Had this on tap at Duckworth’s in Charlotte. Came out a dark ruby red with a small pinkish cap of foam on top. Really sweet nose, with raspberry, lemon, strawberry, and slight astringent smack on the finish. Crisp, bubbly, easy to drink. A delicate feel is nice here given the low ABV. Sweet juicy raspberries, tart strawberry, with a touch of acetic tartness on the finish. Like a jar of fresh jam. This isn’t a beer for everyone, nor is it an everyday beer, but I really liked it. Next to NG’s Raspberry Tart, this may be my favorite Raspberry-forward beer to date. A good one for celebrations and one tailor-made for desserts.

Bottle thanks to Louis-Philippe, thanks man! Pours a dark red with a medium pink head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of raspberry jam, feeling real enough and not hinting at all at a sweet beverage. Taste is a bit sweet, thouh, and jammy again. Raspberry Jell-O, a little seeds, not too natural on that side. A nice and gentle tartness comes to save it from becoming a complete sweet mess. Body moderate, carbonation low to medium and mouthfeel just like some raspberry juice. Overall a fun drink, maybe not an adequate choice for a "before supper" drink though. Still a bit too sweet, really.

From a 750ml. Pours deep opaque raspberry color, with a reddish-pinkish frothy head. The nose is powerful raspberry, vanilla, sour notes. The flavors are the consistent with the aroma; would like it to be a little less sweet and a little more sour, but it’s a fair light-weight lambic and enjoyable for what it is, call it a guilty pleasure.

Bottle, 24/06/15, thanks bluus. Pours a dark ruby red with a decent, pink head. Aroma is raspberry, raspberry candy, light artificial raspberry. Taste is sweet, raspberry soda, raspberry candy, lightly artificial. Light, soda-like.

MarkoNm (1290) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUN 20, 2015
Pours a red color, topped with a very small pink(ish) head. Aroma is sweet and fruity, naturally raspberries. Taste is sweet, syrupy and fruity, easily recognized raspberries with a slight soury feel in the finish. A nice one.

I can only suppose this beer is a mistake. Its artifical sweetness is sickening and has nothing to do with lambic. Avoid. The Jugendstil artwork is pretty nice though.

goozen (3368) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2015
Bottle 0,25 ltr: Red/pink colored brew with an sour taste of raspberries. Not that sweet as the other fruitbeers of Lindemans, awesome taste due its low alcoholcontent.

37.5 cl bottle. 15 Jul 2016. Deep burgundy colour with a frothy, pale pink head, which settled to a ring and left some excellent lacing. Aroma of raspberries, vanilla and some toffee. Medium sweetness and tartness do battle over your taste buds. Medium bodied, smooth texture with some fizz and a dry finish. One for people who need more fruit in their diet.
