CBC. Hazy pink - red beer, little pink head. Light crispy palate. Good balance of tartness and sourness. The raspberry is quite mild with other fruits coming in. Crisp finish. I don’t normally like something this tart but somehow (and I should not be surprised here) Kernel make it work for me!

Scopey (6719) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2013
At Kernel. It pours hazy rose with a medium white head. The nose is fresh raspberry, strawberry, floral, lemon, white sugar and Parma violets. The taste is smooth, sour raspberry, strawberry, bright tartness, lemon and light vinegar, with a dry, tart finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. Great balance and flavour. Utterly drinkable....

Tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Session 1. Pours lightly hazy pink with a fine, white cream head. Lovely beer from start to finish. The raspberry is at once fresh and delicate and vibrant. Lightly tangy. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Crisp and clean to finish with mild tartness, fresh raspberry, moderate sweetness. Super drinkable and refreshing.

Pours clear red with a small, pink head. Aroma has raspberry, light wheat, quite lactic. Medium to high carbonation, nice dry and fairly light mouthfeel. Flavour is pleasantly tart, fruity zest, wheat. A touch of sulphur detracts, but still really nice.
