Bottled - BeerBistro Toronto. Very very fruity (raspberries) flavour and aroma. The colour is just like red fizzy pop and I'm afraid the taste is just too much like that as well so that your thoughts after are more fruit than beer.

THis one came lunging out of the bottle like a rabid leopard at a gazelle fat clinic. Ruby red body with a big fizzy tan head. The aroma is pure fresh smahed raspberries. No other real aroma to speak of however. Flavor is also lots of raspberries with a slight sour tinge and a tiny bit of the old barnyard. Very dry finish with a medium light body. Overall a nice beer, lots of fruit and not much beer but still enjoyable.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - FEB 22, 2004
Nice ruby color, decent head. Nose is simply amazing, smells like I took a handful of fresh raspberries and crushed them in my hand to release the scent, really lovely. Doesn't smell vaguely like beer, but the raspberry scent is just lovely. Expectedly very raspberry in the flavor, sharp, tart, and sour, but mostly in a fruit-sour sense rather than a lambic-sour sense. Does have a vague bit of lambic funk to it. Not overpowering in its sourness, a nice balance of punchy fruit with tartness. Very good. Word of warning--when opened it exploded obnoxiously out of the bottle.

Malty brown brew. Medium/light body. Slight sourness to it. Hints of brown sugar mixed with the raspberries.

Rastacouere (6125) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2003
Dark almost clear ruby body with a tiny white head. Aroma is powerful candyish raspberry skins, too candyish and unidimensional to be particularly appealing. Still it's an original beer, definitely worth a try if you're into fruit beer. Restrained sourness with some kind of branches woodiness marrying watery raspberry syrup.

Sweet, fizzy raspberries ascend onto citrusy clouts...Raspberry Coke feel descends in a watery rout...Nothing at all transcends and that's why I'm going out...

Thanks to mr_kimchee for this one. This beer is beautifully packaged in a white ceramic 750ml resealable bottle. Upon opening, the wonderful aroma of raspberries hits you. In the glass, the color is dark red, with some brown notes in the background. It is not transparent but a bit hazy. The flavor is decidedly sour, which is no surprise for a lambic. However, the raspberry is missing, in my opinion from the flavor. I was expecting more raspberry taste.

Lubiere (9871) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2003
draft. Cotton candy nose, almost like a raspberry sucker...fresh sour raspberry in the mouth, with some sourness, divided opinions (between me and Dum)

Draught. Amber-red coloured beer with a small head. Clear raspberry aroma. A good mix of sweet and sour. Neutral finish.

jercraigs (7782) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2007 August 2007. Draft at Beerbistro. Ruby body with a small pink-white head (3+). Big tart leafy raspberry aroma. Sweet-tart raspberry flavour is rich but not cloying, though it could still become a bit much after a full pint of it. Alcohol helps cut the sweetness a bit. Average palate. An excellent fruit beer. 7/3+/7-8/3/15-16 - 3.6 <P>July 2003. Nice fruity beer. I like the tartness of this deep red drink. I had rated this higher in the past but I find I am less thrilled with it than i was. 8/4/6/2/15 - 3.5
