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.

Maria (10129) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2008
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.

imdownthepub (9999) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2011
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.

Lubiere (9765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2011
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.
