a good raspberry outing from boon here. i think that maybe..even contrary to my personal belief that i woul like them...iím not a huge fan of fruit beers. but this one seemed to go down pretty easy with a nice aftertaste. one of my favorite to date. agian not something iíd go out and buy for the night but a good experience to have in the fruit beer region.

Sweet, fruity, raspberry aroma. Clear, red coloured with a short pink head. Fruity (raspberry) taste, quite sweet and more sour/bitter in the finish. Dry beer. not really interesting.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Best by Sept 17 2006 - Pours a dark ruby with a large light maroon head that quickly collapses. The aroma is tart raspberries, sugar, as well as hints of barnyard. The flavor is light raspberries up fron then some acid and sweetness kick in, bringin ti all to a close is an envelope of fruit tartness. Body is medium-light and it goes down easy. A very drinkable lambic and a likely candidate for a "starter" lambic. Not nearly as funky as others and as a result just a little more simple and not quite as good. Still it is a highly drinkable and enjoyable beer.

I love gueuze but normally just the gueuze lambic or kriek lambic. Other fruits donít do it for me. But! This one is an exeption. Nice aroma consisting of raspberry, oak and tart. Pink/redish colour, nice head. Not too sweet, raspberry flavor, smooth, some sourness. Finishes off quickly leaving some sourness behind.

Bottle. This is the beer that my wife and I toasted with at our wedding! Big raspberry and oak in the nose. First thing that hits your tongue is tart rasberries and lemon with a earthy background. Very drinkable. Great celebration beer.

(1997 bottle in 2004): The sweetness of raspberries permeates the beerís fragrance as prickly funk slowly seeps from beneath...Acidity tries to take control at first but stops short of enjoyment and is overtaken by brown sugar...If midnight is sweetness and noon acidity, this is a minute or so before sunrise...Thanks Josh!...

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy deep brownish-red color with a very small off-white head. The aroma was full of raspberries, freshly cut grass, tart lemonade powder, and some dirt. The flavor was very tart up front, but soon was dominated by lush raspberries, grass, and lemon. Wonderful crisp, light feel...very refreshing...semi-dry finish.

This was a 1997 bottle drank with Kimchee, Martint, tiggmtl and Oakes. It pours darker than I expected, a rather deep brown, dirty soil alike with barely no head, but lots of flaoties. Aroma is very leafy with raspberry "coulis" notes, like youíd put over a good ice cream. Hints of old books, dirt and earth. In mouth, acidity level is disappointingly low, itís earthy with raspberry grains flavors, but ultimately just too sweet to be enjoyable. mouthfeel is thin-medium with moderate carbonation. Cloying finish with more of the leafy aspect.
