gilvanblight (772) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2007
Definate berry scent mixed with weak hps. Plumb coloured pour. Weak and watery taste with a bitter aftertaste. Really nothing much there. All of the berry is in the nose not the mouth. Suprising lack of Alcohol taste.

341ml bottle, 6.5% a/v My brother tried this beer and said he really didnt like it, im curious to see what I will think. *Opens bottle and pours* Pours dark red, almost red wine colour. Lightly carbonated with a thin pink head. Nose is of raspberry, some dark malt. The taste is interesting, an obvious raspberry hit , some malt notes and a bitter floral dry finish. Make that a VERY dry finish. Very nice beer, one of the least sweet framboise Iíve tried, which I think is a good thing. Nice beer.

A very good fruit beer. The notes of raspberry show from the aromas to the palate. The flavor offers some light bitter notes that finish with a decent dep fruit flavor.

The best fruit beer Iíve tasted so far, although, donít suppose thats saying much. Pours a rasberry red, with a pink head that has moderate retention. Good rasberry jam aroma. Very tasty sweet and sour blend with a touch of wheat and malts, very well balanced. A tad thin in body, but nice fizzy carbonation. A tasty treat.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2007
341 ml bottle sample from the LCBO- Pours ruby red/pink with a foamy white fizzy cap.Very fruit forward aroma, raspberries and sugars, with some hopping present. Flavour is sweet and some tartness. Lots of fresh raspberry and some floral hops. Itís pretty much all raspberry with some vanilla on the finish. Pretty damn good.

341ml Bottle - Pours Kool-Aid red (hmm), with a decent frothy head - better than I was expecting, actually. Aroma is all sugar and raspberry, which is enticing. Mouthfeel is substantial...the taste is immediately raspberry, and a very clean taste at that. A bit of malts on the lower end of the palate, but the fruit dominates this one. Sharp tartness in the finish covers the high alc/vol perfectly. Powerful taste, but not overpowering. As most people say, itís not something I could have a lot of, but for a seasonal, this is a real treat. Another winner from Amsterdam! I would definitely recommend this to the adventurous beer drinker. Thanks to the Amsterdam fellow who passed the sample bottle on to me - you guys are great!

hopdog (8867) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2007
341ml bottle acquired in trade with radiomgb (thanks!). Poured a darker reddish color with a brown tinge to it and a smaller sized pinkish head. Aromas of sweet and tart raspberries. I like the way the aroma is. Tastes of sweet raspberries and other berries. Light tart finish. Syrupy body. Not that bad for a fruit beer.

bottle. this was the first fruit beer ive tried. poured dark purple/red/brown (which kinda scared me) with no head and little carbonation. aromas are almost entirely raspberry with a faint trace of malt. flavours are only of raspberries, no hint that this has any alcohol let alone 6.5%. non-existant finish. very refreshing and nice for a change but not something id drink everyday.

StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2007
341ml bottle - pours deep red/auburn with a very quickly dissipating pink head. Looks like juice after a while, with no head at lacing whatsoever. Smells like tart raspberries and some nutty malt in the background. Tastes...just like raspberries. Itís nice, but I donít think of beer when I drink this. Not cloying, not overly sweet, obviously not artificial - all pluses. Finishes with some sourness and a slight bitterness. Quite dry. After taste of malt, but faint. Certainly no raspberry lambic, but decent overall, even if not something Iíd regularly want to drink.
