A really light brew with a very pleasant flavor of raspberries. Thin body. Interesting without the usual wheat flavors, so maybe it is a regular light malt beer. The wheat-based fruit beers are certainly more numerous. This is clean, crisp, light, and refreshing.

Seems to be a favorite when people order the tasters-- the pink color is unmistakable. Gorgeous pink shade with a low white head. Fruity taste but rather dry. On a bicycle ride out from the city, this was the ideal quaff for a summer day. On tap at the brewpub. [notes from 05/26/2012 visit]

Looks like a fruit beer. Flavor is...ack! Wretched. Seems like a concentrated flavor additive. And what's there is way too much. You can almost taste the syrup in it. Totally lame. This kind of beer should have died 10 years ago and I can't move beyond it quickly enough.

A: Pink grapefruit intial pour turns a dark cherry while in the vessel. Strong sense of carbonation with a creamy-frothy tannish head that showed hints of pinkish hues. Lacing is moderate, spotty, while the top coverage has a good rate of retention lasting well into the drink.

S: Aroma has a slight tartness of raspberries, dairy creamer and raspberry yougurt of moderate intentions.

T: Flavor was sweet initially, sugary raspberries at first that turns to a slight tartness on the trail end. Dairy creamer and raspberry yogurt with some fruity sweetness with a smooth and creamy finish, perhaps wheat based.

M: The body leans towards the lighter end of medium, frothy and creamy nature with a raspberry punch twang of tartness that has a slight lingering effect.

O: Overall not usually a fan of berry/vegetable style beers but this turned out pretty decent for what it was. The flavor seem natural and not artifical, with a creamy body base.

A bit of CANQuest (TM) thanks to the 'Yunkers at the Opening Tap of PHL Beer Week table for getting me some CANs to take away and review. I CAN guarantee that these will not be wasted like the ones some jagov was pouring down his gullet at the end of the night. There was a third CANned beer that he chugged down as I watched in dismay! Grrr.

From the CAN: "Every small batch of this ruby colored ale is fermented with over 500 pounds of plump raspberries for a distinct berry aroma and a tart, yet not too sweet flavor. The beer is lightly filtered to preserve this delicate profile. The name Schuylkill Punch is a colloquialism for the tang of the Philadelphia river water back in the olden days, and the recipe has been with the Manayunk Brewing Company since we began."

The Crack unleashed some beautiful pink foam that jumped out to greet me! I had to give it a moment to calm down before beginning the inverted Glug. I got a brief, foamy finger of pink head that looked like cotton CANdy which withered in the heat and humidity of the day. Nose was tart and very raspberry and I was reminded of my late-paternal grandmother's garden with its raspberries along the fence. Color was a slightly hazy reddish-purplish-pink. It is a good thing that I am comfortable with my masculinity or I might be embarrassed to be seen with this beer in my glass. Mouthfeel was big and full, not quite creamy, but very effervescent. The taste left no doubt that raspberries were involved and the yeast worked well with them to create a tartness that was perfect for the weather. Sweet? Not really, if at all. Raspberries fermented into alcohol generally produce a tartness and since I usually eschew sweets, this is perfect for me. The finish was dry and refreshing, perfect for summer. Put some in a cooler and take a boat ride down the Schuylkill River!

A thanks to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark pinkinsh color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of sour raspberries. Taste is the same, tart, slightly sour, a good bit of berry flavor, not much else going on. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.
