I have a strong penchant for raspberries, so any brewer advertising the fruit generally gets my attention. After a long day walking around Amsterdam, I decided to enjoy something easy at In de Wildeman. When I say ’easy’, I mean in no way to insult Girardin, but generally fruit lambics are less challenging in complexity and that was just what I was looking for. The pour yielded a clear red tea color with a light film of white cream dissolving to a milky ring around the flute. To the nose, fresh raspberries stand out - an aroma of real fruit not syrup. Cherries and strawberries are also apparent and together with the raspberries vividly remind of a fruity yoghurt. Light brown sugar provides some balance and additional sweetness. The flavor is straightforward but delicious with almost the sole taste of raspberry jam and strawberries. As it wraps around the tongue there is a slight syrupy texture that smoothens out on the back of the palate while the perfect carbonation tingles at the tip. Some sourness produces a smiling finish that could have been more pronounced. Refreshing and flavorful.

harrisoni (13711) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2006
Bottle from Utobeer, Attractive scarlet colour with pink lasting head. Intense raspberry jam aroma. Expect it to be sicly sweet, but the hit of sourness that comes in later, balances it. Good integrated fruit. Real fruit flavour, not artificial. You can really taste the pips on this. Some vanilla raspberry ripple ice cream-esque. Wonderful quality fruit lambic

fiulijn (14533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2005
Red color; huge pink head, rather explosive bottle. Aroma of mature raspberries, sweet. Sour and quite astringent, delicate fruitness. The final is too bitter and astringent. Not impressive.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 8, 2005
Poured from the bottle, a nice clear pinkish red with an impressive bubbly but thick head. Very strong fruity aroma, quite sweet as well. Raspberries not too strong and nicely combines with the sourness. Kind of syrupy, but offset by the carbonation. A bit different to other Lambic beers I have tasted.

pivo (2566) - GERMANY - NOV 13, 2005
Fruity nose, yeasty and sour. Red rudy color with a lathery head. Raspberry taste, of course, but not too juice-like. Light chalky dry end. Soft carb and crisp texture. Refreshing and a nice departure from the more common Kriek beers.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2005

argo0 (11530) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 2, 2005
(375ml bottle) Beige head atop a clear red-copper body. The dregs are quite syrupy, refusing to blend with the rest of the liquid. Aroma is sweet, raspberry, light syrup. Taste is medium sweet, definitely raspberry, tart, some sourness. Light body, light effervescence, acidity.

YogiBeera (2475) - New Jersey, USA - 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?
