Draft at Hawthrone’s. Pours a hazy maroon with thin white head and minimal lacing. Nose of raspberries, jolly ranchers, cranberry, grenadine. Lightish body, nice sweet flavor without being cloying. Not bad at all.

Cimbasso (1007) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2017
Sampled on draughty at the Horseshoe in Hampstead. Pours a copper/red with a white head. Aroma of raspberries. The taste is overpoweringly sweet. I could not detect any malt flavour as the taste is completely dominated by a raspberry jam taste. Maybe November in London is not the best time to sample a seasonal summer beer, but I was expecting a malt taste, some bitterness and perhaps some refreshingly tart fruit flavours. Instead, this beer was just very sweet. Not to my taste, I’m afraid.

Villyzzz (452) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours deep red with a big pink head. Aroma has frozen raspberries with a bit funky note. Taste is a mix of sweet and bitter raspberries with mild citrus and ale yeast notes. Refreshing. Pretty nice I quess but the style is just not for me.

josanguapo (1926) - SPAIN - OCT 17, 2017
From Saveur Biere. In Teku glass. Playing Space Pilgrin Episode 3. Raspberries profile fairly natural, specially in nose, but in long run it becomes a bit tiresome, with its acidity bothering in throat a bit

Holdwine (1237) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 20, 2017
Nicely different brew. Very colorful denoting the large amount of raspberries used. The bready malt keeps it from being too sweet.... almost. So, yeah, I would tone down the fruit a bit, but overall quite good.

planky84 (3429) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2017
Keg at the Star and Garter, Bromley. Red pour with a white head. Raspberry, strawberry, glace cherry and icing sugar aroma. Flavours of strawberry jam, stack of raspberry, cherry sweets. Easy going brew.
