3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(500ml bottle) Very dense red body with a thin, filmy, frothy pink head. Very jammy nose - SWEET. Nice acidic tones, fizzy. Texture somehow matches the raspberry jamminess and taste - seeds and pockets of flavour. Great lambic.

Bottle. Poured a rich red with a light pink head that settled rather quickly. Aromas were malty and obviously raspberry. Flavor was again raspberry, with a strong tart aftertaste. Far too sweet for me, but the girlfriend liked it a lot.

Red with a pink head. Raspberry syrup / cordial flavour. Sweet raspberry syrup flavour balanced with a slight tartness. Ok, but way too sweet.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nearly clear and bright red with a pink sea foam head. Very strong natrual raspberry aroma. Very tart and sweet with a raspberry Jolly Rancher flavor. I would have expected it to be earthier to be honest. Rich palate.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2005 I’ve had this from the bottle and on tap. I’d recommend the bottled variety. The tap variety has a little bit of a wet dog flavor to it. Either way it has a nice berry aroma, a pink color with small bubbles. Great berry flavor. This is a good beer for after dinner.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured the color of strawberry jam with a pink-champagne head that fizzed away to leave a froth like you’d find on a hot bowl of cherry Jell-o. Big, syrupy, raspberry aroma. First sip made me pucker like a schoolgirl on a prom date... felt like a botox injection to the cheeks. Heavily sweet with a sharp acidity and non-stop raspberries. Needless to say, astringent finish... with a lingering sweet berry aftertaste.

Bottled (BB 01/2007)
Dark red, red-wine like color, small red head. Strong rasberry nose with some molasses. Very sweet, sugary rasberry flavor. Sourness picks up in the finish. Some woody notes in the background. A good beer but too sweet for my liking.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep red wine-like body with a pink aeromatic head. Sweet raspberry aroma. Highly carbonated and very sweet/tarte raspberry flavor perfectly suited for a dessert beer.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thick pink head. Dark ruby red color. Very sweet scent w/raspberries and something else like a Noodles & Company bathroom (that is good). Raspberry taste dominates. Medium bodied palate. A bit soapy? Very low alcohol content. Kinda girly. The first few gulps is good but then it is way too sweet. Wine-coolerish

Thanks Chuck for picking up this way over-priced weak-ass (alcohol) beer. The appearance is a thick velvety pink head with excellent lacing. A dark ruby red opaque body fills the glass. The aroma is red raspberries that hides a soapyness and very light barnyard aroma. The flavor is much like the aroma. There’s a bubblegum and barley flavor that lurks beneath too. The palate is tart, sticky, with so-so carbonation. Overall, this one’s not worth the money.
