3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle purchased at the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Deep red in colour with a pinkish coloured head, good retention, excellent lacing. The aroma has lots of raspberries, white sugar sweetness, a bit tart. The flavour is quite sweet with lots of raspberries, jam and juice, tart as well. Sweet mouthfeel, light body, medium carbonation. Finishes long and sweet with more raspberries. The raspberry flavour in this is nice. Never syrupy, actually tastes like real fruit.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet, similar to framboise but not as sour. Would be very nice poured over vanilla ice cream. Not sure I could drink an entire bottle.
