Huge PINK head; leaves good lace. Without light, the liquor has ruby color. With light, it appears a clear, soda-pop red. Sweet fruity aroma, like a raspberry candy, not like the raw fruit. Light sourness in the background. Like a sweet framboise. There’s a touch of sourness, but it is the story of the berry here. Again, the flavor is closer to a raspberry candy. Would make a good dessert beer with cheese.

Idiosynkrasie (7967) - 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.

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.

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.

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 (1808) - 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.
