JorisPPattyn's rating

Pink grapefruit-coloured, medium head over deep red beer with a brownish sheen. Heavy, syrupy-sweet smelling, raspberry jam, raspberry juice. Nearly tart, sweetish-sourish flavour; raspberries, but rather like pressed, concentrated juice, jelly or jam. Not an artificial impression, however. Feels rather well-carbonated; fruit-filled, nearly refreshing when served cold. Surprisingly better than expected. Just the nose keeps disappointing, as well as this filament of syrup propping up all the time.

Kran. Rubinowa barwa, rżowa pianka, malinowy aromat. W smaku świeże maliny, zarwno 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 owocw 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 nejlepch oslazench piv, co jsem kdy měl.. Bohat chuť, jemn, řdk pěna.. Skvěl delikateska.

mviljamaa (158) - Jyvskyl, 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 thats not too pronounced. Slight hop notes. Nice bit of dryness, but not too much. A very enjoyable and refreshing drink.

Dark red brown colour. Aroma and flavour are really intense with raspberries. The 12.5% fruit content is really noticeable. Perhaps slightly more sweet than sour. Very pleasant Fruit beer.

Bottle at Fat Cat in Norwich, thanks to Grumbo for sharing. Red brown body. Naked surface. Sweet berry skins on the nose. Raspberry juicy flavours with a sweet and tart ending. Refreshing to a certain degree (18.02.2017)

mabuzzer (811) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - FEB 25, 2017
330ml bottle. Deep, dark red with a lasting pinkish head. Aroma of (obviously) raspberries, which obviously dominate the flavour too but not overpoweringly so. Nice
