3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma and appearance are incredible. the sweet raspberry filled aroma is very nice. the appearance is quite good looking too, pink head with a light red color for the body. the flavor is extraordinarily sweet...too sweet. this is still a lambic but you cant really tel unless you really look for it. there is only a touch of the sourness in the flavor if you look for it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pungent is just about the perfect word to describe every aspect of this lambic. The aroma is of total reaspberries and almost something cherry like. The appearance is reddishy velvet/magenta with a thin reddish, lavender head. The taste however possessed some sort of medicinal cough medicine quality. Robitussin was my exact description of what it tasted like. A raspberry, extremely extremely dry aftertaste, with artificial sugars and a thick, syrupy medicinal taste. Very citrusy dry ending....definitely not as good as i thought the hype had this one at.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Seemingly authentic raspberry flavor, didn't seem to have as overwhelming a taste as the other Lindeman's lambic I've tried. The aftertaste did this one in though. Sticky (in a bad way) and made me wanna go rinse my mouth out.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Like many of its Lindemans brothers/sisters very sweet, with a wonderful aroma. The Framboise has a bit more bite than the other fruit lambics from Lindemans, and gets a small nudge closer to a true lambic, but still misses, perhaps b/c of the artifical attitives. . .

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sweet framboise aroma from a mile away. Pink/red color, pink head, good lace. Looks too artificial. Sweet and sour, framboise, hint of oak. Long lasting finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2009 Perfect murky ruby appearance. Strong tart raspberry aroma and flavor, very dry and tart, but balanced by correct amount of sweetness. Leave my tongue coarse afterwards. RERATE NEEDED.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
In addition to the nice color and generous head, this one features a nice balance between sweetness and tartness.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Raspberry juice aroma, somewhat artificial. Very sweet with some sourness to compensate. Sugary and syrupy. Raspberry juice, in fact more fruitjuice than lambic, teh lambic is hardly noticeable. Still nice to drink, though.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2005 This is impressive. Pours a dark red and has a decent carbonation about it. Has a strong citrus aroma about it, obviously. The taste is of raspberry and it finishes somewhat tart. This is a great dessert beer. Recommended to all.
