DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2011
Cask handpull, The Craven Arms Inn, Appletreewick, North Yorkshire, 20/04/11. Innocuous pale ale looks with a low white head and ruff. Fake raspberry and pavlova aroma- 5. Raspberry sweet taste- all fakeness and no fruit with rescuing licks of bread and biscuit. Dire, comical, slightly poisonous- can’t believe how highly it’s scored by previous raters, but each to their own.

harrisoni (12675) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2010
Cask gravity at Kent BF 2010. Lovely aroma of fresh raspberry doesn’t continue into the flavour where the fruit and the golden ale do battle for sweetness and dryness at the same time.

madmitch76 (13417) - , Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2010
15th July 2010. Chelmsford Beer Festival. Clear gold beer, little white suddy head. Quite remarkable nose - as soon as the beer started to pour an aroma of fresh raspberries cut through all the stale beer, sweat and burger smells of the festival and pervaded everywhere - really top notch! Light dry palate. Fresh tart raspberry but a light presence of it - nothing like as intense as the nose. The raspberry turns sweeter before a very dry finish and a slightly hop bitter aftertaste.

ladnewton (1325) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2010
Cask at the CASK Pub & Kitchen on 29th June 2010. Gold with a white diminishing head. Exquisite strong very real raspberry aroma then intricate bouquet of floral hop in main kick. The two flavours work in harmony, not discord, and a very pleasant endtaste ensues on a smooth to light mouthfeel.

Svesse (5898) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2010
(Cask at The Rake, Southwark, London, 22 May 2009) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity nose with lots of raspberries and notes of citrus and biscuity malt. Fruity taste with raspberries, biscuity malt, grass and a touch of citrus. Light body and fairly dry. It’s a bit weird but it works quite fine.

Ethereal (2409) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Cask at the Rake, 28th April 2010. Clear orange with a line of head. Raspberry aroma. In the mouth, the sweet raspberries are balanced by a dry hop flavour. Definitely one for the sweeter toothed. Pretty quick finish. Overall a bit of a novelty beer but Saltaire have done a good job on something that could be hideous.

downender (5924) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Bag O’Nails, Bristol 13/03/10. Deep gold with a slight white head. Slightly tart raspberry aroma, followed by flavours of biscuit malt and berry fruit. Finish was fairly dry. A decent fruit beer which avoided being too sweet.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2009
Cask in the market porter. Alround rating: Pale thin malt character, loads of raspberry but its not real raspberry as theres no colour and it taste fairly artifical, grassy and noteably bitter which doesnt suit a fruit beer. Drinkable all the same.

wyzzywyz22 (1890) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2009
Cask, Kings Arms, Salford. Yellowy gold with a medium white head. Sweet, saccharine, raspberry aroma. Flavour a pretty ill conceived sickly affair. Give me a Boon Framboise instead any day of the week chief.
