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.

RichardGretton (4379) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2012
Bottle. Pale golden beer with a light head. The aroma is fruity raspberry, and the flavour has a bitter finish with a raspberry fruity hopped body. Overall a reasonable fruit flavoured bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rauchbier (3645) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle, from Morrisons, Scunthorpe. Gold, thin shortlived white head and gentle condition. Dominant raspberry fruitiness in the nose that strangely becomes very soft and muted in the mouth, its still there but allows the sweet maltiness to create a delicately pleasing mouthfeel, finish is again muted but a gentle sweet raspberry note lingers.

teorn88 (3551) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2013
Cask at CPK, London. It pours pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is huge on the raspberry notes. Some funk, not much else. Taste is bitter with resiny hoppy notes and some light fruitiness. Mouthfeel is medium and good carbonation. Nice beer but it doesn’t really come throuh as one piece.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 6, 2011
On cask at Cloisters. A blonde beer with a thin white head. Aroma of raspberry ripple ice-cream and caramel. Similar flavours, quite artificial, with caramel and a raspberry ice-cream chupachop quality. Mild carbonation and a little oily. Too artificial for me.
