Had an unusual mix of brews with a few stouts before this. Right up in your face with the raspberries. Has the sweet and sour thing going on reminds me of a sparkling wine. Very different and I look forward to tasting more of this style.

A fabulous lambic that fills the mouth with sweet raspberries. Has the exact right pop and goes down smoothly. This is a desert beer. After you drink it you wonít want other beers in the same sitting. I enjoyed it after 2 glasses of wine and it blended well.

This is by far my favorite fruit lambic. Raspberry dominates the entire flavor profile start to finish, and the sourness compliments the fruit nicely.

Like a raspberry champagne. Big raspberry aroma. If I didnít know this was beer Iíd probably think it was something else..

Itís hard to classify this with other beers. I think íundertonesí is the wrong word to describe the rasberry flavors. I would say the rasberry flavor is front and center. Very sweet and fruity, but also tart and refreshing. An interesting drink, and my first Lambic, so Iíll have to try more.

Deep raspberry color, redish-purple head, decent lace. Nose is sweet, the raspberry tones dominate. Sweet at the front, the top light, acidic finish, that is also dry and tart, quite a good lambic. Ranks #525 on my master berr list.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2003 God I love these lambics... wish I could get my hands on some without the added fruit flavors. This one had all the complexity of the peche, most of the sweet fruityness of the kriek, and the tart flavor you would expect from fresh raspberries. Incredible!
