Pouring at the Shelton Festival 2017. Pours a hazed pink garnet with a medium sized white head. Raspberries on the nose, soft fruit and funk. Medium bodied, tangy with vanilla and coffee, caramel, toffee, raspberry jam. Long raspberry with some acid, tart and tangy.

16 oz can poured, shared by Matt. Thanks! This would have been good before the coffee addition, but with, I didn’t really know what to expect here. A bright pinkish red pour. Coffee comes through in the aroma, but is basically undetected in the flavor. At least it’s buried by a ton of jammy raspberry flavor. Coffee flavor does eventually sneak in, and actually pairs up nicely with the mixed berry fruit. Very nice tart character going on. A beer almost as complex as the commercial description. As strong as the raspberry is, the coffee actually lingers longer. Very fun beer, and top of the line in uniqueness. Very nice.

Can in Seattle. Thanks to Ryan for this. Soft pink foam, nice looking pink-red body. Odd, intruiging aroma. Lots of tart raspberry on nose, but underwritten by peppery coffee. Sip is more straightforward raspberry Berliner, but surely with some creamy roast coffee beans. Tart raspberry carries it though. Full mouthfeel, but fairly loose weight. I don’t get why this exists, it comes across as a novelty, but it does taste fine. I want to try this without coffee though.

Can. Nice pour, the color of raspberries with small head. The coffee is subtle, but adds an interesting depth. It comes across almost chocolately, which complements the tart berry quite well. This was a really unique, tasty beer.

This was called raspberry blush which aliases here although I certainly heard of nothing about coffee in what I drank nor detected anything like coffee. Quite fruity, soft, and not too sour. Very nice. Pink appearance,and clear.

Can purchased from Clinton Gourmet; shared with Paul. Pours a beautiful hazy pink body with thick pink head. Nose is chocolate covered raspberroes and cherry soda. Mouthfeel is a bit too effervescent with notes of raspberries, spice, paper and coffee.

Iznogud (3926) - CROATIA - JUL 29, 2017
On tap at Mikkeller San Diego. Pours hazy red with white to pinkish head. Great fruity raspberry aroma, raspberries in flavor as well, couldn’t really get the coffee, citric, malty, lactic, moderate sourness. Light to medium bodied. Loved the aroma, not so enthusiastic about the flavor.
