25cl bottle from Country Club Liquors. Nose is raspberries, with slight hints of yeast and sweetness. Lightly hazy purple/red with a medium pink head. Flavor is fruity berries, sugar, with only the tiniest hint of tart. Lambic?

Lovely tasty and refreshing stuff!.
Red/pink color with an fine head. Good intensity in the aroma. Quite nice body for a 4% beer. Mellow fine sweetness and a fine balanced tartness. Mild mellow nice raspberry flavor also. Avery nice beer and easy to recommend.

Pours a reddish color. I want to call it strawberry color, but it is raspberry, so we’ll go with that. Cloudy, pretty good carbonation. About one finger white head. Medium retention, decent lacing. Neat little foil wrapped bottle is cool.

Aroma is fresh raspberries, And maybe yeast. That’s about all. Smells really nice. Smells like fresh raspberries, not artificial.

Taste is same. Fresh raspberries, maybe some yeast. It is sweet and sour and bitter a little, but aren’t fresh raspberries?

Mouthfeel is light bodied. Tart,bitter, finishes clean and nothing lingering. Maybe raspberry preserves or something sweet and raspbeery

Overall, I like this. Light and sweet. Almost a dessert beer unto itself. I wonder if this is what to alcopops are modeled after? Anyhoo, yes I would buy this again, and I would probably recommend this. This bottle has born on date of 8-26-14, so this is two years out of date. I dunno howmuchnthart would affect the flavor, but if it’s too much better, I don’t think I could contain myself.

jimmydolain (3) - IRELAND - AUG 19, 2016 does not count
Lovely, creamy mouthfeel. Sweetness is there but has a dry finish bit a touch of tart bitterness which is what makes this a very good beer. Far better than many of it’s peers

Rask0lnikov (751) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 5, 2016
Pale red colour. Thin white line of froth on top. Sweetness, raspberries in the aroma. Sweetness and hints of raspberries in the taste. Rather sweet finish. Hints of raspberry jam in the aftertaste. Light bodied, rather light bodied, too sweet beer. Does not have a character of a lambic.

Dn smager som lambic-øl plejer. Meget syrlig og med en hvis smag af frugt. Det er ikke lykkedes mig at drikke en hel endnu, men har brugt den her til at lave æblegrød med, og lavede en "kantrol"-portion. Helt klart bedst med lambic....

Shared bottle at Maakun’s, thanks! Almost clear orangey pink, with offwhite greyish head. Sweet raspberry lemonade syrup, strawberries aswell, cardboard, fruittea. Sugar sweet with light lambiccy sour ending. Near medium bodied, fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice for the candy sweet offerings.
