3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
