VsXsV (2246) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2013
Draught at CBC ’13. Hazy pink liquid with medium pink head. Aroma of fresh raspberries, candy, lemons and vanilla. Awesome. Taste is dry and light to medium sour with notes of raspberries, vanilla and wood. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Great stuff, like raspberry juice.

Leighton (10803) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2013
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.

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....

Countbeer (4393) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2013
Draught@Borefts’13: No head, beautiful hazy grapefruit red (pink tints) colored beer. Aroma of raspberry, cotton, yeast, hay, some grains, some corn, tart and so crispy... Flavours of a lovely sourness with raspberries, some wood tint, sweet red fruity chalky something, yeast, some cabbage, grapes, some cherry tints and something crispy that could be a mix of the yeast and sourness... Very nice! Aftertaste is tart, raspberry, yeast, sour, some sweet hay... Hmmmm Low carbo, soft yet sparkling sour ish watery mouthfeel, medium to full bodied and a light watery texture. Wow, another awesome beer! Delicious!

mR_fr0g (2927) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2014
Keg at BD Shepard’s Bush. Aroma is bright and sharp raspberry. Some complex grape skin tanin. Really nice fruit in the nose. Bright pink red colour with no head. Attractive nonetheless. Flavour is tart raspberry, wheat grains and low puckering acid. Very well balanced. Again lovely fresh fruit character in the mouth. Very approachable tart character. So so good!

Smalle (104) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2014
On tap at the brewery on 2-Aug-2014. Beautiful reddish color. Aroma of fresh raspberries. A bit vinous. The taste is of real fresh raspberries (not the chemical "raspberry-syrup" type), sour and a slightly bitter. Fantastic summer beer.

_angst_ (2757) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2013
Draught @ CBC2013. Pours hazy vibrant red with a frothy and creamy pink head that slowly dissipates while leaving some soft lacing on the glass. Smell is fruity tart with crackers, lemon juice, hay, tons of fresh raspberries and hints of sour milk. Taste is sour and fruity tart with crackers, lemon juice, hay, lemon zest, fresh raspberries, unflavoured yoghurt and dry soil. Mouthfeel is clean, crisp., dry, tart and light bodied. Finish is sour and fruity tart with crackers, fresh raspberries, hay and lemon juice. Incredible refreshing fruity awesomeness in liquid form...

Tap at the brewery. Aroma is great, very fruity, but tart. Taste is similar, very fruity, raspberry, tarty and nice sourness. Good stuff. Yum.
