UPDATED: APR 4, 2007 Maybe its cause this is only the 3rd fruit lambic iv ever had, but i thought this was amazin, aroma and taste are super strawberry jam, soo comferting, though u wouldnt want more than one. RERATE: This is perhaps not the beauty i thought it was as its not a lambic for one thing, but still a not bad ale.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle (250ml). In my fancy-dancy Lindeman’s Framboise flute I bought in Bruges. Poured very lively, deep murky/cloudy pink-apricot-ruby, massive foamy, creamy and rocky pinkish-white head - stayed around quite a while too. Impressive lace on sides of glass. Tiny white particles dancing near the bottom of the glass. Aroma is predictably massive strawberry preserves (with pectin!), heavy yeast, and some orange peel, a touch of malt vinegar at the edge of my perception. Taste isn’t as sweet as I was expecting, more like strawberry preserves with a good dollop of rhubarb tossed in. Very treacly and mildly fizzy in the mouth; I had a crust of sugary jam on my lips for quite a while afterward. My wife likes it ...

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Orange/red cloudy pour with some sediment. Tall foamy pinkish head. Yeasty barnyard, berry aroma. Quite sweet with just enough tart and carb to cut through. Orange accounts for about half of the flavour. Strawberries are juicey but aren’t incorporated properly. Wheat and yeast flavours are dull. Kind of clunky and thrown together. But, it’s not as horrible as your friends say it is.

I found this beer gross. It smelled good but oh man it was awful. It looked and tasted like someone blended up rotten fruit roll ups and Hoegarden and served to me!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
An unclear red beer with no head. The is very powerful sweet with strong notes of strawberries. The flavor is mainly of strawberries on a wheaty background, while the body is thin.

Muddy reddish-amber colour. One-dimensional strawberry aroma and flavour. Ultra sweet. Like jam on toast in a bottle.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
250 ml bottle, best before Nov. 2006. Very cloudy light red colour with golden highlights and a lasting forthy white head. Looks like a carbonated raspberry smoothie. Sweetened strawberry kiwi(?) aroma. Tastes like mashed strawberries that have been sitting in the fridge a bit too long, or the juice leftover from thawing frozen strawberries, (my mother picked a lot of strawberries when I was younger) with some light rotting bitterness to go with the strawberry flavour. Full and thick mouthfeel, lightly fizzy.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2005 ***WARNING*** not a Fruit Lambic!! It is what it is - a very red, very "fruit forward" strawberry flavored Wit. The sweet berry flavor is natural, and if it’s well-chilled I can get through a syrupy half bottle before it goes back in the fridge. I bet some of the ladies would appreciate this more than typical beer drinkers. Instant party favor.

Not bad. I don’t see what all the complaints are about- especially since I’ve never been a big fan of Lindeman’s Lambic.
