drinkable.

look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 11.2 oz. bottle into Stella Artois "chalice."

Appearance: Pours a deep, cloudy ruby with a surprisingly retentive light pink head. A surprising amount of pink lacing stays on the glass.

Smell: Raspberry Crystal Light, slight funkiness. Smells really fake.

Taste: That's interesting, and not what I was expecting. Sweet raspberries flood your taste buds first, followed by a distinctive tartness and funky earth tones. Some kind of spice, maybe coriander, is also detected, as well as a yeast-like flavor. A lot more complex than I was initially expecting. Pleasantly surprised.\

Mouthfeel: Light to moderate body and moderate carbonation, slightly dry.

Overall: Surprisingly tasty and much more complex in taste than I was expecting, definitely recommended.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

A: Musty red-brown pour with a small white to light pink, fizzy head.

S: Very raspberry like, certainly not sour. Smells sweet and syrupy.

T: Extremely sweet. All raspberries and other berries dominate the taste. I really don't get anything else.

MF: Syrupy, but no where on the level of Founders Blushing Monk. This pales in comparison to that. Carbonated well.

O: This was a huge miss for me. Just too sweet. Like a child's drink with 3.7% ABV included.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Look - dark brown-colored, but with a slight rose-colored hue. About half a finger's worth of pink-colored foam that dissipates slowly.

Smell - very fruity and sweet in smell. It's quite "berry-like", but I don't specifically smell raspberries.

Taste and Mouthfeel - very unique taste. It's very sweet from the off, but has a weird kick in the middle, and then finishes sweet. When the kick first happened, I literally twisted my face to the side a bit. It's not a bad kick though, just a little surprising. Texture is pretty good and well-balanced.

Overall - pretty typical for the most part, but still rather interesting and fun to taste.
