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.

Leftovers from Christmas. Sweet raspberry nose. Med body with more raspberry. Sweet overall and a good fruit beer but not my thing.

Pours a clear lovely dark garnet. World class head volume, retention and lacing.
Outstanding rich nose of sweet raspberry over a light biscuit.
Light medium body with a smooth texture that has creamy moments due to the superb carbonation. Above normal carbonation with a nice effervescence from the middle on.
The flavor profile is very good, but is a bit short in intensity when compared to their cherry variant. Complexity and balance are good. It begins with slightly sweet raspberry that approaches tart in the middle. A hint of herbal hops emerge in the middle over a soda like sweetness undertone. The finish is a slow effervescent fade of slightly tart raspberry over a residual biscuit sweetness.

Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Thompson. Hazy reddish color, average sized off-white to pinkish head. Smell and taste are both quite sweet, sweet candy, a bit artificial actually. Nah, too sweet for me. And a bit artificial imo, or at least I get that association. Not a fan.

Looks like sparkling cranberry juice. With a pink frothy head that dissipates quickly. The flavour is much more juice than beer. Quite refreshing but a lack of alcohol flavour.

Bottle - plum red with a light pink fizzy head. Okay retention and some weak lace. Aroma of raspberry juice, wild flowers, grass. Taste is of raspberries, grass, earth, light tartness and a little soil in the finish. Medium body, medium carbonation.

500 ml bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy reddish purple color with a small pinkish head that doesn’t last. The aroma and flavor have raspberry jam, some tart character, light pale malts, not much else, just a bit more bang than the cherry version.
