maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2013
Bottled 20/08/13. A hazy light orange coloured beer with barely any head. A pleasant raspberry fruity aroma. Fruit in the mouth is a bit harsh which can be typical of English fruit beers. Manageable enough but a bit disappointing.

sebletitje (8116) - 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.

DruncanVeasey (7854) - NUNEATON, TOP, 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.

Svesse (7262) - 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.

downender (7253) - 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.

MesandSim (7118) - 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?

ManVsBeer (6461) - 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.

77ships (6129) - 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.
