Thx. to Tinus // 75 cl. Bottle sampled @ RBBSG 2012 // raspberry ruby coloured with an off-white head // smells of raspberry jam, some mashed raspberries // this tastes more or less like raspberry jam, which is pretty good for me; yummy, quite sweet, small touches of malt, some syrup, sweet , lots of jam, pretty much what fruit beers should be // med. body

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2006 Cork bottle, pour was purple, huge foamy purple head. Nose was berries, but still under cut by ale. Sweet and refreshing, no trace of the 8%. The carbination carried the fruit to the nose, and the tart finish was great.
Missed some malt in the nose. Damn , still very refreshing, the berries are a pleasant compliment. As this warmed, lots of peper came out on the atip of my tongue, real stong in the after taste. Great fruit brew here folks.

Buffy raspberry hue and sudsy dirty pink-beige head.
Aroma of raspberries, sour cherries, and caramel-chocolate.
Moderately sweet with nice dry finishing acidity.
Some palatable texture early on, but dries and puckers in the finish.
This is developing very nicely.

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.

Bottle pour.Dark red/purple color with a huge pink head,highly carbonated.Aroma was raspberry with faint hop notes and slight cut grass tinge.Taste was strong raspberry with a slight wheat and hop taste.This one was strange because the raspberry taste seemed to come and go from drink to drink,alternating between the hop/wheat/raspberry to all raspberry.All in all it was pretty good,and I look to try more from this brewery.

Growler, poured dark purple with no head. Weak raspberry aroma. Strong raspberry taste with slight alcohol (8%) warming on the way down. Did not know this was considered a wheat beer till I just read it here.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2006 magnum bottle compliments of michael-pollack. Thanks! dark cranberry pour with thick foamy head. fresh aroma of wheat and raspberry, mild sugar. Smells like a Rasp cobbler. First sip was a bit much but the flavor mellows quickly. As it warms and as you continue to drink it mellows as well. nice raspberry, wheat, sour malts, mild sugars. clean wheat becomes more present as it warms. nice lacing throughout. This was very enjoyable. Thanks again Mike.

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.

750 ml bottle. Poured a dark and hazy purple color with fizzy, light purple head. Strong aroma of raspberries. While raspberries were also the dominant flavor, it was not overpowering. No sourness that some others have reported. My wife and I shared this bottle along with some goat cheese and it was an excellent pairing. Light bodied, not at all syrupy or cloying. This bottle was quite enjoyable and I’ll be back for another!
