teorn88 (1923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2013
Cask at CPK, London. It pours pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is huge on the raspberry notes. Some funk, not much else. Taste is bitter with resiny hoppy notes and some light fruitiness. Mouthfeel is medium and good carbonation. Nice beer but it doesn’t really come throuh as one piece.

imdownthepub (10210) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Gold with slight white head. The only good thing about this was the aroma which was raspberry through and through. The flavour was cheap and perfumed, Angel Delight type flavour, edging towards undrinkable.

77ships (3763) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2013
500 ml. bottle @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Going over the ingredient list, it seems like this uses additives instead of real fruits. Pours very pale golden with a solid white head. Smell is raspberry but not as in the fruits itself, like raspberry jam with some raspberry syrup, more additives, very fruity, quite nice like raspberry cookies. Taste is bit of a downer, light malts and yeast, pale, mellow and artificial with some citrus, light grass bitterness, light, touch tin with artificial, fake raspberry with some pits & additives, bit bland & pale with some white sugar & traditional artificial sweetened drink vibe. Touch flatter. I suppose as good as something like this is bound to get.

wimpyjoe (3862) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2013
Mostly clear but slightly clouded yellow coloured ale, no head so looks a bit flat. It has a huge sweet raspberry aroma and this is obviously carried through to the taste, but not to the same extent, still it remains fruity. The most striking part of its character is its weak thin body.

jamesie1857 (1389) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2012
500ml bottle - found this more of a blonde than a fruit beer, yes it has a wee aftertaste and a bit of a raspberry aroma, but the beer is the hero here. Nice crisp golden, bit of a freshness at the end. Good.

worldbeertaste (1635) - AUSTRIA - JUN 26, 2012
Smells of blackcurrant, and raspberry, and a strong overall berries. Smells chemical. Clear gold with a lacy white lasting head. Pale. Stuckey thin body. Lager hops mixed with a sirup. Chemical and artificial. Carlsberg mixed with cheap fruit cordial. Strong aftertaste. Strangly you can drink it.

TheJestersBeer (2059) - SWEDEN - JUN 18, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a pale gold, with a white head. Fruity, citrusy aroma, raspberries, malt. Dry, light body, low bitterness, balanced CO2. Quite neutral taste, citrus, raspberries, wheat. Refreshing, maybe a bit bland. (2012-06-08)

sebletitje (6678) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2012
50cl bottel from Beer City, BB 03/2013, batch # 2844. Dorée claire, col blanc crémeux. Arôme de framboise, malt léger pointe d’amertume houblonnée assez terreuse. En bouche, malt léger, cara/grillé avec une pointe de framboise, houblon amer dans un profile de Saaz. La framboise est présente mais reste assez en retrait, et on se retrouve en final face à une bière anglaise typique qui profile d’un rajout fruité. Fini conserve cette amertume houblonnée avec juste cette pointe fruitée. Reste facile à boire, et au contraire des nombreuses bières belges, cette dernière ne se met pas comme objectif d’utiliser 30% de sucre pour faire passer le profile des fruits.
