Split with two ladies and they both enjoyed it. Magenta with a light and mostly diminishing light pink head. An aroma of raspberries and nothing else, but it is somewhat deep and enjoyable. Sweet raspberry flavor that is much more sweet rather than sour along with notes of watermelon jolly ranchers and cherry pie. Much better than I was expectng it to be after tasting that sickening Peche beer. Still though, this stuff is for toddlers.

I guess I don’t know enough about Lambics. My wife had this and it tasted like a wine cooler with more flavor. Lots of raspberry taste and smell. Too sweet for me. I would be made fun of all night if I ordered this for myself. It tastes fine if you’re expecting raspberry.

Just getting into lambics so this could take awhile...Intense raspberry aroma and flavor...champagne texture and spritziness...not my thing but obviously high quality and therefore interesting. ( I didn’t like my first five high-hopped IPAs...now the more biiter the better! ) I will explore this style again and get back to you...

Very tart, a tarty wine cooler, full of body, etc. I wouldn’t drink more than one at a session. My wife thoroughly enjoyed it.

My first Lambic, and I’ve had it many times since. It is a special flavor that you will like or not like. The aroma and flavor both are a rather strong fermented raspberry. Sometimes you can find bits of raspberry in the bottom of your glass. The taste and aroma seem to vaporize into your sinuses at times. An all-time favorite, but I like raspberry.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2005 Keith-hazy red color with a pink head. Taste is semi tart and very sweet. Enjoyable with every sip and can be a great after donner beer or stands alone just fine.

Bottled. Poured in a white wine glass. Cloudy, dark red colour. Pink medium head, which quickly diminishes. At first the aroma comes off as very authentic raspberries, but then gains a rather artificial character. It´s the other way round with the taste. First it´s too sweet and appears syrupy, but then leaves a tart, authentic raspberry aftertaste with notes of yeast. For me this framboise was a tad too sweet and not tart enough, but still it´s a decent beer.
