3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at RBBWG 2016 in Antwerpen, 2015 version. Slightly hazy, red amber with a tan head. Sweetish, slightly fruity aroma of raspberries, sweet cherries, rose hips and some vanilla. Sweetish, slightly sourish and fruity taste of raspberries, strawberries, sweet cherries and almond, followed by a short, slightly bitter, moderately tart finish. Thin to medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Very nice!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thank you for sharing ElManana+1! 660 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBWG V. 2015 version. Pours a very deep raspberry pink, little pink head. Nose is huge raspberry jam, syrup, similar akin to cheap raspberry cookie filling. Taste is same cheap raspberry cookie filling & raspberry jam, very sweet,… Solid body. This is more akin to candy than actual fruit, I like it but it is also a bit too candy & artificial-like to fuly embrace & like but I did enjoy it.

Sampled from bottle @ RBBWG 2016. A bit hazy reddish color, virtually no head. Sweetish, floral aroma. Taste red fruit, raspberry, perfumy again and tart. Don’t like it. Definitely couldn’t finish a bottle on my own.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
22oz bottle from Beer Gonzo. It pours a clean ruby color with minimal tan head. Aroma is sweet and syrupy with huge loads if raspberry marmalade. Hard to pick up anything else. Taste is all of the same, massive amounts o sugars and syrupy raspberries. Light booze. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, easily a drain pour, undrinkably sweet.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
as founders blushing monk 2015. clear red to amber, small light red head.
strong aroma of fresh red berries, raspberries, very slightly jam like, but like a very good delicate not-sweet raspberry jam.
Flavor is raspberries, faint malt, faint fruit peel, very fruity, quite tasty. Alc. is almost too much, but the fruit manages to take it without the beer getting cloying, but it is a close call. One of the best non-sour fruit beers i have had ( don’t fancy them much, they get too sweet and cloying)
