My bottle [750ml] shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, GregClow, jerc & mabel. Jan. 6. Pours a deep ruby-brown with a spare diminishing fizzy light-pink head. Aroma of raspberries and that’s pretty much it, it’s lovely though. Big raspberry flavour, tart but not funky and not overly sweet. Average to medium bodied. I loved it.

[4233-20120106] 1pt9.4floz bottle. Marshmallow raspberry juice aroma. Hazy, dark red pink body with a long-lasting creamy light pink head. Super raspberry Jolly Rancher but with an even tarter flavour. Medium body. So very, very, very raspberry. (8/4/8/4/16) 4.0

Overheard: "The thing f-ing exploded when we opened it." "Death by raspberries!"

2012-01-06. Dark red body with a nice small pink head. 3+ Very strong fruity raspberry aroma. 8+ Flavour is similarly fruity, strong raspberry character, fairly sweet overall with notes of tart acidity around the edges. 7+ Very smooth average bodied palate. Simple, its all about the raspberry, it lacks the depth and complexity of a more traditional lambic but it is enjoyable, and delivers the raspberries pictured on the label in force! Does what it does rather well, enjoyable. Bottle shared by blankboy

garthicus (2658) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 6, 2012
Thanks to Blankboy. The cork shot out & hit the ceiling as I took the cage off. Appearance: Raspberry/cherry red, small pink head. Aroma: Raspberry cordial, sharp and tart. Flavour: Wow - carbonated raspberry cordial. Tastes so refreshing. Little to no alcohol, so tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured a golden peach color with virtually no head. Straight up raspberry nose right off the bat. Very light and clean raspberry & fruit flavor. Overall, this was really nice to drink. It broke up the monotony of all the Trippels and Dubbels at the tasting.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2011
Very light pinkish amber coloured beer with lots of carbonation and a small white head. Special peppery and fruity (fruit stone) hinted aroma. Medium palate. Finish is light sweet fruity hinted with some earthy peppery touches. Not to sweet, not to many flavours. Medium.

Martinus (2744) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2011
Pinkish colour, disappearing small white head. Aroma quite sweet, raspberry. Flavour sweet, very sweet. Sweet raspberry juice. Little malts. Quite cloying. Finish and aftertaste sweet. I guess I like my framboises a tad more tart and balanced ;)
