3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I thought that I had already had this one…
Pours a dark raspberry, light ruby with a collapsing off-white head // very quickly gone.
Smell is huge raspberry jam, quite lovely actually,… like opening a pot of no-brand raspberry jam from the supermarket.
Taste is raspberry jam, strawberry jam, grenadine, syrup, additives, white sugar, no over, dominating flavours of artificial sweeteners :) except a small touch in the back. This tastes like lollipops :)
Jammy, syrup, light grains body.
This is like drinking a glass of raspberry jam, I like it. Although I am a bit sad that the label says this is “brewed with century old spontaneously fermented lambic slowly aged on oaken barrels.” Because as far as I know this is not aged on oaken barrels, complete lie & the taste of this is so, so, so extremely far removed from lambic and because of the popularity of beers like this forms a wrong idea of what lambic’s are with the public. I used to think that lambic were this nonsense… One can also debate whether or not what they make & use in this can be classified as lambic. Bring on the diabetes. Still the back of the label makes me a bit sad…
(25 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from a Carrefour in Brussels. No BBF)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear ruby red colour, pinkish white head. Aroma of raspberry, metallic, very fruity, sweet, sweetener and iron. Sweet flavour, raspberry fruit, raspberry syrup, sweetener, metallic note. Bit thin. Sweet finish, raspberry syrup, raspberry lemonade.
Very sweet, but hey, what’s to be expected. Not really my cup of tea, but enjoyable, better than I expected it to be. Pity of the iron though.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
25cl bottle from El Corte Inglés, Santa Cruz de Tenerife (shared by Alexcg - thanks!).
Pours almost clean read with a white to pink head. Intense raspberry aroma, feel a bit artificial, a bit like raspberry soda. Lightly sour and quite sweet with a good fruitiness. Not the same balance and dryness as the nicer fruit lambics, but still quite drinkable and somewhat refreshing.

Aroma: Sugar, raspberry, and candy-like aromas dominate.
Appearance: Hazy red with a white head.
Taste: Raspberry jolly-ranchers (very sweet), with a mild tartness.
Palate: Light bodied, thin, with a fizzy carbonation.
Way too sweet. Very similar to those bottled Scandinavian long drinks.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
02/12 0.25 l bottle from a Carrefour in Madrid. It poured clear deep red body with medium to bigger pink head. Raspberry aroma, sourish, more than domestic or wild strawberries with different sourness from a lambic. Flavor was following it, slightly sour and slightly sweet, berries, some lambic notes, pleasant. Medium bodied with long sweetish fruity finish. Not a bad fruit beer although I prefer any regular Belgian ale over this...
