Jamedra (384) - Hostivice, - OCT 21, 2013
Láhev 375 ml. Aroma je krásně silně malinové. Pěna je vysoká, mocca barvy, jemná a držící. Barva samotného piva je tmavší rubínová. Chuť má příjemný malinový střed s nakyslým okrajem, finiš je ovocně nahořklý a nedržící. Jedná se o velmi příjemné pivo sladší chuti, osvěžující a velmi dobře pitelné.

Senka (348) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 28, 2014
From the archives: Had this on on several occasions. Never got used to it. Very interesting sour/kriek, but not my favourite. Easy drinking, and I prefer it as a side to a sweet cheesecake.

AdiBeer (591) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2014
Aroma: raspberry flavours dominating. Appearance: dark clear red, small white head. Taste: light sour. Palate: sours coming up. Overall: too much raspberry, but naive to think otherwise. Bottle at The Champion, Bayswater.

Cloudy red, with thining head. Good raspberry aroma, with a sweet raspberry flavour. Not the best fruit beer I’ve ever had, I like them sharper, but I glugged this down in a few mouthfulls .

edsspoon (137) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2014
Pours deep red with a thin, off-white head that quickly disappears to a ring. Strong aroma of raspberry, some cherry and sourness, hint of malt. Tastes of raspberry and sourness, a hint of malt and slightly bitter. Really sweet. First fruit beer I’ve had and I thoroughly enjoyed it, if anything a bit too sweet.

JonnyConga (51) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2014
Pours cloudy red. Strong raspberry aroma. Tastes very fruity - raspberry as expected with a touch of malt. Quite refreshing with a slightly sour aftertaste. Not the tastiest fruit Belgian I’ve had (this is my 2nd) but still a tasty beer. And the green mini champagne bottle it comes in is awesome!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
