3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer has a nice smell and a taste that is certainly beer from fruit. That part is nice, but the beer itself is very mild and doesn’t leave you looking for more. The palate is boring, dissipating the flavor quickly. If you’ve never tried a fruit beer you might really enjoy it, but I’ve had cherry beer from the same brand and found it much nicer.
Both nose and taste dominated by a synthetic candy-like raspberry smell/taste. The appearance is medium brown colour with very small hints of any red colour which might come from raspberries.
The beer is medium to light bodied and rather dull with too little hops to set off the synthetic tasting sweetness.
I’m sorry but this was so far off the mark that I rather hope I won’t have to drink it again. swapp (367) - Kaunas, LITHUANIA - OCT 14, 2014
500 ml bottle, clear rose color with white head. taste are like light pale beer with some raspberry tea. its quet refreshing, but a little to sweet and over carboned, aftertaste are some garden raspberries and little bitter from pale beer. Marduk (8093) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 29, 2013
500ml bottle. Bit hazy, bright yellow color. Tiny to almost no head. Sweet, sour, raspberry, slightly metallic notes in aroma. Geeeez this is sweet. It’s like sugar, sugar and just in case more sugar. And some raspberries. Never again. Brainiac (218) - Riga, LATVIA - MAR 13, 2013
O,5l glass bottle. Not an expert on fruits beer, but this one is very light, totally not over sweetened. It’s beer, not cider. estpiwo (1319) - ESTONIA - AUG 21, 2012
0,5L bottle. First - artificial raspberry aroma. Light pink foam, body with pink tones also. Not a beer, artificial juice-like drink. Bad.

500ml Bottle - Golden with some noticeable pink tones and a white head. Raspberry jelly, malt and vilda bär fanta in the aroma. Sweet taste with more in common with a panda pop than a beer. Notes of artificial raspberry dominate. Rather sickly and more like a soft drink. FatPhil (16689) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 22, 2011
500ml bottle (Stockmann, Riga)
4 Sickly sweet childrens sweets, raspberry clearly, dominate the aroma, but fortunately they’re not too repulsive.
2 Pale, tiny head.
4 Mercifully low raspberry essence actually lets the taste of the beer come through. Alas, part of what comes through is burnt plastic in the retronasals. However, the rest of the taste is a simple sweet pale malty lager. Wow - there is actually some beer in this one!
2 Thin palate, sharp carbonation. Sticky finish, mostly the raspberry flavour in the early finish, and just a bit of pale malts too if you concentrate.
7 Too sweet, and I’ve been generous with the points here, but this is so almost drinkable compared with the last too.
