Notes/Commercial Description:
You will not find any preservatives in this thirst quenching ale. But additives? That's a different story, as each brew of Wild Rose WRaspberry Ale is infused with thousands of natural, juicy-red additives called raspberries.

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

Appearance: peach colored. Pours with little head, just a pop-like fizz. Really looks like peach spritzer. Kind of fitting, considering it's a refreshment brew.

Smell: Light and floral. Almost a rose and raspberry aroma. Not too over the top with the raspberries as there is definitely still a little malt in there to keep it smelling like beer.

Taste: Very light for an ale. Crisp and refreshing biscuity flavors dominated by the fruitiness of roses and raspberries. I appreciate the subdued nature of this raspberry ale as a lot of times, breweries put the flavors a bit over the top.

Mouthfeel: Good overall. A little prickly carbonation which lends itself well to the refreshment value of this beer. Again, not over the top so you're not burping every ten seconds while enjoying it.

Overall: I really like Wild Rose's interpretation of the WRaspberry Ale! Great refreshment value, and you aren't blown away by raspberry nectar. Top quality raspberry ale.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Golden with a slight hue of ambery copper, bit white cap of foam that start to settle right away. Bright & clear with lots of bubbles. Some splotches of lace.

S: Basic wheat beer base. Raspberries for sure. I think they used the real thing – rounded with a fair bit of berry tartness. Good strength & pleasant fruit beer.

T: Grainy, pale, & slightly wheaty base. Raspberry seems very real – rounded, a tad bit of tartness and bite – and not all syrupy & cloying. Perhaps the barest hint of diacetyl. No hops.

M: A tad under medium body. Carbonation is a little bit over being balanced. Minimal sweetness or other textures but there is a little bit. Finish actually goes a tad drying & refreshing.

D: Not remarkable, but a very reasonable & drinkable raspberry fruit beer. Basic but tasty & very solid fruit beer.

341ml bottle poured into a 16oz pint glass.

A - Pours with a fizzy white head and clean copper hue with a pinkish tinge. No head retention, and no lacing.

S - Barley malt and mild tart raspberries. I'll give this one credit, this smells like actual fruit to me, and not an artificial flavor. Sort of like raspberry jam with 2-row and flaked wheat. The fruity character here is surprisingly pleasant and inviting.

T - Light malt upfront with just a moment of raspberry flavor in the finish before it disappears into an aftertaste of light bready malt, wheat, and barley. While the raspberries taste like actual raspberries, they feel a bit too sweet and not tart enough. Overall this is incredibly light with a refreshing feel and subtle fruitiness.

M - Light body with carbonation on the high end. Borders on fizzy, but nothing too inappropriate for the style I suppose.

D - Miles ahead of GIB's False Creek Raspberry mess, but an unspectacular beer nonetheless. I also appreciate the use of actual raspberries and having this beer actually reflect the profile of an ale to some extent. I basically just expected an artificially sweetened lager that would be consumed exclusively on the patios of Southern Alberta, but I can actually see myself trying this one again.

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

Red copper appearance that's slightly cloudy with a small amount of head leaving some lacing. Smell consists of raspberries, wheat, malt with a hint bread and peaches.

Taste consists mainly of raspberries along with a hint of malt, wheat, floral hops and bread. Very light tasting overall and bitter. Light bodied with low carbonation. Aftertaste is a longer dry berry taste.

Not a bad fruit beer, although the taste could use more of a kick to it (thought I would be blasted with berries), it's refreshing, drinkable and not to fruity. Worth a try.

Serving type: on-tap
