yespr (30631) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2007
75 cL bottle, thanks to Myrup. Pours hazy red with a lacing head. Clean raspberry, slight citric, acidic and sweet. Flavour is quite citric and berry fruity. End is soft into dry. Wow.

Ungstrup (29017) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2007
Bottled. An unclear dark red beer with a thin pinkish head. The aroma is sweet with notes of red berries, while the flavor is sweet yet with an acidic edge from the raspberries.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of sliffy. Pours a slightly hazy, warm, reddish with a small, pinkish head. Very distinct and intense raspberry aromas. Quite full-bodied with distinctly sweet raspberry accents - unfortunately a little chemical and soapy in the finish with also some acidity. No hop presence though. Too much of a good thing really. 280907

joergen (20476) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2007
Bottle. Hazy red coloured with a light pink head. Sweet aroma dominated by raspberries. The flavour is dominated by raspberries with notes of hops and light acidic notes. Hoppy finish. The raspberries are very dominating. but still quite good.

Hazy dark red beer. Short lived thin pink head! Aroma of raspberries, a little sour. Dry crisp palate. Immediate tart raspberry, although it mellows to a degree - this flavour dominates throughout. Very dry crisp finish, leaves a warming afterglow. Just the right side of being too puckery.

bu11zeye (11925) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a ruby body with a small pinkish head. Aroma of raspberries, alcohol, and wheat. Flavor of tart raspberries with a lightly sweet finish. Alcohol is nicely covered up in the flavor.

argo0 (11316) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 15, 2008
(22oz bottle) Crystal clear pink-red body topped by medium off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, berry (raspberry, blueberry, and light blackberry), syrup. Taste is sweet, but the raspberry has the attendant astringency that is absent from the aroma. Some alcohol presence hints at the ABV. Medium-full body, low carbonation.

Bottle from ericandersnavy. Thanks very much for this one! Pours very dark ruby with a light pink head. The aroma is fresh raspberry. Medium body with mild carbonation. Primary flavor is raspberry. Somewhat tart. Could be a bit of detectable malt. Finish is all raspberry and raspberry seed for bitter. Just slightly acidic after awhile.

Leighton (10405) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2011
Bottle from 2008 at the Funky 6. Pours a hazy, deep red with a medium, pinkish head. Holds a strong, sweet aroma dominated by raspberries. Flavor is fairly sweet with lots of berries, citric hoppiness, light acidic tartness. Medium to full in body with soft to average carbonation. Warming, sweet finish with lingering raspberries and slight tartness. Very nice beer.
