pours cloudy almost dirty dark ruby purplish with a small pink-purple head, some retention and lacing. sweet and lightly tart raspberries, raspberry jam, other berries, light citric notes, grass and herbs, underlying lambic - i.e. overshadowed by raspberry sweetness - still some citric and acetic ntoes. average carbonation, light to medium body - juicy, sweet, grassy and very lightly tart finish. yes, like drinking raspberry juice with a dash of lambic. maybe the most interesting of their sweet fruit lambic. forget about mimosas sundar morning.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (250 ml). Ruby red with a small persistent pink head and good lacing. Aroma is of candy sweetness, raspberries and... nothing else. Taste is really sweet (candy sweetness) with raspberries and very light tartness. Light body. Good carbonation. This is fun too drink, like a carbonated raspberry juice but it’s hard to tell this is a beer. Too sweet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy pinkish amber with a light pink fading head. The aroma is like slightly boozy candy children’s red cough medicine. The flavor is candy sweet with ample carbonation and big berry fruitiness. Obviously primarily raspberry and cherry tones, with a certain malty darkness underneath. It’s not just fruit but its hard to describe. But it is mostly sugary candy sweet framboise.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light red w/ a big frothy head. Aroma of raspberry. Tastes like crisp cranberry juice, but in a nice way nicely balanced w/ alcohol. Slightly too sweet for me. This framboise tastes cleaner than lindemans and doesn’t give me the syrupy added flavoring heart burn.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle that’s been sitting around for a few years, I suspect. Cork barely pops, but it’s still reasonably carbonated. Nose is fairly dry raspberry, yet somehow still fake. Overwhelming raspberry juice in the mouth, fairly sweet. No lambiac sourness. Finishes a bit drier, which is welcome. Overall, a bit too intense on the raspberry.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear red colour, pink head. Aroma of raspberries, candy, muesli mix, red fruits and the coloured fruit sprinkles some Dutch people put on their bread -vruchtenhagelslag-. Sweet flavour, sweetener, red fruits, red fruits candy, jelly fruit candy. Sweet fruity finish, jelly fruit candy, raspberry.
Too sweet for me, but not unenjoyable on a hot day (like today).

Bottle many thanks to Countbeer. Clear ruby color with small pinkish head. strong raspberry aroma. Very sweet raspberry soda, very light tartness in finish. Tastes, like update raspberry soda from my grandmother. Little bit to much on sweet side, but still enjoyable.

I thought this was really good. Really nice raspberry jam aromas and favors, intense raspberry on the palate. Good balance of sweet and sour. Nice fruit beer.
