jercraigs (7638) - 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

Benzai (7323) - 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.

Fin (7278) - 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

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Pours a murky dark mahogany ruby with a spotty, light pink head. Aroma has a big, fresh fruity raspberry character. Body starts a little thinner with an authentic, fresh ripe raspberry flavor and a touch of pale malt toward a drier finish with airy carbonation. An interesting raspberry beer, but a little thin.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2010
750mL bottle. Poured clear, rich purply-brown with a fizzy, shortly-retained tan head. The aroma picked up black raspberry seeds and meat paired with some lemony tartness.. almost artificial sugars backing it up, but it was still solid. The flavor found dry, semi-sweet raspberries at the core, with raspberry seed and wheaty tartness surrounding.. rather metallic on the finish with more fruit and bready malts.. very odd twang stuck at the end. Dry on the palate with sharp, prickly carbonation that clashed a little with the fruity tartness.. didn’t feel good, but didn’t really feel bad either.. meh.

sebletitje (6594) - 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.

j12601 (6584) - 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.

deyholla (6514) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, 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.

Hansen (6495) - Assentoft, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2012
Ruby coloured and hazy. Has a white head, mostly lasting. Both aroma and flavor has clear notes of raspberries and some fruity sweetness. Finish a bit astringent.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 11, 2006
Bottle from Doclock. Pours red with a pink head. Smells metallic with some pronounced raspberry notes. Taste is crisp and dry with raspberries there but not overwhelming you. Some hoppiness present as well. Very drinkable and enjoyable.
