Bottle, 355ml. A strawberry red beer with a pink head that fades away almost inmediatly. It has a sweet aroma of red fruits like raspberries and strawberries, but it also reminds me of cough syrup. Taste is sweet and there is some carbonation and astringency. I guess it would be nice on a hot summer day, but in any other ocassion I think it would be too sweet. Aftertaste is slightly like cough syrup, which is not very pleasant.

Red color. Rasperry/fruity aroma. Tastes a lot like a cider, with some sweetness. Quite good, but does not feel like a beer.

Served on tap in a snifter

Appearance – The beer is served a ruby red color with hints of darker mahogany mixed within. Upon serving there is a pink tinted head floating atop the brew. The head fades over a moderate amount of time, leaving a great level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is sweet and fruity with tons of raspberry aroma filling the nose. Along with the raspberry are some other lighter blueberry notes as well as some tart cherry smells. Overall it is very sweet and tart, smelling very much like a Lambic.

Taste – The taste begins with a big raspberry sweetness mixed with just a hint of tart cherry. As the flavor advances the souress increases with it taking on a little bit of a lactic acid taste. While the sourness increases, so too does the raspberry flavor largely overpowering any cherry that was present upfront. In the end some candy sweetness comes to the tongue balancing out the sour just enough to leave a very pleasant, sweet and raspberry fruit sour candy taste on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner and crisper side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. The higher carbonation and thinner body are great for the combination of sweet and sour making it very easy to drink.

Overall – A rather tasty fruit beer with a decent sour characteristics. It is very much like a more affordable slightly less tart Lindeman’s framboise. Overall, quite tasty.

Fra fad, Søernes Ølbar. Lyserød sag med et lyst, lystigt lyserødt skum. Dufter inciterende af hindbær, men er alt for sød i munden. Frugtsyren er til den lette side og det giver øllet er karakter er flydende Katjes vingummi, som jeg helst lever foruden.

pinkish red, light pink head, aroma obviously dominated by raspberries, but with a slight maltiness. flavor profile is raspberries, with more of a tartness than i expected. was expecting more of a cloyingly sweet beer. still a decent amount of sweetness, but with plenty of acidity to balance it out. finish is nice and tart and longer than i would have guessed.

Rubaeus pours a dark ruby red with a thin bubbly beige head that doesn’t last long. The aroma is dominated by raspberries. The flavor is raspberry heavy with a hint of molasses and bread. Overall this is a pretty decent beer. The beer is very sweet.

Bottle from SuperBest Ama’r Foodmarket, Copenhagen - pours a fuzzy red colour with tiny white/pinkish head. Aroma and taste is medium sweet fruity with prominent raspberry, some light malts, smooth mouthfeel, decent fruit beer this.

GlasgowTAD (1986) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 13, 2014
Raspberry red as you would expect. No head, unsurprisingly. This is very sweet and tastes almost like raspberry diluting juice. However, it is quite refreshing. The sweetness makes this a summer beer but the ABV is a bit on the high side for this to be considered a session beer; ABV is also well hidden by the sweetness. Too much syrup IMO, a minute sourness is present but disappears quickly.
