Orangish-red colour with a pink head. Big aroma of sweet raspberry jam. The tartness of the fruit meshes very well with the dry lambic base. Refreshing stuff that I prefer slightly to the Kriek. [Toronto Christmas Party ’04]

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Intens Purple-red color with some hazyness and with creamy pink head. Great fruity aroma’s of ripe blood-oranges, raspberry pureé, mullberry’s, fresh pineapple and fresh mint-leafs. Nice refreshing mouthfeel with powerfull fruit aroma’s. first the attack from the sour blood-oranges and all kinds of red berry’s then the cremyness of fruit yogurt and sour candy’s that brings a smoothness in the taste. Nice clean fruityness in the afthertaste with a great sour kick and a faint touch of mint.

Purplish red color, pinkish head. Bigger aroma of sweet raspberries. Cloyingly sweet raspberry flavor, too sweet without any real sourness to balance it out. Lighter to medium bodied, kind of sticky. Not bad, but I prefer some of their others to this. Thanks joey_capps.

Intense ruby red, some white bright head .Looks appealing. Very nice raspberry aroma, sweetened yes, but still true and that works well with lambic base. Nice sour front, followed by sweet fruits. Good balancing sweet and sour.

A pink head forms over this overly sweet rasberry drink. The initial impression was that this was going to be a fruity beer -- it sure was. It was almost too bubbly and too sweet. There was little beer taste and even that was just a little yeast. This is a great beverage for non-alcoholic cider drinkers.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark red body with a moderate pink head. Sweet and tart rasperries dominate both the aroma and flavour. Has a sweet high quality raspberry jam characteristic to the it. Pleasant raspberry tartness balances it out. Average palate. I enjoyed this one a lot, though it is a bit sweet to drink on its own. Save it for dessert where it will be quite nice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottled, 0.25l) Beautiful, deep red color with a pink, medium head. Very strong, sugary-sweet raspberry juice aroma. Extremely sweet and sugary raspberry flavor with a very distant hint of sourness. Medium-bodied, sugary palate with low, fizzy carbonation. A nice, good-looking lambic totally ruined with an absurdly excessive amount of sugar.

Nice rich ruby red with pink head. Sour raspberry nose almost like laffy taffy! Heavey mouthfeel with sourness rounding out a very sweet mid palate. Tons of raspberry flavor with light sourness. Kinda one dimensional but damn tasty.
