3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big brown odd shaped bottle. Lucious raspberry fruity aroma. Smells like many real lambics Iíve sampled. Cloudy dark looking beer with an alabaster pink head. Delicious raspberry taste amoung other ale attributes, fairly nice! For over 5%, hides the alky content very well. Enjoyable, perhaps a very nice holiday beer. Could drink this stuff all day. Fruity and friendly, a character that is lacking in most fruit beers which lack real fruit character. There is this slight hint of bitterness in the background that keeps you alert to the fact that it is an ale. Good tingle carbonation on the palate. Finish is quite good except for that average bitter ale bite building on the center of the tongue. Not bad overall and I found this to be a beer worth itís $!

pink head reminded me of Lindemanís Framboise. Some sweet malt behind lots of fruit in the nose. Nice body with a strong raspberry flavor and sweet finish.

Hazy deep rose red with a nice pink head. Obvious sweet raspberry up front with some floral and pancake notes. The taste was raspberry up front with some notes of green plant matter, almost woody. There was also some hint of black pepper. Nicely made and fairly subtle.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from the Binnyís in Orland Park, Illinois: It poured a ruby/pink body with a sizeable pinkish white head. It smelled like strawberry jam and pretty much tasted the same. Which means, I sípose, that it would be better if it was thicker and I could spread it on bread. But Iím out of bread, so I guess this is okay for today. My dick cousin Mark would like this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a reddish-amber color with a pink head. Aroma is sweet of caramel malts and raspberries mostly. Tart raspberry flavor and some sugar dominate the flavor. Better than the cherry but itís still not what I was hoping for.
