Beer 169/365 – Southern Tier Raspberry Porter

Style: American Porter

ABV: 4.8%

Purchased at: Vintage Estate – Boardman Ohio

What makes this beer different: Bleh, sour, and fizzy like pop (soda)

Will I be drinking this again: Nope

Grade: C

4/26/2010: Argh! Southern Tier you were on a roll, I thought you were the kings of dark beer. Then you give me this crap. I guess realistically this is a beer a lot of girls might like (simply because most girls will try any beer with a sweet fruit in it), and probably sells well to people who aren’t really into craft beer so, I can’t be a hater.

This sounds like pop (yes its pop) when you pour it out, super fizzy. The first taste is almost like a raspberry candy, very artificial tasting. A little bit of chocolate flavor is the only thing that saves this beer at all. Very carbonated and fizzy. To me you should never be able to see THAT much light pass through a porter (look above at picture), and yes it is a bit watery tasting too. Why can’t someone make a GOOD cherry/raspberry porter? Does anyone know of one? Because I have yet to drink one.

Picture of the day: If I had a kid I would for sure get him this shirt.

  1. “this is a beer a lot of girls might like”

    Seriously?!

    • I did not mean that as an insult, just speaking from experience.

      If you throw any type of fruit into beer, a lot of “non-beer drinking girls” will usually try it simply because it sounds good. ie: Sam Adams Cherry wheat, a lot of my female friends love the stuff, same goes for Atlantic Blueberry Ale.

      • No hard feelings, just wanted to let you know that you have a regular lady reader, who likes serious beer.

        Honestly, in my experience, most guys like mass produced lagers, so neither sex comes out ahead here.

        • Good Deal. This is true, regardless of gender they each like their fair share of crappy beers. Just different kinds of crappy beer haha.

  2. Yeah, that doesn’t look much like a porter to me
