Nice red color with huge raspberry aroma. Sweet. Refreshing sweet raspberry taste. A little too sweet for me though . A bit too much on the raspberry side.

Bottle. It poured a Ruby red color with a big pinkish head. Strong raspberry aroma. It is sweet with a hint of tartness on the tongue. Almost lambic like but not as effervescent.

Nurmis (674) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 14, 2017
33cl bottle. Pours dark red with small pink head. Starts with a malts and quickly goes on to raspberries with a sweet and sour finish. Goes down easy.

On Nitro. Vibrant pink color with light pink head. Nitro really makes it smooth tasting and finishing. Incredible raspberry flavor that isn't too sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Beautiful rasberry red color, rasberry aroma. Fruity flavor that follows the aroma, wheat toast in the slightly tart finish. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. Nice! I'd like to try it with goat cheese.

Bottle from Alko. Pours dark red with a thin white-pink head, really small head. Aroma has raspberries along with some tart notes, lingonberries. Sweet berries, raspberry and cherries in flavor, slight tartness in the dry finish. Still no fan of fruit beers, but this goes down. lots of berries!

Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu lasiin syvän punaisena ja kirkkaana, noin 1,5 sormen vaahdolla. Tuoksu on tasapainoisesti viljaisen maltainen ja raikkaan vadelmainen. Hiven on myös joukossa makeaa hedelmäisyyttä ja marjapensasta. Maku on ennen kaikkea vadelmainen, mutta viljainen maltaisuus on hyvin tukemassa pienenä makeutena. Lievää ruohoisuuttakin on mukana ja vadelman alla on hyvin lagermainen tuntuma (vaikka ale taitaa ollakin). Suutuntuma on makeahko, raikas ja keskitäyteläinen-. Hyvin kesäinen olut, jossa vadelma on juuri sopivasti esillä, mutta mallas tukee hyvin. Hieman yksipuolinen tämä kuitenkin on.

Pours with very thin lace. Color is clear, slightly lingonberry juice like red. Faint aroma has malt and raspberry, some hoppiness. But again, the aroma is quite faint. Palate is dryish, but there’s some oiliness. Similar to palate in carbonated juices. Taste has raspberry juice, some sourness, some fermented berry, some ale maltiness in the body, some weak hops on the edges. Quite forest-like aroma. I don’t consider this to be something to enjoy in a pub, but having this on a forest trip would be awesome. A very authentic presentation that does not taste artificial, but very real and forest-like. One of the best all-around fruit beers I’ve had.

3.5
TET (3030) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2017
A red beer, a head is almost medium and pink. Aroma has strong and natural raspberries, hint of sourness, lemon and wheat. Taste has very strong raspberries, some sweetness and sourness, nothing else is hard to find. Medium bodied. Almost only raspberries, but with nicely natural flavours. Tasteful.

3.5
Bacchus66 (337) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 23, 2017
Nitro, from tap. Ruby pink color with a finger of creamy pinkish head. Strong berry aromas and flavors. Tart finish, just z hint if sour. Very smooth texture. Not particularly complex, but very refreshing.

3.3
minihame2 (641) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 15, 2017
Clear, blood red colour with light rose lacing. Light aroma with berries. Sweet berry juice taste with light bitterness. Soft carbonation and mouthfeel, medium body. Nice but hardly feels like a beer.
