Draught at the Bikkuri Donkey Kyoto Sanjo restaurant. Reddish pink color with a tall, airy head.. Lots of bubbles. Somewhat fake looking. Big raspberry nose, a bit syrupy, not too bad. No way this is pure fruit. Sweet and fruity flavor, raspberry with cherry, slightly tangy, with a bit of pils malt in the background and some hop bitterness. Way too sweet, and the finish is still sweet and not nice. Well, I know the brewery is just doing this for the restaurant chain as a gimmick or something, but I hoped they might pull it off.
