Cakes (476) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2012
On tap at the Selinsgrove Beer & Wine Festival. This is very well done. It is not a "novelty" beer, but rather a well made fruit beer that is worth trying. Single finger surprisingly pink head on a reddish amber body. Aroma isn’t too sweet with musty raspberry and blackberries. Flavor is well balanced.

Beerdedone (3452) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2017
Bottle. Pours ruby red with a thin pink head. Aroma of sweet raspberries and blackberries. Flavor was fairly sweet and tart with raspberry jam, malt, a bit of caramel and was mildly acidic.

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.

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.

GenDV138 (7699) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 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.

Bacterial (3051) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 4, 2015
Purple pour with a slight white head. Nice raspberry nose. Taste is ok. Muddled berry. Wheat beer finish. Not tart.

Theydon_Bois (20621) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2015
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.

3.1
The_Osprey (9140) - 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.

3.2
mR_fr0g (13500) - 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.
