This is a great desert beer. It’s even hard to call this one a beer. Tons of raspberry in the aroma. The flavor is bursting with raspberry and other tart fruits. I would go for this for desert over a piece of cake anyday.

This rose colored, raspberry lambic beer is right on! The acidity of this lambic beer blends perfectly with the raspberries. Magnificent but subtle citrus aroma, deep and clear rose colored body with a soft, smooth, pink head. Delicate, sweet tasting palate of raspberries with undertones of tart berry, elegant, sparkling clean natural taste. Slightly sour, mouthwatering finish. This is probably not the best beer for typical social gatherings. However, it lends itself very well for: Chocolate desserts (especially chocolate decadence), fresh raspberries, ice cream with a raspberry demi-glaze sauce, sorbet, vinaigrette, crème caramel, baked Alaska, Olympia oysters, caviar. Personally, this is my all time favorite beer, this beer has a Gold Medal from the World Beer Championships!

Sampled from a guest tap at Piece in Chicago. Aroma of rasberry and cherry hard candy. Reddish with a pink head. Candy like rasberry with a hint of caugh syrup like sweetness. Overall, just a little too candy like for me, but not bad for a small dessert.

12 oz bottle - First beer I’ve ever needed a corkscrew for. Good thing my wife likes wine from time to time. I was surprised to see that under the cap.. Pours a beautiful deep ruby red color. With a short pink head that laces the side of the glass. Aroma is amazingly tart raspberries mixed with some slight yeast aroma and a little bit of hay. Taste is quite fruity... malted yet quite fruity. It starts off quite sweet up front but on the back of each swallow it turns sour. The mouthfeel is quite carbonated and almost like champagne. Quite bubbly.. Delicous on a hot summer day and a very unique beer!

Really sweet, but not malted sweet. It has a very natural fruit flavor, unlike many summer ales with lemon.

This is a very interesting beer. The initial aroma is amazing. And the color is great. There is very, very little beer taste in this beer, in fact it tastes exactly what those other malt beverages -- Zima, etc. are supposed to tastle like. The sweetness is well balanced, the fruit is natural not artificial, and the malted barley taste comes through as the very last taste. I doubt that I will buy it again, but I am sure that my wife would like it, and I can imagine a midsummer’s night in Belgium drinking this on a picnic. Well done

Very Excellent beer!!! Great raspberry lambic flavor. I love it. Expensive as hell, but if you can get a bottle or two, or can afford a case, it’s worth it!

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2005 bottle. pours a dark red with a pink head. smell is overpowering rassberries and a sour smell. taste is raspberries and very subtly the sweet sour taste you would expect to find in a lambic. mouth feel is fizzy and syrupy.

shrubber85 (10528) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2006 Bottle. Very, very potent raspberry aroma - also strong hay (fresh alfalfa) aroma. Dark crimson red with small head. Sweet syrupy raspberry blended with grass/new hay flavor and a nice sour/tart finish. Very nice but may be too sweet for some

kepano (260) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 14, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2006 Poured a dark red color with a small and short-lived pinkish head. The nose was extremely powerful, almost like straight raspberry jam. It tasted like a thick raspberry soda. The mouthfeel was very syrupy and carbonated but pleasant nonetheless. I was not expecting it to be quite as sweet but I did enjoy it. If this stuff was as cheap as any other soda, I could drink it all day. I imagine it would make a good dessert too.
