Color: pink. Head white with a pink tinge, fluffy on the surface of beer forms a layer 2 cm.
Aroma: Raspberries, referred to as sweet raspberries and raspberry gently yet.
Taste: Like the aroma of raspberries and nothing else but that does not mean that it is wrong. The beer tastes like raspberry drink perfect, neither too sweet nor too sour, perfect.
Saturation medium, very fit.

Pink brew, smells of flowers and raspberries. The taste is a bit too sweet for me, and is dominated by raspberries, but it's actually not as bad as I expected. If it's served at a low temperature, to subdue the sweetness, it's actually enjoyable. Then again, I do have a soft spot for raspberry-infused (or influenced) beers.

Nice ending to a hot summer day, light and refreshing. Aroma of fruit punch, pours hazy golden with a tinge of red, nice full creamy head. Taste is more fruit punch, with a lingering, sticky sweet finish.

This beer came in the most adorable little can. It poured a cloudy pink-tinged copper with a small head that didn't last long. The smell is raspberry, but not super artificial raspberry. That's about it, nothing that would indicate it's a beer. The taste is very sweet. It's like a raspberry soda. Only thing slightly beery about it is perhaps a tiny hint of hops on the back end. The mouthfeel is slightly thick with a moderate amount of carbonation. I'm kind of digging it, but it's not really what I expect out of a beer. If the idea of a raspberry-flavored malt beverage turns your crank, you might want look into it.

Presentation: 250 mL slim can, served in an oversized wine glass. No freshness date anywhere.

Appearance: Very thin, bubbly head that disappears almost instantly. It has a very nice, cloudy, light pink color.

Smell: The scent is dominated by raspberries, more artificial than anything. Nothing else.

Taste: Tastes mainly of raspberries. It's very sweet, and there's a little bit of malt.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and light. Feels sticky on the palate due to the sweetness. Good carbonation.

Overall: A very simple and fun beverage. Calling it a "beer" is reaching a bit. Nevertheless, it's very refreshing and nice to drink. Definitely worth keeping a couple of cans around for when you want to drink something different but don't necessarily want a "real" beer.

Bottle served into a La Chouffe tulip. Reviewed from notes taken July 2012. 4.3% ABV confirmed.

A: Pours a two finger head of slight cream and fair thickness. Retention is average. Body colour is a solid light red.

Sm: Artificial raspberry, an overload of sugar, and syrup. An unfortunately quite strong aroma.

T: Tastes like artificial crap raspberry, cultist suicide style koolaid (just drink it!), and overloaded garbage sugar and nasty syrup. Cough! Not really a true beer at all. I'm embarrassed to be seen drinking this. simply crap. Poorly built and balanced, with no redeemable characteristics. The finish is a sort of dying sugar-high stale note. Cough syrup comes through.

Mf: Very smooth and wet. Helps the disgusting flavours slide down.

Dr: 1.50 euro is high considering the pathetic state of the taste. Not a worthy beer at all. This is a damned embarrassment. Avoid at all costs.

F

**I just want to point out that this was terrible but I did not drainpour it. I finished it because I'm not a panzy. Remember: there are sober kids in India; nut up and finish your damn beer.
