3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

This could almost be used as a pie filling, it is very thick and sweet. This is good stuff, just not an everyday beer.

Tap.6oz sample.Cloudy,Cloudy,raspberry red colored.Slightly red head sits afloat of this beauty and never leaves.I could smell the persons aroma across from me(influenced the try).Boasting with fresh raspberry.The mouth is bombarded with raspberry pits before the juices come out in the finish.I would love to try more of this.Wish I wouldn’t have forgot to get a full glass,last night.

Enjoyable but a bit too heavy on the rasberries.

2001 VERSION: Nice fresh nose, a bit too tart, maybe because it’s a young bottle. Nothing out the ordinary for a frambois, I guess it’s the easiest to find.

Taste like a rasberry tart. Very good for what it is supposed to be, but not something that I would buy regularly. Seems like something that would make a good mixer.

Wowies. Awesome dessert beer with light ruby color and chamapgne like carbonation and mouth feel. Taste was full on raspberries that got quite tart near the bottom fo the bottle. If it werent 8 bucks a bottle this would be a once a week treat.

nice ruby read color with nice head, aroma and taste was that of rasberries, was my first lambic so I was kinda caught offguard a little as it didn’t really taste like beer to me, but I could easily enjoy this as a dessert typr beer.

tastes good - but doesn’t taste like beer, tastes more like champagne or a wine cooler if they were decent. too low in alcohol for me to justify drinking it except with dessert. This is fruit, not beer (except in name alone).
