stravale (3019) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - OCT 23, 2013
Cask @ The Benjamin Huntsman, Sheffield [161013]
Golden blonde, clear, dense white head, some lacing
Aroma - Nice really fresh real raspberry aroma, really fresh, no artificial notes
Taste - Fresh raspberry, not too much, some raspberry bitterness too, light pale malts underneath, good stuff
Palate - Light body ,quite sweet palate. Finish as main flavour, little bitter linger. perhaps a tad over bitter here
Overall - Biased with this rate as I really like raspberry and they were real in here, even with a bitter edge you get from the seeds. It might benefit from a tiny hint more sweetness in the malt background

danlo (2999) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear orangey golden colour, white bubbly foam head and aroma of sweet syrupy raspberry. Taste is fruity raspberry mixed with biscuity malt plus some chalky dry bitterness. Light bodied, medium carbonation, drying bitter finish. Quite OK.

s_hartshorne (2766) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle asda. Clear golden amber colour thin white head bits of lacing. Aroma is v good raspberry yoghurt. Taste is biscuit spice and hops with a creamy raspberry bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Overall a good beer I would have liked more raspberry in the taste although it dose advertise subtle flavours.

niquillis (2551) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2017
Cask at Lymestone Vaults, Newcastle under Lyme. Pours clear golden with a white head. Decent session blonde base and it tastes like someone has chucked in loads of cheap supermarket sugar free cordial in. Yuk.

TheCametron (2476) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 6, 2011
Cask at Cloisters. Golden with a very thin white head. Big raspberry nose. Immediate palate is of a standard cask gold ale. Subsides to a quite nice raspberry afterthought with a lingering tang. quite nice.

TheJestersBeer (2430) - SWEDEN - JUN 18, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a pale gold, with a white head. Fruity, citrusy aroma, raspberries, malt. Dry, light body, low bitterness, balanced CO2. Quite neutral taste, citrus, raspberries, wheat. Refreshing, maybe a bit bland. (2012-06-08)

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Cask at the Rake, 28th April 2010. Clear orange with a line of head. Raspberry aroma. In the mouth, the sweet raspberries are balanced by a dry hop flavour. Definitely one for the sweeter toothed. Pretty quick finish. Overall a bit of a novelty beer but Saltaire have done a good job on something that could be hideous.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 12, 2009
On handpull, pours a clear amber/gold. A strong raspberry syrup-like aroma. The raspberry is more subtle in the flavour, with a reasonable malt presense, and a light mouthfeel.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2009
Cask, Kings Arms, Salford. Yellowy gold with a medium white head. Sweet, saccharine, raspberry aroma. Flavour a pretty ill conceived sickly affair. Give me a Boon Framboise instead any day of the week chief.

jamesie1857 (2062) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2012
500ml bottle - found this more of a blonde than a fruit beer, yes it has a wee aftertaste and a bit of a raspberry aroma, but the beer is the hero here. Nice crisp golden, bit of a freshness at the end. Good.
