This beer was okay. The raspberry seemed to come in bursts, and conflict with, rather than blend with or complement, the typical ale flavors. Not my favorite fruit beer, or my favorite Sam Smith brew

Nice raspberry aroma. Dark pink, not much of a head. Tart raspberry flavour, can’t pick out much of the underlying beer flavour. Nice beer to experiment matching with sweet food.

Bottle from Whole Foods Kensington. Bright pink, some pinkish head with decent carbonation. I so wanted to hate this, bought it for cooking as they didn’t have any Belgian fruit beers worthy of the name, and it looks like bright pink fruit juice! But it’s nice, tart raspberries with a healthy dose of sweetness. It may not have the complexity of a lambic-based framboise but it’s pretty tasty.

Pour is a clear bright red with a huge pink head. Aroma is a nice fresh blast of raspberry. Flavor is a sweet raspberry, kind of like drinking some liquefied raspberry jam. Finish is a big tart but also sweet at the same time. This was decent, a bit sweet but still decent.

Leftovers from Christmas. Sweet raspberry nose. Med body with more raspberry. Sweet overall and a good fruit beer but not my thing.

Pours a clear lovely dark garnet. World class head volume, retention and lacing.
Outstanding rich nose of sweet raspberry over a light biscuit.
Light medium body with a smooth texture that has creamy moments due to the superb carbonation. Above normal carbonation with a nice effervescence from the middle on.
The flavor profile is very good, but is a bit short in intensity when compared to their cherry variant. Complexity and balance are good. It begins with slightly sweet raspberry that approaches tart in the middle. A hint of herbal hops emerge in the middle over a soda like sweetness undertone. The finish is a slow effervescent fade of slightly tart raspberry over a residual biscuit sweetness.

Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Thompson. Hazy reddish color, average sized off-white to pinkish head. Smell and taste are both quite sweet, sweet candy, a bit artificial actually. Nah, too sweet for me. And a bit artificial imo, or at least I get that association. Not a fan.
