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.

deyholla (10709) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 28, 2011
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.

mR_fr0g (10403) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle shared at Leightons place. Clear deep purple pink coloured pour with a lasting loose pink head. Aroma is sweet raspberry, fresh raspberry, syrup, woody pips. Flavour is chalky mineral water profile, raspberry, bit thin, one dimension. Little tart finish. Palate is airy carbonation, mineral, chalky. Ok not great. Super dry in the finish.

DocLock (10215) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2004
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 (10093) - 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

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Tap at Varga Bar. The pour is a clear jewel ruby with no head. Nose is tootsie rolls/stale plasticy toffee. Taste is tootsie rolls with plastic, big medicinal overtones, sharp metallic, and small bile/vomit acid character. Very poor. Nothing here reminded me of raspberry or even beer for that matter.

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

j12601 (9798) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Bottle at the Cuvee de Castleton release at Captain Lawrence. Pours a hazy red brown with some purple highlights. Not much of a head. Soft sweet raspberry aromas. Egads is this sweet. Cloying artificial raspberry flavors are overwhelming very one dimensional.

Sample at a molen beer tasting. Thin white head. Clear ruby pour. Fruity aroma. Ok for a fruit beer.
