A very fruity nose and deep red colour. Middle of the road beer, sweet and fruity yet with some sourish hints also. (Bottle at Queen’s Arms, Manchester)

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright red, slightly hazy body with a frothy pink head. Super strong/sweet raspberry aroma with some sugars and malt noticeable. Super-sweet raspberry taste, a little sour, but overwhelmed with sweetness. Aftertaste still sweet and somewhat tart. An unbalanced lambic, more sweet than sour, but still a great beer! I had this beer on draught at Chez Antoinette in Washington, D.C. on 05-March-2004.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Cap Ale house, they always drive me nuts by calling the stuff Kasteel instead of St. Luis. In any case, aroma of sweet raspberries. Flavors match, just a hint of sourness at the end. Not complex, but a nice little desert beer, went well with chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottled. Cherry red, moderate purple tinged head, moderate condition. Subtle fresh raspberry aroma but way too sweet and artificial in the mouth. Quite soft and short finish but not short enough

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Thin bodied and flat flavors after an aromatic explosion that’s without depth or complexity. Cheap perfume on a Mouseketeer.

Very sweet and strong raspberry aroma. Red/pink colour, fair lace. Very sweet, some sourness, very artificial raspberry. Refreshing on a warm summer sunday afternoon. But that’s all folks!

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear strawberry colour with faint white, short lasting head. Medium to strong ripe raspberry/strawberry aroma. Light bodied with reasonaby balanced sweet sour start but after taht it falls apart. Very weak bland slightly sour middle and finish. Too much like flat stale strawberry pop for my taste.
