YogiBeera (2435) - Hamburg, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2005
Hazy red/copper color with a small layer of a head. Of course raspberries in the nose and also in the taste. Also woody. The balance between sweetness and sourness is quite good and has a long lasting very refreshing aftertaste.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2005
No#49. Aroma is fresh rasberries. Taste is refreshing lightly sweet fresh rasberries. Very nice beer, but maybe could do with not being so fresh tasting. lacked body maybe?

Dark orange red, pink lacing creamy head. Big sweet raspberry aroma. Fruit, ashen yeasty notes, quick dry fruity finish. Somewhat thin. Refreshing, but a bit boring really.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2005
Huge, clean raspberry aroma with a steady undercurrent of barnyard tones. Clear, reddish brown body with rocky, pink-tinged head that coats the glass and lasts throughout. Raspberry flavour shines through the light, tart, farmy, lambic character making this seem more like a fruit beer than a lambic, never-the-less it is very enjoyable. Light, refreshing body with soft, fine-bubbled carbonation. Sampled at GBBF 2005.

lululegrand (94) - gent, BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2005
Strange reddish-orange color, small slight pinkish head. Fine raspberrie aroma, also hints of acceto balsamico, wood, banyard and robarber-jam. Taste is well in balace with fine soury accents and with a good round body. Great afthertaste with a refreshing raspberrie finish.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2005
(Bottle 37,5 cl) Pale, hazy red with a small pink head. Very raspberry nose and flavours. Framboises can often be a cloying, not so pleasant experience, but as this is based on unsweetened lambic it’s very fresh and not too tart. Rather delicate indeed. 060498

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2005
Light hazy soft red color (brick-red) with small pinkish head. Very refreshing raspberry aroma with touches of unripe prunes, bergamotte and mirabells. also a faint earthy and barnyard accent in the nose. Taste is to my taste well balaced, the sourness is crisp and dry. The body has a good roundness with accents of fresh crumble cakes with soft custard cream and topped with fresh raspberries and jam of bergamottes. In the afthertaste the faint woody and forrest soil accents are cominig up. The finish is dry with an elegant roundness.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2005
UPDATED: APR 3, 2008 A Mes rate: Bottle from the Belgian Belly.
I must be honest right away and say I was expecting more from this one. That said it is very good stuff all the same. Where is the sour funk and barnyard from the wonderful kriek? So far, and I am sure this will change, the best framboise I have had is the Boon. This was not quite as good. I am quite sad. Ok doom and gloom over. All said and done, it’s a fruit beer, tastes great, lovely framboise nose to finish. Very nice but not genius

shrubber85 (7295) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 13, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2006 Bottle. Fresh raspberry and yeast aroma. Deepred color with medium head. Sweet raspberry flavor initially with a sour finish. Nice fruit lambic that isn’t overly sweet and still has lambic characteristics.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2005 Couleur rougeâtre vers la prune avec des reflets oranger. Belle mousse blanche légèrement taché de brun. Nez marqué de framboise mi-réel mi artificiel suivi d’une faible présence d’acidité. Deuxième nez de bois moisi et presque de poissons. L’acidité en bouche n’est pas très marquée et les flaveurs sont plus proche d’un vieux fromage bleu et des graines de moutarde que du citron. La texture est vers le crémeux. Intéressant pour son originalité quoique les flaveurs soient un peu trop dans le département du moisi à mon goût et que l’acidité ne soit pas assez franche.
