A nice purple/color with a pink head. Raspberry is dominant in aroma. Taste is slight citrus but like aroma, raspberry is dominant. A good flavored beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear deep ruby red with one finger of rocky pink head, great retention, moderate lacing. (4/5) Nose is strong raspberry and other red berries, some wild yeast funk. (7/10) Taste is strong sweet, stronger tart sourness. (7/10) Medium body, high to moderate sustained carbonation, tart finish. (4/5) Surprisingly good, given the high levels of sweetness - itís so tart that the sweetness never becomes cloying, and the high to moderate carbonation keeps it from becoming too syrupy. Fairly simple flavours, all things considered, but quite pleasant and mouth-puckeringly tart. The intense raspberry flavour never comes across as artificial or medicinal. Quite enjoyable despite being a little unidimensional. Seems like it could be an interesting base or float for mixing something else, like a chocolate stout, perhaps? The low ABV makes this a perfect ďanytimeĒ drink, if you donít mind the price tag. (15/20)

750 ml corked bottle. Pours a cloudy purple color with with a rocky pink head. Aroma is all funky raspberry beret, the kind you find in a second hand store. Sweet raspberry jam flavor with that yeasty Lindeman funk. Itís all about the raspberries and wild yeast! Nothing more.

So raspberries right.... Theyíre like a fruit... This tastes like raspberries.... Itís pretty much like raspberry juice mixed with like a tiny amount of beer..... Itís weird because I feel like itís simple enough that I want to hate it, but itís delicious and my first limbic and Iím drunk already and itís good.....

Bottle. Glorious, full aroma of raspberries right off the top. Tantalizing. Appearance is deep red, like someone squeezed a handful of raspberries into your flute. Taste is immediate, a strong punch of raspberry with very little aftertaste or additional muddying elements. Strong flavour, very little alcohol followthrough. Palate is nicely "meaty," for lack of a better word, with plenty of texture to toy with. This is one of my favourite items, a delicious departure from the everyday.

750ml ($9.99) very sweet with lots of tartness. a good drink if youre not looking to get drunk or buzzed. at 2.5% this is on the far weak side, lady drink if youre delicate. great to spike as the sweetness and tartness will hide just about anything.

Butelka; barwa ciemnego rubinu. Aromat słodko-kwaśny, owocowy, malinowy, winny. W smaku słodkie, malinowe, cukierkowe, a nastepnie kwaśne. Goryczka niska. Bardzo orzeźwiające.

Really good and fruity. Pours as dark as a juice with a nice foamy head. Very goof for sipping around dessert.
