Aroma is sweet, full, and true to raspberry. Appearance is a nice red with a great head. Taste is sweet and full with a wild edge. It's very drinkable while very decedent. Palate is has a nice sour edge, but also dry. No lingering bad taste. Very good beer!

The flavor is on the light side, but still incredibly enjoyable and refreshing. Sweet and tart, as expected. It tastes different from most lambics due to the lack of Belgian yeast flavors. The carbonation adds a lot of depth to the palate, and for me this was one of the best things about this beer. It isnít fizzy; instead there is a light, bubbly froth that reminds me of a well-made cappuccino. Subtle and well-crafted.

Bottle: Clear mahogany red with a white head and spotty lacing. Amazing tangy aroma of rasberries, strawberries, and tartness. Delightful flavors abound with a tangy raspberry jam and a bit of dryness. So yummy!

Bottle pour into a flute. I like this just a bit less than the comparable Wisconsin Red. Iím curious if a low carbonation version of something like this would be good?

Pour is dark dark red with a soda-like head. Aroma is a whole bucket of sweet raspberries, like an awesome jam. Taste is similar, almost like a malty raspberry soda. A bit tart. Normally this wouldnít be my style, but this beer is very well executed. The taste doesnít really linger, which leaves me wanting more. Good thing this is only 4% so I can enjoy more of it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: 750 ml. bottle. It pours a darker reddish brown with a very slight head. The nose is a little musty with slight papery notes. Not much in the way of fruit. The flavor is almost sickeningly sweet. The flavor makes me think of raspberry pop tarts. Lacks depth, tartness, and complexity. Only mildly better than Lindemans. Light to medium body with lower carbonation. Nice fruit flavor, but way too sweet. I donít see the hype with this one.

Purchased this beer at SAMís club. When poured this beer has a lacy pink head that quickly disappears. The color is a rich deep red. The raspberry flavor and tartness is definitely there but you can get a slight malty flavor as well. I like that the flavor lingers on your pallet without turning becoming stale.

Bottle. Pours a darker cherry red with brown lowlights. Very little head. Aroma is a tart fruit, some slight breadiness. Taste is of tart raspberry, tangy on the tongue. Very nice for the style!
