yespr (36046) - 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 (11555) - 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 (7040) - 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 (10574) - 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

Papsoe (25073) - 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

SHIG (3982) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 5, 2007
Cask 78 Ultimate Glasgow tasting afters pub crawl: Poured a reddish color with a white head. The aroma is berry and sweet. The taste reminds me of captain crunch, berry goodness. Tayberry is new to me but nice!

KnutAlbert (6386) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2007
Bottle bought in Glasgow. Rich berry aroma, raspberry-like. There is a sweetness, too, but it leaves a dry palate with some hoppiness in the finish. Very pink. All right, really something else.

Sigmund (5799) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2007
500 ml bottle, bought at Real Foods, Edinburgh (an organic food store, but there’s no mentioning on the label that this beer is organic). The basis of this beer is Williams Gold, with added tayberries and left to mature for a few weeks. Róisin Tayberry Beer pours with a clear pinkish red colour and a decent pale pink head. Strong aroma of ripe tayberries (which appears to be a crossbreed between raspberry and blackberry, much like boysenberries). The flavour is also dominated by tayberries, but the beer is not very sweet, nor very sour, and there are noticeable hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is a bit thin though. Still a nice change-of-pace beer.
