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.

Brownish magenta in color... Aroma of fresh raspberry jam, syrup... Flavor is intensely sweet raspberry jam up front, funk and blue cheese notes come through on the palate, fairly tart finish... Oak, vanilla... Really nice, but definitely not for everyone

Bit of a reddish brown color. Big beautiful raspberry aroma, some slightly funky smell here too that I didnít really get from the other fruit beers by then. Taste is a fantastic raspberry jam, some sour, but actually less tart than I had expected. I could drink this every day.

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Rich sweet raspberry, sweet malts, faint acidity, and a long fruity rich finish. Damn good.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a fairly murky dark amber color with tan head. Huge fruity nose, tons of raspberry aroma, juicy, framboise like sweetness, tart aroma. Flavor is intense raspberry juice, not artificial, refreshing tartness in the back and more raspberry lingers in the finish. A lot of raspberry packed into this.

Received in a trade from BVery -- This is easily the best fruit beer I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. This is just a wow in a bottle. Very fruity and juicy.

750 ml bottle shared by Jon. Thanks man! Pours a translucent color of, well, raspberries. Poofy bubbles make up the thin head of this beautiful glass of beer. Aroma is, again, raspberries, but really fresh ones. Amazing - this is beer? Flavor is deliciously sweet raspberries, not much else to report. I am reminded of the complexity of pie. All around amazing flavors, crisp finish. Delicious. From notes 1/23/10 (Geist Dark Lord tasting)
