A fruit Bičre de Garde opening this bottle was like smelling fresh raspberries and this beer was cloying as some fruit beers tend to be. Page 271 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 343 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

This is not a lambic. Even with it being raspberry, I did not care for it. Too much like drinking a cereal.

Pours dark red and slightly murky, big pink head and light lacing, big raspberry nose, dry, slightly sour, longish finish, very nice.

Red-Amber. Medium pink head. Aroma: Raspberries, some acidity. Flavor: Raspberry dominates, coying. Chemical finish.

huge, sweet fruity flavor, almost candy-like. a touch of oxidation (old bottle). gorgeous red hued, cherry cola color, with a modest head. fruit and yeast esters prevail. soft malt flavor mixing with sweet/tart fruit flavor -- cherry/raspberry. the flavors compliment, though in the end the fruit leaves it’s lasting trace of flavor. utterly under rated brewery, fantastic beer. reading some of the super low ratings, i’m thinking, if those folks bit into a handful of organic raspberries at the farmers market, they’d remark, "too much raspberry flavor!" if you get anything but a clear pour, it’s because you didn’t decant correctly.

A nice biere de garde with raspberry juice added. Very refreshing, but a bit too sweet for me.

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.

Nice pink color with a big raspberry smell. Wicked tart-o-rama, but still big in the raspberry department.
