2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle [as "Kasparus De Zoete Framboos", 5%] @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear orange amber color, virtually no head. Aroma is sweet, candy, very sweet lightly artificial red fruit. Taste is a bit weird. It has that sweet red fruit in it, but it also reminds me of the sort of weird bitter flavor you taste when you bite on a seed (not sure whether that is the correct word for it, but I mean what’s inside of most fruits like an apple for instance.) Anyway. Flavor doesn’t really please me though it’s not bad either. Weird one.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle. [European ’Tour de quitter’ or ’Trauerzug durch die Gemeinde der ausgeschiedenen Nachbarn’ part three: Netherlands - not eventuated, but I’ve been prepared]. Slightly cloudy amber colour with average to huge, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Sweet-ish raspberry aroma. Taste is bitter hoppy, moderately sweet raspberry background, a peppery spicy yeasty note; bitter and chalky finish. Nice raspberry note, slightly baffling accompanying flavours, not really useful for exposing the raspberry taste. Not a complete failure.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Kudo’s for Kasparus for not using artificial sweetners. This beer has the real taste of raspberry. Slightly sour and bitter, with some modest sweetness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle) Clear reddish mahogany with big white head. Aroma of raspberries. Light body with plenty of carbonation giving a great mouthfeel. Flavour is raspberries and sweetness (pleasant, not cloying like some fruit beers) with tartness and bitterness developing for a nice long tasty finish. Overall a very nice raspberry beer with a good balance of sweet and sour, some interesting bitterness and good raspberry taste. (Note - I left the yeast in the bottle.)

Bottle at Arends Nest. Clear reddish amber beer. Massive fluffy white head. Pleasant raspberry nose. Light palate, semi dry. Soft creamy malt with a nicely balanced fresh raspberry that is not acrid or oversweet. Finishes dry. Apart from being a little overdry - just a nice raspberry beer!
