3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Craft Beer Co Islington. It pours hazy deep red with a quickly dissipating white head. The nose is tangy, raspberry jam, sherbet and candy. The taste is initially tart, sour red berry, sherbet, sharp lemon and Granny Smith apple with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Good sweet-sour balance. Not a whole lot to it but rather delicious and utterly drinkable!

Craft Clerkenwell. Almost clear deep red beer, residual pale pink head! Palate is crisp and dry. Lightly tart raspberry jam! Flirts with being sour but never follows through. Finishes semi dry and crisp. One dimensional raspberry beer but a tasty one.

Keg in CBC Islington. Colour is bright red/pinkish with a small white head which dissipates to nothing. Nose is very sweet syrupy raspberry. In fact it’s lots of raspberry jam. Taste is thankfully lighter. Raspberry jam, but had some nice acidic sourness which takes the edge off the sweetness. Body is also light which helps.

Hazy red-amer color with small head. Aroma of raspberries, what else? A bit sour and jammy, whiff of acetic acid. Light body; highly carbonated; some fruits, but the mouthfeel is very dry and the acidity very high, too much, without balance; lemony final.
It probably evolved in the wrong direction in these last months.
