3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Holy cow is the toast ready yet - I’ve got fresh raspberry jam ready to go here. No wait it’s a rich pink liquid with sweet raspberry juice flavours instead. Lingers for a nice time but needed to be way more tart for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2006 Dark ruby red with pinkish head that fades to a ring of film rather quickly. Nice oily body coats the glass, strange given the amount of carbonation in this. Sour/tart raspberry aroma and flavor, taste a little to extract-like. Nice lingering aftertaste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is my first Lambic. Very strong fruit aroma. Nice pink head and ruby color. Sour notes wallop the taste buds. There’s a mid tongue experience where I can taste a hint of Belgium but the fruit comes rushing back in to finish it off. Enjoyable overall.

Hard to rate, but I really enjoyed this. After 6 or 7 others this was a great break. Very refreshing. Tart, sweet and intense flavor. I was surprised that there was no sourness with the aftertaste. Definitely will keep some around for special occasions.

Strong raspberry aroma, taste and color. Left lacing on the glass. 90% better than a wine cooler. The wife noted I hadn’t had a Lambic-fruit style beer so I tried and was surprised to find out that I actually liked it.

Rating #800. Bottle at Fall Beerfest In Toronto 2004. Deep ruby in colour with a pink head. Aroma of raspberry jam, very sweet and sugary, Flavour was very sweet, lots of raspberry pie filling with a light tartness. Finishes very sweet, medium length.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a dark pink beer with a huge bubbly head that leaves mark throughout my glass. Aroma is totally overpowered by raspberry syrup with extreme sweetness. Taste is mostly covered by the sweetness of the syrup and with some subtle sourness coming from the lambic base. This is one of my guilty pleasure beer because even thought I agree that is doesn’t respect all traditional guideline of lambic-fruit, the syrup is real good and refreshing…

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2005 not beer, but delicious! Too sweet to drink alot of. you certainly can not get drunk on this. But if your looking for something different to drink with a nice dinner or sweet dessert -- this is it. low alcohal content brings this one down a little

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2005 YUCK way to stinking sweet and that awfulraspberrie extract nose and palate are a disgrace to true lambics. This is meant for kids in Belgium because it tastes just like fruit punch.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
One of the best and best-known fruit lambics. At just 2.5% abv, it’s good summer lunchtime drinking. Poured the colour of Ribena, with plenty of fizz and a huge frothy pink head. The nose has that classic lambic sweet-sour combination. Raspberries to the fore, plus a hint of the oak barrels in which the beer is aged. The palate is syrupy and extremely fizzy. It begins intensely sweet but there are enough fruity acids and alcohol in the finish to save it from being a fizzy fruit juice. In fact, the finish delivers a decent slug of sweet sherry. Just a little short on complexity. (Bottle)
