2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. It pours a hazy, red body under a a small, pinkish white head. Raspberry, sweetness, berry-like sourness and jam on the nose. A bit weak. The flavor is sweet and raspberry-ish, with some sourness. It lacks a bit, but is quite decent. Medium body with some acidity. Sweet, berryish finish. A quite decent one, even though it lacks something in both aroma and flavor. (090228)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, bought @ LIVA, Kolding.
Pours clear red, some bubbles sticking to the insides of my glass. A bubbly pink head on top - that actually stays for a surprising amount of time. Aroma is sweet and fruity, good raspberries and a slight citric tartness behind it. Fine mouthfeel. Flavour is lightly dry, some subdued tartness and a good sweet touch of raspberries. These beers, like the old Melborne are great alternatives/entries to a world of lambic. Good appetizer drinks as well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: The Raspberry beer pours a deep, dark, garnet color with hints of purple. There is a large pink head which is quite fluffy.
S: You can definitely tell that this is a raspberry beer. The aroma is full of sweet raspberries. There is not much else to the nose other than the sweet, fruity smell.
T: The taste is almost identical to the scent. The raspberry flavor is the star of the show and it is quite sweet.
M: This is quite a fizzy beer, which works well for the style. It helps to cut down on the sweetness, as otherwise this would taste like syrup.
D: The beer is a bit too sweet for my tastes. I enjoy a good amount of fruit in beers, but it tends to be more in lambic form so that the tartness helps to balance things out. I’m glad I shared this with my girlfriend as I don’t think I would have been able to drink it all.
