Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Enjoyed from a 13oz bottle in a stemless wine glass. The beer pours a deep ruby color, with a low pinkish-white head. The aroma shows notes of raspberry, and a touch of artificial-seeming sweetness. The palate shows fruit up front, before some nice tartness. The general flavor of the beer is far sweeter than other examples of the style, indicating the addition of sugar post-fermentation. The finish shows a nice raspberry note, and is nearly bone-dry. Overall, a pleasing, if slightly artificial, experience.

Picked this up at QFC last night in a buzzed stupor. This is pretty much not beer but it's good. Very tart and sour, almost like a mix of cider and wine. -

Not a fan of fruits beers but i must admit that those guys knows what they do! Sourness still more important than sugar in this beer, that’s why i like it.

Aroma: Framboise and caandy. Appearance: Dark red color with hazy liquid and rocky pink head. Taste: Heavy sweetness with medium sour touch.

antsaluga (140) - Kraków, POLAND - JUN 17, 2017
Bardzo ładne, kolor ciemno różowy z dużą pianą w podobnym kolorze. Aromat owocowy, nie zbyt jednak malinowy, dość podobny do krieka z lindemans. W smaku też przyjemnie, ale nic specjalnego. Kwaśne, owocowe, swieze I lekkie. Przyjemnie wypić, ale szału nie ma.

FYI, you know you’re really into gaining points for variety of beers rated when you decide to have your school order lambic for the grad student party so you can rate it but not actually have to drink an entire bottle. Framboise, or raspberry, is obviously nice, but this is basically like drinking a fruity soda or bubbly juice. It tastes like the raspberry version of sparkling apple cider, which is only something for children or pregnant women, or other such people that by preference or design cannot drink alcohol. However, it is very pink and expensive, and it was very popular with young women who don’t want double IPAs everyday. Good for gaining illusory ratebeer points, defrauding your school of funds (jk jk don’t sue me), and being adorable.
