OxfordBeer (16) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JAN 20, 2013
550 ml into strange glass. Pours almost a blood red/purple, like a raspberry puree. High carbonation and a soapy light pink head with good retention leaving laces on the glass. Nose is tart raspberries and esters. Taste is sweet, raspberries, some malt and a crisp dry finish leaving a subtle raspberry flavor on the palate. Somewhat dull mouthfeel, but an overall great beer, id purchase again.

GuideDogSaint (513) - Xiamen, CHINA - JAN 10, 2015
550ml bottle at Beer Station, Xiamen. Pours hazy red brown with a dissipating white head. Can get the raspberry aroma from a mile off. Just immense raspberry with some sourness. Nice.

Theydon_Bois (10378) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle at the Anchor Tap, 03/01/15. Cherry red with a decent crimson covering. Nose is raspberry syrup, light straw, faint smoke, light cherry and red berry notes. Taste comprises raspberries, sweet notes, berry pulp. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet close. Decent enough fruit beer, better than I’d expected, if a little sweet overall!

radiomgb (2423) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2015
650ml bottle purchased at the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Deep red in colour with a pinkish coloured head, good retention, excellent lacing. The aroma has lots of raspberries, white sugar sweetness, a bit tart. The flavour is quite sweet with lots of raspberries, jam and juice, tart as well. Sweet mouthfeel, light body, medium carbonation. Finishes long and sweet with more raspberries. The raspberry flavour in this is nice. Never syrupy, actually tastes like real fruit.

Sweet, similar to framboise but not as sour. Would be very nice poured over vanilla ice cream. Not sure I could drink an entire bottle.

Oakes (12849) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
Reddish, sweet, fruity like raspberry candy. Very sweet, uber candy, and not really balanced. I wouldn’t say "offensive" but I wouldn’t say "beer" either.
