A very light, super raspberry carbonated "beverage." Not a bad thing though, some people maynot like this altogether, but out of the many fruit beers I have tried - not that bad.

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.

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.

(thanks for sharing!) Sampled draft @ The Beavertown Extravaganza 2017. Day 2. Bright red appearance. Nose is lightly metallic, raspberry sweet. Fizzy thin far too metallic, raspberry sweet sugar, basic sweet raspberry,… Fizzy metallic body. Okay-ish for a sweet fruit beer but a bit too metallic, fizzy.

Twelve ounce can bought as part of mixed six pack at Western Hills Kroger, tasted on August 5, 2017. Red color, assertive raspberry nose, strong raspberry flavor with just enough beer character to make you remember you aren't drinking Kool Aid. Very good for style.

Can courtesy of Beervana, Thailand. Poured a clear red colour with a bubbly light pink head. The aroma is yeast, raspberry. The flavour is moderate sweet with a crisp, fresh, red berry fruit palate. Medium to light bodied with lively carbonation and a bubbly mouthfeel. Medium bodied with lively carbonation.

C-. Pours a clear burgundy color with pink head. Not a big fan of the raspberry flavors

This would have been great if I was 17 and didn't actually like beer. Calling this an ale is a stretch. More of a very sweet wine cooler. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A 2015 vintage.
Into a shallow chalice, chilled. Candy-apple red body and only just misted by the yeast pad going in but it otherwise shimmers in the light. Head is a short-lived pinkish foam that leaves just a little lace. Wonderfully plump and sweet, ripe raspberry and candyish raspberry notes tickle the nose; almost jammy with hints of strawberry and yeasty cellar must. Quite sweet and jammy on the palate but offers an earthy, floral zest and real, ripe berry flavours. SO much fruit of the nose. Mildly tart in back dropping off vinous almost like a himbeerwein. Medium-light bodied but well rounded, filling out as it warms. Carbonation is on the softer side but just spritzy enough to get the penetration the fruit needs. Quite the dessert beer. Deliciously different! (35,5cL, BB 26/12/15, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

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.
