Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2007
2005 bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, pink, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium to dark reddish-purple. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), with strong notes of cherry/raspberry syrup, raspberry seeds. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Sweeter than the peche and tropicale, but a little more tart too...more intensely flavored in general, and thus more fatiguing. Syrupy texture doesn’t help. Not as beery in the nose, closer to soda pop. Hard to enjoy.

Bottled. Hazy pink coloured with a rather large fizzy head. Very sweet and sticky with notes of rasberries, grapes and sugar. A bit too fizzy.

argo0 (11329) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 10, 2006
(375ml bottle, best by 9/07) Small pink head atop clear, deep pink-red body. Aroma is moderately sweet, strong raspberry, light raspberry astringency. Taste is moderately sweet, raspberry, raspberry soda, light tartness. Light stickiness, light-medium body. Truly, this could pass for a soda, which, depending on your proclivities, could be a good thing. Much better than their peach.

jimhilt (2388) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Pours a five finger pillowy pink head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Cloudy amber/red color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Strong raspberry nose. Starts sweet but not cloying, strong raspberry flavor which masks any malts or hops, clean finish. Non-beer drinkers would like this. $4.50 for a 375ml bottle from Liquid Solutions Tigard, Or.

IndianaRed (2316) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 16, 2006
BottlePours a slightly hazy deep crimson with a small but lasting light pink head. Awsome thick clingly lacing. Aroma id strong, up front raspberry. Sweet but a bit soapy or perfumy. Extract. Flavor is also sweet and very srong fruity. Cherry, raspberry and that perfumy soap that is on your gramas sink you have to use when you visit on summer vacation. Too bad too cuz I love these psudo-lambic/fruit beer/pancake syrup things. Soft very fine carbonation. Creamy somoth feel. Probly from the soap....

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUN 29, 2006
Similar to the Kriek in appearance, slightly deeper in color with the same pink head. This is reminiscent of alka seltzer mixed with one of those Emergen - C packets. Some nice mineral notes in the flavor, dry with with some musty fruit flavors, well balanced and and tart.
