IrishBoy (3824) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 20, 2013
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?

Een lekker verfrissend frambozenbier, zoals het hoort te zijn. Niets wereldschokkends, maar gewoon goed.

Winey, jammy raspberry aroma. Clear, rose’ color. Sweet, cheap, not authentic. On tap, Brass Tap, Tallahassee.

Nicely done. Good balance with citrus lambic bretta. Pours pinkish red with pinkish head and lacing. Light sour and sweet finish. Bottle drank on Rehoboth beach.

You have to suspend your normal ideas of beer when you taste these fruit lambics. Just as you can’t compare a fruit tea to an Earl Grey or an Assam, I think you have to treat these as a completely separate type of drink. On which basis, this is good. The sweet and sour balance out really well on the taste, the raspberries dominate the nose, it has a pleasing palate and carbonation, and the red / brown colour is attractive. What’s not to like. Beer, but not as we know it.

sharkydodson (194) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - JUL 19, 2014
the aroma is fruity, with shades of raspberry and raspberry seeds... the taste is sweet and sour with notes of raspberry, candy and yeast... aftertaste is sweet and, a little bit, dry...

MarcoDL (2146) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2014
Decent fruit beer. Has some real raspberry I think, but it’s also too sweet. And the lambic is hard to detect.

kevnic2008 (7893) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUL 3, 2014
Pours hazy amber color. Aroma and taste are both sweet raspberries. Sweet finish.

Burgers (313) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 30, 2014
Slightly hazy red with fair white head. Aroma of raspberries and wheat. Taste slightly sour but some sweetness. Lively carbonation. Finish slightly sour.

StoutHead (621) - DENMARK - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy red color with a one-finger white head. Aroma of malt and raspberries. Taste is of malt and bread but primarily of bubbly raspberries. Lively carbonation. Starts out sweet but becomes tart after a moment. Not (too) much though. Very crisp and a bit dry - a bit like drinking a kid-friendly fruit-champagne. Very good.

Aroma is raspberries, fruit and wine qualities. The flavor is raspberries, fruit, high carbonation, mild vinous qualities and a very tart finish.
