2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Big tarty berry coulis aroma. Deep reddy brown colour, somewhat cloudy with a small head that dissipated quickly. Strong tart flavour of raspberries…however the taste is somewhat artificial and with an overpowering sweetness. Almost like it has been flavoured with cordial. Very bubbly mouthfeel with a cloying berry aftertaste. My mouth feels horrible after finishing the bottle. A disappointing beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 oz. bottle at Flat Rock Saloon. Poured deep ruby red with thin pinkish head. Tart raspberry flavor with some astringent flavors. Not nearly as big of a gap between this and other framboises (ie. Lindemans). Worth the discounted price.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Poured hazy red with little head. Aroma is clearly rapsberries, with soemthing else just apparent (biscuits, malt?). Palate is medium body with lively carbonation. Flavour is strongly raspberry, unfortunately it is a rather artificial raspberry taste - cordial, syrup. Also, whilst there is pleasant tart note, this beer is really to sweet, especially in the finish. Overall, it’s fine, except for the flavour which is too sweet and artifical - and of course, it’s the flavour that is most important - so disappointing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy red body with a medium foamy light pink head. Sweet raspberry aroma with some slight sugar. Sweet sugary flavor with candy raspberry flavor. Medium body with moderately high carbonation and a very sweet sugary finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Small pink head that mostly diminished, transparent, visible carbonation and a reddish hue. Nose was sweet, raspberries, sour and tart. Ditto for the flavor with a dry finish. Mouthfeel was dry. Medium body. True to style, but it was too sour and tart for my liking. Not one that I will seek out again.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to large sized purple hued bubbles that were and left behind a hazy typically carbonated red brown with a purple hue colored body and a fair lacing. The strong aroma was raspberry. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a mellow fruity aftertaste that soon fades. The nice flavor contained notes of raspberry. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours reddish pinkish, hazy, with a nice pink head. Aroma of raspberry syrup. Flavor is sweet, raspberry syrup, with a touch of woodsiness and faint beer floating in the finish. Not awful, just not serious. Thanks, maniac.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a murky red juice blend colour with no head. Nose of vibrant raspberry juice that dominates the nose. Initial taste of rich raspberries, more like a juice comparing syrupy texture. Moving into a tangy sour berry finish. Softly carbonated. Light to medium body. Very simple. but tasty!
