2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rasberry juice, not much else. Looks nice, reddish/rasberry color, frothy long lasting head. Raspberry juice with a bit of an unpalatable sour finish. No alcohol detected, maybe that’s the main selling point of this drink. Medium bodied, lively carbonation.

Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours very red with a transient pink head. Aroma is fresh framboise. Near med body. Flavor is somewhat tart framboise. Yet it is still a little sweet. Perhaps a touch of oak accounts for the tart.

This is probably better than the kriek. It also has a sweet and sour battle. More sour in the beginning but a sweeter and longer lasting finish.

De couleur rouge avec un beau col blanc. Nez de fruit pas trop complexe. En bouche gout de framboise avec une légère amertume. Pas trop complexe comme bière mais elle est excellente!

Reddish pink, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is sweet with notes of raspberry, light funk, sugar. Medium to light bodied, lightly tart, largely sweet. Tasty but lacks the complexity of the better ones out there.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle - corked & caged 375 ml) Pours with a pinkish hue and a light head. Sweet raspberries in the aroma along with some hints of the oak. Not as sweet as the aroma would imply but has a light tartness mixed in as well. The oak really makes the raspberry taste more pronounced. Would be an excellent dessert beer.
