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.

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.

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.

On handpull, pours a clear amber/gold. A strong raspberry syrup-like aroma. The raspberry is more subtle in the flavour, with a reasonable malt presense, and a light mouthfeel.

A Mes rate. Cask handpull from Bar Fringe.
Pale gold with a good white head. Full of tart, synthetic raspberry. Nasty and artificial. What is it about the UK and fruit beers?
