4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a dark burgundy with very pink foam. The aroma is a full on blast of raspberry. Not much complexity but it does the raspberry really well. The taste? Hey more raspberry imagine that. I admit this is quite delicious if you like raspberries. The alcohol is also nonexistent, in fact it almost tastes a bit like drinking a 3% lambic. The body is quite full on this one as well.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells like crushed raspberries. Taste is a nice authentic raspberry juice but not as sweet as the aroma lets on. Still sweet mind you but has a bit of a bittering finish. Boozy finish as well. That detracts and makes it seem like it lacks balance. It is still dangerously drinkable, but doesn't even seem like a beer.

OK I thought this may up ending like a cough medine placebo. But no! This raspberry triple has some nice rounded raz notes and a fuzzy creamy palette. Mellow and pleasant on a summer afternoon after a day at the beach
An off-white pinkish foamy head finger deep wih a timid
blushing pink color
A lovely nose of guess what, raspberries!

Nice and complex. Aroma of raspberry and a little funk. Great dark red/mahogany color. Smooth and full palate with a slight sharpness at the end. Bold raspberry flavor without being too sweet. Hints of oak.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. 2015 vintage. At the Konttori, Tampere, Finland.
Ruby red color with a tiny pink head.
Sweetness, raspberries and booze in the aroma. It's like sweet raspberry liqueur. Way too sweet. The flavor is sweetness, raspberries, some müsli, malt, mild alcohol and some mild sourness. Way too sweet and boozy.

75 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori.
Pours clear red color with a small pink head. Sweet raspberries on the nose, some rose hip and mild sweet juicy notes and yeast. Sweet raspberries and sugar on the flavor, some alcohol comes through also. This is not as pleasant as I expected, too boozy and way too sweet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Wine-red pour with a frothy pink head. Aroma is all raspberries and sugar. Taste is similar - berry kool-aid with a very small amount of boozy heat. Not my thing, but done well.
