Bart (2938) - Brussels, - OCT 28, 2007
Clear light red orange coloured beer with some average carbonation and a small white head. Sweet raspberry fruity aroma, with a slightly more astringent fruit stone touch. Medium sweet palate. Finish is very sweet, fruity notes and a stranger raspberry touch, slightly wattery.

Vells (899) - Riga, LATVIA - APR 13, 2015
Feels most balanced of Timmermans fruit lambic session. Decent rasberry aroma - stays in taste, overall solid sweetness with light tartness, bit too bubbly and watery, yet well balanced and refreshing. Nice

Alengrin (2939) - BELGIUM - FEB 12, 2015
Typical sweet framboise since 1986; rating from old notes and I do not intend to retaste this. This was a deep purplish red beer under an off-pink head and an aroma and flavour totally dominated by raspberry jam and grenadine, with a lemony acidic touch but lots of cloying sugar too; some faint woodiness dries it a bit in the end, but it remains a sugary ’bastardisation’ of actual fruit lambic and therefore not for my taste.

Sintetic aroma! Looks like lemonade very clear and intense red. Hint of lambic sour but overall sweet and refreshing.

Dr_Fellini (741) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a beautiful ruby red color with a small off white pinkish head. Aroma is quite sweet, berries, mild tartness. A bit more tart in the flavor with a sweet berry tart finish. Decent beer. Would prefer a bit more tart and a bit less sweet.
