Great raspberry aroma, pleasant sweet fruitiness in the taste without the sour tartness that can dominate some fruit beers. Very drinkable.

Draught@Euston Tap, London. Deep red colour, small white head. Aroma is raspberries, some mild nuttyness as well as some wood. Flavour is raspberries, mild cherry stones, some nuttyness as well as some sweetness. Very refreshing tart and nice.

Purchased by the missus. Normally not my cup of tea but wow, what a lovely beer! It is a blinding red/pink with a tall white head, with a rich berry aroma and an equally rich taste. For the first time in a while I found myself buying a half of fruit beer.

dogbomb (930) - ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2012
Keg. Deep purple haze with a very thin pink top. Smells of fresh raspberries. In the mouth, pure raspberry juice and a nice amount of tart. Mellows out jar enough and settles into a pleasant malty raspberry coulis.

Rune (7775) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2012
Half pint on keg at Foley’s Cask Ale House in Leeds. Pink coloured patches at the surface. Cloudy dark-red coloured body. Tart and sweet berries to the nose. Taste of tart raspberries and sweet strawberries. Refreshing and cleansing (11.07.2012).

Keg. Bright red. Smell and taste are pure raspberry. Real raspberries--and not just fruit juice--have to be used to make this beer. It’s too good. My go-to beer in England. Highly impressed.

Nocturne (752) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2012
Keg at the Euston Tap, London. Emerges as a deep ruby red shade with a small head. Wonderful ripe, sugary raspberry aroma. Really packed with fruit. Taste almost lives up to the aroma. It’s lightly puckering but my palate must have been expecting a lambic level of sourness, and I did long for it initially. But after many mouthfuls I really acquired a taste for this English framboise.

JorgeLee (1154) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2012
Tap at the Euston Tap. Bright red colour. Amazing raspberry smell. Like alcoholic fruit juice, very heavy raspberry flavour, sweet. Very nice for half a pint, wouldn’t have fancied a whole pint. Lacked some of the sourer base you get from a really good Belgian framboise.

swoopjones (5666) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Draft at Euston tap, berry red pour, raspberry forward pour and flavor. Very berry. Fruit forward. Tasty beer. Again surprised that This is british

Nuffield (3665) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Rhubarb red. Compellingly fruity at all levels, from nose to finish. So easy drinking, though slightly medicinal in a nice way. Wonderful. (cask, York Tap, York)
