Very, very tasty. Seems almost like it's not beer though, and that scares me. Great for a lady too!

Wow, I'm always suprised how sweet and 'fake' tasting this beer is and each and every time its more of a farse than the last. If making beer were about adding 'flavour' at bottling to inoffensive beer these folks would be the best. But the making of lambic unfortunately requires more patience and more craft than this. These Lindemans beers are very obviously aimed at the sweet tooths of Britain and the US and would be laughed completely out of the beer bars of Brussels. In fact you would be as hard-pressed to find it there as you would Zima at a good beer bar in the US. Please don't think this syrupy soda-pop is anything like the way it should be.

Solid fruity taste throughout, not as tart tasting as the Casis, and not as good as the Peche

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2004 Raspberry fermented lambic ale, excellent production and very enjoyable. May be too sweet for some.

A fine brew, with a huge fruity taste up front, with the typical lambic tartness following. This compares well to a Framboise Boon, which is nearly identical in terms of style and price. This is less tart than Framboise Boon, and the fruit is more profound. Choosing between the two is of course a matter of preference. Those who love the lambic tartness will find Boon more appealing. For those who like to emphasize the fruit tones, this would be the better choice. They're both fine wallet-draining brews, no doubt.

I was thoroughly impressed with this, the first lambic i have tried. Awesome raspberry tartness. Maybe a little too carbonated for my liking.

My first lambic, and I like it. Man, is it sweet and tart though! But in a good way. Hardly tastes like a beer, but I will be having this one again.

This beer is called 'the leg-spreader' in Belgium, and its easy to see why - the fruitiness and easy of drinkability make this a great favorite with the ladies. It is also a guilty pleasure of 'men's men' who love it too, but who don't want to admit in public. Why are you looking at me like that?
