thewolf (12023) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2008
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.

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.
