750ml bottle shared by BeerGestapo, thanks Mike. Pours a deep, beautiful garnet with a large pink head. It smells exactly like black raspberry ice cream. The flavor doesn’t have quite as much raspberry character as the nose would lead you to believe. Lots of raspberry jam flavor with some crackery pilsner malt behind it. Very dry with medium-high carbonation. Finished dry but lacks any lingering qualities. Would be decent with a big sticky dessert.
A purple raspberry jam beverage with a thin off white head. In aroma, loads of raspberry jam, light acidity, light mineral notes, nice. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity malt with raspberry jam, light acidity, light mineral notes, light cloying sweetness, OK. On tap at Flashback Lounge. rentonj7 (250) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Beautiful pour. Lovely dark brick red with vibrant purplely head. Aroma is strong of black raspberry, not much else. Taste is half second black raspberry then just about nothing. High carbonation, short short short flavor. As a beer it’s pretty meh. Compared to most NYE champagnes - this takes the cake. wangsnap (10) - Kapellen, BELGIUM - NOV 2, 2015
Bottle Share with Kraddel....Thanks man; really enjoyed this one -_-
Let’s say this isn’t the best thing i’ve ever had.
Terrible mouthfeel, even worse after-taste. The aroma is beter than the taste but still nothing to be proud of. kraddel (8074) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 2, 2015

4 oz pour on draft at ChurchKey. Dark reddish with 1-2 fingers of light purple head. Aromas of raspberries mostly. Tastes of raspberries, malt. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Pretty simple, heavy on the fruit for those who prefer that type of fruit beer.

Bottle split at LKS Towers, thanks to Fergus, 05/05/15.
Rich raspberry red with moderate crimson spotting.
Nose is sweet raspberry syrup, red berry jam, sugars.
Taste comprises raspberry jelly, red berry syrup, sweet blackcurrant.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet close.
So so, ok for style I guess, too sweet to drink in large doses. The_Osprey (7980) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle share at Leighton’s, thanks to Fergus. Very dark red, lightly sparkling, small pinky head. Aroma is strong raspberry jam, blackberry. Body is medium, foamy, low carbonation. Taste is cherry, raspberry, a bit watery, no real bitterness. Sweet and thin. Not offensive, just not my sort of thing. mR_fr0g (12067) - 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.

Bottle shared in London - thanks to Fergus for this juice boost. Pours an attractive clear bloody red with a pink foam head. Lots of juicy and jammy raspberry in the nose - little else. Medium sweet flavor, lightly tangy, with faint bitter raspberry seeds. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. More bitter seeds in the finish, slight tangy raspberry. Great nose but the flavor doesn’t follow on strongly enough.
