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

madmitch76 (15073) - , Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2010
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.

RichardW (1515) - 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.

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.

Leighton (10989) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2013
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.
