Smells lovely, just not like beer. My favourite smell is probably thyme, but I wouldnt want beer to smell like thyme (I think). So should I score this highly because it smells nice just not of beer? I dont actually care what you think, Ive gone for 8. Tastes of.... raspberries. Go figure.

Sammer (1119) - Plano, Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Bottle shared by bu11zeye. Pours a nice ruby red with a pinkish white head. Aroma is heavy on the raspberries, with hints of pie spices. Taste is sweet raspberries and jam. Very clean, and one to pour after dinner.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle from The Vineyard. Raspberry colored, nice pink head. Nice raspberry nose, smells like ribena. Flavour is quite dry, fairly acidic, a touch of yeast and a little sweetness around the edges. Nicely balanced. Light and fizzy.

vikingguy (1097) - Carver, Minnesota, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Bright red with tall foamy pink head. Raspberry jam aroma. Taste is rich raspberry. Mostly sweet but a bit of tartness balances it. Awesome flavor but only for a dessert ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AskForJenny (1082) - Ontario, New York, USA - AUG 4, 2009
0.55l - Reddish-pink pour, raspberry jam nose, maybe some mint hiding in there. Raspberry cough syrup palate, watery texture. Good not great. Would benefit from some sourness.

pictoman (1067) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2014
Poured from 550mL bottle. Medium dark red with pink head. Aroma of actual fresh raspberries, no concentrate noticeable whatsoever like most other raspberry beers. Taste does seem to have a little extra sweetness added, but it still gets that sweet and tart nature of raspberries to show through. Medium body, finish a little on the shorter end of things. Definitely one of my top fruit beers.

scooterbub (1064) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - AUG 20, 2011
550 ml bottle. Pours a dark red color (looks like homemade wine) and has a nice, foamy, two inch pinkish head that slowly collapses. Taste is of fresh raspberry, malt, wood, wheat, nuts and grass. Similar aroma of fresh raspberries. Has a nice full body that coats the mouth and has a bit of tartness to it. Complex, very easy to drink and incredibly enjoyable. An excellent brew as it tastes like a beer and the fruit isnt artificial tasting.
