3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Raspberry fruit beer… and when if it got warm I wouldnt drink much more. In memoriam Prince. Anyway…. Bottle at All Saints Brewery, Stamford. Reddish black-pudding brown with a tidy pinkish head. Less fruit in the aroma than I’d have expected. There is however a massive biscuity malty note with berry jam at best a side order and at worst an afterthought. The taste is raspberry-licious without being overpowering. Stodgy jammie dodger aftertaste. Pretty good if somewhat inconsequential.

Red/pinkish head and clear red color. Initially taste like raspberry ice-cream or similar. Sweet taste, as easy to drink as cider.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, quite deep red body with a pink, fully lasting head that leaves lots of lacing on my glass. Strong aroma that is totally dominated by sweet, jam-like raspberries. Strong flavour of sweet, sugary raspberries and cherry pits, with caramel and citrus in the back. Moderate sweet taste with a very light acidity and some bitterness. Medium body, smooth texture and moderate carbonation. A perfect beer if you like raspberries, but don’t love sours.

*Old rating. Nice sweetish raspberries in the beginning. It is fresh, like raspberry sirup, sweetish-round. Very nice, a bit sweetish, round and not too artificial. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My favorite Samuel Smith fruit beer so far. Well balanced. Quite sweet with a lot of raspberry and some darker fruits. Malty, bread crust and hops for balance.

Clear raspberry colour with sweet aroma. Perfectly balanced palate, not too sweet, not too dry. Nice real fruit flavour. Very easy to drink. 5.1% Vol. Can’t really fault it. :-)
