0,25L bottle, BB 03.2016. Pours deep red with pink head. The head stays. Aroma is very sweet, some sourness and intense raspberry juice. Flavor is very sweet with some sourness, syrupy, soapy, metallic notes. Carbonation is high. Overall: not really good, too sweet and flavor feels artificial.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Raspberry beer with some metal in the taste. Tastes a tad artificial, but not in a bad way - reminds me of how raspberry candy was in the late 90s. I struggle to call this beer, though.

DrunkSanta410 (284) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Tap at Hay Merchant. Pours a dark dark red. Aroma is solid raspberries, tart, sweet. Taste is very raspberry, semi sweet and tart. Smooth, like fruit juice. Smooth palate, medium carbonation. Great fruit beer, not sure why it’s rated so low.

zgaier (1413) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark red with a pink head and sweet raspberry aroma. Taste is very sweet, full of raspberries and fruits into the sweet, long, raspberry finish. Very sweet brew with tons of raspberry throughout

Alengrin (2065) - BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2014
Very artificial framboise based on Van Honsebrouck’s Western Flemish lambic, sugared and sweetened, purple red, grenadine, elderberry syrup, that horrible lemonade-like ascorbic acid again and cloyingly sweet finish with just a bit of tartness, but not enough to balance out the syrupy sweetness. These fruit beers surely have an audience, but I never belonged to it.

Très fruitée, pe un peux trop, rafraîchissante, mais pas super dur pour une lambic

Lemke10 (805) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Pours a deep red color with a slight pink head. The aroma is full of sweet raspberry. The flavor is sweet and slightly tart. A very well made lambic.

martinrumsam (535) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle. Intense mid red with pink foamy head. All raspberry aroma with a vinegary whiff. Massive sweet raspberry taste with classic lambic sourness kicking in. Lots of bubbles. No thanks.

Een lekker biertje met een verfrissende smaak, ideaal voor op warme zomerdagen te drinken.

Kauge (174) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle from Nõmme Comarket (€ 3,29), July 2014. Pours a very deep, almost brownish red with a pinkish white head that retains nicely, leaving some lacing. Nose is good home-made raspberry jam and not much else. Taste is very, and I mean very sweet with strong sourness to follow. Medium body and carbonation. Sticky mouthfeel. Tart, sugary finish. Must have a huge sweet tooth to enjoy this. Reminds me of all the flavoured syrupy ciders and lemonades that I hate.
