dantheman278 (1358) - SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2012
Tasted at BrewDog. Pale orange, thin white head. Soapy raspberry cordial nose, hint of lemony hops. Bland lager front, soapy bitter hop finish. Not a fan.

BeerCast_Rich (1847) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 1, 2012
[keg at BrewDog Edinburgh] Clear red pour, thin white head. Downhill from then on. Aroma of weak raspberry cordial, alongside an acetic bitterness. Tastes like watered down Cantillon. Bitter, watery raspberry finish - the fruit is there, but it needs more of everything - not often you can say that about a BrewDog beer, but there you go [29122011]

harrisoni (13198) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2011
On tap at BrewDog Camden. Reddish orange clear thin pink head. Some light raspberry fruit. A little thin in mouth some tea character not sure i entirely like it. Bit of a struggle to finish. Nice residual fruit though.

Scopey (6180) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2011
Keg at Brewdog Aberdeen. It pours red, with a thick white head. The nose is raspberry, metal, sherbet and Braeburn apple. The taste is dough, hay, raspberry, soap, metal and wood, with a short, dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Not doing it for me at all. I much preferred the 1st batch of Prototype 17 in pretty much every aspect.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2011
On keg at BrewDog Edinburgh, NYE 2011. Pours a golden - pink colour with a thin white head. Aroma isn’t overly pleasant with a medicinal quality, Ardennes yeast, woody with raspberry. Quite bready also. Flavours quite similar with honey, raspberries, oak and lemon. Quite bitter and very dry to finish. Mild carbonation and an apple seed linger.

BenH (2146) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 29, 2011
Tap at brewdog. Golden with white head. Aroma has barnyard funk with estery yeast and raspberry. Similar tastes, quite messy and somewhat unpleasant. Tart finish. Quite shit
