Five bucks for this bottle, and all you get for this money is a muddled blend of raspberry syrup and bland, vague malts. Didn’t notice the "sun-ripened hops", which makes sense because hops don’t ripen and all hops are grown outside anyway. Whether they are merely trotting out their old raspberry beer in a pretentious package or not I don’t know, but charging real money for this blend of bland is criminal. They better not do this with my oatmeal stout!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled draught at the Mondial de la Bière in Montreal, 2006. Dark purple-red in color, with little retained head and no lacing....nicely balanced sweet-sharp fruity nose, hints of biscuit, but very simple if not pedestrian overall....the body is tart and sour predominantly, rather thin and lacking in a real malt background but for a touch of dry cookie dough....becomes pretty jammy and syrupy towards the finish, and a nasty metallic edginess intrudes on the otherwise tolerable finish, becoming really harsh as the sample warms to cellar temp....I had trouble finishing this, what a bummer from this fine brewery.

Bu au Mondial de la Bière 06. Elle est de retour, la bière d’été de McAuslan. Beau rouge avec un bon collet. Arome de malte fruité. Goût de franboise sûre, mais assé bien. Bon pour l’été.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at Mondial 2006. Dark red body with a pink head. The aroma was definitely sour raspberries with tart candy smells. There was some fresh hay. The taste is a little tart with raspberries and some hay. A nice mild beer tat is dry and refreshing. Nothing close to a lambic, but somewhere in between that and the typical fruit beer.
