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 couldn’t 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 that’s much better than I’ve 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.

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.
