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. Iíd drink this morning, noon, and night if I could afford to. Absolutely delicious beverage. This is an exceptional framboise, albeit a little sugary sweet.

Fantastic raspberry nose from the bottle. Pours a gorgeous medium to dark red ruby color. Slightly cloudy. Strong raspberry flavor through out. Very sweet. Slight bubblegum flavor towards the end which is somewhat distracting.

Medium rose head, deep clear red colour. Raspberry aroma is quite intense, tangible feet away. Mighty sweet flavour. Not bad, but not beer.

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2012
[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
(c/o blankboy, w/ him, garthicus, GregClow, HogTownHarry, jerc)
Overheard: "The thing f-ing exploded when we opened it." "Death by raspberries!"

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 thatís pretty much it, itís lovely though. Big raspberry flavour, tart but not funky and not overly sweet. Average to medium bodied. I loved it.

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

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2012
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

wondrtim (19) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2008
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 canít describe It drinks to much like a wine cooler. But none the less, i still liked it.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2012
January 6, 2012 - with blankboy, garthicus, gregclow, jerc & mabel. Green corked & caged 750ml bottle c/o j&k. Exploding gusher, the cork nearly embedded itself in the ceiling - but not much was lost. Deep ruby, fairly clear, with a smallish frothy pink head. Aroma - fuck me, raspberry (fresh and ripe, seeds included) - but thatís it. Taste - yup, sweetened raspberry, a bit of white wine. Acidic lively mouthfeel, light and sryupy - I love raspberry, so I loved this - sue me!
