3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pink grapefruit-coloured, medium head over deep red beer with a brownish sheen. Heavy, syrupy-sweet smelling, raspberry jam, raspberry juice. Nearly tart, sweetish-sourish flavour; raspberries, but rather like pressed, concentrated juice, jelly or jam. Not an artificial impression, however. Feels rather well-carbonated; fruit-filled, nearly refreshing when served cold. Surprisingly better than expected. Just the nose keeps disappointing, as well as this filament of syrup propping up all the time.

Sweet and sour raspberry beer. Papery bottle wrap gives a good impression but the beer is indifferent from other fruit beers.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Spontaneous purchase from Järve Selver in Tallinn (375 ml / € 4.09). Too bad about so much paper going to waste... Anyway, BB in 2016. It pours a murky brownish red with a nice ruby hue. Small bubbles rising still after a while. The head’s very light beige (not even a hint of pink) and not very big but retains and laces nicely. The nose is rather enjoyable with home-made raspberry jam with very little tartness, but somehow feels stale and flat and kind of artificial. Taste is quite tart and very sugary. Nice raspberry flavour. Mediumish body - slightly watery even - with modest carbonation. Finishes stale. An easy-drinker, I’m quite fond of this despite some of the negative aspects.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours almost clear nice burgundy purple with a nice pink-purple head, nicely lacing. over ripened raspberries, cherries, raspberry vinegar, sweet tarts*TM, grassy leafiness, brown sugar and plum juice concentrate sweetness, spices. average carbonation, light body; lightly tart - low acetic, sweet but not cloying spicy finish. not overly complex and sugar hinders tartness and drinkability but it is definitely more drinkable than many other sweetened fruit lambic. dessert companion - enjoyed with the missus!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Winking Lizard. The beer pours a dark reddish-brown color with a medium frothy off-white head that recedes quickly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of cherries, yeast and malt. Light-bodied with a mildly tart cherry character and notes of earthy yeast and sweet malt. The finish is fruity with a short mildly sour cherry aftertaste. Decent overall, but not worth the $10 for a 375mL.
