This corked and caged bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foam with a frothy top off-white colored bubbles that left behind a hazy strong bubbly carbonation brown colored body. The aroma was of bubble gum and fruity. The crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The mellow flavor contained notes of raspberry. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

Cloudy pink red. Fresh aroma of raspberries. Sweet and tart. Has a well rounded malty undertone. Simple and refreshing.

bhensonb (10342) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 4, 2008
375 ml bottle; corked & caged. Aroma of raspberries. Garnet/mahogany color with a decent pink/white head. Flavor starts mildly sweet, with some offsetting bitter like raspberry seed. Quite a bit of floral overtones, and there is mild acidity. Also somewhat perfumey. Certainly superior to most Belgian raspberry fruit beers.

nice raspberry champaign flavor, with a very hazy brown/purple pour and small white head. quite a bit of sediment. slightly sour, with plenty of raspberry flavor. plenty drinkable, but very one dimensional

nuplastikk (4123) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2008
375ml bottle. Corked in 2005, still fresh and enjoyable in April 2008. Murky fruity red-black raspberry color. Delicious and delightful aroma. Over the top raspberry beer. This is the real deal. I’d drink this morning, noon, and night if I could afford to. Absolutely delicious beverage. This is an exceptional framboise, albeit a little sugary sweet.

From the bottle this poured a clear ruby body having a brownish tint to it. The modest pinkish-white head lingers none too long but the sides of the glass get well laced nonetheless. The aroma is a sweet and candy-like raspberry. The flavor tastes more like the fresh fruit, having a slightly tart twang to it. I much preferred the Kriek.

nice deep red color with tanish or pinkish head. I could smell the raspberry as soon as i opened the bottle. It has an odd bite to tyhe aroma that i can’t describe It drinks to much like a wine cooler. But none the less, i still liked it.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Pours a pink cranberry color w/ a modest, shortlived froth that reduces to a full canopy and fluffy lace. Aromas of mellow raspberry. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors are a bit dull and aged. Theres a moderate tart acidity. Defined raspberry w/ some grapes. The finish is a bit tart w/ lingering fruit.

These guys seem to miss the mark all the time. Too much like tart soda pop. Slightly syrupy. Not a fan.

im suprised that this is a fruit beer and not a lambic. looks like a lambic, does not look, taste, or smell like a fruit beer. pours a dark blood red with a small light pinkish head. smell is raspberry, a little malt, and some sweetness that i cant put my finger on. taste is sour raspberry, a touch of the malts, ends a little bitter and tart, leaves mouth on the dry side. my second try of a fruit beer, lindemans is better.
