3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed from a 13oz bottle in a stemless wine glass. The beer pours a deep ruby color, with a low pinkish-white head. The aroma shows notes of raspberry, and a touch of artificial-seeming sweetness. The palate shows fruit up front, before some nice tartness. The general flavor of the beer is far sweeter than other examples of the style, indicating the addition of sugar post-fermentation. The finish shows a nice raspberry note, and is nearly bone-dry. Overall, a pleasing, if slightly artificial, experience.

Bottled from AH. Dark ruby colour with pink head. Sour cherry nose. Aroma of sour cherry, raspberry. Flavour the same, but with sour cherry dominating. Very nice summer drink.

Really great taste. Taste like Boon’es Farm. Great beer to look fancy without getting trashed because of the 2.5 ABV

Strong fruity aroma. Very sweet. Lambic is in its weakest form. Totally dominated by the fruit.

This one is hard to review because as a beer it would be "bad" as it is not a beer anymore, but as a Framboise "soft" it’s actually good (well if you like sugar).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.
