Looks like sparkling cranberry juice. With a pink frothy head that dissipates quickly. The flavour is much more juice than beer. Quite refreshing but a lack of alcohol flavour.

Bottle - plum red with a light pink fizzy head. Okay retention and some weak lace. Aroma of raspberry juice, wild flowers, grass. Taste is of raspberries, grass, earth, light tartness and a little soil in the finish. Medium body, medium carbonation.

500 ml bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy reddish purple color with a small pinkish head that doesn’t last. The aroma and flavor have raspberry jam, some tart character, light pale malts, not much else, just a bit more bang than the cherry version.

KoNrRiI (767) - Århus, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2015
0.355 bottle. Clear, dark crimson color and a small, reddish head. Aroma of raspberries, grass, citruses, and a hint of sugar. Taste is obviously very sweet and fruity though it has the sourness typical for raspberries too. Medium body, slick texture, and average carbonation. Finish seems very genuinely raspberry-like, kudos. Overall a standard but well-made fruit beer.

GuideDogSaint (813) - Xiamen, CHINA - JAN 10, 2015
550ml bottle at Beer Station, Xiamen. Pours hazy red brown with a dissipating white head. Can get the raspberry aroma from a mile off. Just immense raspberry with some sourness. Nice.

Theydon_Bois (12747) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle at the Anchor Tap, 03/01/15. Cherry red with a decent crimson covering. Nose is raspberry syrup, light straw, faint smoke, light cherry and red berry notes. Taste comprises raspberries, sweet notes, berry pulp. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet close. Decent enough fruit beer, better than I’d expected, if a little sweet overall!
