2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Hazy dirty cherry color with a couple of rim bubbles, no lace. Taste is primarily tart raspberry that becomes a little more sour as it nears the finish. Not a lot going on, not a beer, not a lambic, but better than Hawaiian Punch.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark brown hazy red. Almost fermented raspberry jam, real mushy raspberry fruity. Lightish, sweet, with a balanced acidity. Doesn’t get icky even with the significant amount of sugar. Quite nice, easy light drinkable stuff.

Bottle 12,7 oz.
Pours purple/reddish with low white head. Aroma is of sugar, raspberries, wet grain, wort. Taste is of sugar, raspberries, berries, tart. Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Very sweet (way too much). Still better than expected.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2014 Bottle shared by czar, thanks bro! Pours a hazy and dark red with a thin white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of straight raspberry jam, nothing else. Taste is sweet and loaded with raspberries. Maybe a bit less sweet than I expected? Good thing that it is! Body was medium as was carbonation. Overall it was OK for a sweetened framboise, I wouldn’t run to get another bottle though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours hazy and bright red, almost burgundy, with a small off-white cap showing minimal retetnion and lacing. very fragrant raspberries, sugary - plain fructose or whatever, jam, fruity for sure - even a tropical whisper, very light acidity - citric mostly but also few acetic notes, faint leafiness, old grassy-herbal hops, pinch of dirt, minerals. average carbonation, light to medium body - oily and sticky, sweet w/o being cloying, i.e. also less sugar than all sweetened fruit lambic i’ve had, lightly citric and fruity-grassy finish. more than decent.. for a sweetened fruit lambic..

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Donkerrood bier zonder schuim. Smaak is lichtzuur en fruitig, framboos. Heeft een vreemde bijsmaak die het geheel teniet doet. Had anders best een goed bier kunnen zijn.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Dranken Geers. Muddy red and brown liquid. It has an odd funky and fruity smell, like overly ripe fruit mixed with some cellar notes. Taste is sweet and fruity but it isn’t a fresh fruity taste. The finish is slightly tart. Nah, I prefer a fresh fruity taste.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Typical sweet lambic-based framboise with a dark brownish red colour. Very sweet, one-sidedly sugary nose and dito taste, grenadine-like, no complexity whatsoever, cloyingly sweet finish and true lambic hardly noticeable. Boring even for this style and as far as I am concerned, one of the least interesting Chapeau fruit beers.
