harrisoni (17351) - 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.

EdKing (2410) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2012
Keg in Brewdog Camden. Very strange brew. Clear yellow amber colour. Nose is very grain husky, very malty and then some bold raspberry. Taste was not for my palate. Very sweet raspberry fruit, and maltiness but body is light and a bit watery.

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.

maneliquor (3484) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Very tarty and super super sweet raspberries, almost like ribena but sweeter again. A hint of bitterness. Not my cup of tea

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - 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]

dantheman278 (1361) - 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.

tiong (6488) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2012
330ml bottle as Trashy Blond from Drink Shop, Tallinn

Note: The shopkeeper told me this is the new version of Trashy Blond, label says "Statuesque fruity ale", 4,1% ABV
Pours clear pinkish red with a large foamy and bubbly light pink head. Strong aroma of tart raspberries, fruits and hints of strawberries. Taste has massive amounts of raspberries and not much else. Slight hints of fruity hops and malts in the background. Light bodied and carbonated finish with a lot of berries again. Unbalanced and messy.

Scopey (12720) - 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.

BenH (3438) - 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
