saxo (13852) - Højbjerg, 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 (13350) - 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 there’s any...Still, it’s really pleasant. It’s full-bodied, quite tart, and with a high but pleasant level of carbonation. Some sweetness in the flavor, but mostly it’s sourish berries, raspberry that is. Besides the raspberries there’s not much else going on flavorwise. It’s certainly one dimensional, but damn pleasant anyway. 120818

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.
