Very delightful raspberry ale. Has a bit of a funny smell at first but the taste more than makes up for it. One of the better raspberry fruit beers.

550 ml into strange glass. Pours almost a blood red/purple, like a raspberry puree. High carbonation and a soapy light pink head with good retention leaving laces on the glass. Nose is tart raspberries and esters. Taste is sweet, raspberries, some malt and a crisp dry finish leaving a subtle raspberry flavor on the palate. Somewhat dull mouthfeel, but an overall great beer, id purchase again.

Pours pink/red with strong Rsapberry scent. All in all not to bad, but tastes more like a wine cooler than a beer. Not a big fan of fruity beer, but absolutely love Samuel Smith’s so I thouhgt I would give it a try.

red tinged pour with RED tinged head! - aromas of raspberry syrup - taste like carbonated melted raspberry sherbet with a little alcohol mixed in - I guess I would normally not like a raspberry ’beer’ with this much fruit but it’s not terrible

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
This fruit beer poured a deep red colour with a nice, frothy, pink head. Scents include raspberries, hard fruit juice, champagne, wine and industrial adhesive. First sip was very raspberry flavoured. Quite tangy on the palate. Other flavours of sweet fruit juice and old books quite prodominant. Finish is like eating a plastic chair. No idea why the percentile is so high on this mess.
