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.

3.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 itís 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 donít know what to say. Sorry, sweet lambics arenít 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.

Pours a very fizzy blonde with some very apparent hues of purple. Aromas of sweet rasberries and thats it. This tastes like really good rasberry soda. Very little else going on. Way too expensive for me to go out and purchase another one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pretty ruby color topped by a pinkish fluffy medium head that laces well and sticks around for the entire glass. Aroma is like a decadent raspberry cake. Really, really nice aroma. Flavor is raspberry, tart and sweet. Nice authentic rasberry flavor...not like artifical flavoring agents. Somewhat overly sweet perhaps. Body is sightly overcarbonated. Good beer, though.

Tried this one to compare to my Kriek review. Very similar, but I enjoyed this a bit more. I cant drink more than a small glass of this, but the aroma/appearance/flavor are superb. Great to mix with Hoegaarden unless you are a beer purist.

On tap at Pikes Place brewing in Seattle. Pours red with a white/pink fizzy head that leaves us on time. A crank-up your cilia nose of raspberries. Tart and fruity and sweet. High alcohol burn, or maybe thatís just the acidity. Iím disgruntled that they serve such a small portion for such a high price, but thatís Seattle for ya.

on tap: they poured this one out in a champagne flute of sorts. burgundy-red with a small white head that was gone in a flash. musty raspberries in the nose and straight through to the palate. like kool aid with a kick. the acidity builds up on your palate giving quite a tart taste. i suppose if you dont want a soda and not a beer this is were you go!

A decent lambic, pours opaque crimson, large frothy blush head leaves nice lacing. Flows from the glass with a phosphorescent flocculence that warms me to the core. Taste is ripe raspberries with hints of geotic sweetness throughout.
