"The aim of this beer was to make the perfect summer drink; sweet, fruity and refreshing.The aim of this beer was to make the perfect summer drink; sweet, fruity and refreshing." (Fyne Ales website). They have certainly achieved that with this lovely, fruity concoction. Celebrate Scottish raspberries and Scottish beer all in one drink.
Fyne Ales are located on the shores of Loch Fyne in Argyll and have an excellent range of beers. This is influenced by German wheat beers, with a load of Scottish raspberries thrown in. It smells wonderfully of raspberries. I expected it to be very sweet, but not so. There is more of a sour taste than a sweet taste.
It has the feeling of a soft drink, with a good amount of carbonation and at only 3.8 % it is not strong on the alcohol. This is certainly a drink for a sunny day on the shores of an Argyll loch.
The bottle label stands out from the crowd with its vivid red colour and a joke about the JFK Berlin speech.
I loved this beer and that it uses a Scottish fruit for its flavours. It is yet another innovative craft beer from a Scottish producer.
