Aroma of blackberry and grape juice. Pours deep black red with no head. Taste is tart black cherry and raspberry with a seltzer feel and taste. Tastes like a diet soda.

Cakes (363) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2012
On tap at the Selinsgrove Beer & Wine Festival. This is very well done. It is not a "novelty" beer, but rather a well made fruit beer that is worth trying. Single finger surprisingly pink head on a reddish amber body. Aroma isn’t too sweet with musty raspberry and blackberries. Flavor is well balanced.

Thx. to Tinus // 75 cl. Bottle sampled @ RBBSG 2012 // raspberry ruby coloured with an off-white head // smells of raspberry jam, some mashed raspberries // this tastes more or less like raspberry jam, which is pretty good for me; yummy, quite sweet, small touches of malt, some syrup, sweet , lots of jam, pretty much what fruit beers should be // med. body

Very red, crimson colour, off-white head. Aroma of raspberry, black raspberry, quite sweet, light bitter, malts and raspberry pips. Light sweet flavour, blueberries. Quite light, almost weak. Sweet finish, loads of raspberry.

Corked bottle. Strong raspberry aroma. Initial roasted malt challenged by raspberries. fairly dry. Hint of vanilla. Questionable balance. Hint of alcohol. Still a nice beer.

11/VIII/2012 75cl bottle @ RBBSG - (2012-913) Thanks to Tinus for sharing the bottle!

Clear ruby red beer, no head, dissipates immediately. Aroma: lots of raspberry jam. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: lots of raspberry jam, little sweet, pretty bitter touch as well. Aftertaste: little bitter, rapsberry, bit lemony, little metallic. Not a huge fan of cooking the fruits with the wort, I prefer beer which is blended with "raw" fruits.

at RBBSG thx to Martinus for sharing !!

Head: white
Colour: ruby
Smell: very fruity, raspberry, sweet, some malts
Taste: Ok this is a Fruit Beer , so doesn’t have to be sour , since it’s not a sour ale , pretty good rounded sweet flavour of the rasberrys , some malts underneath, not that bad !

sebletitje (6777) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2012
Bottle sample @ 2nd RBBSG, August 11th 2012. Courtesy of Tinus. Couleur acajou, col beige fin. Arôme de mûres, fruité avec ce bouquet de fruits terreux faisant abstraction des fausses notes fruitées. Palais garde ce côté fruité framboise, mûres, note terreuse sur une pointe de douceur mais le tout reste plus centré sur une fine note aigre avec des houblons nobles laissant une brève amertume.

Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is huge red fruits, mostly raspberry. (No shit) Almost like concentrated lemonade syrup, with the forthcoming articifial notes. Flavour is huge raspberry, blackcurrant, all very dry and very fruity. Not bad for a fruit beer. (which is really not my style.)
