2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On cask at Cloisters. A blonde beer with a thin white head. Aroma of raspberry ripple ice-cream and caramel. Similar flavours, quite artificial, with caramel and a raspberry ice-cream chupachop quality. Mild carbonation and a little oily. Too artificial for me.

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.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a very pale yellow with almost no head. The aroma was overwhelmingly of raspberries. Tasted of raspberries unsurprisingly, with a little hop.

Cask gravity @ Battersea BF 2012. Pours a clear amber color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity fresh raspberry aroma. Fruity and slightly sweetish malty raspberry flavor. Has a fruity raspberry finish.

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Hit with a huge but almost artificial aroma of raspberries upon opening. Pours a promising pale gold colour with a very white heads that looks appetising but fades quickly. Taste is peculiar in that it reminded me of those drum-stick lolly sweets you can get with a slightly cloying aftertaste. Not entirely unpleasant but also not what I was hoping for, sadly.

A Mes rate. Cask handpull from Bar Fringe.
Pale gold with a good white head. Full of tart, synthetic raspberry. Nasty and artificial. What is it about the UK and fruit beers?

Cask, Kings Arms, Salford. Yellowy gold with a medium white head. Sweet, saccharine, raspberry aroma. Flavour a pretty ill conceived sickly affair. Give me a Boon Framboise instead any day of the week chief.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Gold with slight white head. The only good thing about this was the aroma which was raspberry through and through. The flavour was cheap and perfumed, Angel Delight type flavour, edging towards undrinkable.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask handpull, The Craven Arms Inn, Appletreewick, North Yorkshire, 20/04/11. Innocuous pale ale looks with a low white head and ruff. Fake raspberry and pavlova aroma- 5. Raspberry sweet taste- all fakeness and no fruit with rescuing licks of bread and biscuit. Dire, comical, slightly poisonous- can’t believe how highly it’s scored by previous raters, but each to their own.
