This tasted like a sparkling raspberry wine. While I didn't think it tasted like beer, my wife, who doesn't like beer, could taste the malt, which is what she hates about beer. Very different, but nothing I would drink again. However, it is very light. Worth trying, but not worth a repeat.
I've seen this all over the place and always been curious. I had some tonight at a beer tasting at the local bottle shop and I'm not curious anymore. I'm also not contemplating buying this anymore. Raspberry jam goes on a sandwich with peanut butter, not in a bottle in the beer section.
This was not like having a beer at all. It was like having a really yummy fizzy raspberry spritzer. But, the raspberries tasted real, not like the artificial berry in some summer brews. Nice refreshing girly beverage.

Had this at the Dublin Pub. Strong fresh raspberry fruit flavor. Almost like juice or a wine cooler, and not too far off from Ripple. Fruit flavors couldn't be fresher tasting - not syrupy. Good for desert. Felt a little gay for liking this (not that there's anything wrong with that). Lack of alcohol content is disappointing.
