Bottle, shared with Robbie. Lovely vibrant garnet red colour, bubbly pink head that fades to a ring. Fresh crushed raspberries and wheat, juicy and seedy without being too sweet. Very nice.

Pours ruby red, with light carbonation and light head that dissipates fairly rapidly.
Aromas are very much raspberry, and very pleasantly so. Maybe a bit of light biscuit in the background.
Mouthfeel is quite surprising in its creaminess.
Tastes are of raspberry, red grapes, and maybe a hint of wine.
This might be too sweet for most, and I couldn’t see myself drinking more than one, but splitting a 650ml bomber with my wife, is going down pretty easily. This is a nice seasonal from Amsterdam.

Bottle - Malts and some oxidized berry notes. Dirty reddish amber with a small white head. Malty raspberry, light tartness and some light sweetness. The malty tones make this chocolate bar like.

I don’t really like fruit beers all that much, they can surely be enjoyable but seem more like a novelty. This Fruit Beer from Amsterdam is just a great beer, fruit-flavoured or otherwise. The aroma is not overly pungent of raspberry, just a nice hint mixed with wheat and honey. She is a beautiful crimson with a bubbly off-white head. Taste is definitely of raspberries but not to a sickening degree. Backed by some hardy caramel malts and citrus hops, it’s not even close to the cloyingly sweet raspberry/strawberry brews that hail from Belgium. A great summer beer but welcomed anytime as it tastes like a real beer with raspberries along for the ride.

From bottle pours actually a dark red, almost a grape juice colour with minimal head that actually laces glass well. Aroma is of raspberry bubble gum. Taste is smooth, neutral - not too sweet, a good balance for a fruity beer.

Very dark brick red sort of pour. Minimal head. Raspberries on the nose with some grainy maltiness. The same can be said of the palate. Nice and dry for this style.
