hohops (1162) - Kent, - MAY 11, 2014
Keg. Appearance- light pinky red, one finger white head which persists. Aroma- fruity, zest hints, strawberry dominates though. Taste- lots of strawberry, sugary sweetness, a little cloying. A bit too much sweetness but still very drinkable.

superspak (6232) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - DEC 2, 2017
375 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly crystal clear deep ruby red/amber/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light pink head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big juicy/tart/tangy raspberries, cherry, plum, blackberry, red apple, red grape, fruit jam/skin/seeds, hay, grass, wheat, bread, candi sugar, light pepper/funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of raspberries, fruity yeast, and malt/sugar sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big juicy/tart/tangy raspberries, cherry, plum, blackberry, red apple, red grape, fruit jam/skin/seeds, hay, grass, wheat, bread, candi sugar, light pepper/funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tart/sourness, fruit tang, and light yeast spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of sour/tart/tangy raspberries, cherry, plum, blackberry, red apple, red grape, fruit jam/skin/seeds, hay, grass, wheat, bread, candi sugar, light pepper/funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of raspberries, fruity yeast, and malt/sugar sweetness; with an awesome malt/sour/tart/tangy fruit balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Touch of puckering sourness. Light-moderate increasing dryness from sour/tart/tangy fruit. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/acidic/tangy/tannic, and slightly slick/syrupy balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 2.8%. Overall this is an outstanding sweetened fruit lambic! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of raspberries, fruity yeast, and malt/sugar sweetness; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly acidic/tangy/drying finish. Tons of authentic jammy raspberry fruit presence with balanced sweetness. Not as funky on the yeast as expected, but still highly enjoyable. A lot more acidity from the fruit, leading to a drier finish than other sweetened lambics I've had.

shrubber85 (11710) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 8, 2017
Bottle. Raspberry, sour milk, malt, light vinegar, and musty hay aroma. Reddish brown with minimal head. Moderately sweet raspberry, malt, lightly sour vinegar/lactic acid, and mildly bitter hay flavor. Good body. Like the other sweetened fruit lambics.

Ysok02 (1920) - Mons, BELGIUM - JUL 29, 2017
Robe rubis dense, mousse crémeuse, mais peu persistante. Nez sur la framboise, une note lactée, un coté yaourt. Bouche à l’attaque fruitée, acidulée, équilibrée, agréable et ronde, avec une finale fruitée. La plus agréable de toute celles goûtées ce soir.

Not bad, you can at least say it is refreshing on a hot, humid summer day. The stevia imparts an artificial aftertaste that is not exactly pleasing. Sweet and sour elements are there as expected. Definitely not a re-buy at relatively expensive price point.

stchloe (1118) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 17, 2017
Very nice lambic, effervescent raspberry aroma, and nice carbonation really brings out raspberry flavor without being saccharine.

02-07-17 // bottle. Pours a deep red beer with a small white head. Sweet rasperry juice, like rasperry candies from my childhood. Light lambic acidity.

Gift from Miguel. From Aldi. In Teku glass. After dinner. Not unpleasant, in fact nice. But doesnt seem a beer at all, more like a medicine for kids, like a new apiretal
