dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2005
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!

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 9, 2004
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.

stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2012
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.

AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2008
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.

doublebock (548) - California, USA - AUG 1, 2007
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.

UNCCTF (517) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - MAR 12, 2004
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.

JediMindTricks (446) - Remington, Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2009
Pour is crimson and pink with a nice pinkish head...nose is straw and sour raspberry...taste is sweet and barnyardish with raspberry all over the place...finish is a little too sticky...it is what it is...

Bottle in Fl. Very sweet aroma. Raspberry flavor is not too sweet. Good carbonation. Enjoyed more than expected after initial whiff.
