3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2009 Bottle. Reddish with a pink head. Lovely aroma of raspberries and sweetness. Flavour is full of raspberries too and has such a good balance between sweetness and sourness. Oh, so drinkable! Re-rating (before 8-4-8-3-16). Added to flavour: Light tartness, less raspberriy in flavour than aroma, sparkling, citrus and a light dryness. Nice sommerbeer because of the lightness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 5%. Nice, sweet raspberry aroma with an acidic finish. Almost clear prune red colour, small head. The flavour starts off with a lot of raspberry. Later, it turns bitter, as if from the berries or seeds. Finishes on a nice, woody, berry bitterness. Both the aroma and flavour have a little butter. Not sour or acidic. Solid.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(375 ml bottle at The Rover, Göteborg) Shady brown color, small creamy tan head. Sweet wild raspberry scent. Acidic fruity taste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness. Quite allright, but nothing really special.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to hopdog for breaking this goodie out at the tasting...
Appears a transparent pink-toned red with a small white cap that slowly fades into a small cloud spirals. Light lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of cran-raspberry juice with freshly mashed berries that are evident from the first inhale. I found it to be really quite addictive.
Taste is of creamy vanilla, fruit punch, and rasperry with cranberries resounding in a slightly tart flavor.
Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied, vinuous, and semi-dry on the finish.

Bottle. Poured a reddish-brown color with a small sized red/pink head. Aromas of fresh-juicy-hairy raspberries, cranberries, and also reminded me of Kool-Aid (in a good way!). I really like the berry quality in the aromas. Tastes of tart raspberries, all around berries, and some wood. Lightly tart finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a hazy, ruby red color with a small, pinkish head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of fresh raspberries, borderlining on cranberries, with a bit of light funk, low wild yeast presence. Taste of more raspberries, very fruity, with light vanilla, oak, and a tart, dry finish.
