Bottle. Poured a clear cranberry in color with a medium sized light pink head that was mostly lasting and had excellent lacing. The aroma was of course heavy with the scent of raspberry’s, light bread malts and a sweet yeast. It tasted sweet a loaded with raspberry at first then moved to sweet-sour raspberry flavor at the end with the flavor only staying on the tastebuds a short time. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a lively carbonation. Overall a nice and refreshing Lambic.

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.

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...

Decent fruit beer. Has some real raspberry I think, but it’s also too sweet. And the lambic is hard to detect.

StoutHead (608) - 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.

wlajwl (3772) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Aroma is raspberries, fruit and wine qualities. The flavor is raspberries, fruit, high carbonation, mild vinous qualities and a very tart finish.

VinegarStroke (267) - Napa, California, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle: clear, red to salmon, light head and light lace. Massive berry lift. Very clean and fresh. Slightly bready, toast. Off dry, moderate level of sourness and not bitter. Fresh, medium length, fine acid driven palate. Lacks a little depth. Just light and refreshing.

Clear red beer, tidy pale pink head. Palate is light and dry and a little crispy. Sweet and sour raspberry, dry. That’s about it. Dry finish. Good fruits but dry.

Extrem fruchtiger Geruch nach Erd- und Himbeere. Im Antrunk trocken, nur ein Hauch von süß. Tänzelnde Brettsaromen.
