hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, - JUN 2, 2012
My first beer since Christmas, to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. Orange red colour. I rather liked the aroma: sweet and jammy. Taste is fruity with a touch of sourness and a pleasant dry finish. Not the world’s greatest fruit beer, but after five months of soft drinks, it was bloody good.

gunnar (9085) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 4, 2015
Bottle from Vinmonopolet.Pours hazy reddish with a moderate sized white head. Aroma is raspberry fruity and tart, yeast. Taste is tarty,lots of green lemons, wood. Dry mouthfeel. A very refreshing beer.

ClubGonzo (5670) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours a murky orange body with a small white head. Aroma is wheat, raspberries, lemon acid and hints of pale malts. Taste is caramel, red berries, wheat and hints of grains, straw and cereals. Medium body and carbonation. Meh. Not much raspberries, but fair enough beer.

Beer5000 (6483) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2013
330 ml can sampled in 2007. Slightly unclear, deep golden/orange body with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma is light fruity with a hint of acidic berries. Flavor is mild and acidic raspberries and not so much more. Medium body and aftertaste. Not really bad. but not a hit either.

rgrep (156) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 31, 2012
Pours like a cloudy orange-red soda. It either has no head whatsoever or I looked away briefly and it dissipated completely. No nose to speak of and it tastes like soda water with a hint of dry raspberry. Not dry as in a pleasant tartness, just not sweet. Very disappointing.

Sigmund (7458) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2012
330 ml bottle, as Meantime Raspberry Grand Cru, from Vinmonopolet Vika. ABV is 5.5%. Very cloudy peachy to brown colour, large to moderate off-white head with a peachy hue. The aroma has strong notes of ripe and over-ripe raspberries (no surprise). The flavour has also notes of raspberries, but not as much as some Belgian fruit beers, and is not overly sweet. Refreshing wheaty notes, hints of citrus. Nice enough to drink, but not worth the price.

Leighton (21231) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2011
Bottle at home in London, shared with Lyoli. Pours cloudy, rich pink with a moderate but receding light pink head. Aroma holds some snappy raspberries, along with mild wheat and light bread. Flavor is lightly sweet with a mild tartness. Refreshing, with dashes of wheat and fine sugar, along with raspberry. Light bodied with average, tingly and massaging carbonation. Sharp finish, mild tart raspberries, some wheat and yeast. The wheat ale and the raspberries seem a bit disparate, but it’s still an alright beer.
