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.

Bottled. A vibrant dark red coloured beer with a short lived off-white head. Juicy raspberries throughout with the pips in constant evidence. A good base beer with super fruits added. Very tasty and moreish and stands up to the best Belgian fruit beers.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, 35.5cl) Clear, red coloured hue with a medium-sized pink foamy head. Distinctive aroma of raspberries with a mildly malty background. Sweet and slightly sour-tart flavour, light bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Raspberry flavours upfront with a tinge of malt beyond; moderately sweet and mildly sour-tart finish with notes of raspberries in the aftertaste. A tad sweet but nevertheless likeable and refreshing. 15.II.13

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.
