Bottle, The Beer Emporium, Sandbach. Poured a good head, lively in the glass, straw / blonde coloured with an aroma of soft fruit and malt. Nice medium dry hoppy flavour with soft malt and hints of raspberry. Good refreshing beer from the fridge.

Pint from York pub, golden lion I think. Light amber ale with white frothy head. Reeks of raspberries, like the raspberry icecream syrup. Taste is same, nice amount of bitterness to offset the sweet. Bit of a shock at first, but it grew on me as the slurps piled up.

Drunk from 500 cl bottle bought in Wakefield, UK. Pleasant contrast between the bitterness of the saltaire blonde beer and hint of raspberry flavour. Refreshing summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Rehills Newcastle. Pours golden colour with a hint of pink. Strong raspberry flavours (obviously), but a very nice beer after a big meal

dogbomb (943) - ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle. Straw with a thinnish white head. Nose is raspberries, raspberries and raspberries. Taste is... well itís raspberries again. The description says "delicately infused"... I say "***loads of raspberries". Itís alright, but itís a bit overly fruity for me. Thereís a little bit of bitter kick, but not enough. This beer is so raspberry laden, it should be pink. It isnít, so thatís itís saving grace.
