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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Mostly clear, deep, burnt orange ale with a mid-sized, fluffy, off-white/pink/purple head. Great retention. The aroma is very reminiscent of New Glarus Raspberry Tart – just straight up raspberries. No big “fruit extract” component present here. Medium-bodied and milky with moderate carbonation. The flavor leans just a touch toward the sweet side of balance and is just a smidge tart. Faint medicinal element; otherwise, this brew is just fruity and tangy. Well made.

Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket Liquor Fort Collins. Pours a hazy plum appearances with an off white / a touch pinkish head. Juicy, tart, raspberry / cranberry, slightly sweet aroma. Somewhat goopy, raspberry purée, plum, tart berry, soda-like flavor. Best of the fruit renditions I’ve had by Samuel Smith. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
LCBO bottle, aka Melbourne Brothers raspberry, and certainly in their way of making beer. Sticky enough to attract flies. Reddish with pink foam. On the sweet side, medium mouthfeel. A good tartness. Very berry. Decent fruit beer.
