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

mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2013
Bottle at PIB, pours an opaque ruby red with a small pink head. Aroma of pure raspberries, not much else to say about the nose. Flavour brings out raspberry purée, with a medium sweetness that never cloys. Very pungent and natural tasting. Nothing artificial here.

Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2008
En meget behagelig frugtøl for os, der kan li’ hindbær. Dark red with a pink head. The aroma has notes of raspberries and a natural berry sourness and sweetness. The flavour has sweetness and berry-sourness and nice notes of raspberries with a hint of citrus. A pleasant fruit beer if you like raspberries.

yespr (44800) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2008
35.5 cL bottle. Pours hazy deep amber/pinkish with a dense pink head. Sweet and candy like raspberry aroma. Flavour too is quite sweet and citric with a quite solid raspberry note so strong it can almost only be artificial - yet it doesnt taste anything else but sweet and as such doesnt give an artificial impression. Sweet and citric finish.

Lowe1983 (1589) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Pours a reddish-amber color with a pink head. Aroma is sweet of caramel malts and raspberries mostly. Tart raspberry flavor and some sugar dominate the flavor. Better than the cherry but it’s still not what I was hoping for.

dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Bottle pours red with a feminine pink head sitting atop. As far as fruit ales go, not too shabby. Start with a decent ale and add good fruit, you’re bound to come up with something drinkable. Aroma is heavy in raspberries, similar to the nose on a decent lambic. Easy drinking for those who like fruit in their beer. Only complaint is they tend to become extremely cloying, the more you drink.

downender (8584) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2009
Bottle from Centurion Vintners, Stroud. Red in colour with a momentary pinkish-white head. Strong raspberry and cherry fruit aroma with accompanying sweetness. Flavour had bucketloads of sweet raspberry fruit, before a hint of dryness in the finish. Ok.
