3.45/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the 11.2 oz bottle into a standard pint glass. Bottle is aged for roughly 2 years from my cellar. Bottom of the bottom has a hearty yeast sediment that was unaffected by my harshest swirlings.

Appearance- Beer pours a light red with a slim pink head that dies quickly to a light murk across the top. Lacing is slim and not too substantial. Beer itself is hazy and likely has a good portion of wheat in it.

Smell- Raspberries is thick in the scent but it smells artificial. It's hard to explain, it has a very nutrasweet smell to it. I assume there is wheat and base malts, but all I can get is the sugary fruit on the nose. No Delerium yeast here.

Taste- Raspberry kool aid and wheaty malts, a very thick corn syrup flavor, some real raspberries as well, not terrible, but not a repeat frambois either.

Mouthfeel- Cloying, acidic, sticky, medium in carbonation and medium full bodied.

Drinkability- Ok for drinking, but this frambois is not one I will revisit, especially considering the price, give me a Delerium Nochtrum instead.

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.

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

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.

3.53/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.
