Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 6, 2011
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.

dynamiteninja (1625) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2011
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.

taganaya (39) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2012
Cask at the paramount, Manchester. First raspberry beer I’ve ever had that wasn’t pink. Instead pale gold with white head. Aroma is strongly raspberry and fairly artificial. Taste is mediocre pale beer with raspberry flavour.

sebletitje (7029) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2012
50cl bottel from Beer City, BB 03/2013, batch # 2844. Dorée claire, col blanc crémeux. Arôme de framboise, malt léger pointe d’amertume houblonnée assez terreuse. En bouche, malt léger, cara/grillé avec une pointe de framboise, houblon amer dans un profile de Saaz. La framboise est présente mais reste assez en retrait, et on se retrouve en final face à une bière anglaise typique qui profile d’un rajout fruité. Fini conserve cette amertume houblonnée avec juste cette pointe fruitée. Reste facile à boire, et au contraire des nombreuses bières belges, cette dernière ne se met pas comme objectif d’utiliser 30% de sucre pour faire passer le profile des fruits.

brownyonder (266) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 20, 2011
Poured a very pale yellow with almost no head. The aroma was overwhelmingly of raspberries. Tasted of raspberries unsurprisingly, with a little hop.

anders37 (18184) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2012
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.

dogbomb (996) - ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle. Straw with a thinnish white head. Nose is raspberries, raspberries and raspberries. Taste is... well it’s raspberries again. The description says "delicately infused"... I say "***loads of raspberries". It’s alright, but it’s a bit overly fruity for me. There’s a little bit of bitter kick, but not enough. This beer is so raspberry laden, it should be pink. It isn’t, so that’s it’s saving grace.

justm (164) - Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2011
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.

Beersiveknown (3521) - NORTHERN IRELAND - NOV 29, 2011
cask @ belfast beer fest 2011. Amber beer with sickly raspberry aroma. tastes of raspberry squash and not much else. not for me.
