Red, mildly cloudy with pinkish foam. Candy, sweet raspberry in the aroma. Sweet, fruit, raspberry, with sweet muddy aftertaste. High in carbon.

bennetporter (262) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Pours a ruby from a bottle. Aroma is of fresh raspberry and strawberry jam. Flavor follows suit, but with a pleasant addition of toastiness from the malt. Breakfast in a bottle. Good beer.

Fin (8181) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle from Uto Beer, Borough Market, London, consumed at home Sunday 3rd May 2015 Rich red in colour with an almost pink head. Quite sweet to start but the freshness of the raspberries quickly comes though. Tart and tangy with a little muesli flavour, soft and smooth. Its very nice, my only real criticism is that it lurches into carbonated soft drink territory from time to time. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov14 3.4

Aroma of raspberry jam and general wheat ale. Taste is strong raspberry, then sweet caramel malts. After taste leaves a lingering sticky raspberry jam feeling. Its almost as if I put too much jam on a piece of toast and scarfed it down.

Lukasmh (460) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 27, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with slight pink head. Aroma is slight oxidated, raspberry, sweet malt and subtle tart notes. Do notice slight alcohol. Taste is really sweet and malty. The raspberries is there, but only very subtle tart fruitiness. Watery body.

Hazy, deep red .Medium-sized off-white head . Raspberries dominate in the aroma and taste . Malty sweetness balanced by light acidic notes. Finish is rather dry. Great ,fruit beer.

Cybercat (3877) - Georgia, USA - APR 22, 2015
Pours reddish copper with a fairly thick ivory head. Raspberry aroma reaches out and touches you from at least a half meter away; closer in, a bit of malt asserts itself. Slightly sour raspberry dominates the flavor, taking up the stage so malt can barely get your attention. I LOVE raspberries, but I like raspberry beer to have a little more of malt and even hops, merci, danke, gracias, arigato. Firm, fizzy texture leaves a decidedly raspberry finish. Hmmmmmm, what would raspberry wine be like?

The City Beer Hall, Albany, NY, draft. Very refreshingly tart. Could chug a gallon. Hardly a beer, but tasty all the same. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
