3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A deep red cloudy body with a light pink head. The aroma is an amazingly rich cherry with honey and flowers. There is a hint of some light balsamic vinegar. Very rich and fruity aroma. The taste is more dry than I expected. There is a hint of cobwebs and some light bread. The finish is slightly coppery. This is decent, but I would like either more sweet taste or sour character.

Pours a nice blush brown from a bottle. Big nose of raspberry/strawberry, a little jammy rather than fresh fruit. Flavor is pretty much the same. Light/thin mouthfeel. Good beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a hazy, darker amber color with a beige head of foam that dissipates quickly. The aroma is very jammy. Lots of raspberry character. Some funk comes through in the aroma, but in the taste, I get mostly a jammy sweetness. Medium body and some moderate carbonation.

Sampled from a 750 ml bottle from notes. Pours an amber/reddish/purple color with a small pinkish head. The aroma and flavor have sweet raspberries, mildly tart, a touch of bitterness, the aroma and flavor are decent, thinner and almost a touch watery in mouth feel. Good, not great.

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

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
@ 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.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
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 wouldnít drink this again if you paid me.
