The head is med., body dark red. It smells very sweet-rasberry, sugary. The taste is sweet, sugary, rasberry, far to sweet, and artificial. Not my taste.

Delicious and incredibly fruity! Almost more like a hard cider than anything.

degbert (1201) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark purple-red with a sticky, lacy, fine-grained pink-purple head. Powerful raspberry nose; it hit me when I opened the bottle like a wave, and I can smell it all the way across the desk. Really mouth-watering. Tart up front, with the fruit predominant; not very sour, and a slight candied edge -- it’s not terribly complex, but it’s refreshing and tasty. A slight seedy bitterness on the finish, along with a lactic creaminess. I appreciate the use of stevia. Good.

Jamedra (564) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 25, 2014
Láhev 250 ml. Aroma je velmi příjemné, malinové. Pěna je světle růžová, nízká, jemná a nedržící. Barva samotného piva je vínová. Chuť je velmi sladká s výrazné kyselým malinovým jádrem, finiš je nehořký, ovocný a držící. V ústech pivo působí plné, má střední říz a je poměrně dobře pitelné. Jedná se o dobrý ovocný lambic.

martjoobolut (959) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 17, 2014
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 (320) - 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 (1462) - 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 (2464) - 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
