3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gorgeous beer...deep, cloudy, and thick blood red with pink head. Aromas are sweet raspberry juice..sweet raspberry flavours at first followed by a puckering sourness...not bad.

375ml bottle. Just another sickly sweet fruit lambic, sweet raspberry syrup, all you need to know.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
25cl bottle. Again not much of a head on a dark pink pour. Earthy, even somewhat mouldy nose of older raspberry jam made with a good amount of artificial sweetener and real sugar, dullish. Sweet&sour candy approach towards taste: the tartness is close enough to real raspberry, the sweetness that of cheaper grenadine. Worse than their middling ’90s Kriek, i.e. needs to be drunk even colder. I suggest sorbet/granité consistency.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. De Troch Framboise. Pours deep maroon into a tumbler. Pink head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet raspberry aromas. Sweet raspberry pie upfront turning tart before heading to marshmallow in the lasting finish. Yes - it’s very sweet,but it tastes just like a piece of pie... and I like pie.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle: Too much for me. Not sure if I’m ready for something with such a bracing sweetness. Wish it had some more funk to balance that out. Will try again to see if I "grow into it"
