Red cola body topped by a creamy pink head. That sounds unwholesome. Sweet raspberry aroma. The aroma is nice in a raspberry kind of way but it is lacking in complexity. The flavor is shockingly sweet raspberry. A tiny bit of tartness but all of that comes from the raspberries. Nice body, medium with a medium tart finish. Not as overboard sweet as I expected. Needs more acidity to really totally please me.

Bottled: Dark red coloured. Reddish head. Fruity from the raspberry. Has some vague earthy notes. Flavour is like raspberry fruityjuice. Very smooth and pleasant to drink, but way too sweet for my likings. I miss the sour edge.

I know this is not 100% lambic, but I really enjoyed it. It was strongly aromatised with raspberry. Rather thick raspberry jam flavour. Very fruity and fresh! Really nice.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2004
Dark red coloured. Aroma of raspberry jam from Den Gamle Fabrik. Notes of banana and candy. Very sweet raspberry flavour with some lambic sourness in the background. Rather artificial.

Beutiful deep redish purple color with a light purple head. Very fruity rasberry aroma. This does taste good, but not really as a beer. Kinda tastes like a really good wine cooler to me. I can appriciate the fresh rasberry taste though instead of syrup. So, get it if you want a good fruity beverage, not if you want a good beer.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2006 Fresh raspberry aroma and a fizzy, semi-frothy head. Nice fuscha lacing. Flavor is wonderfully fruity. Sweet from start to finish. Awesome with raspberry sorbet or pour a shot over a cup of the sorbet.

Draught at Faegens in Syracuse. Huge strawberry aroma. Looks sorta like wine with big pink head. Slightly cloudy. Start is sweet, sour is tart raspberry. Gorgeous lacing. Finish sorta tastes like cough syrup unforunately.

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 9, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2005 Bottle. Color is a beautiful dark ruby red with no head. Aroma is amazing. It smeels like sweet raspberry dessert. The taste is mush the same, being very sweet and very very fruity. I also feel that it’s a bit over carbonated. Makes it seem like Sangria. I have no idea how to rate this, because if I wanted an alcoholic fruit juice I would rate it a 5, but since I want a beer I don’t know what to say. Sorry, sweet lambics aren’t my thing.

Deep dark reddish purple pour. Fizzy but with a little lasting pink head. Aroma is strong in raspberry and not much else. Flavor has initial sweet raspberry punch followed by a Belgian sourness. A slight Belgian musty flavor in the background. A sipping beer due to the sweet and sourness.
