FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 9, 2015
330ml bottle - thanks Marduk
Wohhh, sweet raspberry aroma, perfumey, like a tart’s hankercheif. Red, small head. Thin palate, bit of fizz. Crazy sweet body, sharply citrussy to cut through the sugars. Stickyish finish. Sweet and juicy, but not what I’m after.

Benzai (15607) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2015
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Thompson. Hazy reddish color, average sized off-white to pinkish head. Smell and taste are both quite sweet, sweet candy, a bit artificial actually. Nah, too sweet for me. And a bit artificial imo, or at least I get that association. Not a fan.

bhensonb (15191) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 28, 2009
Bottle from Whole Foods. Ruby liquid with a pinkish head. Raspberry is the aroma. Flavor is sweet raspberry. Not even much seed bitter. Seems med. body with frothy carbonation. Not so bad. Goes fairly well with salad. Kind of fun.

DSG (14784) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 2, 2010
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.

2.9
imdownthepub (14553) - 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.

3.2
Borup (14485) - Albertslund, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2011
Bottle from Kokkens Vinhus. Reddish colour with a red head. Aroma and flavour of rapsberry, hops and sugar.

Tmoney99 (14479) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 12, 2009
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.
