2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
"400 pounds of raspberries for each 7 barrel batch" but sadly almost no aroma to speak of. Pretty cloudy looking beer with a sort of couch syrup color. Tasted like a real lambic (not the over sugared commercial kind) with some good sourness left but not really a ton of raspberry flavors. Tasted a lot like grandmaís hard candies.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewpub, fall 2013 - Pours ruby red with a strong raspberry aroma. It tastes sweet with tart raspberries. Bubbly and light to medium bodied, it has a lingering tartness. Itís good. Iím not specifically noticing he wild yeast here. The sugars may be overwhelming it, but regardless I enjoyed the beer.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Iíve had this bottle for probably 2 years now, not sure if itís one for the Cellar or not, but alas thatís where itís been.
Pours a very nice dark pinkish red, the head rises and falls like champagne.
The aroma is raspberries, thatís for sure. In some ways it smells like fake raspberry garbage that would be used to make some sort of candy, but itís also got some solid real raspberry character. I donít know, itís a little cough syrupy smelling as well.
The flavor is earthy and tart, not overly sour... but lightly so. The raspberry flavor is dominant and sweet up front but the beer finishes fairly dry. The raspberry character is more believable in the flavor than the aroma. The beer has sort of a woody, almost roughness to it thatís actually fairly charming when coupled with the big raspberry flavor.
There are far worse takes on Lambic out there than this, although itís not something I find especially intriguing. Many a perfectly good belgian brewery has done worse. Not sure why they are doing it @ 7% abv though...

(Draught) Pours a reddish brown body with a medium pinkish grey head. Aroma of raspberry, dough, and wood. Flavor of raspberry, subtle wood, and light citrus.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Pinkish champagne pour, reddish in the glass, large pinkish fizzy head, dies quickly, lacks
lacing, very super strong carbonation.   As I put my nose in the glass I am greeted with bursts of beer as the
bubbles rise to the top of the glass.   Very fizzy!   Artificial Raspberry aroma... but wasnt really expecting
anything else.   At least its pretty strong.   Raspberry syrup on the tongue.   Very fizzy, and
overcarbonated.   Not as good as some of the other candyish lambics, but its not bad.   As long as you expect
artificial flavors, then you are fine.   Moderate body and mouthfeel... *BURP*!

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
This poured a bright red to purple color with a pnksh head. Aroma was lots and lots of artificial raspberries and some strong stronf carbonation, almost burning the nose. flavor was way over carbonation, stings the tongue and overly sweet and artificial. Definitely makes me realize why some say no american beer should be called a lambic.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Fruit beers arenít easy to make. First impression I get is raspberry sweet tarts. It says 500 pounds of berries on the label but the taste is artificial. Not much of a beer presence at all. Really itís like a raspberry cider. The carbonation is way way overdone and none of it is natural from the beer making process. Faux fruit beer. I will now add an authentic German hefe to see if it makes it worth drinking. Otherwise it is a drain pour.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice raspberry nose, a little dusty yeast, perhaps lightly tart, but mostly nice and fruity. Pours bright raspberry red, huge reddish pinkish head, like almost foams out of the glass and then disappears. Weird. Flavor of fresh raspberry throughout, light fresh tartness, a little dusty yeast. Fruity, nice effervescence. Not bad, but had this at GABF and it was fucking awesome. For this reason, I will add a couple points to my bottle score to reflect this. Fuck the haters.
