3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341 ml bottle - pours a muddy brown with red highlights and a pinkish head. Aroma is all framboises, but REAL raspberries, not extract. It has that slight earthiness that actual raspberry juice has. The flavour is strange.....the raspberry is less potent than in the aroma. There is also some hop presence, but that is kind of overshadowed by the raspberry. Abrupt finish. A good fruit beer, certainly one of the better ones I’ve tasted.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A fruity aroma in a mildly purple colour, nice soapy head, fresh from Montreal. A blond like characteristic, injected with the raspberry puree, not quite natural berries added right in but also not too synthetic. Nicve summer beverage.

nice aroma of raspberry, but its also got some maltiness in there. Wow, the raspberry stick in the flavour but i can still tatse the beer. AMazing balance between both beer and fruit flvaours i can pick ou the malt and the fruit, and they mingle very well together. very well done.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber in colour, long lasting off-white coloured head, good lacing. The aroma is of sweet raspberry jam, light grainy malts show up. The flavour is of very fresh raspberries, icing sugar, fruity (plums and grapes). Very sweet mouthfeel, medium/light body, medium carbonation. Finishes quite long, prickly carbonation, lots of sweet raspberries. This isn’t all that bad but I’m not sure if its worth the $6 that they charge for it.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2007 A nice package and not a whole lot of raspberries and yes it was a unique summer ( okay fall ) time treat. Page 290 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 199 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
341 mL bottle from La Trappe à Fromage, served at cellar temp from a tulip glass. FE 23/07
App.: clear red-pink with brown hues (like oxidized cranberry juice), decent pinkish-tan head.
Aroma: fresh, juicy raspberries, raspberry jam, some resinous and piney hops, peppery, kinda sharp and green.
Palate: thick and syrupy, fine, soft carbonation.
Flav.: raspberry jam, tart, fresh raspberries, a bit metallic, a touch bitter, raspberry aftertaste, a touch of malt (hints of caramel, and roasted characters).
Not spectacular, but decent beer for $3.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[bottle] Pours reddish brown color, with a short-lived pink head. Subtle fruit aroma. Tart, mildly acidic raspberry flavors mix with a somewhat weak malt background. Finish is very dry, with a touch of woodiness. Not really something I’d pick up again, even if it comes in a fancy box.
