Metalchopz (2213) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2012 Originally rated August 2005. Thanks to Ms. Sénécal for this one, bought a year ago at the LCBO in Ottawa, Ontario. Comes in an awesome off-white ceramic 750ml bottle. Pours a crazy-crazy-crazy tanned head that stays long enough. Lacing is mighty fine. Colour is red-purple. The beautiful nose is of raspberry purée. The mouthfeel is slightly tarty with a sourness found in the finish. The raspberry fruit in the mouth is quite mild though. Quite refreshing and not too sweet. Overall, a good fruit beer, and surprised it comes from Amsterdam Brewing.

Spab (2301) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2010
On tap at Volo. Pours a clear ruby red with small light pink cap. Aroma is overwhlemingly fairly tart raspberries. Taste is huge tart raspberries. Lingering tartness in finish. One note but pleasant.

fullers (251) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2010
Bottle Brewery Shop. Poured pale red with pinkish medium head. As anticipated, fruity aroma, not unpleasant. Flavour tart and crisp. Refreshing.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2009
Draught @ Bar Volo, Toronto, ON: Pours red amber, no head at all. Boozy aroma with caramel and raspberries. The taste is exceedingly sweet, lots of raspberries, a few hops near the end. I’m not much a fruit beer fan to begin with but drinking a pint of this was like death to me. I can tell it’s decent for the style.

cfrancis (2278) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2009
Aroma of strawberries and alcohol. Taste is tarte, alcohol crispness with a fruity tartness. Finish is almost plasticy. Insane amount of head. Took awhile for me to pour it.

Elkas (213) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2009
341ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a light red with a pink head. Appealing fruity aroma. The tartness is a nice surprise, as I was expecting the cloying sweetness that usually accompanies fruit beers. Well done.

garthicus (2658) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 24, 2009
12oz bottle - Appearance: Dark red with a small white head. Aroma: Concentrated raspberry, sweetness, quite ’jammy’. Flavour: Wow - lots of raspberry, quite like a defrosted/unfrozen ice pop (Mr. Freeze) wheat, carbonation, dry and a long sweet finish. Not bad at all. My favourite Amsterdam product.

Beershine (5213) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Draught @ Only. Deep garnet, close to being opaque, little tan head, some lacing. Fresh raspberry and soda-like aromas but not too sweet. Thin, light mouthfeel. Finishes slightly tart and dry. Refreshin bevvie. Not complex but also thankfully, not too sweet.

12oz draught
6.5% ABV
I tried this beer on August 1, 2008 at "Smokeless Joe’s" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a deep semi-translucent red with a thick pink head. The aroma was raspberry with a malt hint. The mouthfeel was medium bodied, and highly carbonated. The flavour was sour raspberry, and a little grainy malt.

Too thin and tart for me. Certainly the essence of framboise is here, but it doesn’t save this bummer of a fruit beer (a style I normally enjoy). No cloudiness.
