0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottled. Dark red, pink head. Sugary nose. Cloyingly mega-sweet, with flavours of sugar, syrup, sugar, syrup, syrup, syrup and syrup. I’m struggling to open my mouth. Help me!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
400 ml bottle. Deep reddish mahogany colour. Crystal clear. Tall light beige fine-laced head. Rich sweetish and fruity wort aroma. Malty. Sweet fruity sweetness upfront, but the body is light and balances out the initial sweetness. The raspberry show up more in the aftertaste. Not bad at all. Nice balance.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Small, yellowish head, shrinking double-quick; dark cola-colour of the bottle turns out to be 100% the beer... clear glass bottle, faugh! Molasses, sweet-fruity nose, raspberry essence and sweet drop. Sweet, again artificially raspberry flavour, with underlying dark malts, not fermented or hopped. Empty, syrupy palate, near-viscous. And now for the surprise. Despite the -1 for the bottle, and the scathing (well-deserved) comments on aromas and flavours, this "beer" is actually a near-perfect childrens’ drink - much more advisable than the industrial American-inspired concoctions usually to their disposal. Just not for me, please.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, courtesy of Pinball. A clear, brown beer topped by a beige head. Cola-like nose with candy and some wort. Cola in the form of winegum-cola bottles mostly. Caramel-sweet, slightly wort-like flavor with dark rye bread. Thin on the palate. Hmm, sort of reminiscent of a Danish hvidtøl, and not very good either, way too candyish. 090822

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2012 40cl bottle from a Polish shop in Slough. Reddish brown with a pink head; aroma of raspberry and malt; the flavour is a strange combination of sweet malts and sharp raspberry fruit - but somehow it works. Certainly different.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pink mid-sized head. Deep dark red barely translucent body. Fruity roasty aroma with raspberry notes is pretty faint. Dryish roasty caramel and raspberry taste, somewhat one-dimensional, but surprisingly harmonic. Some sweetness, too. Mid-bodied. Mild mouthfeel. Dryish fruity raspberry aftertaste with tart roasty notes. An odd one, this, but definitely drinkable. (0.4l bottle, Polonius, Oslo.)
