Bottle from Super Saver. Ruby pour with little head. Big oaky natural raspberry aroma, with some malt. Flavor is of raspberries, some oaky malts. Gets tarter as it warms. I’d buy this again.

"well, i kinda like this one better than most here. smells of fresh picked raspberries. the look and feel are about what’s expected of the style, but it’s not over bubbly like Lindeman’s and some others can be. the flavor is quite nice as well. Lots of raspberries, but not so sweet you can’t tell it’s a beer. Dry bittersweet smooth finish, like chocolate dipped berries. nice after dinner sipper."

Ferris (5005) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle - vintage 2006 - Raspberry and some balsamic. Hazy copper with almost no head. Sweet raspberry, earthy notes and rotten fruit. Great for the age.

@ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Cloudy dark ruby color, nice head cover with a thick rim, no lace. Taste begins with mild malt that blooms some in the palate. On the swallow, sweet raspberry takes over, but it gradually turns more sour as it fades. A very nice balance, a little more sour and tart than the Belgian lambics. Recommended.

On tap at La Fine Mousse, Paris. Pours red with pink head. Fruity raspberry aroma. Sweet raspberry flavor, sour at the end. A bit artificial.

Man this is not good. Aroma is of raspberry candy syrup, almost no discernable beer character. Appearance is a reddish brown with a pink head that fades to nothing in a flash. Taste is worse than the aroma. Raspberry is initially ok then immediately turns to syrup and cloying sweetness. Palate seems dry until the sweetness takes over and it turns to cloying crap. I wouldn’t drink this again if you paid me.

Bottle. Murky pinkish purple color, off pink head. Nice raspberry aroma with subtle citrus and straw. Taste is very sweet and simple fruit.

Erasmus_ro (1484) - Alabama, USA - OCT 24, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 Rating #1000. Bottle. Pours a bright red with a good-sized, rosy pink head. Aroma is fresh raspberry, strawberry, wild strawberry, raspberry candy. Taste is a bit stuffy, semi-sweet. Raspberry, but also quite musty. Not that pleasant. Not much tartness or sourness. Palate is alright.

JBPortland (930) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Pours ruby red with large head. Nose is all berries, sweet. Taste is big sweet berries, sugary, syrup, candy, soda-like. Hardly tastes like drinking a beer. For the style, not bad, but not very enjoyable. Too sweet.

Bottle. Poured a reddish/pinkish tinged color with a small sized head. Raspberries. Semi-sweet with a lighter tart finish. Somewhat artificial, but still somewhat enjoyable.
