Leicester beer festival. Gravity. Quite clear for a wheat beer. Taste of raspberry is mainly at the end. Ok but a bit disappointing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (7938) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2013
Gravity dispense at the Happy Man, Englefield Green, Midlands BF, 15/03/13. Lightly hazed pale blonde with no head, not really a looker but she’ll do for me I guess! Nose is pale malt, raspberry cordial, berry fruits. Taste comprises raspberries, wheat tones, pale malt. Medium bodied, modearate carbonation, dry in the finish. Ok stuff, refreshing - more of a summer beer, very surprised that it’s 5.6% - no suggestion of an ABV level much above 3.5/4.

Pale gold beer with a thin head and very little aroma. Raspberry flavour is sweet but subtle and the aftertaste is pleasant in a similar way though it does go slightly more bitter. Not as sickly as some of these sorts of beers can be but not the nicest I’ve had either.

SarkyNorthener (1728) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2012
Cask@Lychgatetavern, Wolverhampton. Pale gold colour, small head. Aroma is mildly raspberry. Taste is bitter, wheat and a little raspberry. It has a dry finish and medium bodied. A good beer, not as fruity as I expected.

SaintMatty (5110) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2012
500ml Bottle - Hazy amber in colour. Malt, dried fruit and raspberries in the aroma. Fruity, dry and tangy taste with notes of tart raspberries, malt, grain and sultanas. Interesting and fairly refreshing.

Nilz (371) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 14, 2012
Cask at Ayrshire Real Ale Festival, aroma of raspberry of course; taste had some earthiness and a tart fruitiness with the bitter finish. Thought-provoking indeed, give it a try - though I was left a bit nonplussed.

Leighton (10534) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2012 Gravity cask at the Bree Louise, London. Pours clear, rich gold with no head. Definitely some raspberry in the nose. Light to medium sweet flavor, a bit of raspberry and straw. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lots of gaming - mostly Counter Strike. Lightly dry and not at all cloying to finish, with more pale malts and raspberry impressions. Pretty damn nice. (3.5)

Update, the day after writing this rate: I wrote this review after an evening of prodigious drinking and, to be honest, I have no idea what that Counter Strike reference is about. Apparently I was having an inner monologue regarding my secondary school gaming practices, answering the question: What first-person shooter games did you play? The answer, of course, would be Counter Strike.

Had this beer again some place, probably Bree Louise or some such. Pours clear, rich gold with no head (no head? Smacks of BR). Definitely some raspberry notes in the nose. Medium sweet flavor with straw first and foremost, then raspberry, some pale malts. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet to finish, lightly dry with decent raspberry character. Not at all cloying, which is nice. More pale malts in the aftertaste. Pretty nice in general. (3.4)

Cask at GBBF. Hazy gold beer. Light dry palate. Some sulphur in here but other than that - not bad! Crisp dry natural tasting raspberry, not strongly flavoured. Light sweet malt. Could have been pretty decent without the sulphur.

downender (6164) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2012
Cask-conditioned at the Nottinghamshire beer festival, Seven Stars, Bristol March 2012. Deep amber with a decent, off-white head. Sweet, berry fruit and grain aroma. Flavour had more sweet malts, a touch of raspberry and off-dry finish. Ok.

TheCametron (1751) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 26, 2012
Cask at HWBF. Orange with white head. Sweet above all. Definite fresh raspberry acidity with more of a false syrupy sweetness. Malty. I couldn’t drink very much of this.
