Red pour with pink head. Beer head should not be pink. Aroma is sweet raspberry and malt. Taste is the same, but throws in some sour. Nice, but too sweet for me.

Even further away from beer than the SS Cherry. Easy to drink but the raspberry is over-embellished.

Smells lovely, just not like beer. My favourite smell is probably thyme, but I wouldn’t want beer to smell like thyme (I think). So should I score this highly because it smells nice just not of beer? I don’t actually care what you think, I’ve gone for 8. Tastes of.... raspberries. Go figure.

MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2013
(bottle, 35.5cl) Clear, red coloured hue with a medium-sized pink foamy head. Distinctive aroma of raspberries with a mildly malty background. Sweet and slightly sour-tart flavour, light bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Raspberry flavours upfront with a tinge of malt beyond; moderately sweet and mildly sour-tart finish with notes of raspberries in the aftertaste. A tad sweet but nevertheless likeable and refreshing. 15.II.13

Poured from bottle. Opaque deep red with a very light pink head. Smells of raspberry jam. Tastes initially of sweet raspberries with a bitter tart finish.

Very delightful raspberry ale. Has a bit of a funny smell at first but the taste more than makes up for it. One of the better raspberry fruit beers.
