2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tart raspberries on the nose. Pours cloudy red with a thin white head. Tart and sweet, fruity, it starts out right but has an artificial aftertaste.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle. poured hazy pink, with a moderate sized pink head. mildly tart raspberry syrup aroma. Taste is comparable to raspberry soda, with unnatural raspberry syrup flavor. Syrupy mouthfeel. I’m not a fan.

OK lambic. I don’t really think anyone reads all of the comments on these beers, they probably just check the percentile ratings like I do. The numbers don’t lie.

Sweet berry aromas. Very sweet and tasty but lacking any beer character. Wine coolerish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet raspberry jam flavor and aroma, a bit more tart in the finish then the Lindamans. Not earthy and funky enough yeast character that makes some of the fruit lambics really good, this is more like an after dinner treat.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Has certain potential, Raspberry and cranberry fill the aroma. the pour is red raspberry an slight off-white head. taste is semi tart, the Raspberry are not overwhelming, yet it is refreshing.

The aroma has lots of raspberry with yeast and sugar. The appearance is ruby red with an average foamy head. The flavor is like the aroma and a tiny bit sour. The palate is smooth. A very decent beer.

Bottled. Beer is clear, medium/dark crimson. The head is initially large, pale rose, frothy. Diminishes, but mostly lasting. Subtle rings of lacing on the glass.<P>Redolent with berry kool-aid memories. Malty with a trace of toasted bread; Heavy notes of fake, sticky raspberry jam.<P>The flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, trace bitter with a long, lightly bitter, moderate/heavily sweet finish. Packed with simple syrup.<P>The body is medium, the texture is syrupy and the carbonation is lively.<P>AlcoPop.
