ogivlado (7098) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 14, 2009
Bottled 250ml. -Clear ruby red coloured, small pink head, a bit artificial raspberry nose. Sweet raspberry taste which reminds me on PEZ candies. Acidic finish, average framboise.

Vaiz (4190) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2009
Pours clear pinkish red with a white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of artificial raspberry and disgustingly sweet. Flavor is even worse, very sweet with artificial raspberry and white sugar. Short finish. Not much resemblance to beer anymore. Maybe this is just not my style.

Bottle, CMarket, Vantaa. Pours dark red color, with a thin head. Aroma mainly of raspberry. Flavor is sweet raspberries and strawberry. Quite highly carbonated, almost like a soda. The finish is quite sour in a very pleasant kinda way. Really enjoyed this one.

Pours stupidly out of a 250ml can in a glob-glob-glob fashion that really just pissed me off. Looks like a fruity pink drink for the ages with fruity pink head, but at least said fruity pink head kind of sticks around. Smells like raspberry syrup, slight lambic fruit hints in there but theyíre hard to find with all that syrup stench going on. Taste isnít so bad, good lambic mix of raspberry and some grains. Still very sweet though.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2009
Serving date: 2009-05-18. Served in wine glass. A strange deep red color with both pink and brownish hues. A medium sized head with a slight pink nuance. Some lacings. A very simple smell, almost completely one-dimensional. Basically just aromas of artificial raspberries - raspberry candy, cheap raspberry fruit juice, bubblegum. Perhaps some notes of strawberry-like fruitiness as well. Smells more like candy than beer. The taste makes me wonder whether this Is this beer or if it is raspberry soda. Itís certainly more reminiscent of the latter. It just tastes like very sweet artificial raspberries, some notes of strawberries. Perhaps a semi-tart lemony flavor in the middle. If I really focus, I think I can detect a very faint hint of malts beneath the sweet fruits. The biggest problem is not the fruits per se, but the fact that they are really synthetic in character - no real flavor of genuine fruits. The finish is short with notes of bubblegum, some minerals and more raspberries. Light body with soda-like carbonation. The big amount of carbonation stops this one from becoming overly sugary sweet. If I would be in the mood for a sweet soda and looking for a substitute, Iíd definitely go for this one, but as a beer it falls really short. Itís to sweet, overly simplistic and quite boring after a while. Itís not that it tastes awful or anything, itís just not a good beer. A poor version of the fruit lambic. Serving type: bottle (Copy of old Beer Advocate review)

Purchased from Tanakaya in Tokyo for $4.50. I guess itís very similar to Lindemans Raspberry. Over the top raspberry aroma wows you at first. Even though sweet is a taste, I think you can smell that this will be sweet...and it is. Not as sweet as a soda, but still sweet. The first few tastes are great, then Iím not eager to drink more. The sourness is completely hidden under the sugar. Much like a raspberry soda. Pretty nice and great for people who donít like beer. At least itís another lambic rating.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2009
0.25 L bottle. Two-finger offwhite, pink-shaded head. Red colored body with a ruby hue. Sappy raspberry aroma with a faint note of almonds. Taste is citric acids, artificial sweetener and strawberry jam. Light-bodied and lively mouthfeel. A rather medicore fruit beer. Not a favorite.

250ml. can Pours a pinkish orange with a long lasting creamy head. Nose of artificial raspberry. More of the same onto the palate, very sweet, without any noticeable acidity. Framboise for the masses. Thatís what this beer is. I think my kids or my dog would love this stuff. Actually better than any sodas, but lambic! Come on...

A nose of raspberries and anis. Taste is of raspberries and mint. Very sweet, not complex, and maybe a little bit synthetic, but I absolutely love candy, so I wouldnít pass on having this one again.
