Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine on 3/9/12. Pours deep red with a thin pink head. Aroma of raspberries and sweetness; slightly vinous. Sweet raspberry flavor with mild tartness. Wouldn’t go so far as to call it Kool-aid, but pretty sweet.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Freshcraft. Clear ruby red with a light pink head. Smells like cherry cough syrup and raspberry purée. Smooth texture..almost too smooth, very faint bubbliness. Sticky sweet syrup like tones of raspberries and light tart cherries. All very syrupy sweet, and not very deep or complex. It is, however, very delicious as a dessert, or could be awesome with cake. Rich and fruity.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a tulip. Bottled on 100526, so May 26th, 2010 I presume.
4.0 A: Plum color. Three fingers of frothy pink head. Retention is good with plenty of lacing left behind.
3.5 S: Immense raspberry aroma, but it is too sweet to come off as natural. Rather, the raspberry takes on a synthetic, artificial vibe like in the liquid centered hard candies. Far below that there is a mild mustiness and a very subtle tartness. Still, it smells good.
4.0 T: Like the peche, the taste is about as sweet as it gets without getting cloying/annoying. Again, raspberry liquid filled hard candy with watermelon flavored lollipops. Mild mustiness. Very, very light tartness.
4.5 M: Lighter body. Good amounts of super spritzy carbonation. Incredibly smooth.
4.0 D: I have a reduced respect for backsweetened fruit lambics, but I think they are generally really tasty. They remind me of sparkling grape juice that I loved drinking during Thanksgiving as a kid (still love it). Anyway, this hits the head as a raspberry soda type drink with a touch of real lambic character. Infinitely quaffable.
Disclaimer: I rate backsweetened lambics to the style of sparkling fruit juice, not actual lambics.
Serving type: bottle
