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.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

This is one of those beers thatís well enough made, itís refreshing and tasty to enjoy, but sometime it doesnít feel like Iím drinking beer. I wonder how this would taste as a black and tan with Oakshire Espresso Stout? Anyway, poured reddish/pink with a pink head. Fresh respberries on the nose. Soda pop like in palate and sweetness with nothing but raspberries all the way through. The good thing about this one is that it didnít come off totally medicinal like other similar fruit beers.

Pours dark red; thick even pink head. Very fruity aroma. Lots of raspberry of course. Lots of fruity raspberry flavor also, very drinkable. Not sure if itís real raspberry, but it sure is tasty. Almost no alcohol present; no noticeable hops either. I would really recommend this to any new beer drinkers looking for a tasty but non-challenging fruity beer that wonít get them drunk off their ass. Well done, Samíl Smith, well done.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huge PINK head; leaves good lace. Without light, the liquor has ruby color. With light, it appears a clear, soda-pop red.
Sweet fruity aroma, like a raspberry candy, not like the raw fruit. Light sourness in the background.
Like a sweet framboise. Thereís a touch of sourness, but it is the story of the berry here. Again, the flavor is closer to a raspberry candy. Would make a good dessert beer with cheese.

Bottle, Rehills, Ncl. One that iíve passed over many times, but Iím pleased I finally decided to purchase one. Lovely ribena-like appearance, with a faint pink head. Soft and fruity palate with a really pleasant raspberry flavour that lingers well. There is some dryness right at the end, but overall, a very well made fruit beer that can rival its Belgian counterparts.
