2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottle): Pours a red amber with pinkish head. Lots of raspberry sweetness on the nose. A sickly, sugary raspberry taste with tartness lingering on the finish. Not a fan.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown rose color with white head. Raspberry juice aroma.
Does not have the wonderful sourness of a special Lambic and the flavor is more sparkling apple juice than the complexity of a Cantillon.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This one poured a bright light red/pinkish color with a pinkish head. Aroma was of raspberry candy, artificially sweetened raspberry jelly and nothing really. Flavor was not tart or funky at all, really pretty much sugary raspberry alcapop.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Purchased at the Hunger Mountain Coop in Montpelier, VT. Pours a red-amber colour with a slight pink frothy head and decent creamy lace. Grainy nose (kind of weird) with the raspberries and soft yeast. Medium-bodied with just a liitle tart. The taste is a little better with some mild sourness and good sweet raspberry juices. This is a great fruit lambic with a low alcohol that is much better than most of this style (that are too sweet to compensate for the low alcohol).

Bottle from Carrefour, Chania. Pours pinkish/red with a tiny white head. Aroma is very sweet, raspberry sweets. Taste is sweet, with a light sour raspberry edge, easy drinkable, sticky mouthfeel. Enjoyable, have tasted worse.

Red pour, a pinkish head. Aroma of raspberry jam and cherries. Sweet flavor, lots of raspberry jam, a hint of tartness sneaks around but this is a sweet beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Poured pinkish-amber with a sticky pink-tinted head. The aroma picked up sweet and tart raspberry notes paired with light dank wheaty notes and light funk.. quite clean overall, and the fruit really didn’t pop. The flavor found tart raspberries and oak on the tip of the tongue, with sweeter berry dust and lemon rind behind.. very dry finish with dusty berries and scratchy oak. Light-bodied and moderately sour/tart on the palate.. a bit watery on the middle.. drinkable and accessible for the style, but I needed/wanted more substance.

11.2 ounce brown bottle from binney’s - chicago. Pours a deep, clear redish amber color with fadinbg white head. Intense raspberry syrup aroma.
Light body with mouthfeel from carbonation. Slightly sweet malty flavor balance augmented by semi-sweet raspberry syrup character. Slight tartness offests forceful fruitiness. Too sweet for more than one.
