Well I agree with those that have difficulty classifying it as a beer. After having removed the cork and smell the aroma, it comes across as a cross between a beer and a dessert wine. Has a good color and aroma. A different drink to have that I would recommend like some wines as an after dinner drink

Bursting with aroma, if blindfolded I would have guessed it was raspberry puree and would have poured it over ice cream. A bit of sour, but balanced nicely with sweetness. So very drinkable (of course, not very alcoholic). Brilliant stuff. (on tap, The Old Monk, Dallas, TX)

Theres quality in its dankness! Donít try and get drunk. This would be good with Christmas dinner instead of wine.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this in a large bottle. The nose is heavy raspberry, flowers and perfume. The brew pours a clear cranberry pink/red with a large thick creamy head the color of a strawberry milkshake. The head is fully lasting with great lacing. The flavor is very sweet with a granny smith apple tartness. The raspberry flavor is very prevalent. The finish is both sour and sweet with a moderate acidity. The medium body is creamy and soft with a sticky feel to the finish. My first sample of the Lambic style. A bit fruity for more than one glass. Would be good with a slice of cheesecake or a similarly rich desert.

Really good stuff, but a little too much fruit flavor for me. I loved it, but I couldnít drink much before it got old.

I could smell this 2 feet away. Tastes like a overly carbonated raspberry wine cooler.

This has some variability. From a fizzy raspberry soda pop and beer feeling thatís much better than Iíve made it sound to a very complex, fruit, grain, yeasts and bacteria extravaganza. Check your cork for complexity.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2004 Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. Pretty raspberry color and a strong raspberry aroma. The flavor is sweet and fruity throughout. I liked this despite it not tasting like most beers. It has kind of a wine-cooler feel to it.
