3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer has a nice smell and a taste that is certainly beer from fruit. That part is nice, but the beer itself is very mild and doesn’t leave you looking for more. The palate is boring, dissipating the flavor quickly. If you’ve never tried a fruit beer you might really enjoy it, but I’ve had cherry beer from the same brand and found it much nicer.

1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
500ml bottle. Bit hazy, bright yellow color. Tiny to almost no head. Sweet, sour, raspberry, slightly metallic notes in aroma. Geeeez this is sweet. It’s like sugar, sugar and just in case more sugar. And some raspberries. Never again.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
O,5l glass bottle. Not an expert on fruits beer, but this one is very light, totally not over sweetened. It’s beer, not cider.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
0,5L bottle. First - artificial raspberry aroma. Light pink foam, body with pink tones also. Not a beer, artificial juice-like drink. Bad.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500ml Bottle - Golden with some noticeable pink tones and a white head. Raspberry jelly, malt and vilda bär fanta in the aroma. Sweet taste with more in common with a panda pop than a beer. Notes of artificial raspberry dominate. Rather sickly and more like a soft drink.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500ml bottle (Stockmann, Riga)
4 Sickly sweet childrens sweets, raspberry clearly, dominate the aroma, but fortunately they’re not too repulsive.
2 Pale, tiny head.
4 Mercifully low raspberry essence actually lets the taste of the beer come through. Alas, part of what comes through is burnt plastic in the retronasals. However, the rest of the taste is a simple sweet pale malty lager. Wow - there is actually some beer in this one!
2 Thin palate, sharp carbonation. Sticky finish, mostly the raspberry flavour in the early finish, and just a bit of pale malts too if you concentrate.
7 Too sweet, and I’ve been generous with the points here, but this is so almost drinkable compared with the last too.
