4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

bottle at home ... lovely crisp golden yellow ... big bubbly white head ... lots of raspberry from even a distance ... soft fruit hop ... soft raspberry light bitterness... aroma and looks tops the beer its self, but the beer is decent if a little bitter and ligth metalicness

3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
15th July 2010. Chelmsford Beer Festival. Clear gold beer, little white suddy head. Quite remarkable nose - as soon as the beer started to pour an aroma of fresh raspberries cut through all the stale beer, sweat and burger smells of the festival and pervaded everywhere - really top notch! Light dry palate. Fresh tart raspberry but a light presence of it - nothing like as intense as the nose. The raspberry turns sweeter before a very dry finish and a slightly hop bitter aftertaste.

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.

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.

Bottle at a ChrisO Tasting - London. Pours clear, very pale yellow with a fine, bubbly head. Quite a nice raspberry character in the aroma, thank you very much. Light to medium sweet flavor with fairly true raspberry notes and light doughy malts. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lots more raspberry to finish, fairly juicy, with light hay bitterness. Nice raspberry integration on this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
