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.

Bottled at tahe Grey Lodge in Phila. Lambic just aren't my thing. Wonderful smell of raspberries. Poured a nice purplish color. Had good amount of flavor. It was just to sour for me.

Very good. I love these lambics. The framboise has a huge bouquet of raspberry. Taste was sweet up front but sour in the finish. A good balance. Much more sour than the Peche. Very good.

Way too sweet. Tastes of fruit syrup, not fruit. Best as in introduction to brett flavor for those used to coke.

Beautiful aroma, that is if you like raspberries like I do. The raspberry completely dominates the flavor also, and it's quite sweet. Closer to a champagne than a beer, very refreshing and a god way to break up the palate after a few stronger beers.

My first lambic, I find myself strangely excited! Gorgeous almost blood red color, slightly translucent with a pinkish purple head that disappeared quickly. Aroma is all fruit, raspberries, currents and black cherries - yet not as I've ever experienced them before. Sweet and rich flavor, again heavy fruit with a pleasant tart finish. Palate is syrupy with generous carbonation. Wow, like dessert in a glass! I think I shall find some more lambics quite soon...

Wooohooo! This is the real deal, other lambics seem weak and flavorless after Lindemans. The Framboise is Sweet and smooth, but share with a date becase it is too good to drink alone. Big FAT berry taste and smell. Run don't walk to the liquor store and try it out.
