Very nice look to this lambic, deep ruby red with a very lacy pink small pink head. The smell is delicious, reminds me of raspberry pie. The taste is just way too sweet for me. For those who are "sweeter" than i though, this is probably a great pick.

Nice reddish pink medium head. Dark ruby red color that I couldn't see through. Bananas and raspberries in the aroma. Very sweet and slight banana taste with a Granny Smith apple like tartness. A slight wheat taste, but very faint behind the sweet and tart tastes. More than one would be too much.

DanielBrown (4112) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2004
Bottled from Only Fine Beer (website). I absolutely love Lindemans' products, but this was a bit of a disappointment. It is VERY sweet. Wine gum/dolly mixture flavours - fruit cordial style raspberry and not enough beer flavour to go round (understandable at 2.5%). Smells great, looks great, but just not complex enough. No real finish, just the merest hint of vinousness on the very beginning.

What can I say that hasn't been said? Small pink head, deep purple-red color. Smells like sweet raspberries, tastes like sweet raspberries. Slightly tart finish. My wife loves this stuff. She hates beer. Enough said.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - FEB 13, 2004
Deep red/purple pour with a fluffy purple/pink head. Carbonated raspberry fruit punch flavor all the way through. Very sweet, almost too much so. One bottle is delicious, more would be overkill.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - FEB 11, 2004
Pours cloudy ruby red with a medium purplish head. Nose is raspberry. Flavor starts sweet raspberry and finishes kinda tart. Interesting , but are you sure this isn't Boones Farm???

Has a raspberry flavor throughout. Nice and sweet flavor. Now I know why it costs so much.

I really enjoyed this beer, moreso than the lindemans kreik. Nice raspberry aroma, looks quite attractive when poured out. Definitely very sweet, but highly enjoyable.

Pours out raspberry red, like you would think. Little to no head with limited lacing. Aroma was a very fruity, as was the smooth tangy raspberry flavor. Very much a liquid sorbet with a nice sour finish. Very nice desert drink. I would like it better if it actually had a little more alcohol.
