A clean natural tasting brew with undertones of fresh raspberries and a wonderful aroma.

Excellent Fruit Lambic! I dont know why all people saying: Cantillon and 3Fonteinen - the BEST and so Limited. Its much more intense aroma of raspberries (dunno why ?!) (and i dont say that the 3Font and Cant lambics are bad). In Comparison with Rose de Gambrinus - its much more intense raspberry aroma (actually fenomenal). It is as u drink real raspberry fruit juice. Its red/pink with red/pink head. Its sweet! So sweet. And it gives you additional feel that you drink fruit raspberry juice. But I love Lindeman’s sugar versions. The newest are with Acesulfame K, which is dangerous cancer sweetener. How dare you Lindemans ????? You ruin all the work from the centuries, all the art! So I take 5 points from Overall. It should be 5 TOTAL. Other belgian lambics are not sweet, but it is tradition not to be sweet. It is not bad. Its real beer. But for sweet lovers - this lambik is a BOMB. But dont drink it too much. It may cause cancer. Some belgians drink sweet lambics, some sour. BUT mainly if it is sweet must be with stevia or sugar, not SWEETENER!!!

Pours a light ruby with a stark white head, bubbly and soft. The aroma is sharp raspberry, the buzz and sweetness filling my nostrils and making me wish I had some rich vanilla ice cream to pour this over. Buzzy, sweet and fresh, too, on my tongue, leaving a sticky reserve behind after the swallow. The head is minimal from the start, but is easily refreshed by spinning the bulb of the glass. This is perfect for a Sunday breakfast, I can see how easily this would cut the grease of the bacon and the umami of a plate of eggs with a bright refreshing fruit! Very nice, very flavorful and very much one of my new favorite breakfast beers!

Pour amateurs de sucre. Arômes de tartes au framboise et bois de chêne. Le sucre candi prend beuacoup de place. Goût de framboise intense. Très ou trop sucré. Un petit côté citronné se fait sentir. Excellente mélangé avec du mousseux. Très bonne mais à partager.

Poured a beautiful candy red with a small off white head that left a thin lace. Aroma is intensely sweet with raspberry and dark fruit juices. Flavor is sweet and sour raspberries. Light syrupy juice body with moderate carbonation and a mouth drying finish. Wish it had a higher abv, but this will have to do for my sweet tooth.

Tastes, essentially, like you would expect high quality, carbonated, pure raspberry juice to taste like; you barley know it is a beer (sorry, couldn’t resist). In all seriousness, it is great. Foamy head, great colour, rich appearance and taste. Would prefer slightly more alcohol/robustness. Bought a bottle in Cocoa Beach, Fl, and after a few "pure" glasses, mixed it with some Hendrick’s gin, tonic and a lime wedge for a very refreshing, summery cocktail.

From 12oz bottle, capped and corked, poured into Belgian tulip glass

Aroma: Tons of raspberries, much like raspberry juice

Appearance: purple/brown with red hues, clear, foamy pink head

Taste: Sweet, Sour, Fruity

Palate: Medium body, soft carbonation

Overall: Wow. One of my favorite fruit beer. Loads of raspberries. Nice with tad sour to match raspberries. I forget that I’m drinking a beer. Very low alcohol. Super tasty. Great beer to share with folks who "don’t drink beer."

Bottle shared with the missus. Slightly dirty reddish pour with a pinkish head. Lots of raspberries, very light funk, syrup, sugar, vanilla and some cherries.
