omhper (19218) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2002
Deep red ale with soft raspberry aroma. Unlike many fruit ales the flavours are well melted together.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2001
An impressive fruit beer, packed with raspberry taste, a high degree of acidity, and more body than most.

Lubiere (9765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2003
draft. Cotton candy nose, almost like a raspberry sucker...fresh sour raspberry in the mouth, with some sourness, divided opinions (between me and Dum)

Bov (9270) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 20, 2001
intense ruby colour, few head, fine raspberry aroma, pretty sour - quite strange but not bad at all

hopdog (8796) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2007
341ml bottle acquired in trade with radiomgb (thanks!). Poured a darker reddish color with a brown tinge to it and a smaller sized pinkish head. Aromas of sweet and tart raspberries. I like the way the aroma is. Tastes of sweet raspberries and other berries. Light tart finish. Syrupy body. Not that bad for a fruit beer.

maeib (8598) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2004
Bottled - BeerBistro Toronto. Very very fruity (raspberries) flavour and aroma. The colour is just like red fizzy pop and I'm afraid the taste is just too much like that as well so that your thoughts after are more fruit than beer.

Sammy (8395) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2006
Lambicy on the sourish side, which people who like it like it for this reason Dark pink, and some lighter pink foam, and lace. Definite aroma and some real raspberries in there. Very Drinkable and apparently popular with the fruit beer fans. A bit too foamy but it is a good achievement for its style.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2004
750 ml white bottle. Gorgeous ruby red colour with a rocky pink head. Raspberry aroma flies out of the glass as it's being poured. Faint citrus aroma as well and some thin malt. Flavour is sweet, with huge raspberry notes. Slightly sour coming into the finish. Body is fairly thin. No hops at all to round it off. This is a good beer but it could be a bit more balanced.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 30, 2003
Sweet, fizzy raspberries ascend onto citrusy clouts...Raspberry Coke feel descends in a watery rout...Nothing at all transcends and that's why I'm going out...

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2007 August 2007. Draft at Beerbistro. Ruby body with a small pink-white head (3+). Big tart leafy raspberry aroma. Sweet-tart raspberry flavour is rich but not cloying, though it could still become a bit much after a full pint of it. Alcohol helps cut the sweetness a bit. Average palate. An excellent fruit beer. 7/3+/7-8/3/15-16 - 3.6 <P>July 2003. Nice fruity beer. I like the tartness of this deep red drink. I had rated this higher in the past but I find I am less thrilled with it than i was. 8/4/6/2/15 - 3.5
