Towey1989 (1820) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2016
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.

imdownthepub (13246) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2016
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.

Theydon_Bois (16897) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2016
Keg at the Waterloo Tap, 04/08/16. Maroon with a crimson cap. Nose is tangy raspberry, bitter sweet berry notes, straw, raspberry pips, grains. Taste comprises raspberry jam, toasted grains, straw, pink berry fizz. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok for style, not too sweet.

The_Osprey (6362) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2016
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.

rlgk (18244) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2016
Draught at Waterloo Tap, London. Cloudy reddish ruby beer with a decent offwhite/pinkish head. Raspberry aroma, strawberries, caramel, some raisins. Fruity raspberry flavor, strawberries, sweetish, some caramel. Too sweet to be refreshing.

ManVsBeer (8697) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2016
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.

Travlr (21447) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Draft at Piccadilly Tap. Cloudy to murky purple color, scant head. Huge dusty raspberry aroma with a bit of black pepper. Taste is very sweet berries. Refreshing, good palate cleanser.

gegwilson (3207) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2015
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.
