Too much sweet. It feels like you are drinking a sugar full juice. Too much carbonation too.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
250 ml bottle. Pours a clear red with a small, short lived, pink head. Strong, sweet aroma of red berries with some acidity. Very sweet and artificial flavour of red berries with a dry, tart finish. Light body with a watery texture and fizzy carbonation. Tastes more like soda than beer.

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.

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.
