saxo (13833) - HÝjbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle @ Summer Gathering, Ulfborg. Nice head with good duration. Color is ruby. Aroma and taste are pure raspberries and not at all artificial. Notes of malt and citrus as well, but pretty much just raspberries and very well done.

yngwie (13200) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle, 75cl, at TFODRBSG-12. A dense, deep pink head of finger-thick size sits on top of a deep red body. Lots of raspberries on the nose, pushing other aromas to the far back. If thereís any...Still, itís really pleasant. Itís full-bodied, quite tart, and with a high but pleasant level of carbonation. Some sweetness in the flavor, but mostly itís sourish berries, raspberry that is. Besides the raspberries thereís not much else going on flavorwise. Itís certainly one dimensional, but damn pleasant anyway. 120818

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2012
Reddish-brown colour. No head. Rich raspberry jam aroma. Lots of sugar. Jammy and fruity and light malts underneath. Well made, if not something I would drink all that often.

brokensail (10641) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 3, 2011
A: The pour is a deep dark red color with a tall pink head that dies down after a minute or so. S: An intense raspberry aroma, sort of as expected. There is a little bit of grass to it and some other fruit notes, perhaps some cherry skins. Itís got an almost fruit wine sort of smell to it. T: Very sweet with lots of raspberry flavor. Thereís a bit of banana ester in the background and perhaps a hint of chocolate. Lots of berry sweetness, almost like raspberry jam. A tiny bit of grass on the mid-palate. M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. O: Iím not always the biggest fan of beers like this, but it isnít quite as cloying as some others.
