3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is heavy on raspberry, with a little earth/peat. Flavor is massively sweet and fruity, with a little tartness in the finish for balance. Not something you’d want every day, but a really enjoyable change of pace.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to tulip
Cranberry, raspberry, sugar, and a touch of apple. Pours a purply red with a thin frothy pink head. Taste is puckering raspberry with a near cloying sweetness once the sour begins to fade. Also, once the sour fade happens, you get a slight yeasty funk come through too. It’s quite thick but a bit too sugary for me.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Jeez, I can’t believe I haven’t rated this yet! I’ve had this beer many times and I try always to have some in the fridge for guests who want something "light and fruity". I really enjoy how it is genuine juicy raspberry without being corn syrupy sweet, and it has a nice subtle yeast character with a tart finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml Bottle from The Trading House, Glasgow (£5.75):
This one was a really nice, quite sweet lamib with a low alcohol content that helped it go down very easily with a great balance & strong fruity taste that was dominated by raspberries as expected. The beer wasn’t a very complex one but the taste still proved very enjoyable so this was a worry & it was a well done beer that proved highly drinkable.

Dark purple color with small purple head. Sweet raspberry aroma. Taste is sugary, some tartness, but lots of sweet raspberries. Very sweet. Not lambic at all, but drinkable, I guess.

Bottle. Pours dark red, with an airy head. Aroma is raspberry candy, with fruit peel. Full body, with soft to average carbonation. Flavour is lightly tart fruity with raspberries, some funky notes, as well as sugar and candy. Finishes off with a nice light tart fruitiness. As good as it gets for a sugary, low ABV lambic.
