DruncanVeasey (7249) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2010
Bottle from Arden Wines. Clear red with a slim pink collar. Neat confectionary sweetness giving way to some tea-like and fresh fruit aroma. Sweet with traces of countering dryness; jam, pips and cherry drops. Ladybeer of the added-fruit-juice variety, no doubt; but a superior one without the ruining sweetener of so many of its Belgian counterparts.

pharkanklaus (34) - KBH N, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2010
Bottle from fish’n beer. Poors dark-pink small head. Heavy nose of sour raspberry. The mouth sweet and the sour doesn’t dominate until the finish - and then some. The malt is just a base and the hops is not present in this refreshing and delicious beer .

sactodd (18) - Citrus Heights, California, USA - MAY 10, 2010
Pours a reddish hue with medium foam pinkish head. Definite aroma of raspberries, but not completely overwhelming. Starts crisp and light with carbonation, then moves to the raspberry flavor. First sweet then finishes with a light tart hit. Nice fruit to this ale.

rane (906) - Nibe, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2010
Bottle. I had this one as a welcome drink, and as such it´s perfect. Nice looking red beer with very little head. Aroma sweet and lots of raspberry, so much summer hidden in one beer. Taste sweet prickling rapsberry.

Zantetsuken (10) - USA - MAY 6, 2010
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 (6106) - 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.
