Bottle from Cornelius Wines, Edinburgh [120813]
Vibrant red, clear, pink frothy head
Aroma of raspberry jam, sweet red fruits, very fruity, no beer aroma
Taste of raspberry jam fruits, very fruity sweet, not getting the underlying beer but the raspberry taste is very good
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, very sweet palate, rather too sweet for me. Finish - sweet raspberry finish
Overall - Very nice fruit beer - but in small quantities as very sweet

Bottle at PIB, pours an opaque ruby red with a small pink head. Aroma of pure raspberries, not much else to say about the nose. Flavour brings out raspberry purée, with a medium sweetness that never cloys. Very pungent and natural tasting. Nothing artificial here.

From 22oz bottle to chalice. Pours dark red, very juicelike with very thin carbonated head. Obvious aroma of raspberry, s,all hint of barley. Taste is very fruity and carbonated. There is also a degree of sourness to the taste, very complimenting. Finish is fizzy with nice fruit touch. Interesting beer

Miked1687 (608) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Bottle into glass, deep red pour with a big pink head. Smells like raspberry preserves or ice cream. Taste is is raspberry juice with some tartness and a bit of an earthy finish. Too sweet, not enough ale.

bottle. Deep red with small head. Excellent intense tart raspberry flavor with light sweetness. I’m not sure how they cram so much flavor in to these fruit beers. Crazy, but really good.

Osprey87 (1363) - WALES - MAY 26, 2013
Cold bottle. Deep red with a pink head. Smells of raspberry jam. Flavour is very sweet - raspberry and clove. Not like any beer I’ve had, and it’s hard to think of it as a beer. Tasty though. My teeth feel as though they are gradually rotting away as I drink it.
