2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
An unclear orange beer with a nice orange-pink head. The aroma is very artificial of raspberries, while the flavor is thin with notes of raspberries, leading to a dry end.

(Bottle 34,1 cl) Hazy reddish orange with a small, slightly pink head. Very fruity, berry nose. Light-bodied with vaguely sour notes and very distinct accents of raspberries - appear authentic, not artificially flavoured. Not really sweet, but very fresh. A perfect summer aperitif. Thanks to Siroy for this. 150306

Bottled@Monks Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Orangeish amber colour with a small white head that leaves some lace. Aroma is raspberries, sweet malts as well as mild cardboardy notes. Flavour is raspberry, some mild wooden and malty notes as well. Slightly tart, but refreshing.

Cloudy pink grapefruit color. Aroma of raspberries and white sugar. Watery taste, with a very light fruit touch and extremely short final. Bad for my taste.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2005 Light, cloudy, peachy/amber/brown sort of colour. The aroma shows raspberries, wheat, yeast and alcohol. This beer is so light that all of its key elements are exposed, even the ones that shouldn’t be. Fizzy body. Tart, bland raspberry character with abundant, equally bland yeast and background quasi-maltiness. No different than any dime-a-dozen brewpub razz wheat. While maintaining some marginal drinkability it is an uncharacteristically poor effort from Unibroue.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy golden ale with a lightly pinkish thin head. Smells like raspberry purée with light acidic notes. Light malt and wheat tatse with little acidiic points and tart raspberries. Sweet and thinnish, but enjoyable. enjoyed the fresh fruits. Tasted at Institut’s gambrinale, Outaouais, Oct. 28 2005.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
#2400... Bottle... Cloudy, amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. The nose is a jumbled mess of berries, grain and bread dough. Thin, tartish flavor with moderate bitterness. Light-bodied and fizzy. Finishes weak, but crisp and clean. Too crisp and clean based on what was expected. Dissapointing! Thanks go out to my friend, Mr. Big, for the bottle. Not your fault!

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Had this on-tap at Beer Bistro and I could only take a few sips of a half-pint. Initially a bit of pink head that dissipitated, ugly light pinkish yellow colour that I won’t say what it resembled to spare you. A sugary artificial aroma. Thin, over-carbonated, kool-aid level raspberry.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
341 ml bottle. Very cloudy pink-orange beer with a thin pink head. Fairly sweet, simple, light raspberry aroma. A bit of soapiness with some wheatiness as well. Flavour is quite light, wheaty, light spice. Reasonable creamy bod. Fairly dry flavour, well-attenuated, but lacking in overall complexity. Some soft lingering fruitiness. Light sourness and strong floury (not flowery) flavour.

That ubiquitous Unibroue yeast prevails over the young raspberries. A dull pink robe doesn’t show the true essence of the raspberry, this sounds like the same old Ephemere song, with a fruit which doesn’t work as well as some others used before.
Dusty yeast overwhelms the raspberries, as a sweet fruitiness attempts to cover the ending. That signature yeast tastes more important than the fruit, which is a problem for this beer I think. A well-made fruit beer nonetheless, but not much going on.
Dropping some paint on a canvas can make curious formations.
