3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2011 Bottle. The pour was a medium to dark red almost a cranberry in color with an average sized (1-2 finger) fizzy pink head that dissipated quite quickly and had fair lacing.
The aroma was extremely strong with the scent of Raspberry’s and had a mild sweet yeast odor to it and not much else.
It tasted moderately sweet and slightly malty with a nice dose of Raspberry from beginning to end with a hint of yeast at the finish that left the flavor lingering on the taste buds for a nice long time after the swallow.
Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and slightly watery in texture yet had a dry feel to it at the finish with a nice lively carbonation.
Overall kind of a sweet brew with a lot of flavor, but it is more like Lambic than a Fruit Beer. Although it might be quite tasty mixed with a dry stout.

Bottle from single step health food shop Lancaster bought a year ago. Deep ruby red in my wide glass with an off pink light head. Aroma is acidic, raspberry, sweet and boozy. Yum. Rich, sweet fruity raspberry flavours with a hint of spicy esters. Mouthful is grand, all encompassing and almost silky. Very soft. Flavour is quite tart but balanced well by the sweetness and depth of texture. Surprisingly,I think this beer aged really well

from Bier-Bienne - cloudy reddish-brown beer under a long lasting pinkish foam; solid aroma of raspberries bubblegums; hugely sweet, medium-bodied and juicy; light herbal finish with strong notes of raspberries sweeties and lot of residual sugars

(bottle - 500 ml) Pink pour with a lightly pink head. Light raspberry jam aroma. Rather sweet but a tad tart. Big raspberry flavor at the start with a lightly tart finish and a fruity but tart aftertaste.

Smells like raspberry jam. Texture is kind of watery, light foam, and very little fizz, kind of like drinking soda after it is almost (but clearly not) flat. Tastes like tart raspberry jam with natural sweetness. Aftertaste is similar with just a TINY hint of bitterness and is medium to long length.

Bottle for Kirkwall bottle shop. Pours a ruby red with a thick frothy pink head which lasts. Aromas of raspberry, slight cherry and grassy hints. Nice bitter raspberry compot taste which sweetens near the end. Nice aftertaste.
Definitely to be enjoyed in the summer sun.
