Bottle, caged and corked. Full disclosure, I may be positively tilted towards good raspberry beers ... But from the first whiff of this I’m sold. Solid, fresh berry fields, with a hint of yeast. This is full bodied, perhaps in the minds of some too full-bodied to carry the berry character ... but still a pleasant, rollicking beer IMHO ... an interesting Germanic, wheaty twist is underneath ... good stuff.

A decent fruited wheat beer. I’m a sucker for anything raspberry; beers especially. This one wasn’t the best flavored beer out there, but was pretty good. Aroma was nice. Raspberry, with hints of cough syrup and jelly. Pour was a beautiful dark hazy red with a one finger near pink head. Taste was a let down considering the good aroma. Thin and watery with the great carbonation drowning out any flavor on initial sip. When the flavor comes out it is all raspberry, but very muted. Not much else going on. Jack up the raspberry flavor a little and this beer would be fantastic Stuu666 (15248) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours dark red, lovely raspberry nose, tart, fruity, but a bit flat and thin, nose brings this up. OPIE788 (336) - Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle. Red. Smells like raspberries. Unsweetened raspberry with a lot of carbonation. Not very well balanced. merc7186 (3160) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 19, 2013

Bottle @ Richard’s tasting. Dark purple pour with a pink head. Sugar, raspberry soda, and popsicles. A touch of grass. Simple flavor. Just pretty much sweet raspberry soda/popsicle. A touch of grass, soda water, and a light tartness. bhensonb (15963) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 23, 2013
750 c&c from BottleSelect.com. Pours darkly ruddy with an off-pink head. Aroma is very raspberry - more black than not. Med minus body. Flavor is rather tart raspberry. Again more towards black than red. It’s really dryish, and has a raspberry tartness on into the finish. Goes a bit thinnish, but the flavor isn’t affected.

Tastes like black raspberries. A lot of the original sugars are gone, which gives this a deep fruit taste which doesn’t cling with too much sweetness. hcalsos (205) - Rælingen, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2013
0.75 l bottle. Pink brown colour with a thin redish head. Raspberry, vanilla aroma with a strong fruity raspberry flavour. Medium body.

This one poured a ruby red color with a small pinkish head. Aroam was of artificial raspberries and basically nothing else. Flavor was very similar, overly sweet and way too carbonated. Just bad.
