Not quite as complex as I thought after the first time I tried it, but still dangerously easy to drink! Beautiful cherry red color with pink head, fading to white lace. Nose of sweet raspberries and, well, beer. Taste of sweet raspberries, malt, followed by a little lambic sourness and a little hops. Long finish of sweet raspberries and bitterness. The vanilla and cream must be my imagination, but it makes me think of a great dessert in a French patisserie. Yummie is the right word, and while it is easy to drink I should think that a 12 bottle case would last a very long time. I mean, how many of these could you really drink in a year?

Bottle. A dark red color with a hot pink foamy head. The raspberry aroma is strong and carries well into the flavor with the tart citric elements one would expect. Sweet and yummy but not a lot like the beer I enjoy drinking.

I don't know if this is officially considered a beer...but a wonderful raspberry fragrance and very nice reddish color, very refreshing, tastes almost like strawberry/raspberry hard candy, in liquid form. Not huge on the alcohol punch, in fact, couldn't even taste any, but something really interesting.

Great beer, more like an after dinner desert. Beers like this are great after a meal, and should be enjoyed sparingly.

My first Lambic. Quite interesting. I enjoyed it very much. Sweet and sour raspberry flavor with a nice carbonation over the tongue.

Raspberry nose, colour of dark red roses, slight pink head. Wow, such raspberry flavour, sweet, tart, terrific.

Not a huge fan of the style - but really enjoyed this one. Clean raspberry aroma, deep ruby red appearance - looks like a burgundy wine. Very pleasing to the palate - coats your mouth with flavor - nice sweet aftertaste reminds me of eating fresh raspberries. Not an everyday ale - would be good for a special occasion.

Draught - Fruity nose that smells like Rasberry jello. Slightly bitter - but tastes great. It is very refreshing. This is a great post workout beer or pre appetizer champagne substitute.

This is gross: raspberry jell-o mix with some sourness failing to provide adequate support. Looks ridiculous, too.

Great colour, and an amazing smell! Great head as well. Fantastic taste, and the aftertaste is phenominal. You barely think you are drinking beer...its more like a champagne with raspberry nectar!
