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.

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.

A fruit Bière 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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
