A: The Raspberry beer pours a deep, dark, garnet color with hints of purple. There is a large pink head which is quite fluffy.
S: You can definitely tell that this is a raspberry beer. The aroma is full of sweet raspberries. There is not much else to the nose other than the sweet, fruity smell.
T: The taste is almost identical to the scent. The raspberry flavor is the star of the show and it is quite sweet.
M: This is quite a fizzy beer, which works well for the style. It helps to cut down on the sweetness, as otherwise this would taste like syrup.
D: The beer is a bit too sweet for my tastes. I enjoy a good amount of fruit in beers, but it tends to be more in lambic form so that the tartness helps to balance things out. I’m glad I shared this with my girlfriend as I don’t think I would have been able to drink it all. Dedollewaitor (16539) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2011
Bottle @ Odense Tasting, June 2011. Pours deep blood red with a pink head. Sweet and sticky raspberries. It has a pleasant light natural tart bite. Though sweet - it’s fresh and drinkable. Smooth. MiP (16054) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2010

5oo ml bottle poured a clear dark garnet with a lasting pinkish head. Aromas of raspberry and cookie. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of raspberry and shortcake with a crisp lingering raspberry finish. imdownthepub (15513) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2011
Bottled, 500ml from S.H.Jones, Banbury. Tawny red with pinkish head. Sweet raspberry notes from the off, quite cordial like with a fuller malty body to carry it, the raspberry tastes a little forced, unnatural for some reason, like a child’s sweet. A little too much for me, but I get this with a lot of fruit beers. gunnfryd (15474) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 19, 2009

Bottle at a tasting. Thanks David Cohen. Clear red color with a small pinkish head. Sweet aroma of raspberries and some candy-ish notes. Sweet sugary raspberry candy flavor with light acidic hints in the back. The finish has a bit less sweetness and some light subtly hoppy hints. Medium-bodied.

Bottle from Party Source.
Poured clear reddish brown with a large off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Good raspberry friut aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with medium sweet finish of moderate duration.
This beer met my expectations and went well with my grilled cheese.
