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.

dogbomb (1143) - ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle. Straw with a thinnish white head. Nose is raspberries, raspberries and raspberries. Taste is... well itís raspberries again. The description says "delicately infused"... I say "***loads of raspberries". Itís alright, but itís a bit overly fruity for me. Thereís a little bit of bitter kick, but not enough. This beer is so raspberry laden, it should be pink. It isnít, so thatís itís saving grace.

Next to no head raspberries dominate well rounded but something synthetic about the taste bottle.

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.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2009
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?

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2009
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.

imdownthepub (12684) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2013
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.

Nice clear colour. Over riding taste of Ski Raspberry Yogurt. Wouldnít chuck it away though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
