375ml bottle. Corked in 2005, still fresh and enjoyable in April 2008. Murky fruity red-black raspberry color. Delicious and delightful aroma. Over the top raspberry beer. This is the real deal. I’d drink this morning, noon, and night if I could afford to. Absolutely delicious beverage. This is an exceptional framboise, albeit a little sugary sweet.

From the bottle this poured a clear ruby body having a brownish tint to it. The modest pinkish-white head lingers none too long but the sides of the glass get well laced nonetheless. The aroma is a sweet and candy-like raspberry. The flavor tastes more like the fresh fruit, having a slightly tart twang to it. I much preferred the Kriek.

nice deep red color with tanish or pinkish head. I could smell the raspberry as soon as i opened the bottle. It has an odd bite to tyhe aroma that i can’t describe It drinks to much like a wine cooler. But none the less, i still liked it.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Pours a pink cranberry color w/ a modest, shortlived froth that reduces to a full canopy and fluffy lace. Aromas of mellow raspberry. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors are a bit dull and aged. Theres a moderate tart acidity. Defined raspberry w/ some grapes. The finish is a bit tart w/ lingering fruit.

These guys seem to miss the mark all the time. Too much like tart soda pop. Slightly syrupy. Not a fan.

im suprised that this is a fruit beer and not a lambic. looks like a lambic, does not look, taste, or smell like a fruit beer. pours a dark blood red with a small light pinkish head. smell is raspberry, a little malt, and some sweetness that i cant put my finger on. taste is sour raspberry, a touch of the malts, ends a little bitter and tart, leaves mouth on the dry side. my second try of a fruit beer, lindemans is better.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2007
Tart raspberries on the nose. Pours cloudy red with a thin white head. Tart and sweet, fruity, it starts out right but has an artificial aftertaste.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2007
bottle. poured hazy pink, with a moderate sized pink head. mildly tart raspberry syrup aroma. Taste is comparable to raspberry soda, with unnatural raspberry syrup flavor. Syrupy mouthfeel. I’m not a fan.

OK lambic. I don’t really think anyone reads all of the comments on these beers, they probably just check the percentile ratings like I do. The numbers don’t lie.

Sweet berry aromas. Very sweet and tasty but lacking any beer character. Wine coolerish.
