This is my second or third fruit beer. Make no mistake, at 7% abv this is real beer (unlike a lambic). Very refreshing and has a nice sour, malty, raspberry taste and finish to it. Definitely a unique tasting beer although I don’t think I’ll be rushing out to the liquor store anytime soon at $14 for a six-pack. Still worthy of a try.

Summer go to. Best raspberry beer on the market. Pours with a super aromatic head, but equally as good from the can on a hot day in the pool. If you are looking for an all day, refreshing hang out beer, look no further.

(Founders Rübæus) Bottle 355ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 5.7% Bright red colour on the body, clear, tall and thick pink head on top with very good retention. Aroma of raspberries, candy sugar, jello. Taste is sweet with lots of berries, summer fruits, jello. Thin body. Pretty good, very refreshing.

humpah (281) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2017
0,355l bottle from Alko. Pours ruby color with small head. Flavor of raspberry, berry, sweetness, malts, light tartness. Fresh and juicy feeling, medium body, mostly berry from start to finish.

poisoneddwarf (2568) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - AUG 8, 2017
12 oz can from a 9 pack bought at work. Aroma is raspberry, grain, SweeTarts. Hazy pink pour with a medium pinkish-white head with great retention and some lace. Taste has a high level of sweetness, stopping just short of cloying, and it has a medium level of tartness, all a bit like throwing a handful of ripe raspberries in your mouth. It’s better than the majority of fruit beers out there, but it’s not at the very top of that style.

AnG_BrgNor (762) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2017
Bottle. Red with white foam. Aroma and taste is raspberry, a lot of raspberry, and some lemon. A good raspberry taste in this one, not so artificial. A tart ending. A good fruitbeer.

pictoman (1148) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2017

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2017 Kuivahko suutuntuma, mutta jotenkin sokerinen marjaisa jälkimaku. Hapokas, raikas, ei kovin vadelmainen koska mielestäni vadelmat ei ole näin makeita.

2.5
bbbeer (838) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 1, 2017
An oddly red color with small off white head. Aroma strongly raspberry. Light body. Sweet fruity raspberry jelly-like flavor with a bit of malt. Not my favorite.

3.6
cmacklin (1209) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 27, 2017
On tap. Pours a slightly hazy red with a medium, creamy, long lasting, pink head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet fruity aroma of wheat malt, raspberry, strawberry and cherry. Sweet fruity flavour of wheat malt and raspberries with a dry, tart, slightly acidic finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Tasty and refreshing, an excellent fruit beer.
