Sample from wife’s glass. Aroma: raspberries sugar tarts, cereals, floral. App: dark red with brown tint, small white head. Taste and palate: light body, medium carbonation, medium sweetness, light dry and astringent acidity finish. Overall: not bad. Not my favourite raspberry ale / raddler but could be worst. Didn’t enjoy the finish and aroma and taste is just ok. Pyobon (1400) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 6, 2012
(bottle) Poured a hazy reddish amber with a good dense, slightly pink head. The aroma was very pleasant: tangy, yeasty and raspberry. Lovely palate - light bodied but the wonderful fine carbonation gives a silky mouthfeel. The flavour is very well balanced: subtle candy sweetness with subtle natural raspberry flavour and subtle interesting notes from the yeast. The finish has some slight cleansing bitterness. Overall this is an excellent, well balanced, interesting and drinkable raspberry beer. It is really quite different from a traditional Belgian framboise as it is not sour, more subtle and somehow richer and more rounded. ljthiessen (1348) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 16, 2017
Can. Murky reddish-brown pour with a slightly pink-ish off-white head. Aroma is sweet and slightly tart raspberry, hints of gummy fruit candy. Taste is mostly the same, raspberry, some slight fake gummy candy notes, a little sweet and very slight tartness, finishes a little dry.

Cloudy red amber brown. Pink tan head... really cool looking. Raspberry aroma with faint matls lingering on through... Flavour is light raspberry with lingering malt... They balance out quite well with each other with a very light bitter hint hanging off my tongue. Over all finish was slightly dry with a medium body. Not bad! vadie (1256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2013
Marron foncé avec une mousse moyenne ruby/beige. L’arôme sourdiné de framboise aigre. Le goût est principalement aigre avec un peu de sucre. Un peu de framboise, mais pas trop et c’est un peu artificiel.

341ml bottle. Pours a murky pink-tinged chestnut, with a medium pinkish-white head, which lasts fairly well and leaves acceptable lacing. The strong aroma of raspberry is nicely integrated with sweet malt notes on the nose, blending well with a smooth aroma of caramel. Mild raspberry fruit up front segues nicely into some reasonably strong fruity and floral hops. The merest hint of fruitcake then gives way to strong, sweet raspberry in the body, which lingers well into the finish. I’ll admit that I am not really a huge fan of fruit beers in general, and framboise in particular I’ve found to be far too much of a sweet fruit bomb. This beer, however, I quite enjoyed. The fruit is integrated with the base beer far better than in almost any other fruit beer that I have had, and whilst sweet, it is not cloyingly so. I wouldn’t drink it often, but I certainly enjoyed it more than St Ambroise’s apricot beer. andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 29, 2012
Pours a cloudy vibrant red accompanied with a small pinkish head. Smells sour, very little malt characteristic. Tastes closest to a raspberry than any other beer I’ve had with noticeable carbonation. Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2006

341 ml bottle. Pours a hazy, ruby-red colour with a small pink head. Sweet flavour of raspberry and a little malt with a slightly dry, bitter finish. Light body, syrupy texture and lively carbonation. sulawang (1161) - - APR 19, 2012
pours cloudy brownish/red with a decent dissipating head, layer of retention, some sticky lacing, some slow-moving CO2 streams near the surface. Fruity red raspberries on the nose. Burst of 4/10 sweet aromatic red raspberries initially, transitions into 5/10-level sourness that isn’t overpowering but balanced with brown sugar malts, a silky creamy mouthfeel in the mids, finishing with a minor tartness and 6/10-level caramel sweetness & bitterness. Medium complexity, medium depth, good transitions, good carry, good drinkability. The finish ends a little rough in the mouth.
