jmgreenuk (8520) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 17, 2016
Tap at the Pup and Duckling, Solihull. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is raspberry, yeast, light hop. The flavour is moderate bitter light sweet with a light crisp dry tart raspberry fruit light hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2009
Cask in the market porter. Alround rating: Pale thin malt character, loads of raspberry but its not real raspberry as theres no colour and it taste fairly artifical, grassy and noteably bitter which doesnt suit a fruit beer. Drinkable all the same.

Svesse (8148) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2010
(Cask at The Rake, Southwark, London, 22 May 2009) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity nose with lots of raspberries and notes of citrus and biscuity malt. Fruity taste with raspberries, biscuity malt, grass and a touch of citrus. Light body and fairly dry. Its a bit weird but it works quite fine.

TheCametron (2448) - 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.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2011
[email protected] Artificial aroma but not too bad. Surprising blond, white head, good lace. Sweetish, raspberry, light bitter. Quite balanced and not really artificial. Not bad actually.

rauchbier (3844) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle, from Morrisons, Scunthorpe. Gold, thin shortlived white head and gentle condition. Dominant raspberry fruitiness in the nose that strangely becomes very soft and muted in the mouth, its still there but allows the sweet maltiness to create a delicately pleasing mouthfeel, finish is again muted but a gentle sweet raspberry note lingers.

tinylightsrecs (437) - - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle from Rehills Newcastle. Pours golden colour with a hint of pink. Strong raspberry flavours (obviously), but a very nice beer after a big meal

Cimbasso (868) - - DEC 29, 2015
Sampled from a bottle. Hazy golden colour with a white head.Raspberry aroma, and a taste of biscuity malts with raspberries. Some grassy notes and a dry, bitter finish. The dryness of the hop taste is slightly at odds with the sweetness of the raspberries, but this is, nevertheless, a quite drinkable beer.

berkshirejohn (6279) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2016
Cask at the Bootlegger, High Wycombe. A pale amber pour with a ring of white head; slightly artificial raspberry aroma; sweet raspberry cordial taste to start, then a refreshingly fruity bitterness; leaving a clean crisp finish. A pleasant refreshing summer ale, but the authenticity of the raspberries is a bit dodgy.
