Just like the peach it has great flavor but not much of a beer. Extremley fruity and poured to a fairly dark red color. Taste like that of champagne but was worth trying.

One of my favorite Lindemans. Great as an after dinner finisher. Very sour, which is my preference in Lambics.

After a friend of mine described a Lambic for me, I was afraid to try this. The aroma was soured rasberries. Really strong. The color was a hazy pale red with a pink layer of foam. I wanted to hold my breath when I took the first swallow, but Iím glad I didnít. The flavor was smooth fruit. Nice body and carbonation. Palate was clean. Nice surprise. I wouldnít want one of these every night. Only the aroma kept this beer from rating higher.

The aroma is almost like crushing a handful of raspberries under your nose. Itís very fruit - not a ídrink with a mealí kind of beer. Iím having a bottle right now, as dessert! Itís a fairly hazy beer, with a beautiful deep maroon color. The flavor doesnít stick around on the palate long, just leaving the impression of summer sweet fruit.

My first Lambic. This isnít what I expected, but I wasnít upset. Very good raspberry/cranberry aroma. Suprising medium reddish appearance with small pink head. Couldnít taste any regular beers flavors. Strong raspberry/cranberry flavor. Fruits are all over this "beer." Great

Bottle into small tumbler. We drank this as a before-dinner apertif at a new Latin American BYOB last night. Poured hazy mauve with frothy pink head. Active carbonation in the mouth with medium body, not watery, nicely balanced raspberry taste with some pear notes in the background, perfect level of acidity for the strength of the flavor. Aftertaste lasted quite a while. The lady of the table couldnít get enough.

Iíve become quite a fan of fruit beers. Interestingly enough, I had this beer quite some time ago and never reviewed it. It was actually the first fruit beer that I had ever had...actually, one of the first beers that I had tried. I remember the aroma being delightful...smell of raspberries wafting up toward my nose. Not artificial...but wine-like. The flavor was identical...a raspberry wine almost. Really, a great drink. Check it out if you have the cash.

Powerful raspberry/cranberry flavor, the best thing about this beer is its beautiful color and enticing fruity aroma, but to me the flavor is overwhelming and toofruity. This would be good with ice cream, but it is not a beer I would buy all of the time.
