Keg at The Smithfield, Manchester (Blackjack) A clear red colour with a thin pink head. Aroma of raspberry, some grain, slight red berries and subtle lemon. Taste of tart raspberry, some sharp lemon, slight grain and jammy red berries. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A sweet and tart raspberry finish. No doubt fruity with tart raspberry dominating. Itís like juice but can tell itís a fruit beer. So well made, lovely.

Keg at The Brigantes Bar, York. Cloudy brown to red with pink head. Fizzed up tart raspberry flavours from the start, fresh and authentic and a light citrus sourness. The body is medium but it hardly matters here, itís all about the fruit. Very good.

Keg at Pigs Ear Richmond as Kirkstall Framboise. Brewed in Belgium and, at this time, one of the top 50 fruit beers in the world according to Ratebeer dot com. Opaque dark purple, scummy white head with a pink hue. Aroma is intense raspberry tart. I could list other raspberry products as comparators, but youíve already got the point. Body is fairly smooth, tingly carbonation, quite smooth. Taste is raspberry sorbet in a big way, FAB lollies. A bit syrupy, but the carbonation helps here, for a change. Has all the obvious syrupy raspberry fruit, some vanilla and creamy vibes too. I canít help but like this even if itís too sweet by my usual standards.

Keg @ Black Swan, Leeds. Deep cherry red with a frothy head. I have to agree with the guy that served it me. Very fruity, not s session ale, but a good pick-me-up after a lot of hoppy ales. Belgian in style but not quite up to continental standards.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg in Brigantes, York. Pours a cloudy thick deep red with a thin layer of cream froth. Sharp raspberry at first which is really pleasant, but thereís a strong perfumy edge that lingers in the finish and reminds me a lot of parma violets.
