Bottle. I had high hopes for this one, but they were quickly dashed. Pours a deep burgundy/red color with a moderately sized head. Aroma is fruity and nice. Flavor is very off. I was expecting much more raspberry presence, but it is lacking. There is a fake sourness present that really seems to disrupt things. Like articifical sweetener.

Fizzy pink head. Reddish dark body.
Raspberry malt aroma. Okay, but pretty basic.
Flavor is not great. Watered down wheaty raspberry. Fizzy. Blah.

2.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
750 ml. Pours a purple reddish color with a huge purple head. Aroma is raspberries with nothing else detectable. Light sourness with a huge flavor of you guessed it rasberries. This stuff kinda reminded me of the red sparkling grape juice that comes in a bottle as the carbonation was way too much. Mouthfeel was very thin. Interesting beer, but I can say I didn’t enjoy it too much. Too sweet, too fruity, too carbonated, too thin, too bad this is not what I look for in good beer.

Draft->flute: Pours a spare head that exhibits some lacing atop of a clear ruby-ish body with some carbonation. The aroma is of raspberry, light alcohol, hops, and grape must. The palate is medium, thin texture with the flavor being of average duration, moderately acidic and finishing like vinegar. Smells like lambic, tastes like raspberry wine vinegar.

Hazy red small white head. Aroma is very sweet and lots of raspberry. Taste is less sweet than aroma. Lots of carbonation. Very dry. I prefer a good cruel.

Clean dark red, beige bubbly head. Raspberry soda, lemonade, fruit milk. Way too sweet in the aroma, foaming mouth feel. Dry fruit feel and bitter end. Strange but I’m not a fan. Maybe if you love fruit beer. (At the De Molen tasting)

Mycket stor hallondoft, men vart tog smaken vägen? Den verkar helt död – enbart en tam och vattnig vätska. Lite besk eftersmak, och vart tog de 8 procenten vägen?

From a 750 into a snifter. Pours with a frothy read head. I like redheads. But it swiftly disappears... like a redhead. Aroma is really nice dark raspberry. Here’s when things go truely, truely, wrong. MOuthfeel is like seltzer. Taste is like seltzer with raspberry syrup added... not enough raspberry syrup added. The cork on the bottle had some very sticky, dark red raspberry stuff on it. My guess is that SF adds syrup to the bottle during bottling. Not sure how kosher that is. Anyway, this stuff sucks. Avoid at all costs.
