DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2009
Cask in the market porter. Alround rating: Pale thin malt character, loads of raspberry but its not real raspberry as theres no colour and it taste fairly artifical, grassy and noteably bitter which doesnt suit a fruit beer. Drinkable all the same.

Svesse (5855) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2010
(Cask at The Rake, Southwark, London, 22 May 2009) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity nose with lots of raspberries and notes of citrus and biscuity malt. Fruity taste with raspberries, biscuity malt, grass and a touch of citrus. Light body and fairly dry. It’s a bit weird but it works quite fine.

TheCametron (1592) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 6, 2011
Cask at Cloisters. Golden with a very thin white head. Big raspberry nose. Immediate palate is of a standard cask gold ale. Subsides to a quite nice raspberry afterthought with a lingering tang. quite nice.

meerbier (1448) - 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.

rauchbier (3559) - 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.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 12, 2009
On handpull, pours a clear amber/gold. A strong raspberry syrup-like aroma. The raspberry is more subtle in the flavour, with a reasonable malt presense, and a light mouthfeel.

downender (5908) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Bag O’Nails, Bristol 13/03/10. Deep gold with a slight white head. Slightly tart raspberry aroma, followed by flavours of biscuit malt and berry fruit. Finish was fairly dry. A decent fruit beer which avoided being too sweet.

Bottle, The Beer Emporium, Sandbach. Poured a good head, lively in the glass, straw / blonde coloured with an aroma of soft fruit and malt. Nice medium dry hoppy flavour with soft malt and hints of raspberry. Good refreshing beer from the fridge.

77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2013
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.
