Svesse (6080) - 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 (2417) - 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 (6246) - 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 (1961) - 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.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 12, 2009
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.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2009
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?
