I’m not a big fruit beer fan, but this was very tasty. What I enjoyed most was the lack of excess sweetness, the lambic tartness and the incredible freshness and flavor of the raspberries.

Bottle at GABF. Pours a hazy ruby brown with medium off white creamy head. The aroma is berry, funk, oak, bready malt. Medium body, jammy berry, oak, light booze finish, good.

Bomber bottle. Had high hopes going into this ... I love Lambics and I love raspberries. This one was all raspberry extract and just sweet. If I knew this was just a sweet raspberry fruit beer going into this, I would have rated it higher, but I was disappointed. Plus the brewer left a comment on my UNTAPPD check in ’We know we’re not in Belgium, bro.’ - well bro, then don’t say this is a Lambic on your label ...

Reddish color with a small white head - Raspberry aroma - malt body with raspberries that gives a light berry flavour,- Sweet finiah with berry - This way no lambic, just a sweet berry beer, as a beer in itself it was nice enough

GABF 2014. i appreciate that they call it lambic style.Very sweet with sugar and some berry flavor; with sweet malt in the aroma as well. Nothing like lambic at all; no sourness; no prominent yeast quality. Solid fruit beer anyway.

"crimson, pink tinged. nice looking beer. doesn’t really exhibit any true lambic qualities, to the point i toyed with adding it as a fruit beer, but i’ll let the crew decide that. a hint of tartness (from the fruit) in the nose and flavor. also a hint of earthy hops. you can tell it’s beer, as opposed to fruit soda. the raspberry isn’t too sweet (it’s an unsweetened beer) but very prevalent. a nice fruit beer, just don’t expect lambic funk or sourness, cuz it ain’t there."

From a tap at the Sierra Nevada Beercamp across America. The pour is blood red and a sweet/sugary raspberry taste.

On tap at the brewpub.

A: a very attractive red--orange color; clear with a very durable off-white head and patterned sticky lacing.

Aroma: wonderful mix of fresh strawberries, strawberry jam and bisquits.

Flavor: At first it is mildly sweet but, by mid-taste, a bit more tart, with mild bitterness in the aftertaste. Faint wood.

Feel: light+ body; Soft and smooth; medium carbonation.

O: excellent version of this Belgian style!

This is an excellent take on a lambic, deep red in color with wonderful raspberry flavor and essence. Women love it and so do men, endless beer cocktail possibilities and dessert as well!

LOVE! Great raspberry aroma, fizzy and a beautiful pinkish red pour. Had it on tap at the brewpub. Made with 480 pounds of raspberries according to the beer menu. It shows! More please.

Tap at the brewpub, fall 2013 - Pours ruby red with a strong raspberry aroma. It tastes sweet with tart raspberries. Bubbly and light to medium bodied, it has a lingering tartness. It’s good. I’m not specifically noticing he wild yeast here. The sugars may be overwhelming it, but regardless I enjoyed the beer.
