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

Punchy fresh raspberry like aroma. Flavour loses a bit of raspberry but gains a more complex fruitiness mixing elderberry and perhaps rosehip. This is really a rather good fruit beer

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!

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

Geiserich (3111) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JUN 27, 2010
Bottle: Huge creamy and off-white head. Completly opaque, pink to peach color. Aroma is very fruity with intensive notes of raspberries and other berries. FGlavor is fruity, intensive notes of berries (raspberries, black currants and blackberries) and some dryness in the end with notes of light bitter fruit peels. Very light bitter finish. Very interesting, very fruity beer. Nice notes of berries but a hint to light bodied.

In bottle. The colour is a light orange with a pink hue. The head is white and although quite lively when poured, settles quickly. The beer smells like strawberrys although the flavour is more of a mixed berry sweetness with some pleasant but subtle sourness. The hops round this out nicely. My favourite of the Williams Bros. range.

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

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.

Bottle.I dont usually like fruit beers but this was very pleasant. Reddish in colour with a fruitiness that is active without taking over.Rasberry dominates. Left lots of lacing and a pleasing aftertaste.
