Bottle. 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.

Gr0ve (2157) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2011
750 ml bottle. Dark mahogany red colour. Clear. Fizzy carbonation. Tall head initially, but it fizzes down leaving only a very small off-white head. Fruity raspberry nose with hints of rubber and sweet melanoidin malt. Body is relatively light. Very high carbonation level. No noticeable hops. No noticeable wheat either for that matter. Lots of raspberry, but the beer feels clean and without much substance. Slightly tart, and quite refreshing.

Bomber that was corked and caged. Poured a red/purplish hazyy color with a fizzy redish thick head. Had the aroma of raspberry syrup, and candi sugar. This was very carbonated, almost as much as a soda. Sugary raspberry flavors hit the palate with a subtle tartness aftertaste.

wedgie9 (2100) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 26, 2011
Tasted on 6/26/11 from a 750mL corked and caged bottle, thanks to Ryan. Pours hazy deep fiery red with an average pink head that slowly recedes to very spotty lace. The nose is very pleasant, smells just like raspberry jam with a bit of underlying maltiness. The flavor is just the same, with the addition of some light tartness, but falls a bit short. The body is almost full with a bit of a syrupy texture, lively carbonation and a short raspberry jam finish.

r464 (1946) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2011
Reddish in color with a fizzy berry colored head. Fruity but not tart, sweet but not overly so. Malt flavor is buried in there. Not bad, but not a standout.

DYCSoccer17 (3357) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 1, 2011
25 ounce bottle purchased at Bark’s Beer Cave. Expires 12/02/12. The aroma on this is full of raspberry and blackberries. Some cereal is also there. Totally fruity. 1 dimensional. Ruddy burgundy hazy body with a strong, medium pink head. Starts very carbonated before some sweet raspberry fruitiness comes through. It then becomes tart, astringent, and quite metallic in the end. Too carbonated and not so great.

Translucent deep red in color with a huge pink head that fades rather quickly. Aroma is of raspberry syrup, not much else. Body is very carbonated with notes of raspberries and some slight sourness in the finish. Light mouth-feel, fairly watery.

Be careful opening this one up... just a little bit of pressure on the cork, and it had launched across my kitchen. This has a mild aroma of sugar and raspberries. It pours a dark ruby red, with a big pink head that quickly subsides, leaving some moderate lacing behind. Strong raspberry flavor, with a little bit of the malt coming through in the finish. It’s light on the palate, and easy to drink. Not my favorite style, but a good example of the style.

Bottle at Jan & Charlottes tasting, Ulfborg, Denmark 09.04.11 cheers Jan & Charlotte Nice aroma here, reminding me a little of Boon Framboise, in fact the aroma is bloody gorgeous. Pours blood red with a very light pink head. The aroma suggests that this is going to be a belter and better than it actually ends up to be. Taste however is a little thin with no depth, lacking sourness, fruity bite and depth. sadly. A9 A4 T6 P3 Ov13 3.5

fonefan (36036) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 14, 2011

Bottle 750ml. @ UK-SCO Tasting in Ulfborg.

Clear dark red color with a average to large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to light heavy raspberry, sweet raspberry. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. Not as complex as expected ! [20110409]
