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!

A nice blood red brew with a flamingo head that is very moderate. A sugary sweet blend of cherries and resberries. Can not hold its own with the New Glarus red, but is still a respectable lambic. Nice refreshing brew.

Had from bottle at The 12 Hour Belgian Beer Party at Pizza Port Carlsbad on March 8, 2003
#25 on the program. Wow...a very sweet aroma hits you with a bit of cherries and/or raspberries - a bit winey as well. The beer pours dark red with a pink head that disappears later. The beer's flavor is one not to be missed. IT's very sweet, but not as sweet as some of the others I tasted. The ABV here was 5% (not the 2.5 listed at Ratebeer) and I fear the 2.5% would be a bit too low. With the 5%, you get a slight acidity on the finish, but it's just the right amount. This would make a great dessert beer as it is easy to drink and very sweet/sugary.

Incredible fruity nose which makes you wonder where the vanilla icecream is that goes with it. Neon red - low head. Sweet, sodalike with a sour background - could be more though. All in all refreshing and nice.

Couldn't decide if it was a beer or a red wine. It's very sweet (hence the dilemma). The essence of raspberries is very noticeable. It's comparable to a sparkling grape juice. In all, it's a very good dessert beer.
