jjsint (3012) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2017
Keg at BrewDig Leicester. Brownish red and very cloudy with a pink spotty head and a fair bit of lacing. Fresh raspberry aroma, sharp and intense. Lovely but fairly one-dimensional. It has a nice sweet-tart interplay in the taste. There’s an initial trashy off-note that takes it down a notch but it disappears fairly quickly. Aftertaste is resplendent with raspberry. Nice.

AshtonMcCobb (6514) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2017
On keg at Brewdog Edinburgh. Appearance - deep red smoothie look. Lovely lacy head. Nose - initially too much of a confectionery note. Yeasty earthy back note. Taste - definitely not confectionery bit rather packed with real fruit. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish. Overall - enjoyable.

nihtila (3603) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2017
Keg at Heriot Watt. Clear deep red. Nose is big raspberries in a malty base, some sweetness. Taste is sweet raspberry juice or soda, cant realky get much else. Good but could be less sweet. Not really beer anymore.

leaparsons (10504) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2017
Keg, Brewdog Leicester. Red, pink with a pinkish foam. Spritzy and sweet raspberry with hints of cream. Tart berries and green apple. Nice sweet and sour balance. Tasty framboise.

Towey1989 (2720) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2016
Keg at The Smithfield, Manchester (Blackjack) A clear red colour with a thin pink head. Aroma of raspberry, some grain, slight red berries and subtle lemon. Taste of tart raspberry, some sharp lemon, slight grain and jammy red berries. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A sweet and tart raspberry finish. No doubt fruity with tart raspberry dominating. It’s like juice but can tell it’s a fruit beer. So well made, lovely.

imdownthepub (14471) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2016
Keg at The Brigantes Bar, York. Cloudy brown to red with pink head. Fizzed up tart raspberry flavours from the start, fresh and authentic and a light citrus sourness. The body is medium but it hardly matters here, it’s all about the fruit. Very good.

Theydon_Bois (19201) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2016
Keg at the Waterloo Tap, 04/08/16. Maroon with a crimson cap. Nose is tangy raspberry, bitter sweet berry notes, straw, raspberry pips, grains. Taste comprises raspberry jam, toasted grains, straw, pink berry fizz. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok for style, not too sweet.

3.5
The_Osprey (7890) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2016
Keg at Pigs Ear Richmond as Kirkstall Framboise. Brewed in Belgium and, at this time, one of the top 50 fruit beers in the world according to Ratebeer dot com. Opaque dark purple, scummy white head with a pink hue. Aroma is intense raspberry tart. I could list other raspberry products as comparators, but you’ve already got the point. Body is fairly smooth, tingly carbonation, quite smooth. Taste is raspberry sorbet in a big way, FAB lollies. A bit syrupy, but the carbonation helps here, for a change. Has all the obvious syrupy raspberry fruit, some vanilla and creamy vibes too. I can’t help but like this even if it’s too sweet by my usual standards.

3.5
rlgk (18847) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2016
Draught at Waterloo Tap, London. Cloudy reddish ruby beer with a decent offwhite/pinkish head. Raspberry aroma, strawberries, caramel, some raisins. Fruity raspberry flavor, strawberries, sweetish, some caramel. Too sweet to be refreshing.

3.4
ManVsBeer (10281) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2016
Keg @ Black Swan, Leeds. Deep cherry red with a frothy head. I have to agree with the guy that served it me. Very fruity, not s session ale, but a good pick-me-up after a lot of hoppy ales. Belgian in style but not quite up to continental standards.
