skortila (4424) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2004
dutch ratebeer lambic-meeting: Fruity, raspberry (..) smell with some oak. Hazy, red coloured with a short pink head. Particles in it. Taste is raspberry, a little tartness, quite smooth and balanced, but quite sweet.

jerohen (1977) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2004
Dutch ratebeer lambic-meeting: Red-brown coloured, yeast particles floating around. Fruity aroma (guess what), some oak. Flavour is on the sweet side.

Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2004
Lactic raspberry aroma, light hops. Very fruity. Deep blood red, cloudy, with light pink lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Tart, lactic up front. Very fruit, but not overly sweet like Lindemans. Finish is medium acid, lightt bitter, and fruity. After is medium bitter, medium acidity, chalky. Very nice framboise.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2004
I'm not often a fan of Belgian fruit beers (Kriek excepted), or any fruit beers for that matter, as too many are made in a commercial style and end up sickly sweet. Well, this certainly does have some sweetness, but this is tempered by the tart acidic notes that come from using a decent lambic as the base. Still not my favourite style, but one of the better examples that I have experienced. Bottled, London Drinker beer festival.

37.5 cL [corked and caged]: an oozing stream of liquid garnet meanders through the raspberry bed . . . mint, lime zest, oak, bark, honey, and earth hang in the air. As I approach the patch the sunbeams cut the thick air and warm my skin. I feast on the raspberries and notice luscious complexities of iron, pomegranates, orange flesh, blood, hay, limestone, and dry earth. Full carbonation make for an amazing treat.

DanielBrown (3700) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2003 This is really very tart, and a little bit frightening. The raspberry flavour hides behind a wall of acidity, which makes a rather challenging drink. The colour and fragrance are spot on, along with the drinks eagerness to escape its' glass confines once the cork is popped! I prefer Girardin's kriek.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2003
Bottled, Filtered?. Brown pink with pink fluffy head. Slightly better than normal fruit beer, forced Raspberry almost pear drop, and certainly sweet. More like drinking Dentist mouthwash.

diabel (1603) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - OCT 28, 2003
Pink-read colour, white head. You can smell the rasp-berries even when you're not drinking or really smelling the aroma. The aroma is mostly rasp-berry aroma, but slightly gueuze-aroma. The flavour is not sweet, it is more like the framboise of Cantillon: little bit sweet, but still dry and really rasp-berry-like.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2003
The aroma is sweet with slight sour notes. The color is a beutiful clear red and it has a light brown head, though fast disappearing. The flavor is rather sweet with a nice taste of the wooden cask. It is rather carbonized for a Framboise. It ends on a dry acidic notes combined with nice mellow notes of the wild fermentation: metal and sourness. A nice Framboise - though a little on the sweet side.
