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.

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.

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

Ughsmash (7181) - 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.

CaptainCougar (7132) - 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.

deyholla (6989) - 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.

sebletitje (6895) - 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.

Hansen (6878) - 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.

750 ml bottle via trade with michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! Pours a lovely deep purple color with a finger-thick black raspberry-tinted off-white. Big black raspberry aroma, really fresh and fruity, without much else going on. The flavor, though, falls a little flat. Tasted like black raspberry flavored tonic water. Light-bodied, with very high carbonation and a spritzer-like mouthfeel. Fizzy. 8% ABV was nowhere to be found. Very interesting fruit beer; everyone who tried this one liked it but thought the flavor could have had more going on.

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.
