COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A clean natural tasting brew with undertones of fresh raspberries and a wonderful aroma.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2010 Dark hazy red coloured, pink head. Strong sweet raspberry aroma. Sweet and sour flavour of raspberries, aspartame, some lactate. Sweet and sirupy finish. Seems pretty artificial if you ask me. Pretty bad, but on the other hand i’m just not a big fan of raspberries in general.

Raspberries, raspberries, raspberries. Hard to compare to any other beer with all the raspberry flavor. Pours a bright red color, with a pinkish head that quickly dissipates. Sour, raspberry flavor dominates. Not something I’d regularly enjoy, but an interesting experiment.

skortila (4723) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2004
Raspberry aroma; sweet and a little tart. Purple-red body with a lasting pink head. Taste is sweet and fruity (raspberry offcourse..), some marzipan and tartness. Quite sweet and sirupy. Okay

I suppose you really need to be in the proper state of mind for this experience, unfortunately I wasn’t. Kool-aid, really sweet raspberry sody-pop, syrup for pancakes at IHOP. Not beer & not for my fridge again.

A fascinating brew, without a doubt- but only if you enjoy raspberries. Brilliantly red, small head- lotsa carbonation. Sweet raspberry in the nose and mouth. Yum.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - APR 25, 2004
Ruby red body with a frothy strawberry-cream head. Big fruity lambic taste, tastes very fresh like the berries were just picked, that good. As enjoyable to drink as candy. Only knock is that it is probably a little too sweet and syrupy. Could use a little lightening. Still,this is surely one of the better lambics offered.

For those who do like lambics, Lindemans is a brewer as proficient as most. For those who like good beer, why are you quaffing fizzy, fruity stuff like this?

deep purple and red with a fizzy head. aroma is intensely raspberry, maybe a hint of yeastiness. very fruity/estery and sweet, almost like a sparkling wine. leaves some residual tartness, but seems absolutely perfect for dessert...

DocLock (8331) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2004
Purplish/red in color, with a decent off white head. Great raspberry aroma! Tastes slightly tart, but still very sweet. Finishes smooth and fruity. Very refreshing.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2005 My first lambic! Wow, the aroma hits you from three feet away, all raspberries. Like the juice I used to drink on New Year’s, only so much better. Not too sweet and so natural tasting. After trying this, I’d like to taste a normal lambic; one with more alcohol.
