Leighton (18222) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2010
UPDATED: APR 20, 2010 Tap at Ulysses. Not bad at all. Pours a light, orange-red with a foamy white head. Wheat nose with slight hints of raspberry and yeast. Flavor is very bready, with some mild malty sweetness and fruity tartness. Light to medium in body, well carbonated and pretty crisp. If you like fruit and/or wheat beers, this will be right up your alley.

Theydon_Bois (16671) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Can at Stouts NYC - for the state tick (in writing), 23/11/13. Hazed dark amber with light reddish hues and a thin off white pond/edgework. Nose is raspeberry forward, sugars, caramel, malty, straw. Taste comprises sweet raspeberry syrup, lightly toasted malts, wheat, sugars. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, crisp finish. Refreshing for what it is I guess - BBQ summer beer perhaps but one would be enough - sweet sweet sweet !

yngwie (16483) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2013
On tap at Yard House Houston. Its an unclear golden beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is quite boring, with a certain fruity, berry-ish domination. Some malty hints. The flavor pretty much the same, fruits and berries dominates, leaving little room for the malts and hops. Medium buddy, a bit heavy on the carbonation. Fruity finish. Definitely not my kind of fruit beer, even though its not foul on any way. 131114

TBone (16116) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 29, 2009
Bottled (CK). Hazy dark orange color, small white head. Lightly tart and metallic rasberry aroma. Watery, bland palate. Light fruityness, rasberry seeds flavor, a bit wheaty-grainy. Light sourness, not much, in the finish. Overall very watery and useless.

bhensonb (13995) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 21, 2007
Medium raspberry aroma. Hazy orange gold color with no real head. Starts with weak raspberry. Weak body, pumped up a bit as the fizziness fizzes. Weakly sweet. Finish is rather weak raspberry seed. Overall its fairly refreshing. Likely to be good around the pool.
