3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, from Hogsback store, at JF’s Calcutta Cup mini tasting - 02/02/13.
Hazed crimson with a thin white head that clears to bubbles around the edge.
Nose is slightly soured raspberries, light sugar, Ribena, raspberry syrup.
Taste is tarte raspberries, some sugars, light mineral tones.
Medium bodied, spritzy carbonation, sweet in the finish.
Ok for what it is - bit of a palate cleanser and probably refreshing on a hot summers day/BBQ.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.33l bottle. This is a cloudy hard to describe the color of one. Ehm, deep amber with a pinkish hue? Only a small off-white head with the same pinkish hue. It smells artificial fruity with lime and traces of raspberry bubblegum. Wheat sweetness also detected here. Not horrible. Slightly acidic-sour, or tart is a better word to describe the flavors here. Wheat sweetness detected, but the sourness overwhelms pretty much everything. Raspberry sourness of course. Thin and only in the mouth with a above average carbonation level. Grows on you, but definitely no masterpiece. 06.06.2014

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml Bottle from Whole Foods Market, Giffnock (£1.99):
As expected, raspberries dominated this one throughout but there was also some nice tart & sourness coming through alongside some funky flavours. It reminded me of a lambic in places & it wasn’t a bad smell to open things up. The taste wasn’t the best though, it seemed weakened when compared to the nose & was quite average really. Not a beer I’d have again but it was interesting to try at least without ever really exciting.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pretty disappointing. Very generic, really, and barely any detectable raspberry. Slightly sour. That’s about it.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.33 bottle. Very hazy, compote-colored liquid with virtually no head. Heavy aroma of fermented fruits - apples, pears, and raspberries - which hide almost everything else. Sour, fruity taste with a ton of fruits. Light to medium body, slick/thin texture, and a lively carbonation. Finish is medium long, sweet’n’sour or rather sour’n’sweet. Overall the brew is relatively bad, although it could be refreshing when served cold.

Pours a nice medium red colour. On the nose sour berry. Tastes of red berries....very sour red berries with a short bitter aftertaste. Not particularly pleasant.
