Pours a raspberry red with a thin pink head. Fairly strong raspberry taste, one of the better fruit flavored beers I've had to date. Fairly carbonated and light-medium feel.

Really nice ruby red color. Around a medium body as well as carbonation. Aroma is raspberry,raspberry jam,followed by a slight bit of malt , mixed berry,and a little fliral. Taste is raspberry,there's a little yeast,some malt, tart candy,and a lot more raspberry. They did manage to make it still taste real and not artifical, flavor comes off really enjoyable. The raspberry jam taste is a little sweet which is the only fault but overall I thought it was a great beer

Great color and the first beer that I've ever had with a pink head. Great aroma and raspberry taste. Slightly over carbonated but still a really good summertime beer.

As good as any Belgian Framboise at a more affordable cost. It may be brewed differently but the bottom line is is is better in every aspect: aroma, appearance and taste.

Can from Brewers Haven. Beautiful pour into a Lindeman's flute. dark amber/ ruby tinges, light pink head. Fruity, berry aroma. Taste is also fruity, raspberries, and brings some tartness, and bit of dryness. Bright and crisp, sweet and tart. Really nice.
