Übertrieben in der Säure, wenn man vorher das Apricot hatte, ansonsten sehr fruchtig, sehr belebend und stellenweise wirklich echt wirkend mit einem netten Teil von Himbeeren, wenn auch der Verdacht der Künstlichkeit genährt wird.

McTapps (3574) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 28, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep pink-red colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of raspberries and jam. Taste of fresh raspberries, respberry jam, syrup, leaves and juice. Easy and nice drinkable although it lacks some body. Nice one though.

Live review. This is poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance is a nice looking hazy red color with a thick two and a half fingered reddish white foamy and bubbly head. Once the head starts to die in a concave sort of fashion, there’s a ton of thick foamy lacing (nice show!). The smell has a ton of raspberry up front in a sweet sort of way. The taste is sweet raspberry with a decent wheat kick near the end. On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium in body with a decent sessionable aspect about it. The carbonation seems to be extremely smooth in this one. Overall, I like it. This is a pretty good raspberry ale with a decent refreshing quality that’ll make your summers enjoyable.

Rötliches Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch süß nach Himbeeren, etwas malzig, hopfig, so ist auch der Geschmack.

This is a favorite at our house for an easy to drink relaxing beer. The raspberry flavor and aroma is strong but not overpowering.
