2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a dark magony brown to purple beer with a quickly dissipating pink head. Aroma is intensely fruity and sirupy. Taste is extremely malty and fruity, lightly dry and bitter; in reality, though, this isn’t so much beer as cassis with malts added.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big Top Beer Distro: Pours a framboise color with a maroon head. Aroma is of raspberries and a hint of booze. Taste has the raspberry at the front, but it peters out to a dry back by the end. Might actually not be sweet enough. I think that if they used some syrup it would have been a good thing. Kind of not enough body and not enough beer taste to make this a worthwhile brew.

1.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
From a 750 into a snifter. Pours with a frothy read head. I like redheads. But it swiftly disappears... like a redhead. Aroma is really nice dark raspberry. Here’s when things go truely, truely, wrong. MOuthfeel is like seltzer. Taste is like seltzer with raspberry syrup added... not enough raspberry syrup added. The cork on the bottle had some very sticky, dark red raspberry stuff on it. My guess is that SF adds syrup to the bottle during bottling. Not sure how kosher that is. Anyway, this stuff sucks. Avoid at all costs.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Airy light pink head on top of a hazy dark pink red beer with a brown tint.
Smell red fruit, raspberry, strawberry, rose hip, roosvice and some malts.
Taste is a strange mix of malts, red fruit, strawberry, raspberry, berries, bitter, some herb.
Good bitter aftertaste.
Medium carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a light watery texture.
Strangely balanced: not good but not bad either.

Hazy cloudy dark red color, head pinkish, quickly gone. Smells sweet like a child juice. Sweet and some kind of weird bitterness in the taste. Appears unbalanced. Medium body, medium carbo.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Mycket stor hallondoft, men vart tog smaken vägen? Den verkar helt död – enbart en tam och vattnig vätska. Lite besk eftersmak, och vart tog de 8 procenten vägen?

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pinkish color with a brief white head. Pleasant aroma with raspberries, malt and maybe some notes of cherries. The taste was not that interesting, on the weak side with some light notes of raspberries. Dry and light mouth feel. 8% alcohol? This one was almost like juice.
