I really like this style, but this doesn’t look like a lambic in the glass. It doesn’t really smell like one, either. However, it has a nice tart raspberry flavor to it, and the history behind the brewery makes me respect it just a little more. Not my favorite lambic, but not a terrible beer, either. Cheers!

Looks, smells and taste as the name suggests. Always a nice way to end an evening with lots of beer tasted. Sweet aroma, sweet taste. Just what it promisses. (Arnhem 201404_

Great aroma of tart raspberry. Appears pretty clear rose color with small white head and spotty lacing. Taste is very fruity and fresh raspberry but lacks in tartness an d is not sour in any way. Not much complexity, but it’s delicious.

Bottle, pours dark red, with a white head, smells and tastes sweet of raspberry, not bad but Lindeman’s is better.

Bottle at home, post Craft 100 warm down, from Beermerchants 03/04/14. Hazed pinkish red with a very light crimson covering that thins and retains. Nose is sweet raspberry, straw, raspberry syrup, light vomit, lactic tang, that nasty smell (concoction) you create as a child when you mix Ribena and milk! Taste follows, less milky, sweet raspberry syrup, sugary berry fruit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet close. Meh - ish ! Just too sweet and syrupy, looks fine and feels fine on the palate, these factors alone probably inflate my score a little so have dropped overall from 10 to 9 to take this into account. Cheap and cheerless!

Bottle (250 ml). Clear red with a small white head and no lacing. Aroma of sweet raspberries, sugar, gummies and not much else. Taste is exactly the same so there’s no surprise here. Light body. Moderate carbonation. Exactly as anticipated, a cheap sweetened fruit lambic tick.

Pours nice, reddish-brown with a small head, served in a champagne glass. Aroma is sweet, raspberry jam on a fresh white bread. Taste is actually not sweet at all, raspberry flavours are still strong though. It has a dry finish, lasts even for a couple of minutes. Very nice framboise.

Efterrätt. Hallonbåtar intryckt i ett glass av mums. Vacker röd färg. Skummet dog fort

En fröjd för munnen men ljuvlig hallonbåtar. Doftar sommar. Helt klart lördags godis på burk
