Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2004
Dougs Christmas party 04. Red colour, very little head. Lots of strawberry aroma (reminded me of a pop tart). Flavour comes across as a little too artificial to me, I preferred the Kriek in this respect, but still turns out decent and drinkable. Not bad.

Orangish-red colour with a pink head. Big aroma of sweet raspberry jam. The tartness of the fruit meshes very well with the dry lambic base. Refreshing stuff that I prefer slightly to the Kriek. [Toronto Christmas Party 04]

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - DEC 19, 2004
Intens Purple-red color with some hazyness and with creamy pink head. Great fruity aromas of ripe blood-oranges, raspberry pure, mullberrys, fresh pineapple and fresh mint-leafs. Nice refreshing mouthfeel with powerfull fruit aromas. first the attack from the sour blood-oranges and all kinds of red berrys then the cremyness of fruit yogurt and sour candys that brings a smoothness in the taste. Nice clean fruityness in the afthertaste with a great sour kick and a faint touch of mint.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - DEC 18, 2004
Purplish red color, pinkish head. Bigger aroma of sweet raspberries. Cloyingly sweet raspberry flavor, too sweet without any real sourness to balance it out. Lighter to medium bodied, kind of sticky. Not bad, but I prefer some of their others to this. Thanks joey_capps.

750 ml bottle. Dark red colour with a frothy pink foamy head. Fresh straightforward raspberry aroma. Tart raspberry flavour with a slight balsamic character. Medium bodied and refreshing.

Radek Kliber (7259) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 14, 2004
Intense ruby red, some white bright head .Looks appealing. Very nice raspberry aroma, sweetened yes, but still true and that works well with lambic base. Nice sour front, followed by sweet fruits. Good balancing sweet and sour.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2004
Cloudy, dark red w/ ruby hue. Pink foam. Fresh, sweet & tart raspberry aroma w/ an underlying woodiness. Very sugary, syrupy feel. Very sweet, somewhat medicinal, raspberry flavour w/ some notes of wood & iron.

nchoward (24) - Iowa, USA - DEC 13, 2004
A pink head forms over this overly sweet rasberry drink. The initial impression was that this was going to be a fruity beer -- it sure was. It was almost too bubbly and too sweet. There was little beer taste and even that was just a little yeast. This is a great beverage for non-alcoholic cider drinkers.

jercraigs (10145) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2004
Dark red body with a moderate pink head. Sweet and tart rasperries dominate both the aroma and flavour. Has a sweet high quality raspberry jam characteristic to the it. Pleasant raspberry tartness balances it out. Average palate. I enjoyed this one a lot, though it is a bit sweet to drink on its own. Save it for dessert where it will be quite nice.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 12, 2004
(Bottled, 0.25l) Beautiful, deep red color with a pink, medium head. Very strong, sugary-sweet raspberry juice aroma. Extremely sweet and sugary raspberry flavor with a very distant hint of sourness. Medium-bodied, sugary palate with low, fizzy carbonation. A nice, good-looking lambic totally ruined with an absurdly excessive amount of sugar.
