3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2011 Bottle. The pour was a medium to dark red almost a cranberry in color with an average sized (1-2 finger) fizzy pink head that dissipated quite quickly and had fair lacing.
The aroma was extremely strong with the scent of Raspberry’s and had a mild sweet yeast odor to it and not much else.
It tasted moderately sweet and slightly malty with a nice dose of Raspberry from beginning to end with a hint of yeast at the finish that left the flavor lingering on the taste buds for a nice long time after the swallow.
Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and slightly watery in texture yet had a dry feel to it at the finish with a nice lively carbonation.
Overall kind of a sweet brew with a lot of flavor, but it is more like Lambic than a Fruit Beer. Although it might be quite tasty mixed with a dry stout.
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2018 Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is raspberry juice, fruity vitamins. Taste is raspberry syrup in soda with some mineral vitamin quality. I liked the first few sips but had to push through the rest. Not much beer backbone here. thebeerbandit (36) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2018

Had a few sips of Abby’s after she had a long day at work.
Poured from their classic 550mL bottle. Deep red with a moderate pink head. Looks great!
Nose is sweet raspberries with a hint of some dark cherry.
Taste is sweet, tart raspberries! Kind of darker tasting - almost like raspberry jelly. Not overpowering or too saccharine. This is delicious!
Palate is thin with noticeable carbonation. Goes down easy with a surprisingly dry finish for how sweet it is.
Overall, this is by far my favorite fruit beer or cider that I’ve ever had. Definitely not as fruit juice-like as others. Might have a bit of newcomer bias as this is my first foray into “craft” fruit beers but I’m a big fan. Bought it for Abby but would definitely buy it for myself as well! k_gadeberg (249) - ï¿½rhus, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2017
On bottle @Salling.
Pours red, with small foam.
Nice, sweet raspberry notes. Sweet beer, excellent fruit beer. Small bitterness. Idiosynkrasie (8190) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2017
355ml bottle. Cloudy, ruby colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, pink-ish head. Sweet-ish raspberry aroma, notes of raspberry juice, raspberry pulp, without tart or earthy flavours. Taste is sweet fruity, notes of raspberry, raspberry pulp again, no tartness. Yummy, but slightly too sweet and restricted. Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 19, 2017
Bottle @home. Pours ruby red, bubbles pink but thin did not form a real head but lots of bubbles. Nose is raspberries and caramel. Taste is the same, its tart at first but then gives way to a sweet finish.

Very good beer except for some slight hints of off qualities. Princeton’s in Aroma very rich true raspberry character except for a suggestion of cleaning agents. Same thing for flavor almost perfect but some slight hints of chemicals or something. lokis333 (617) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - AUG 12, 2017
Deep red color with small pale pink foam. Aromas sweet of raspberries and throat sweets. Palate, thin with a light body and sweet finish. Taste, sweet of raspberry jam and jam tarts also candy. Overall, nice sweet tasting fruit beer but not too sugary more jammy and natural tasting but still really sweet. Rune (13720) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2017
355ml bottle shared with Steinar at Angel Inn. Fading pink coloured head, dark red coloured body, near-clear. Spotty lacing down the glass. Raspberry skins on the nose. Taste of sweet raspberries, tutti frutti like, hints of almond. Sticky sweet ending. Drinkable, but not my kind of beer. (Leeds 04.07.2017). Ritzn (1984) - GERMANY - JUN 11, 2017
Red with medium white head. Aroma is raspberry oak yoghurt marmelade. Taste is fruity sweet and slight honey notes with lots of sour raspberries and tasty marmelade. Nice fruity finish. Drinkable fresh and deep. Excellent. MrOrla (3692) - Odense C, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2017
