Bottle shared at Dean’s sticky table tasting thanks to Deanso. Pours clear dark red with a light pink head. Aroma is massive raspberry, light tart, a little cherry. Flavour is moderate sweet and acidic. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.
A very nice fruit beer. I wanted to compare this to New Glarus’ rapsberry tart, but this is more tart. Pale red, light pink head, slick mouthfeel. Very nice. Tried at Omaha’s Extreme Beerfest with Jess and the parents in 2017. tekstr1der (481) - New Hampshire, USA - FEB 18, 2017
2015 bottle, I’ll get another one to cellar. Ruddy red-brown pour with just a ring of off-white left. Aroma is raspberry and raspberries. Mouth-watering. Flavor is just delicious with raspberry dominating a just-sweet-enough tangy and slightly tart. Really smooth, no trace of booze, and not cloying. One of the best fruit beers I’ve tried. Shame on me for passing it by so many times without trying. Korcz (3310) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 20, 2017
Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. 2015. Syf. Koncentrat malinowy i absolutnie nic poza nim. DiarmaidBHK (4783) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2017
Bottle from Wegman’s Mechanicsburg. Pours deep ruby red with a thick white head. Lots of lacing in the glass. Fairly muted raspberry on the nose. Huge raspberry on the tongue with just a hint of tartness. Hides it’s booze really well. Imagine Lindeman’s Framboise with 3 times the alcohol and you’re pretty close. I suspect it Ages nicely as well. gephross100 (943) - Bellaire, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2016

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2016 Bottle, 2015. Nose is pronounced raspberry,strawberry, almond, marzipan. Taste is very sweet marzipan, raspberry, lactose, cheese cake, vanilla, cough medicine,yeast, slight tartness. Mouthfeel is oily. This beer was 2015 consumed in late 2016d, and had no real hop profile, which I suspect my have been deleterious. Well put together and didn?t taste like fruit juice, but I can?t see myself ever drinking it again, too sweet for me. Lowenbrau (4124) - Asturias, SPAIN - OCT 29, 2016

In short: artificial like fruit beer.
Pours hazy reddish with nice off white head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Raspberries, sweet, cloying nose. Medium body, average caronation, oily texture. Taste is berries, sweet, quite artificial flavours.
Pink, pink head, aroma of cherries, berries, flavor of cherries, berries, sweetish, tingling, medium bodied. LRonCupboard (64) - Belfast, NORTHERN IRELAND - OCT 27, 2016
Bottle from Vineyard, Belfast. Bright red, small white/pink head. Powerful concentrated raspberry aroma, with syrup, cherry and some wood. Medium body, syrupy/oily texture, lightly carbonated. Taste is fairly sweet, but fairly well balanced by acidic and slightly tart raspberry. Raspberry again very concentrated, almost freeze dried. Long finish. Hides alcohol. Only real criticism is it being a bit one dimensional - you going to need to like concentrated raspberries. First beer my wife has liked ever - extra mark! ctipping (1914) - Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2016
750 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 9/3/2011.
Deep red body. Like a carbonated red wine. Maybe a touch lighter, but close. Pours with a nice pink head. Fascinating for a beer. Leaves nice lacing.
Raspberries, whoah. Before the raspberries kick in, it smells musty, too.
Taste is all raspberries. Like raspberry juice, without all the sugar. It’s still pretty sweet, but not like an actual raspberry. Not a lot of beer flavors coming through here, but still tasty. Nice tartness in the finish to fight off the sweetness.
No booze, amazingly. Tart finish and a little dry. Still a bit heavy, but it’s 9.2%, so I guess that’s to be expected. Not easy to drink.
Tough beer to review. Unnecessarily large and difficult to drink, but it has a wonderful fruit flavor.
