itís almost a fruity rose, when drunk cold.
Wonderful realfruit flavour, which they use!
Use itís in dressings, sabayonís and so on.
Itís made with geuze but itís well balanced in the sweet and sour tasting, and it has a very long aftertaste

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2008 Corked bottle. Big fresh rasperry jelly aroma. Beautiful cloudy darker purple ruby color. Taste is raspberry explosion. Average carbonation. Nice for the sweet at heart. Barnyard manure flavors in an old aged barn barrel of crushed raspberries. Perfect sweet finsh, just plain lovely.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375mL bottle, capped and corked. Enjoyed from my CHAPEAU flute glass. Pour is like a White Merlot, dark red burgundy color. Aroma of tart raspberry juice, fresh raspberry jam, dried raspberry fruit leather. Lots of raspberry. Flavor of tart fruit, acid juice, some wheat malt. Finishes with a bold Lambic attic character, tastes like cork and cobwebs. Fruit and old wood, fantastic! Mild Carbonation. This is the best of all Chapeau bottles Iíve sampled. Simply Wonderful.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Ruby red with a small red/pink head. Nice color, wished for more head.
THICK raspberry smell. Now, you either like the smell of raspberries or you don't- I love the smell- especially here, where it doesn't smell like some sort of cheap extract, but instead FRESH fruit.
Wonderful- though it's very unbeerlike in taste.
Drinkable as hell- but one at a time- too much might be too sweet & give a stomache ache.

Pretty colour, tasted like a raspberry Lifesaver, which I loved! So clearly I enjoyed this beer. I think the oak casks did effect the taste, some extra nuance here. I liked it.

Lovely raspberry bouquet. very big aroma. Purple/red with a pinky thick pink head. Delicious sweet raspberry with a touch of oak and nice creaminess. I think it tastes fantastic though I can see why some would find it much too sweet. I think the acidity in the finish balances that well enough.

Thanks to akevitt for sharing! Beer had a raspberry ice tea colore with light foam and carbonation. Very nice raspberry aroma and flavor. No too sweet. Had a nice amount of tartness. Very refreshing!
