A lovely fruity beer. Flavour of raspberry jam, rather than fresh juicy fruits. Deep, rich and warming in winter. Smells delightful and tastes great.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2017 Ruby red in colour . Smelly very fruity . Tastes equally fruity and sweet ++ not the best Kriek

Some bit too sugary raspberry syrup, with some light tartness in finsh. Feels ripe berryish, but bit too much sugar impact. Lovely though

375ml bottle from Sainsbury’s, Epsom. Pours clear ruby with a pink head. Aroma of berries. Sweet fruit taste and finish.

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

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2017 375ml bottle from Waitrose. Dark ruby colour 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.

Cunningham (8526) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2017
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]
