Pour was light amber with a pink hue. White foam disappeared quickly with no lacing.

Lightly raspberry on the nose. Not much else.

Flavor was a crisp washing of raspberries, tartness. Not sweet. Light grainy malt base asserts itself a bit to provide a beer presence. Easy to tell real berries were used somewhere along the line. Light but well crafted body. Decently carbonated.

Certainly a good example of a naturally flavored fruit beer, right up there with Dark Horse's raspberry ale. Easy to drink and obviously refreshing.

Served on-tap in a 5 oz sampler.

Appears a dark pink, to almost red, color with a foamy white head. Doesn't leave a lot of lacing, but still looks slightly inviting.

Nose is full of sweet raspberry, and that's pretty much all. The taste is much different as it finishes nice and tart. This starts out sweet, as expected, but quickly moves to the tart finish. Reminds me a lot of pink lemonade, but I can actually go back for more of this.

This has a light body with average carbonation, nothing out of the ordinary. Overall, a decent brew. Definitely something new and interesting and I can see a lot of people not enjoying it. That being said, it was very refreshing and enjoyable.

I had this on tap at the Moosejaw Pizza and Brewing Co. in Wisconsin Dells in Spring 2011.

Pours a cloudy reddish amber color with a pretty thin head on it. Scent is of sweet raspberries and summer wheat. The taste is that of a smooth wheat beer with a nice raspberry finish. It does have a mild taste overall. If I were to compare it to anything, it reminds me of a thinner, weaker New Glarus Raspberry Tart only more creamy. Not bad for a store brew!

A - Red-orange with a short white head

S - Mild raspberry aroma but not much else.

T - Good taste. Raspberries are more tart than sweet. Mild grain. Not bitter. Finishes dry.

M - Light body and low carbonation

D - Easy. Fairly refreshing. Not great but I enjoyed my one beer with dinner.

Dark orange or copper in color. Actually almost a red color. The color is pretty spectacular given the style of beer. There is little to no head on the beer however so I go down from 5. The attack is clean and refreshing but the flavor seems to have a heavy maltiness about it. The malt body carries and hides the fruit until you approach the finish and then the raspberry starts to slowly grow and then explodes in the finish and aftertaste. It may not be for everyone, but I sure did find it enjoyable and I go on "no fruit in beer" kicks once in a while.

Pours a cloudy, pink/salmon color with a lighter hue of pink along the top of the glass. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of raspberry extract, a creamy sweetness, and a strawberry aroma. Fits the rather broad category of a cream ale. Mouth feel is choppy, juicy, and tart with an average carbonation level. Tastes of fruit juice, hint of cream, and some yeast cleanliness. Overall, not a very good brew - too tart an not a good blend.
