Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2005
Draught (handpumped) at Akkurat. I had this several times during the Sour and Bitter Festival in Stockholm, May 2005. The colour varied from being clear deep dark red to looking really thick, unclear and milky. The aroma and the flavour are very fruity with notes of everything from fresh raspberries to exotic fruits like oranges, unripe mangos, kiwis and grapefruits. Extremely intense and flavourful with some serious sourness all around. It should be a death sin to blend and sweeten this nectar of the Gods.

(Draught - of course) Spectacular carmine-red beer, slightly hazy; very rozy head. Superb noes of fruit or raspberry coulis. Taste is fruit, fruit and more fruit - raspberry as never before. Quite sweet but pure fruit-sweetness. (Fruit)acidity comes after a few sips. it is quite well-bodied - surprising. One asks how much fruit is used here? The beer is made from old lambic only, plus a slight cherry addition for the colour. Unique - rush at it if ever you come across.

lilannie (384) - Adamstown, Maryland, USA - JUN 29, 2008
Aroma: fresh mowed grass, sweaty summer gardening body odor, pot, watermelons, some raspberries
Aroma: like a fruit smoothie--very thick, bright pink, lots of floaties, including hairs from raspberries
Flavor: seedy, stemmy grassy raspberry flavors mixed with fresh mowed grass and "outdoors" in the summer
Palate: smooth, very creamy, nice raspberry afteraste, like eating a beer

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 15, 2005
Handpumped @ Akkurat, Stockholm. 10 May 2005
Very fresh raspberry aroma and lavour. Almost like a raspberry sorbet. Very refreshing. Quite rich in acidity as well with a slight hint of newly cut grass in the aftertaste. Wow!

sebletitje (6594) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 28, 2012
Cask @ ZBF’12. Couleur rubis profond, sur un col moyen aux tons bordeaux. Arôme est de pure framboise, que dire d’autre, Boon marque des points là où trop ont pour l’option sucrée. Bouquet fruité, terreux, rappelant un cousin lointain dans la New Glarus Raspberry Tart. En bouche, divin, on est loin devant une simple bière, un régal au palais qui ne se boit pas, mais se déguste doucement, fruits frais, et encore là, la framboise qui domine le tout, suivi du profile du lambic portant un léger côté froment. Néanmoins, tout cela est éclipsé par ce fruité qui accroche les papilles, sur des notes aigres et de fruits rouges terreux qui rendent là toutes les caractéristiques de le framboise.

Tap in The Rake. Looks so beautiful, crystal clear pink goodness, one of the best drinks iv ever seen. Aroma is fresh raspberry jam, lots of the nutty seed character, fairly tart and fresh, the lambic funk is tame. Taste is amazing, fresh raspberry flesh, lots of the seed nuttyness but its fresh and very appealing, the lambic is lightly restrained but thats not a problem as its soo refreshing and infinitly drinkable, slight carbonation is spitzery enough to keep you guessing. Outstanding stuff!

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Zythos Bierfestival 2012, Leuven, Belgium. Pours deep reddish rose with firm pink creamy foam head. The aroma is rich vibrant raspberry fruit goodness with tons of raspberry aromatic nuances. I mean I can smell the raspberry meat, the skin, the juice and the seeds. Wow. The taste is similar with wonderful raspberry fruit that is fresh, crisp and real and it picks up only modest raspberry tartness. Rounded smooth rich and balanced. Awesome!

omhper (19233) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2005 Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. Clear red, slightly hazy. Fresh raspberry aroma. CItric and intense with balanced acidity and concentrated raspberry flavour. Complex, yet refreshing. Probably the best beer made with raspberries.
