3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very clear, bubbling pinkish/purple colored pour. Slim layer of white bubbles hang around the entire drink. Some lacing. Big raspberry aroma. Big raspberry taste with a bit of sour cherry to it. Not bad. I think I got an older Liefmans bottles as the cage disintegrated and the cork was the hardest thing I have ever held - from a corked bottle that is. Not bad.

375ml bottle. Clear copper colour with small, frothy, diminishing, minimally lacing, white head. Slightly artificial, sweet raspberry aroma. Taste is sweet, slightly artificial raspberry, in the middle part a tart note as useful counterweight flashes up; sticky palate. Way too sweet and artificial.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Backlog rating 2-09-2009 (Corked and caged bottle) The Appearance is a small semi-fizzy light pink head with poor retention, spotty amounts of lacing, cloudy body, and no visible carbonation. The Aroma is sweet, sour, spicy notes, and raspberries. The Taste is tart, some acidity, raspberries, and makes one pucker up a bit. The Palate is tingly and this is a light-medium bodied Fruit beer. This beer is too sweet for my palate as it not a beer I can drink a lot of at any one time.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
37.5cl bottle sample @ RBBWG 2013, courtesy of ?.
Cuivrée claire, col absent.
Arôme est léger fruité avec ce côté framboise et édulcorant.
Palais est trop sucrée et faiblard au possible, le tout est biscuité avec un côté framboise trop en retrait et surfait pour un fini sirop.
Quel intérêt lorsque l’on sait que Ecaussines brasse déjà sa bière à la framboise. Ici, le tout ressemble à une version allégée de cette dernière.
