Bottle at the Richmond beer festival. Nice amber looks with brief white head. Sweet fruity aroma hints at the strong sour raspberry flavours to come. Nice as an occasional sipper.

Pringao_Toribi (179) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 11, 2013
Good fruity aroma. Clear appearence, few to none foam. Average taste, too sugary. A strange sour aroma. Lambics have way better brews than this beer. For cap collectors: not interesting, brassy generic cap with a pink metal film.

roze/rood/bruin met schuimige roze kraag
aroma: rood fruit (kersen, framboos, vlierbessen)
smaken: medium zoet, licht bitter, matig zuur, sterk gefruit( kersen/framboos/lichte vlierbessen),
medium body, dun, afdronk: lekker fruitig. Lekker zelfs bij het doordrinken waarbij andere fruitbieren dan de neiging krijgen wat metalig te worden, krijgt deze dat niet !

25 cl. bottle sampled @ Kraddel does 1K tasting. Procured by Kraddel. Cheers. BBF 08/05/2014. Looks basically like dark raspberry coloured grenadine with some faintly pink head. Nose is raspberry grenadine and lots of very, very cheap white sugar raspberry jam. Smell is not bad but sadly doesn’t correspond with how it tastes which is like a glass of artificial sweeteners. The later is not good and rather nasty, there is also some faint raspberry syrup and very cheap jam but basically nasty chemical sweeteners dominate completely the taste. Very lightly syrupy and touch thin body, hint fizzy. It is nice to fill in the gaps for me but I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone but still I am certain that a lot of people are going to think that this is the best thing ever.

danielyabu (1087) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - JUL 22, 2013
average frothy offwhite head. fair lacing. fully diminishing. translucent thin reddish-purple body. aroma: raspberry and grass. if: light sweet acetic. ff: light sweet moderate acetic; average duration. palate: light body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, moderate astringent finish. azedume acetic leve balanceia muito bem o dulçor de framboesa, ligeiramente + saborosa que a de cereja, mas também não lembra cerveja, o sabor traz algo diferenciado da ultima, dando uma impressão mais natural 13 s

11.2oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours a semi hazy dark red color with a thin pink head that leave light lacing. Smells of raspberry and sugar, tastes of raspberry with a slight tartness. Mouthfeel is between light and medium with good carbonation. Overall its pretty good and slighty more sour than the Timmermans strawberry lambic I just had. Worth the $2.50 I paid but not much more.

Pours in red pale body with almost no head. Aroma is full of raspberry, syrupy. Taste is pretty muhc the same, syrup sweet with hints of sourness, no biterness at all. Body is light with high carbonation. Refreshing limonade.

Pours red with a pinkish head. Reminds me of cocktails. French Martini maybe? Bit sweet, bit sour. Otherwise a bit alcopoppy.
