3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottled. deep red in colour and topped off with a frothy white head. There is a nice full raspberriness to the drink that avoids to trappings of fruit beers that come in floris or chapeau. Has more in common with Amsterdam really, but with a more distinctive beer body and less of a cola mouthfeel. Gets sweeter the further you go, but it’s not overwhelmingly so. Pretty Good!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep red color and large white head. Strong aroma of fresh raspberries. I couldn’t help but pick up some mustard aroma and flavors, not sure what was going on there. Bit of lambic like sourness, malty backing. I liked it but will likely be reevaluating this.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. pours a ruby/brown with pinkish/white head. Artificial raspberry in the aroma. Bit funky. Light, watery, fizzy, highly carbonated, mildly fruity. The raspberry is quite mild, more of a white wine/champagne taste. I went back and forth on this, but overall a letdown. Quite dry.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark reddish brown in color. Very nice head, about an inch and a half, on the pour. Smell is raspberries, some vinous qualities, and some acidic notes as well.
It has a good mouthfeel. But there is a slight metallic flavor in the taste. Some very weak raspberry and hints of cherries. If it was bigger and more tart it would be better. This comes across very watered down.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is sweet and fruity. Appearance is ruby amber with little to no head. Palate is rather flat. Taste is overwhelmingly sweet and rasberry followed by a sharp tartness.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a deep red with a fluffy off-white head. This was way more like a beer than Lindemans or Boon, and it wasn't nearly as enjoyable. The flavoring came off as totally artificial.
