3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours with a pinkish creamy head, lovely nose very very fruity. Good fruit flavour with a bit of tartness which is great but it lacks body on the palate which for me lets it down.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Hazy, amber golden with a tint of red and a rough, of-white head. Aroma is pure raspberry. Medium body with very clean and very fruity raspberry notes - this appears to be the real mccoy. Lightly acidic with a light fusty and earthy edge. The finish is dry. A very well crafted fruit beer- 040208

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber hazy body with red tones. Small head. Raspberry dominates the aroma. Raspberry are also a part of the taste but in a more balanced way. Sweet aftertaste but not too sweet.

I had this beer from the bottle, it was beautifully clear, rich in natural raspberry flavour and went well with the food I had. I think that the addition of the late season raspberries rather than cordial like a number of other fruit beers is a tribute to the natural brewing techniques employed by this place.
