3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Appellation Wines.
Appearance - cherry to damson. A thin head which is pink but then it’s gone.
Nose - raspberry but not much else really.
Taste - the same again.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry yet somehow fructose sweet finish.
Overall - when something other than malt or hops or yeast is dominant then the beer is rendered one dimensional. I’m talking to you coffee stout for example.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from systembolaget. Pours hazy red with a thin, light-pink head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet, fruity, red berries (raspberries!), candy-ish. Taste is really sweet, berries, like raspberry soda with some added alcohol that especially shows in the aftertaste. Medium body, medium carbonation. Way too sweet and really not my cup of tea!

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a ruby colour with a white/pink head. Slight aroma of raspberries and malt. The raspberries are quite prominent in the flavor with a dry wheat malt finish. A very sweet FMB. Better than its commercial counterparts.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a nice fruit beer with actual beer character and tastes like they used actual fruit in the brewing process. It is slightly hazy w/ a sheen of pink to its amber brown color. It’s head is small, of fine bubbles, and fairly short lived. The nose here is malty w/ a touch of raspberry but a bit of tartness once you taste it helps the raspberry to pop. This is full bodied but only slightly sweet w/ a bit of a prickle from the carbonation. I unfortunately picked this up after it’d been in bottles for a while but it seems like age might have done it some good as far as the base beer coming through. I’d like to try this brand fresh sometimes but if you still seeing bottles of this around in the fall, go ahead and pick some up. It’s still good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From 12 oz bottle. Pours a clear ruby/cerise with a fluffy pink head that subsides pretty quickly. Nose is fresh raspberry with lemon and hints of pepper and flowers. Taste is brightly fresh raspberry throughout although some funk and lemon wander through. Tart, clean finish with a light fruity aftertaste. Good stuff.

Bottle at home. Pretty pink pour. Aroma of raspberries. Very nicely balanced, sweet and tart. Sweeter than tart on the finish. Fruity and perfumey. My wife loved it.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a murky looking light red / purplish color with a little bit of light-pink head. Fruity aroma with light malts and hints of corn. Wow, taste is very well balanced. Nice and sweet with berries and malts and just enough tartness to not make it overwhelming. Very nice. Mouthfeel is close to oily with medium body and avg co2 levels.
