Unless I don’t prefer sweet beers, I really iliked this one. This really IS the best framboise out there...

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2004 ’UNDERTONES of fresh raspberries’? I think not. Drinking this Lambic is second only, on the ’experiencing raspberries’ scale, to actually eating a raspberry. However, I love Raspberries and I love Lambics. I can’t think of anything NOT enjoyable about this beer. This is just a very fun/sweet/tart beer to drink. However, don’t pop the top expecting complexity.

This is the sweetest Raspberry Lambic I’ve ever had. Shockingly low in alcohol. High level of carbonation. Reminds me more of Champagne than beer. Very sweet and tasty. My girlfriend’s all-time favorite beer. I end up spending way too much money on this beer every time I take my girlfriend to the Toronado, where they serve it on tap.

Ruby red-pink clear colour with short lasting bright pink head. Strong sweet ripe rasberry and faint sour (cider) aromas. Medium clean body, sharp tongue and cheek puckering dry sour start with a sweeter middle and end turning again to sour and finally a crisp dryer refreshing aftertaste. I like it but the peche is more interesting, more delicate and doesn’t quite hit you between the eyes like this one. Defintely another friend to take home to your mum some time.

This is beer? Seems more like raspberry soda. I like Lindemans Peche, so I was looking forward to this, but I’m disappointed. The commercial description’s reference to ’undertones of fresh raspberries’ seems wildly wrong -- it’s not undertones at all, the whole flavor is of blazingly strong, sweet raspberries, with extra sugar.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2004 On tap: I enjoyed this on tap. The taste was deeper and fresher than from the bottle. For a non-Lambic drinker, this is a good way to try the style. Bottle: Total fruity experience. Never had a beer like this. Give this to a wine or champagne person and you'll have a convert.

Terrific beer! It’s almost as sweet as their Peche, but has a hint of tartness to balance it out. Strong flavor of real raspberries, not some syrup. Like champagne. A must try.

The aroma is total raspberries....like a poptart, then you get hit with an amazing raspberry tartness...great thirst quencher.

A very sweet tasting ale. Very strong & sweet rasberry taste, close to a sparkling wine. Would recommend this to anyone that doesn’t like a traditional ’beer’ taste.

It’s raspberry soda. The sweetness and fruitiness completely overpower any trace of beer flavor.
