RichardW (1656) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2011
Cask, Kiroswald Beer Fest. Extremely aromatic beer, strong fruit aroma from a good distance! Light golden appearance, sweetness blends in nicely with the bitterness of the beer, to make a really fresh-tasting summer beer that is all too easy to drink. Good balance and well-flavoured.

dynamiteninja (1654) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle. Thin white head which instantly dissipates. Crystal clear pale gold body. Aroma is of lots of fresh, ripe raspberries, with an undercurrent of honey and yoghurt. Very bitter from the fruit, with sweet undertones. Dry finish. Rather nice.

ladnewton (1569) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2010
Cask at the CASK Pub & Kitchen on 29th June 2010. Gold with a white diminishing head. Exquisite strong very real raspberry aroma then intricate bouquet of floral hop in main kick. The two flavours work in harmony, not discord, and a very pleasant endtaste ensues on a smooth to light mouthfeel.

jamesie1857 (1559) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2012
500ml bottle - found this more of a blonde than a fruit beer, yes it has a wee aftertaste and a bit of a raspberry aroma, but the beer is the hero here. Nice crisp golden, bit of a freshness at the end. Good.

Mr_Pink_152 (1557) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2014
500ml bottle from Morissons. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is raspberries, mild malts and some zestyness. Flavour is raspberries, malts, some slight zesty with a berry bitter finish.

danlo (1503) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear orangey golden colour, white bubbly foam head and aroma of sweet syrupy raspberry. Taste is fruity raspberry mixed with biscuity malt plus some chalky dry bitterness. Light bodied, medium carbonation, drying bitter finish. Quite OK.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2011
Bottle@Home. Artificial aroma but not too bad. Surprising blond, white head, good lace. Sweetish, raspberry, light bitter. Quite balanced and not really artificial. Not bad actually.

sdmmb (1146) - USA - JUN 9, 2014
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

dogbomb (1006) - ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle. Straw with a thinnish white head. Nose is raspberries, raspberries and raspberries. Taste is... well it’s raspberries again. The description says "delicately infused"... I say "***loads of raspberries". It’s alright, but it’s a bit overly fruity for me. There’s a little bit of bitter kick, but not enough. This beer is so raspberry laden, it should be pink. It isn’t, so that’s it’s saving grace.

edsspoon (704) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2015
Bottle - amber with a thin fizzy beige head. Aroma of blackcurrant, blackberries and grass. Taste of raspberries, blackberries and a little blackcurrant. Slight sourness, a little grass and hay and a light bitterness to finish. Light body, medium carbonation.
