redlight (2325) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2006
MMM the aroma is nice, nice raspberries, but not too sweet. It pours a dark pink, red. The flavor is great! Not too sweet, not too sour, just right. Very nice.

Gusler (2652) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 29, 2006
The beer eructs for the 375ml green bottle into my snifter glass a limpid deep red with a decorous creamy light pinkish head that after its dematerialization leaves a fragile sheet of lace to enshroud the glass. Nose has a delicate sweet aroma of raspberries, with a nice tart background, a real foreshadowing of things to come; start is sweet, with a pleasant feel to the palate. Finish is sturdy in its acidity, the raspberries quite evident, and the aftertaste a tart dry that makes you pucker a bit, but what a treat, and to think at one time I disliked Lambic’s.

(Bottle) Pours a clear ruby body with a small pinkish head. Aroma of mustiness and raspberry syrup. Flavor of raspberry tartiness with a dry, carbonated mouthfeel.

Picked this up at Blue Max in Minneapolis. I think it was the last bottle they had. kind of a concord grape-ish/red color, head is off-white. aroma is dominated by raspberry juiciness and mustiness. flavor is initial raspberry, mild to moderately tart. not as pleasing as the kriek or the lambic, but still enjoyable enough.

Schroppfy (2362) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2005
Delighted to see this available (at Belmont Party Supply in Dayton). Wonderful playful red, thin and watery, some cheese and funk and some sourness, but also pretty sweet. Not bad, but not up to the standards set by the other products.

3.1
grat (432) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 15, 2005
Pink beer. Hazy chemicals and wheat. Sourness but coupled with a seriously tart chemically overtone. Wheat in the mouth, lmbic traditionals, and a large hunk of chemically berry sweetness and haze. A dissapointment compared to the straight gueuze.

21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 12, 2005
I can not believe that i had yet to have this fine brew. I believe i slammed it in less than a minute cause thats how i roll. Lots of rasberry flavor, very sweet, very good.

3.6
CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Pours a clear deep ruby with a frothy off-white head. Aroma has some sweet raspberry vinegar fruitiness. Body starts with some mild sugary malty raspberry flavor turning more tart and balanced toward the finish. A nice framboise.

3.4
pivo (2688) - GERMANY - NOV 29, 2005
Sweet juice-like aroma. Rudy color, low tight pink head. Raspberries, of course, sweet and upfront, but balanced by a light sourness. Could be more sour, but otherwise this is straightforward and quite good.

2.2
luckygirl (1222) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2005
This beer poured a hazy deep rose with a small, pink, diminishing head. The aroma is sour and dominated by raspberry (of course) with notes of basement, rosehips and maybe sawdust. The flavor started off sweet, moderately bitter and full of berry, but then changed up for a strong, unpleasant bitter finish without any of the playful lambic quality I was expecting.
