JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2006
Deep red-purple colour with a bright red head. Great blackberry aroma, sweet fruity with a touch of peppery character in the back. Flavour is also quite fruity with peppery/wheaty notes. Lacks a lot of the acidity that I feel a beer like this needs to brighten up the flavour. Not bad, but could be better.

jercraigs (8644) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2007
Bottle. Deep pink/purple body, with a fluffy pink head. (3+) Big but diffuse raspberry aroma, tiny note of raspberry seeds. Flavour is dominated by lightly tart raspberry and not much else. Muted malt flavour is overshadowed by raspberry, which is pleasant enough but lacks the depth or complexity to take it from a amiable quaff to a more interesting sipper. 6+/3+/6/3/12-13

3fourths (8634) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Dark purple and pink colored body. Nose is a mixture of sweet and musty/drier berries, wood, starches, etc - it smells quite nice. Flavorwise, though, it’s a different story. Candy sweet, plasticy, medicinal even, with a twang that’s hard to overcome. Body is thinner than it needs to be, and the finish is a bit sour, doesn’t really taste right. Smells good, that’s the one positive thing about this beer.

DocLock (8570) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2006 Nice raspberry aroma. Tastes like raspberry, with some citrus, yeast, and hops at the finish. Nice style, but beware that this one is not very tart like the New Glarus offerings. Rather, it has a more subtle taste, more like fresh raspberries.

Fin (8410) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2011
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

deyholla (8334) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Bottle. Poured a cloudy dark amber red with a pinkish white head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of black raspberries with some tartness, quite one note. Flavor is similar one note with a black raspberries throughout and not much else coming through.

j12601 (8000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Bottle at the Cuvee de Castleton release at Captain Lawrence. Pours a hazy red brown with some purple highlights. Not much of a head. Soft sweet raspberry aromas. Egads is this sweet. Cloying artificial raspberry flavors are overwhelming… very one dimensional.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Bottle thanks to nellie via bu11zeye. Pours with a hazy amber body with an off-white head that slowly fades. Aroma is raspberry cordial. [period]. Boozy fruit notes, pretty sweet. Raspberry syrup. Very fizzy and very thin right off the bat. Has the mouthfeel of a soda. Flavors are raspberries, medium to sweet, light tartness. Finishes a bit yeasty. Nothing offensive here. Just raspberry syrup and soda water. Alcohol is well hidden though.

sebletitje (7879) - 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.
