RichardW (1448) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2009
Bottle, Booths, Windermere. Deeply cloudy and dusky pink in appearance, with an off white head.Raspberries and blackberries fairly prominent, with a faint kriek style aroma. Reminiscent of tizer, but in a good way! Thinner in body than a Belgian fruit beer would be, but plenty of flavour and a really interesting style.

Marsiblursi (2989) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2008
(Bottle) Pours copper to brownish red. The aroma is of raspberries up front but there is also some room for blackberries and currant. Some malty sweetness in the background. The flavour is rather juicy with raspberries, blackberries and currant alongside mild toasted and toffee-like malt. The mouthfeel is clean, medium carbonated and light crisp. Light sweet and light bitter. Light tart aftertaste. Light to medium bodied.

dunkpigen (379) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2008
Bottle at Århus Ølfestival 2008. Pours clear orange with a small head. Aroma and flavour are both sweet and fruity - a bit boring though.

wyzzywyz22 (1942) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2008
Bottle, Barleycorns, Nantwich. Poured a pinkish colour with not much of a head. A bit on the thin side, and was expecting a much stronger berry aroma and flavour. Verges on the insipid and was disappointed by this..

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2008
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.
