3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Orange coloured. Unclear. Beige dense head. Sour, earthy aroma full of raspberries. Delicious. Light sweet fruityness in the flavour. Is sourish and grapish and has light raspberry notes. Is a bit bland in the flavour. Dry sweet end. Quite refreshing. Thanks to Ungstrup for handing me this.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
An unclear orange-red almost pinkish beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of raspberries, while the flavor is a combination of sweetness and acidity, leading to a dry raspberry finish.

(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a hazy orangey golden with a small, creamy, white head. Distinct aroma of raspberries. Light-bodied with very pleasant, lightly acidic raspberry flavours. No bitterness - ends as it started, fruity and fresh. A nice fruit beer. 170406

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pinkish colour and very opaque, like grapefruit juice, if grapefruit juice had a huge frothing head on it. Smells a bit like grapefruit, then comes raspberries, vanilla and nuts. Soft, sweetish, delicate and rounded fruit flavour. Quickish finish, but this is the hugely refreshing raspberry beer that hundreds of brewers should be doing, instead of just mailing it in by adding syrup to their regular wheat or golden ale.

Clody peach colour, rich head. Aroma of fresh raspberries. Dry, fresh and lightly acidic. The mouthfeel is light and pleasant. Interesting and fairly well balanced beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin, off-white head, slowly disappearing; fully hazy (yeast in suspension) peach-coloured beer. Very perfumey, but not fruit; rather spciy: coriander maybe, rosewater, other aromatic spices; also a whiff of wet cardboard. Taste is more fruity; sweet (red) gooseberry, bit citrus fruit but not aggressively sour, some exotic fruit - but no raspberry... finish is a bit grainy, pale malts. Very slightly acidic. Light mouthfeel without being thin. Acidity makes it refreshing. Several brewers have told me that raspberries pose a problem, losing both colour and flavour fast. But aroma... They will have to learn yet in Switzerland, one needs a LOT of fruit - or something else. I’m sure they will get there.

red-orange colour, fine head and a nice lace, beautiful raspberry aroma, light-bodied, touch of acidity, dry acidic finish - balanced but the beer character is a little bit denaturated

Still unreleased, this special brew is made by (real) raspberries and aged at least one year. Amber-orange ale, cloudy. White wine and champagne aroma, fruity. Good texture, correct balance of malt body, bitter dryness and fruit notes, yet none is really characteristic. Poor palate (only a few hops where used for not hiding the fruits); dry finish.

Hazy orange color. Dry fruity aroma. Raspberry taste, harmonious, very nice, balanced by a reasonable body and a correct bitterness. It's not my favorite style, but it's perfectly brewed.
