Cask at Ealing beer festival 2014. A straw coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Big raspberry aroma. Tastes of raspberry, fruity, zesty. Lovely and refreshing fruit beer.

RichardGretton (4240) - 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

teorn88 (1923) - 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.

Bottle. Blonde with fruit flavours that dominate. Medium body. Bit of a novelty but still quite reasonable.

stravale (2075) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - OCT 23, 2013
Cask @ The Benjamin Huntsman, Sheffield [161013]
Golden blonde, clear, dense white head, some lacing
Aroma - Nice really fresh real raspberry aroma, really fresh, no artificial notes
Taste - Fresh raspberry, not too much, some raspberry bitterness too, light pale malts underneath, good stuff
Palate - Light body ,quite sweet palate. Finish as main flavour, little bitter linger. perhaps a tad over bitter here
Overall - Biased with this rate as I really like raspberry and they were real in here, even with a bitter edge you get from the seeds. It might benefit from a tiny hint more sweetness in the malt background

s_hartshorne (1253) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle asda. Clear golden amber colour thin white head bits of lacing. Aroma is v good raspberry yoghurt. Taste is biscuit spice and hops with a creamy raspberry bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Overall a good beer I would have liked more raspberry in the taste although it dose advertise subtle flavours.

I don’t normally enjoy flavoured beers but decided to try this one because Saltaire’s other brews are excellent. To my surprise it was very good, will definitely try again.

Beth101 (531) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2013
Golden in colour with a large head and lacing on the glass. Has a lovely raspberry aroma when pouring. Has a fairly bitter taste compared to the very sweet aroma. Tastes of hops and raspberrys and is quite refreshing. A nice summer drink.

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

Pint from York pub, golden lion I think. Light amber ale with white frothy head. Reeks of raspberries, like the raspberry icecream syrup. Taste is same, nice amount of bitterness to offset the sweet. Bit of a shock at first, but it grew on me as the slurps piled up.
