2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
snifter filled from large bottle (original) -- revised in May 2015 with a 250 ml bottle [BB 2-2016].
Pours a nice clear light red with a medium but sudsy pink cap. Head has good retention.
Sweet fruity smell, with too much suggestion of medicine or artificially flavored candy. A bit too much sweetness. Tart-sweet flavor with strawberry and cherry leaves the aftertaste of a fruity dessert.
This did not compare favorably with the Lindemann’s Framboise I had just before trying the Liefmans. The former had a markedly more powerful aroma and flavor and a better mouthfeel. Still, this has no major flaws and is a serviceable substitute for a better lambic, particularly as a dessert brew.

330ml bottle, as Liefmans ’On The Rocks’. Poured on the rocks, as the label instructed me to do. Seemed to water the flavours down a bit. Big sugary sweet smoothie aroma. Taste is soft cherry and red berry fruits. Light and harmless.

(bottle) slightly hazy deep ruby colour with a frothy pink head. aroma of vanilla ice cream, raspberries and blackcurrant, with a light hint of butterscotch and cherries. flavour is more of the same, quite sweet, raspberries, cherries, strawberries and cream. medium-bodied with average carbonation. surprisingly ok.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
250 ml bottle shared by Werckmeister. Thanks Stefan!
Dark red body, with a small, frothy, pink head.
Aroma of sweet cherries, perfume, sweet berries, fruit tea.
Tastes like fruit tea, perfumed, sweet, a bit sour, with cherries and berries.
Quite light, but creamy mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes sweet- sour, perfumy, fruity, a bit salty.
Not my cup of tea, although this tastes like fruit tea. ;-) Too perfumy and sweet, overall feels too artificial. Not how I prefer a fruit beer.

bottle at home. red cloudy color, small white head. intense smell of red fruits and berries, smells of fruit tea, a bit artificial / parfumed smell, also light sour fruity smell, kinda weird and too intense for me. light to medium body, quite bubbly carbonation, bubbly mouthfeel, fruity taste, some sweetness, but overall more sourness, berries, bubbly / fruity / sour finish. overall like the taste a lot better, smell was too artifical. decent.
