larsga (7656) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2009
Medium offwhite head. Pale coppery body. Malty strawy raspberry aroma, very harmonic, with milky notes. Sweetish watery earthy raspberry taste with strawy notes. Harmonic. Mid-bodied. Mild, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish metallic raspberry aftertaste with roasty notes. Harmonic, but too watery. The raspberry is not properly integrated, and I don’t like the aftertaste. (0.5l bottle, Centra, Oslo.)

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - NOV 19, 2009
50 cl bottle at home, bought at Vaaland, Bryne. Light amber clear color, with a hint of reddish, moderate and disappering white head. Aroma is berries and grainy malt. Flavor is berries and malt, nice sweetness, fine bitterness; I guess it comes both from the berries and hops.

Rune (13508) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2009
500ml bottle from Centra Colosseum Park, Oslo. Tiny, white head over a clear, golden-amber body. Ginger-like berries to the nose. Taste of tart berries and a rounded ginger touch added by earthy malts. Refreshing and drinkable, but has got some impression of a soft drink (room 813, Hotel Munch 17.11.2009).

MoritzF (10095) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2009
(bottle) Clear, golden colour with a blond and short foamy head. Fruit-accented and quite sour nose with notes of cassis and raspberry. Bitter and slightly sourish tart flavour, light bodied with a crispy mouthfeel. Mild (cara-)malty base on the one side with present acidic fruity accents which turn abruptly into a dry, bitter-tart and fairly hoppy finish. Works for me. 06.XI.09

gunnar (9696) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear orange with a small white head. Sweet fruity aroma reminds me of "Julebrus" soft drink as sweet as *¨^>. Taste is sour/sweet, ends rather quick.

Nisse666 (7978) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2009 Pink/brown in colour with a qickly disappearing head. Smell: fruitiness Taste: wild strawberry soda (a soft drink in Sweden), grapefruit, sweet but a bit sour! It’s nice with fruity beers, this one didn’t really carry out the tayberry flavor. I guess that more chilled and in the summer is the best combination. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-05-2009

Bullit (4686) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Bottle @ Peckhams Beerfestival. Copper colour, small white head. Aroma has mainly raspberries. Flavour of sweet raspberries and toffee malts.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2009
Bottle, Booths, Windermere. Deeply cloudy and dusky pink in appearance, with an off white head.Raspberries and blackberries fairly prominent, with a faint kriek style aroma. Reminiscent of tizer, but in a good way! Thinner in body than a Belgian fruit beer would be, but plenty of flavour and a really interesting style.

Marsiblursi (3083) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2008
(Bottle) Pours copper to brownish red. The aroma is of raspberries up front but there is also some room for blackberries and currant. Some malty sweetness in the background. The flavour is rather juicy with raspberries, blackberries and currant alongside mild toasted and toffee-like malt. The mouthfeel is clean, medium carbonated and light crisp. Light sweet and light bitter. Light tart aftertaste. Light to medium bodied.

Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2008
From Skjold-Burne, Aarhus, DK. Bottled, 230808. Pink with white head. Aroma of red berries. Flavor is OK sweet of berries with tones of malt and some bitterness.
