Bright amber with a clingy white head. Sweet raspberry aroma. Taste begins promisingly with a fruity sourness and subsequent gentle rather seedy bitterness, with traces of raspberry in the background. Can’t quite say why, but by the end of the bottle some of the initial charm was gone.

Christian (11202) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2008
Dark golden beer with a small white head. Strong berry aroma, I’m thinking of blackberries. Dry berry flavour. Very refreshing beer.

yespr (31464) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2008
Århus2008. 50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a lacing white head. Sweet and light fruity aroma, seems to a housecharacter for the Williams brothers. Flavour is sweet and distinct berry fruity. Shows a light acidic touch into the finish. Shows a mild bitterness lurking through the sweet berry flavours too. Quite nice and wellcomposed. These beers seem perfectly suited as summer thirst-quencers.

thewolf (11190) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2008
Bottle @ Aarhus 2008.
Pours clear, golden red-orange with a frothy rim of cream. Aroma has good hops, light pine, some grass and a sharpish berry note. Okay mouthfeel. Flavour has some washing powder character, fruity oranges. Some tartness and very dry. Okay balance, just a bit weird.

downender (6360) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2008
500ml bottle. Rhubarb and onion skin coloured with next to no head. Slight aroma of tart raspberries. Flavour had plenty of red fruit before an abrupt, dry finish. An enjoyable and unusual fruit beer.

Bov (9602) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 20, 2008
from crackedkettle.com - clear red-orange colour with a little foam; deep and charming aroma of raspberries; moderate malt body, juicy, some sourness brings a good balance; quite dry and long sourish aftertaste of berries - original and good

chimplechamp (601) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2008
bottle- the cave- pours pinkish hazy orange tastes slightly skunked, with a nice puckering finish. isnt to harsh. "cranberryesque taste" summer grapefruit is also there. juicy and lingering vinegar finish.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2007
(Bottle 50 cl) Clear, reddish amber with a creamy, off-white head that leaves some lacework. Fresh raspberryish aroma. Fairly light in body with some berry sweetness on the fore and then a discreet underlying tartness. The finish is dry. A surprisingly refreshing and harmonious fruit beer. 271107
