3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a definite red color with small beige head. Aroma of tartness and raspberries. Medium to high carbonation. Almost over the top on the raspberry sweetness (how much raspberry syrup did they use?). This one is nice for a half-pint or so. I prefer it mixed with a stout like Guinness.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sweet raspberry pastry aroma seems somehow over-produced (like a plastic-wrapped pastry). Clear reddish-brown with shy tan head that recedes to ring with minor lacing. Strong raspberry jam flavour seems overly sweet and juice-like with just a very light tart finish to take the edge off. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Bottle (City Market Burlington, Nov. 2004) sampled with beerbuzzmontreal, ClarkVV, MartinT, muzzlehatch, Olivier, Rastacouere and Simon.

2.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Scarlet rose in color with a resounding, foamy pink head. Aroma is of raspberry Jolly Ranchers. Very fresh smelling. Tastes very sweet and of ripe raspberries. Syrupy and thicker than expected. Mouth watering, sticky finish. My wife liked it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dark red color. Unpleasant aroma of raspberries. Much too sweet flavor of raspberries, feels a lot like fruit syrup, yuck.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aromas of plastic, raspberries, woody hints and earth make up the nose. Once again, this is a pinky red colored beer, in which an insane amount of residual sweetness resides and hunts your wildest unbeery fantasies. Strong overwhelming raspberries, balance is inexistent. You just need tartness in that kind of beer, typical sticky palate, very low carbonation.

Raspberry dominates this Lambic. Enjoyable, refreshing and tart. Not something I could drink on a regular basis, but a nice change of pace from an over the top, hoppy pale ale I usually drink.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(on 33cl bottle)Pretty high ratings I see, for this, slghtly better than other siryp-based fruitl-lambics.Big, but not overwhelming, rasberrysent. Small youghurt-feeling, but still a fresh/sweet taste. Tad sour finish, still cloying. Refreshing, but not worth todays rating at 89.

12oz bottle cold. The aroma is full of raspberries and so is the taste. Color is a deep purple - maroon. Small head but heavily carbonated. Flavor is just what you would expect; tart, fruity, and sweet. Just the right amount of alcohol. Light, but sour, raspberry aftertaste.
