Benzai (11840) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2011
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.

750ml bottle-pours a bubbly purple head and deep red color. Aroma is raspberry. Taste is raspberry, seltzer carbonation , malt. A Smirnoff on steroids. Nice, but is it beer?

bierkoning (11677) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2012
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.

Bottle shared at a tasting. Slighty hazy red, thin fizzy head. Aroma of tart raspberry, bready malt, caramel. The taste is tart raspberry and grape. Medium bodied, lingering fruitiness.

Bottle thanks to Fergus. It pours deep purple with with a medium pink head. The nose is sweet, juicy, candy, sweet raspberry, candy and some sugar. The taste is sweet, juicy, sweet, candy, raspberry, blackberry, sugary, jam, some boost alcohol and candy with a short finish. Medium+ body and moderate carbonation. Looks good. A bit sweet and lacking in depth. Some boost.

On tap at the Royersford locatoin. Poured a dark and hazy purple color with the same colored head. Aromas of, drum roll please, raspberries. The raspberry taste was less intense in the flavor and some wheat came out in the tastes as well. Lighter tart finish. Alcohol content hidden. I enjoyed this one.

Thanks Dr.Jay, surprisingly good. Think raspberry black tea, not raspberry jelly. Dark raspberry colour with pink head, bit of lace. Aroma, well raspberry. There is bitterness behind the taste, medium mouthfeel.
