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.

For me, fruit beer is summer beer. When this appeared in my Wild Rose taster pack, I was glad it was a warm December day so I could sample it in front of my barbecue. There is a strong raspberry nose, a bit of sweet lager with a bitter finish. As far as fruit beers go, this is pretty good. The fruit seems important, rather than an afterthought. Wild Rose is a very dependable brewery and has outpaced Big Rock in my books.

Appearance: Strawberry blonde, slightly cloudy with a slight head and a bit of lacing. Some sediment/pulp in the bottle.
Smell: Raspberry, bread.
Taste: Slightly sweet up front. Mild, but tasty raspberry in the middle. Yeast in the back. Moderate tartness and very mild hop bitterness. Fairly drinkable.
Overall: The best raspberry ale I have had. Very drinkable, but not all that interesting.

Off gold, 1 inch of pinkish white head in pint glass, slight lacing.

Grey / Brown chunks of (raspberry?) floating around left a 'dirty' feel to the pour and marred the head. Raspberry flavour for sure, but predominantly in the palate backed by light malt and wheat flavours.

Musty, mildewy odour pervaded the nose. Like the cardboard the raspberries were shipped in. Cardboard and funk. Didn't hold up well at all. Really, I should have rated lower, because I dumped it.

Poured a Coopers Wheat Ale homebrew that made my mouth feel better after.

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.
