Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 2, 2006
Pours orange/gold with a pinkish white head. Smells of pepper and raspberries. Taste is a lot of the same. On par with their other Ephemere offerings.

Ungstrup (38154) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2006
An unclear orange beer with a nice orange-pink head. The aroma is very artificial of raspberries, while the flavor is thin with notes of raspberries, leading to a dry end.

zathrus13 (1776) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2006
Pink/brown, with a white head. Aromas are subtle, with raspberry and yeast. Flavors are respberry, yeast, and spice. Body is on the light side.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 5, 2006
Bottle. Hazy orange colour with a medium pinkish head. Yeasty, sweet raspberry, spicy aroma and taste. Medium body with a sweet finish.

Novemberish 2005 bottle from Rastacouere, consumed on 3/28/06
Immense white head is very bubbly, eventually receding to a light covering, with minimal lacing. Vigorous, small bubbles roam about the liquid, which is a light pinkish-lemonade color, with just a touch of haze towards the bottom of the bottle.
The nose is very dry, with a lightly spicy yeast, some faint plant-like notes, entwined with dry raspberries, tastefully and seemingly authentically done. A soft vanilla keeps it from being bone dry, but its near that. Raspberry pulp-like juiciness fills in most of the aroma, while a touch of wheat dryness is noted.
Upon first sip, the liquid crackles with lively carbonation, very spritzy, expansive and pulling apart the already dried out flavors imparted by the lightly crusty white grains, soft, but dry wheat and raspberry seed dryness. The raspberry flavor is true, however, and as the beer warms and the carbonation becomes nearly manageable, a succulent honey-vanilla covered raspberry flavor emerges, sticking to the palate and lingering long after the finish. Fairly clean yeastiness, light sourdough effect, matches the extremely dry, fully attenuated raspberry flavor to produce a light bodied, quenching drink. No alcohol noted. Touch watery, as others have noted, with plenty of carbonation, but the beer wouldnt work with much lower levels of carbonation (though it could stand to be less expansive). Thanks David!

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2006
34,1 cl bottle. Orange colour with a nice head. Nice aroma of raspberry. Also nice flavour of raspberry, ends up nice and very well made.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 20, 2006
This looks like a pretty underrated beer. It’s not overly sweet at all, it’s very reasonably priced. It’s similar in a lot of ways to the Three Philosophers. OK, so it’s not that complex, and a little weak in terms of mouthfeel. It’s enjoyable though.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2006
Cloudy orange beer with a small off white head. Malty aroma with a berry fruityness and a light yeast note. Malty sour and sweet flavor with a sweet and light dry finish.

Cloudy red-orange color, compact head. Nice aroma of raspberry and strawberry puree. Mild flavor, a bit fruity, some wheat, moderate sweetness, and very low bitterness.
For a fruit beer, it’s well made.

Cloudy pink grapefruit color. Aroma of raspberries and white sugar. Watery taste, with a very light fruit touch and extremely short final. Bad for my taste.

Papsoe (25060) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2006
(Bottle 34,1 cl) Hazy reddish orange with a small, slightly pink head. Very fruity, berry nose. Light-bodied with vaguely sour notes and very distinct accents of raspberries - appear authentic, not artificially flavoured. Not really sweet, but very fresh. A perfect summer aperitif. Thanks to Siroy for this. 150306
