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.

Clear red pour with nice sized pinkish head that is quickly gone. Raspberry/fruity nose. Flavor is much the same with bit of citrus. Nice clean and refreshing finish.

Rehkopff (70) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2017
Frugtøl og meget mere frugt end øl. Svag duft og tydeligt rødligt skær i den ufiltrerede øl. Smager af hindbær, med en syrlig undertone. Den bedste frugtøl jeg har smagt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear dark red appearance. Aroma and flavour is just like sparkling blackcurrant drink. Not really beer but a nice, sweet drink.

Svesse (8357) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 2, 2017
(Bottle) Reddish amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity nose with notes of raspberries, mandarin, blood orange, bread and caramel. Fruity, malty taste with raspberries, pink grapefruit, caramel, bready malt, strawberries and a slightly tart finish with low bitterness. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty and refreshing with a generous raspberry character. Nice one.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2017 Bottle at monterey bar in Berlin. Pours clear Red. Nose is strawberry jam, lots of it, but still pretty natural. Palate is nice mixture of strawberry and tartness. A bit too sweet, but still a nice fruitbeer.

Bottle at home (bottled 09/28/16). Pours a clear brownish red with a pinkish fast disappearing head. Aroma of bready malts, light tart raspberries, candy sugar. Taste is heavy sweet, light tart and light bitter towards the end, sweet candy fruity bitter aftertaste. Not bad.

12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods. Pours a bright red color with a small white head. A big fresh fruity nose. Very smooth, huge fruit, light grainy base. Very good fruit beer, the raspberries and very clear and natural. Great.
