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.

Bottle. Red-brown pour with a mild, white head. Pure raspberry aroma. Flavor is very sweet and fruity like a raspberry puree, with light tartness and some earthy malts and faint bitterness. Light to medium in body with fizzy carbonation. Finishes sweet and fruity with lingering raspberry. Very nice beer.

En meget behagelig frugtøl for os, der kan li’ hindbær.
Dark red with a pink head. The aroma has notes of raspberries and a natural berry sourness and sweetness. The flavour has sweetness and berry-sourness and nice notes of raspberries with a hint of citrus. A pleasant fruit beer if you like raspberries.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, 500ml from S.H.Jones, Banbury. Tawny red with pinkish head. Sweet raspberry notes from the off, quite cordial like with a fuller malty body to carry it, the raspberry tastes a little forced, unnatural for some reason, like a child’s sweet. A little too much for me, but I get this with a lot of fruit beers.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A burgundy red ale with a thin pinkish head. In aroma, raspberry candy drops, a bit like fruit flavoured Halls or Certs, some raspberry jam, not bad. In mouth, a sweet raspberry juice with light malted notes, a tad too much on the alcopop side, but nice in the summer. LCBO bottle.
