Aroma of pure raspberry, overpowering any other scents - refreshing but one-dimensional. Red like raspberry juice in appearance. Fizzy head, disappeared quite quickly, much like soda. Tastes like it smells - almost entirely of raspberry, sweet at the start and slightly bitter afterward. Palate is thin and sticky, light body, quite fizzy, and a lasting blend of sweetness and bitterness on the tongue. Overall a great beer if you like raspberries, but otherwise, stay away! Perfect for a summer afternoon.

It’s 92 out today. I just cut the lawn. this is the best to cut the heat. Wonderful raspberry aroma from a dark red pour with a big creamy pink head. I know how it sounds but the taste is great with raspberry tartness that really cuts the heat. I doubt I’d like this in November but right now it hits the spot.

DSG (5782) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 2, 2010
Bottle at a tasting. Thanks David Cohen. Clear red color with a small pinkish head. Sweet aroma of raspberries and some candy-ish notes. Sweet sugary raspberry candy flavor with light acidic hints in the back. The finish has a bit less sweetness and some light subtly hoppy hints. Medium-bodied.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 18, 2010
Purply pink with some baby pink head. Fully sweet slush puppy fruitiness. A tiny bit of tartness amongst the sweet syrupy fruit, light malty cereals are there but really play second fiddle. Fun but a bit childish.

unclemattie (4183) - Georgia, USA - APR 15, 2010
Heavy 50cL bottle. Pours a dark pink, cran-raspberry juice color with a light pink rose colored head. Heavy aroma of fresh pressed raspberry juice. Lots of juicy juice. Flavor has a slight touch of wheat deeply hidden below a huge blast of raspberry puree. Even a bit sryupy. Still a rich and bold fruit beer, a bit much. Both and very raspberry, finishes with a heavy bodied sweetness.

Reddish pour. Lots of sweet and ripe raspberries and jam on the nose. Flavor is sweet with some light tartness. Good for what it is.

Bottle. Pours golden in color with a pure white head. Light berry aroma overtop of standard pilsner notes. Good strawberry flavor, without being overpowering. Really refreshing.
