If I wanted candy, I would have bought a lollipop. What the hell is this? I give it points for originality, but more of a belgian alcopop if there is such a thing. Weird.

Nice red color. Very sweet, but not overdone. Lots of raspberry in the nose and taste. Definitely an acquired taste. An excellent version of this style.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 24, 2003
750mL: Very sweet with the aroma of a package of fresh red raspberries from the store. Great fruit, tartness, and also bubbly. Nice pink head. Wheat and barrel qualities subtle and poke through, although fruit totally dominates the beginning, middle and end of this beer. Slightly overly sweet perhaps.

Verne (261) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - JAN 22, 2003
Wow the fruit hits you right in the nose some unusual sour flavors that make this beer interesting. But it does taste just a little bit like a wine cooler. Not my style

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2003 this looks gorgeous in the glass, clear red with a fluffy pink head. i had it served in a tulip glass, showcasing the clarity of the aroma, which is clear and full of raspberry tart, as is the first taste. the sweetness is present at first, but the finish is fully tart. thick, but very drinkable.

Wow, cloudy red wine with a pink head... no, that’s just what it looked like. Sweet, sour (i.e. like raspberries) - very sudden though. Not tart. May have had a slight malt twinge at the end. Not really a beer, but good nonetheless.

1/6/03: bottle. what can i say, i really dig these lambic beers. good amount of head when poured which reduces to a typical thin line carbonation (with lots of activity.) medium-high amount of lacing. wonderful smell of fruit and a bit of fermentation. i believe i can also smell hints of a barrel (maybe the imagination??) as far as colour, there is a lightly pink head which is accompanied by a full body of raspberry brilliance. very tasty, but could use a little more tartness. dominant raspberry flavor, with lots of sweetness, a little sourness and a clean, crisp finish.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2007 Tap at the Archer:Red with pink head. Enticing raspberry nose.Tart raspberry palate. Very nice
