dynamiteninja (1822) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Postern Gate (JDW), York. Golden bodu. Thin white head and excellent lacing. Blueberries, blackcurrant, strawberry, cherry, cascade hops. Bitter with sweet notes. Dry finish. A little gimicky, but still adds up to more than the sum of its parts.

wheresthepath (2121) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2012
[Cask at Chippenham BF] Murky pale amber. The brewer attempts to cover up a pretty average underlying bitter with raspberry leaves and late-arriving blackberries. It’s on the sweet side, a little cardboardy and pretty uninspiring. Not impressed. c5

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 26, 2012
Thanks to JohnRMurdoch for a half of this one, cask at The Three Judges. Copper coloured, fading white head. Aroma of berries mixed with wheat-like fruits. Blackberries, alright, joined by a fruity touch in flavour followed by a bittersweet support. Different and quite alright to drink (Glasgow, 12.04.2012).

UPDATED: APR 14, 2012 Cask @ The 3 Judges. Copper colour, reasonable head. Dry fruity malt aroma. Fruity berry flavour. Bitter aftertaste, well balanced.

Blackberry/ribena nose, ribena taste. Fruity, cardboard finish. Good but nothing special.

Gravity at Birmingham Beer Festival 2011. Thin. Fruity cardboard finish. Reasonable. Some hop maybe.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 18, 2011
[cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh] Slightly hazy golden beer with a decent white head. Slightly malty, fruity blackberry aroma – smells a touch like Ribena. Tastes a bit like Ribena too – nothing wrong with that, I guess – although I’ve heard how they make this. Still, that said, a decent and refreshing beer [14102011]

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 12, 2011
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of RIbena blackcurrant cordial, grassy hops and caramel. Similar flavours of blackberries, Ribena, caramel and alcohol. Mild carbonation with a mildly oily mouth-feel. Also a little bitter. Very nice.

Svesse (7849) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2011
(Cask at Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico, London, 23 July 2011) Golden colour with brief, white head. Fruity nose with citrus and blackberries. Fruity, slightly harsh taste with notes of blackberries, citrus and a slightly soapy malt character. Gentle bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain berry sweetness. Interesting and quite refreshing.

This is a good bitter with an obvious hint of backberries, very nice and very moreish
