2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I had the "Framboise" (raspberry) version. I’ll presume the other variants are much the same. Poured a rather cloudy and headless orange thing. Aroma and taste were both fruity, raspberry-like, in fact. Mouth was a titch light, and although T really like raspberries, this one just wasn’t quite right. FInish was sour, too sour. I’m not impressed and would NOT have this again. Unless someone else was buying, of course. $6.99 = WAYYY too much for this one.

Light murky pink, ugly... Smells terrible, vomit and raspberries... Tastes like cough drops aged in rubber... Horrendous, skip

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
A deep rosy color, very low white head and high carbonation. Nose has a very strong raspberry nose, overpowers almost everything else with a very light malt presence. Flavor has a very pungent raspberry flavor, modest oak ending and a light tartness is found in the middle of the tasting. Body is light with very sharp, biting carbonation. Overall the flavor is pretty 1-D as the raspberry is pretty overpowering. Oak is very mild. Good but a bit pricey for the brew.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours rosy, slightly murky with a very thin white head. Raspberries--seeds and all on the nose, but with a bit of artificial sweetener. Taste is thin raspberry, light hoppiness--a bit watery and lightly dry with a soapy note. Decent carbonation with a thin body. This sounded a lot better than it tasted.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Poured clear orangey-amber with a short-lived whitish head. The aroma picked up tart raspberry skins, vanilla, and raspberry meat for the most part.. as it warmed up, the meat came across as artificially-sweetened.. didn’t draw me in. The flavor found what the nose indicated.. tart, lightly vinegary and metallic raspberry seeds over artificially-sweetened raspberry meat and other fruity malts.. muddled, metallic finish. Medium-bodied and moderately tart on the palate.. OK feel and flow.. lacked direction.

Pours to a ruby grapefruit body with a white head. The aroma is raspberry bushes. It has a lot of fruit, but also the leafy component. The flavor is raspberry bushes and simple pale malts. The palate is medium light and tart.

Pours hazy red with white head, aroma has notes of raspberry, sweet cream, some vinous, garden like earth. Taste is sweet raspberry, touch of vinous earth, slight bitter at the end. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle; Pour is a cloudy raspberry with an average white head. It retains fairly well, however. Aromas are fragrant and subdued raspberries. Flavors end up being subdued in a general sense. Raspberries, Belgian yeasts, and a light spice note wrap up this beer for what it is ; its drinkable, watered down and forgettable.
