Pours a murky purple brown color, a grayish purple head. Aroma is super fruity, smells like raspberry sorbet and rapberry jam. Taste is nice raspberry, kinda like jam, has the seedy taste quality to it, a bit thin palate, needs a little extra punch, but overall its pretty good. dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2005
Almost no head on a reddish body. The taste is not too sweet nor too bitter. I has a good balance between the hops and malt on one hand, and the fruits on the other. Excellent as dessert beer or apéritif. Very pleasant experience. wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2004
Tasted in NYC. Tasted at brewtopia 04. Aroma is an intense candy sweetness. Appearance is candy apple red, clear with a nice white head. Taste starts out sweet but finishes with a slight fermented fruit flavour. slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2006
750ml bottle, right on the mark w/ "best before" date. Odd, off aroma upon opening. Huge, lacy head. Looks like raspberry bullshit to me, more brown than red or pink, but hey this isn’t a lambic. Taste is watered down (lake water) but finishes nicely. Just never tasted right to me, not enough to justify purchasing it again. ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Bottle at Novare Res.
Pours a deep red, with hints of amber coloring too. Head vanishes quickly. Aroma bites up front with tart raspberries. Flavor is neat, here’s what this does, the raspberries balanced with the malt in this beer make it almost like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It’s very carbonated, and very easy to enjoy, but a little peculiar. I like this a lot.

bottled. deep red in colour and topped off with a frothy white head. There is a nice full raspberriness to the drink that avoids to trappings of fruit beers that come in floris or chapeau. Has more in common with Amsterdam really, but with a more distinctive beer body and less of a cola mouthfeel. Gets sweeter the further you go, but it’s not overwhelmingly so. Pretty Good!

Deep red color and large white head. Strong aroma of fresh raspberries. I couldn’t help but pick up some mustard aroma and flavors, not sure what was going on there. Bit of lambic like sourness, malty backing. I liked it but will likely be reevaluating this. stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2012
bottle. pours a ruby/brown with pinkish/white head. Artificial raspberry in the aroma. Bit funky. Light, watery, fizzy, highly carbonated, mildly fruity. The raspberry is quite mild, more of a white wine/champagne taste. I went back and forth on this, but overall a letdown. Quite dry. AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2008
Dark reddish brown in color. Very nice head, about an inch and a half, on the pour. Smell is raspberries, some vinous qualities, and some acidic notes as well.UNCCTF (588) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - MAR 12, 2004
It has a good mouthfeel. But there is a slight metallic flavor in the taste. Some very weak raspberry and hints of cherries. If it was bigger and more tart it would be better. This comes across very watered down.
Poured a deep red with a fluffy off-white head. This was way more like a beer than Lindemans or Boon, and it wasn't nearly as enjoyable. The flavoring came off as totally artificial.
