Svesse (6065) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2006
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm) Colour is mainly brown, with a disappearing head. Nose is rather sweet, with brown sugar bursting into dark aromas of raspberries and blackberries. Taste is sweet/sour with stifled raspberry notes, a bit of cellar, and a huge sweet/sour/raspberry finish. A bit on the sweet side, but very nice for a 17 year old.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2006
Draught at Plan B, RBESG pub crawl, August 2005. I had this noted as 1989 but, what the heck, its old. And, although it might be old, its certainly still pretty sprightly. Really fresh fruity raspberry aroma. Nice balance of sweet fruit and acidity on the palate, although, understandably, the vibrancy has faded just a touch. But, all in all, the age hasn’t diminished this beer to any significant extent. Crisp, clean and fresh as a daisy. Remarkable.

17 years old: At least, I remember someone saying it was 17 years old, but I see others having listed the beer we had as vintage 1986 or 1989. In any case, this one had been waiting quite a while to meet us and it was well worth the wait... Strong, thick cherry aroma is surprisingly fresh and vibrant with a fairly tart character. Opaque deep red body with low, dense, pink-white head that recedes very slowly to a ring that never fades. Biscuity, clean, raspberry flavour with subtle farmhouse phenolics and restrained acidity in the finish. Medium-light body with lively carbonation and soft texture. Still in marvelous shape despite it’s age. Sampled on draft at Plan B in Copenhagen.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2005
Draught, 86 at Plan B: Red/orange with a beige lasting head. Ripe berries in the nose. Sour yet still so juicy and fresh. Amazing how a beer can be this old yet still taste so incredibly fresh. Long berry fruits. Very juicy and tart. Great stuff.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2005
On draught at plan b, vintage -86, RBESG pub crawl. Red-ish colour with a tint of brown. Sweetish nose, with a light tone of canned raspberry. Lively mouthfeel and very very dry. Berry-ish candy. Very nice.

argo0 (11440) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 23, 2005
(RBESG05, draft at Plan B, Vintage 1986) Cloudy red body topped by an off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, raspberry, some syrup, bubblegum -- truly fantastic, I could stick my nose in this all day. Taste is medium sweet, raspberry, tart, light lemon. Light body, light acidity, remarkably fresh.

DanielBrown (3771) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2005
Sampled at Plan B during RBESG 05 pub crawl, although I can’t remember whether I was aware, at the time if it was bottled or tap or what. Faintly pink brown-ness, with a wonderful choc-covered raspberry aroma. Superb balance - soft fruit to begin, building up to palatable sourness. Spritz, fruit in the mouth, nice interestingingly long finish. Superb quality beer.

Pours brown/red with a white head with some lacing. Fruity, raspberry, almond nose. Acidic, refreshing, fruity flavour as well. Sour, only light bitter finish.

TBone (12535) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 14, 2005
Draught @Plan B, vintage 1989
Deep red wirh small reddish head. Weak earthy, rasberry nose. A bit sour, extremely fresh fruity flavor for so old beer, taste of rasberries. Very fruity dessert beer. One of the last kegs in the world, thanks guys for this one out in RBESG05!

Draught at Plan B. Hazy red coloured with a light pink head. Aroma of raspberries with some sweetness and woody and acidic notes. Nice flavour with lots of raspberries and notes of wood and some acidic notes. Finish of berries and wood. Very balanced.
