Bottle at Spuyten Duyvil in Brooklyn. Nose is raspberry jelly - very strong. The body is a a dark clear reddish brown. The taste is pretty plain, very smooth and refreshing. No taste of alcohol.

On tap at La Fine Mousse, Paris. Pours red with pink head. Fruity raspberry aroma. Sweet raspberry flavor, sour at the end. A bit artificial.

Man this is not good. Aroma is of raspberry candy syrup, almost no discernable beer character. Appearance is a reddish brown with a pink head that fades to nothing in a flash. Taste is worse than the aroma. Raspberry is initially ok then immediately turns to syrup and cloying sweetness. Palate seems dry until the sweetness takes over and it turns to cloying crap. I wouldn’t drink this again if you paid me.

Bottle. Murky pinkish purple color, off pink head. Nice raspberry aroma with subtle citrus and straw. Taste is very sweet and simple fruit.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 Rating #1000. Bottle. Pours a bright red with a good-sized, rosy pink head. Aroma is fresh raspberry, strawberry, wild strawberry, raspberry candy. Taste is a bit stuffy, semi-sweet. Raspberry, but also quite musty. Not that pleasant. Not much tartness or sourness. Palate is alright.

JBPortland (457) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Pours ruby red with large head. Nose is all berries, sweet. Taste is big sweet berries, sugary, syrup, candy, soda-like. Hardly tastes like drinking a beer. For the style, not bad, but not very enjoyable. Too sweet.

hopdog (8521) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Bottle. Poured a reddish/pinkish tinged color with a small sized head. Raspberries. Semi-sweet with a lighter tart finish. Somewhat artificial, but still somewhat enjoyable.

RexTalionis (2117) - FINLAND - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Pours dark orange in color with a small head. Raspberry juicy aroma with some funk too. Raspberries, sweet malty notes. A bit too sweet for my liking.

huge, sweet fruity flavor, almost candy-like. a touch of oxidation (old bottle). gorgeous red hued, cherry cola color, with a modest head. fruit and yeast esters prevail. soft malt flavor mixing with sweet/tart fruit flavor -- cherry/raspberry. the flavors compliment, though in the end the fruit leaves it’s lasting trace of flavor. utterly under rated brewery, fantastic beer. reading some of the super low ratings, i’m thinking, if those folks bit into a handful of organic raspberries at the farmers market, they’d remark, "too much raspberry flavor!" if you get anything but a clear pour, it’s because you didn’t decant correctly.
