6th August 2010. GBBF.
Hazy gold beer with no real head. Light semi crisp palate. Unusual sweet raspberries and a little smoke. Finishes dry. Interesting!

Cask@GBBF2010. Golden colour, no head. Aroma is sweet candy, some fruits, nectar and mild notes of wood. Flavour is fruits, wood, earth, some mild toasted and smoked notes as well as quite much grassyness. Pleasant.

Cask (GBBF2010)
6 Smoky dusty raspberry aroma. 3 Pale orange, tiny head. 6 Sweet raspberry over a simple malt base 3 Soft palate, carbonation low. Oddly smoky finish. 11 Simple sweet fruity ale. Not my style, but nothing actually wrong with it.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2008
Cask, The Crown, Nuneaton. Dark gold lagery looks with a rim of white. Brazen raspberry juice aroma. Utterly dominated by added fruit juice, but not aggressively unpleasant. No hop or malt-derived flavours discernible. Smothering raspberry ripple sweetness without balance. It’s not proper beer, is it?

Cask, Wirral Food & Drink Festival. Extra points for paying homage to the banging Rose Batiste tune of the same name. Orangey gold colour, not much head. Sweetish raspberry flavour and aroma. I dig raspberries, so found this not without appeal.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2008
Cask (handpump) at the Smithfield, Manchester. Very pale straw/gold colour. Strong raspberry aroma and flavour - the pub had found it necessary to add a warning sticker saying "raspberry flavour" over the pump clip. Not a lot else. Plenty of fruit but it had a somewhat syrupy, synthetic feel. And, like many UK attempts at fruit beers, the fruit didn’t seem perfectly integrated with the underlying beer. Decent attempt but not quite there.
