Thanks Dr.Jay, surprisingly good. Think raspberry black tea, not raspberry jelly. Dark raspberry colour with pink head, bit of lace. Aroma, well raspberry. There is bitterness behind the taste, medium mouthfeel.

clear red, small white head. Sweet and slightly sour aroma of fresh red berries, or fresh berry jam. Aroma is sweet berryish, strange bitter sour flavor, alc. Berries makes it a bit more fresh

Bottle. Poured a cloudy dark amber red with a pinkish white head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of black raspberries with some tartness, quite one note. Flavor is similar one note with a black raspberries throughout and not much else coming through.

750ml bottle-pours a bubbly purple head and deep red color. Aroma is raspberry. Taste is raspberry, seltzer carbonation , malt. A Smirnoff on steroids. Nice, but is it beer?

Thx. to Tinus // 75 cl. Bottle sampled @ RBBSG 2012 // raspberry ruby coloured with an off-white head // smells of raspberry jam, some mashed raspberries // this tastes more or less like raspberry jam, which is pretty good for me; yummy, quite sweet, small touches of malt, some syrup, sweet , lots of jam, pretty much what fruit beers should be // med. body

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2006 Nice raspberry aroma. Tastes like raspberry, with some citrus, yeast, and hops at the finish. Nice style, but beware that this one is not very tart like the New Glarus offerings. Rather, it has a more subtle taste, more like fresh raspberries.

jercraigs (11071) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2007
Bottle. Deep pink/purple body, with a fluffy pink head. (3+) Big but diffuse raspberry aroma, tiny note of raspberry seeds. Flavour is dominated by lightly tart raspberry and not much else. Muted malt flavour is overshadowed by raspberry, which is pleasant enough but lacks the depth or complexity to take it from a amiable quaff to a more interesting sipper. 6+/3+/6/3/12-13

Fin (11051) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2011
Bottle at Jan & Charlottes tasting, Ulfborg, Denmark 09.04.11 cheers Jan & Charlotte Nice aroma here, reminding me a little of Boon Framboise, in fact the aroma is bloody gorgeous. Pours blood red with a very light pink head. The aroma suggests that this is going to be a belter and better than it actually ends up to be. Taste however is a little thin with no depth, lacking sourness, fruity bite and depth. sadly. A9 A4 T6 P3 Ov13 3.5

750 ml bottle via trade with michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! Pours a lovely deep purple color with a finger-thick black raspberry-tinted off-white. Big black raspberry aroma, really fresh and fruity, without much else going on. The flavor, though, falls a little flat. Tasted like black raspberry flavored tonic water. Light-bodied, with very high carbonation and a spritzer-like mouthfeel. Fizzy. 8% ABV was nowhere to be found. Very interesting fruit beer; everyone who tried this one liked it but thought the flavor could have had more going on.
