Nice fruity beer. Actually not a big fan of them, but this one goes down nicely. Although i liked the cherry version even more from Bacchus.

BBE 09/09/2017. Punainen väri, semivaahto. Vadelmaisa aromi, vadelmaisa mehulimonadi. Ihan juotavaa.

375ml bottle. Dark ruby with very small white head. Basically an alcoholic raspberry flavour fizzy drink, somewhat overly sweet but the sourness helps to counter this.

Bought at Altruy. Dark and a touch sweet but not too sweet. Best shared as a small tasting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kran. Rubinowa barwa, różowa pianka, malinowy aromat. W smaku świeże maliny, zarówno słodycz jak i cierpkość, bardzo dobry balans, nie jest ani za słodki, ani za kwaśne, pijalne, owocowe, lekkie i łagodne. Nie czuć sztuczności, ani od owoców ani od słodyczy. Mi bardzo smakowało.

F: medium size, tanned, not long lasting. C: dark with red hue against the light, clear. A: a lot of raspberries, light candy, bit of lemon juice. T: 12,5% raspberries, light tarty, touch of lemon sour tones to balanced sweetness, hint of like cherries, beside the sugar also extract from stevia, medium body, medium carbonation, this is too sweet to be very good for me but still ok and enjoyed, 37,5cl bottle from Prik & Tik ABC Drinks in Leuven.

Dark and subtle red color. Rich raspberry aroma. Medium body and an average carbonation level. Tad sweet and a moderate acidity. To much raspberry juice…….
[Bottle at Fat Cat in Norwich, England]

Butelka. Ciemno-rubinowy kolor wpadajacy w czerwony kolor. Piana srednia lekko rozowa zanika bardzo szybko. W zapachu dominuje syrop malinowy w tle lekko winne nuty. Pierwszy lyk bardzo slodkawy z przewaga owocow dopiero po chwili pojawia sie lekko kwasny posmak winny. Lekkie i rzeskie o zdecydowanym owocowym charakterze.

Pro mě jedno z nejlepších oslazených piv, co jsem kdy měl.. Bohatá chuť, jemná, řídká pěna.. Skvělá delikateska.

mviljamaa (180) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - APR 23, 2017
Pours with little foam. Color is nice clear dark red. Aroma has fresh raspberry, some preserved cherry and painted leather. Palate is fairly well balanced and has both oily and dry components. Carbonation is quite sharp, but nice. Taste has nice fresh raspberry flavour and some ale-like undernote that’s not too pronounced. Slight hop notes. Nice bit of dryness, but not too much. A very enjoyable and refreshing drink.
