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

Smells good (like raspberries), looks great (like a medium bodied wine). Tastes like sour wine. NOt my style. A very feminine concoction. A few associates of mine enjoy it mixed into delirium tremens.

Beer is capped, but also corked which requires a screw. More annoying than regular bottles. Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a raspberry dark red liquid light can see through with valentine-pink colored foamy head that lingers. Aroma is strong and waifs my way - speaking of a raspberry slushie with something more - a tart, woody root and seed of raspberry. Flavor is a fruity raspberry-sherbert punch with an unsettlingly strong rooty/seedy bite to it. This beer is more fruit punch than beer. But no sign of hops make this a winner. Sampled at 71 degrees Fahrenheit.

BBB63 (6037) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 14, 2003
Ruby hue with a okay pink head and some lacing. Full raspberry aroma with hints of malt, earthy hops. Fruity sweet up front followed by tartness midway. Finish was thin and muted. Medium-bodied. Fizzy mouthfeel. Not bad but too one-diminisional.

Good stuff, great nose and colour. The taste is very tarty, more so than the New Glarus Raspberry tart. In fact, it is almost too strong. Good stuff, but almost tastes a little too much like kool-aide.

what more is there to say - i like the tart taste of lindemans framboise.. always pleasant on the nose, an initial blast of sweet followed by a tartness that i have come to know and love.. [yeah, i'm cheezy] there is a slight aftertaste that i could do without, not too sure what that is, perhaps the old band-aid taste i read about??

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 3, 2003
Deep cherry red with a tan/pink head. Fresh crushed raspberry aroma with just a hint of malt. Flavors that follow the aroma. Somewhat refreshing, but a touch too sweet. A novice type lambic, but if you like raspberries this is a good one.

EKGoldings (526) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2005 One of my favorite fruit lambics. Wonderful fresh raspberry nose, candy raspberry taste, some tartness balanced with sugar, some lambic complexity but clearly muted. A nice low alcohol beer for a hot summer day.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2005 Candy-like raspberry aroma and flavor. Fizzy, champagne mouthfeel with somewhat syrupy finish. Seems sweeter than the Lindemans peche and kriek. A little too sweet for my taste but fun to share with a significant other on special occasions. This is sweet, gateway lambic.

Deep red color with pinkinsh head. Raspberries! Lots of raspberries in every aspect of the overall flavor of this beer. Great tart aroma. Puckering, dry, and very tart. Crisp and clean and very refreshing. At 2.5%, you can drink this for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2003 An expensive beer but worth it for a treat. Redish in color it is a sweet flavor but no wine like headache or sourness. Man after a long hot day it is ideal. Whoever says nobody drinks for taste should wise up quickly with this or a weiss.
