UPDATED: MAR 20, 2003 this looks gorgeous in the glass, clear red with a fluffy pink head. i had it served in a tulip glass, showcasing the clarity of the aroma, which is clear and full of raspberry tart, as is the first taste. the sweetness is present at first, but the finish is fully tart. thick, but very drinkable.

Wow, cloudy red wine with a pink head... no, that’s just what it looked like. Sweet, sour (i.e. like raspberries) - very sudden though. Not tart. May have had a slight malt twinge at the end. Not really a beer, but good nonetheless.

1/6/03: bottle. what can i say, i really dig these lambic beers. good amount of head when poured which reduces to a typical thin line carbonation (with lots of activity.) medium-high amount of lacing. wonderful smell of fruit and a bit of fermentation. i believe i can also smell hints of a barrel (maybe the imagination??) as far as colour, there is a lightly pink head which is accompanied by a full body of raspberry brilliance. very tasty, but could use a little more tartness. dominant raspberry flavor, with lots of sweetness, a little sourness and a clean, crisp finish.

Pretty dark red color. Very sweet raspberry aroma. The flavor had a nice tartness to it that made the sweetness bearable. Yummy.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2004 Aroma is of raspberry preserves, served on white bread with a bit of Kool-Aid to wash it down. Scintillating, clear red in color, with plenty of effervescence and a pink, foamy head which diminishes quickly. Syrupy, sweet raspberry juice is all over the place, but a nice, almost candyish tartness serves to keep the sweetness in check. A hint of woodiness in the finish, otherwise it's largely the same as the rest of the beer. Moderately carbonated palate and light bodied. A staple of celebrations of all kinds since I discovered it years ago. Thoroughly un-beery but it is quite a festive beverage! I believe the bottled (750ml) version's alcohol to be a bit higher than the listed 2.5% here, I think it's closer to 4?

Lots of raspberries in this one. Thick aroma of fresh pressed raspberries and a very light, but noticable hop presence. Very smooth, almost syrupy palate with great complexity. Sweet and sour are captured in their entirity making a lasting impression that leaves me wanting more. Doesn’t really taste so much like a typical beer, but has beer/lambic qualities to it and a great drinkability.

The fact that this is a beer didn’t hit me till it was going down. Really tart taste and SO drinkable.

I have a hard time realizing that this is beer. Tastes like sweet and sour raspberry candy. Everyone I have ever introduced to this beer has loved it.

Fresh rasberies in the nose with a rasberry color. Fairly straight foward, sweet tart rasberries with a little oak. Nice lively mouthfeel, good for desserts.
