On tap at the Raccoon Lodge, home of Cascade Brewing. Color is a dark ruby, and the nose is raspberry kool-aid. That wouldn't be so bad if the taste wasn't raspberry cough syrup. Not the worst I've had with such a description because the mouth was a bit lighter and those flavors aren't really punishing, although it felt a bit harsh. Overall not pleasant and I'm wondering what the market is for this. Looking at the other reviews makes me wonder if this one was a bit off?

04AUG12 at the barrel house.

Very disappointed with this one. The server did not warn us this was an overnight sour mash (she later indicated after I said it was too sweet and plain).

Looks like a watered down Rose wine - flat and glassy. Smells of raspberries and sweet alcohol with a slightly rosy character. Fun nose. Flavor is much less fun. Tastes like a golden ale with a bunch of raspberry flavor - not tart, but slightly dry on the finish. Sad beer.

A good effort, this brew is dominated by yeast with hints of raspberry. It really comes across as being artificial, the raspberry actually seems to have a medicinal quality. The wheat is not really doing anything either except adding cloudiness to the brew.

A rare miss for these guys. Perhaps I got the dregs from the keg or something. I'll taste again when I can and update.
