First time I have tried this beer. The aroma is all tayberries, very sweet and pleasant. The beer is an amber colour with a pinkish hue. The head does not retain well. The taste is overly fruity for me, the berries dominate at the expense of the beer. Not bad but probably one for the ladies rather than the men.

500 ml bottle. Clear amber colour, thin white head. Nice raspberry aroma with some grassy notes. The flavour is sourish fruity, with some sweet berries, and a mildly grassy finish. A little thin on the palate.

Pours copper color with a small head. Aroma of fruits, berries, juice and grass. Flavor is the same with some more juice. Not so appealing though.

Light amber, clear good dense creamy white head that also stays long and leaves bit lacing. Aroma has stunningly much berries, bit sour and sweet, quite natural aroma. Really light body and feel, lots berries here also, slightly sour like some berries are but not overly so and sweetness from berries, long finish has berries. Really light, easy to drink in the summer kinda beer that most would think to be unbeery.

Cloudy pink with white head. Berry all the way in aroma and taste. Not too sweet. Quite highly carbonated. Slightly tart finish. Very nice.

Grzesiek79 (3447) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 26, 2013
Dobre i smaczne piwo z sokiem owocowym. Zapach jest bardzo mocno wyczuwalny taki owocowo-kwiatowy. Piana maleńka i szybko znika. Piwo przez ten dodany naturalny sok jest trochę mętne. Bardzo naturalne piwo z lekką goryczką. Podobne do Belchawena i także ze szkocji

50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 07.05.2010
Aroma has raspberries, some grainy malt and hints of hay. Flavour is slightly sweet with raspberry juice, some grain, hay and hints of toffee. Surprisingly balanced and good, I was expecting a sweet berry overdose.

rauchbier (3655) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle, from Beverley Garden Centre. Gold with hints of pink, thin shortlived fizzle of white head and gentle condition. Gentle sharp fruity berry notes in the nose with a slight mouldy eartiness, quite soft in the mouth with a gentle raspberry note that has some sweetness dveloping and a touch of honey, short finish with a brief raspberry note to start and meting into a malty sweetness at the end
