Deep purple body with a pinkish head. Smells of pure raspberries. Tart and sweet flavors, some sourness and dryness, tatstes of real raspberries.

Cranberry juice appearance with minimal head, this brew changed my conception of lambics--in a good way! Pleasant aroma of freshly crushed raspberries, though it also conjures up thoughts of alcopops. The raspberry flavor was delightful, accompanies by a lingering salty sourness that incited the palate to beg for more.

Very impressed with the aroma and color. Small bubbles like champagne, flavor just explodes though not overly sweet, but balanced nicely between the fruit and grain, nice tart finish.

My, oh my, this is one delightfully, delectable, scrumptious, savory, flavorsome, luscious, mouth-watering, treat. Open this baby up and its fruity raspberry heaven. It just screams yummyness. The first thing is the aroma, how they make the raspberry smell better then what raspberries smells like is beyond me. Its a raspberry delight with a very hard tart twinge that just flows into your nasal cavity like smoke. The color is an amazing deep red, nearly opaque, and still glows with a astonishing crimson-ruby intensity. It has a very unique pinkish head of large bubbles that looks sort of like the fizz from a dark-purple grape juice. Ohhh....then there's the awesome taste, so very nicely packed with raspberry fruityness, with a very nice, highly sweet tangyness and twinge thats perfectly tart and level. Feel is tartly sweet and silky smooth with a heavy to medium full body and smacks of soured sweetness the whole way through. All that yummyness of raspberry tartness is just fantastic. Have one and it'll change your whole perspective of what barley malts, hops, yeast, and raspberries can really do. Wow!

To all of you guys out there that are on a budget, do not let your girlfriend try this beer because they will want to drink this all of the time. To me this is the true "champagne" of beers. Explodes over the tongue when sipped slowly.

On tap. Whopper aroma of rasberry. Deep ruby red. Nice smooth and not too sweet or effervescent. Ilike this better than their kriek.

Very, very red in color. Huge raspberry nose on this one. The head is deep pink. Actually, not overwhelmingly sweet. Could have been more sour in my opinion. My girlfriend liked it.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2007 Wow! I really like this one. I love the huge magenta head it pours. The taste is totally raspberry. It tastes very fruity, almost like a cider or wine, and it is a really special drink. For those who like sweet stuff, it is not too sweet. It’s not too sweet for me. I love it! 2 Thumbs up! :) When you take the full body into your mouth it surrounds all your taste buds and makes you happy. I didn’t want another one after I had it but it was very satisfying.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2004 red body and i mean red. With a pleasent carbonated magenta head. Candy like aroma!!! toooo sweet for me. too mild of a malt taste to balance out the sweet taste. I had i by its self. It would need a real sharp cheese to balance out the sweet aste.

On tap. The last time I had it on tap, it was sickly syrupy. This time was much better. Beautiful purple red color with a pinkish head. Aroma is straight on sweet raspberry. On the palate, strong raspberry, but tempered by a definite beer flavor, and then a kick of pure lambic sourness at the end. Not the most traditional stylistically speaking, but tasty nonetheless.
