DocLock (8602) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2015
Bottle from Whole Foods PM. Pours hazy magenta with fizzy pink head. Nose is delicious fresh raspberries, some earthy tartness. Tastes rich, fresh, on the sweet side but with that authentic raspberry tartness, and a smooth and complex finish. This is delicious.

sinte (418) - Udine, ITALY - AUG 19, 2015
Bottle 0.25L. Dark red body with a large, frothy, pink head, mostly lasting with nice lacing. Aroma is dominated by heavy sweet raspberry, with light yeasty character. Moderate-to-heavy sweet flavour, with light-to-moderate sourness. Light-to-medium body with watery texture; lively carbonation. First encounter with an unexpectedly interesting style.

tricksta_p (2099) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma of sweet and sour raspberries, candy sugar, sweetener. Flavour is heavy sweet and mildly sour. Too much sweet and far too little sour, not to my liking.

Pours deep red with a pinkish white foam. Nose - dark cherries, raspberry and faint Bret / urine. Taste is dry and tart - raspberry and sour green apples / citrus. A very nice glass

Klares dunkelrot mit wenig Schaum. Sehr viel Himbeeren, für meinen Geschmack etwas zu süß, spritzig, etwas Säure.

TorbenJensen (828) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2015
It is not surprising that this lambic both smells and tastes of raspberries. Where many lambic also have little sour taste, these are nevertheless truly fruity sweet and fizzy. It may not have as many applications as other beers have, but a cool welcome drink anyway. Garnished with a fresh raspberry is excellent. And I wonder if you can impress guests by telling that it is actually beer?

Erzengel (5644) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2015
* Old rating, best before 06. 2013. Das Bier ist süß mit Himbeeren. Die Lambic-Säure ist deutlich zu spüren, die Himbeeren sind aber etwas zu süß geraten. Süßlicher Nachgeschmack mit einem Hauch Säure.

Bill Becker (566) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Pours red with a healthy pink head of foam. Smell is of sweet and sour raspberries with a hint of Brett. Sweet raspberries dominate though I do get some tart notes and again, a hint of Brett. The 2.8% abv doesn’t get in the way at all. Lol. A very good fruit beer; not so good a Lambic.

Aroma: wild raspberry, lemonade. Looks: red/pink, pink nice head. Taste: sweet raspberry, refreshing. Light body, fizzy, abrupt finish. Makes you smile!
