Tap, Amsterdam brew house, Toronto, Canada. Medium amber with pink. Bright fruit hop aroma. Jam in the background. Nice flavour sharp with strong berry. Long jammy finish.

Pours a clear maroon. Aromas are raspberry jam. Very nice. Flavours fall flat. A bit sweet...not a lot of tartness...almost no raspberry in the flavour. Disappointing. Beautiful bottle and artwork.

Bottle shared with cards04. vibrant sweet raspberry aroma. Dark red body white head some lacing. Faintly sweet raspberry taste. Nice but not as tart or sweet as I was hoping for

Bottle. Deep, clear ruby read pour with a dense, pinkish beige head. Aroma is like a fresh bowl of raspberries, hint of creaminess. Flavour is raspberries, a bit of wheat, malty like an amber ale but nicely suited to the raspberry. A really nicely done fruit beer.

Bad lager/ale smell with raspberry jam smell. Same taste with a burn/bite and it’s only 6.5%. Not that great.

Pours a clear dark ruby with a large diminishing frothy pink head. Pink head?! That’s a first for me. Nice aroma of caramel malt and raspberries. Flavour is the same as the aroma but is a tad too sweet for me, but that’s a personal preference as this beer is very well made and enjoyable.

Ruby-red body with a very thin fizzy head, pink. Real authentic rasberry aroma, not the artificial sweetness that seems like a hard candy that is present in a lot of beers. Was kind of expecting a sour, rather than a radler. Really minimal hop presense and soft carb. Sessionable for sure.Would be a great dessert beer.

Bien balancée. Bon goût de framboise. Pas vraiment acidulée, fruitée et rafraichissante. N’a pas de saveurs qui semblent artificielles. Je n’avais pas d’attente mais c’est finalement une bonne bière aux fruits.

Pours a ruby red with a foamy white head with a slight pink hue. Aroma is what you’d expect, burst of fresh raspberries. Has a light-medium body with a fizzy almost champagne-like carbonation. The taste is fairly dry, not as sweet as a lot of raspberry beers I’ve had, which is nice for a change.

650 ml bottle. Pours a clear orangeish amber with a resilient, orange-whitish head. Aroma is loads of raspberry, brown sugar and malt. Flavor is raspberry and herbal. Finish is very sour, tart. Some herbs, as well as unripe fruit peel. Lingering herbs, unripe raspberry, some earthy notes. Light to medium body, sticky mouthfeel and an average carbonation.
