3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle shared by BeerGestapo, thanks Mike. Pours a deep, beautiful garnet with a large pink head. It smells exactly like black raspberry ice cream. The flavor doesn’t have quite as much raspberry character as the nose would lead you to believe. Lots of raspberry jam flavor with some crackery pilsner malt behind it. Very dry with medium-high carbonation. Finished dry but lacks any lingering qualities. Would be decent with a big sticky dessert.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared in London - thanks to Fergus for this juice boost. Pours an attractive clear bloody red with a pink foam head. Lots of juicy and jammy raspberry in the nose - little else. Medium sweet flavor, lightly tangy, with faint bitter raspberry seeds. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. More bitter seeds in the finish, slight tangy raspberry. Great nose but the flavor doesn’t follow on strongly enough.

Almost a lambic. Overly fruity. Very good for what they claimed. Would mix well with chocolate vodka or cake...your choice. Had in bottle
