The fact that they have the word "lambic" on the label makes me want to trash this beer. However, I’ll refrain myself as it’s certainly not offensive. Nice and fruity, relatively dry. Just a bit medicinal at the end. Decent, but wouldn’t purchase. brainlair (236) - Maryland, USA - MAY 31, 2010
22oz bottle, courtesy of erice. Pours a hazy orange amber with some crap floating around in the bottom. Very fruity nose, decent amount of tart raspberries, cherry, and pineapple. Unfortunately it’s downhill from there, lots of artificial sweetener in the flavor, with cherry peel and raspberry. Slightly bitter and sweet finish.

Hazy orange brown pour. Thin white head. Aroma dominated by raspberries - fresh and slightly tannic. Flavor is mostly dry with a some sweetness. I was expecting it to be very syrupy so that was a nice surprise. Raspberry is most prominent of the fruits. Bitter, slightly alcoholic finish. Fruit lingers in the back of the throat. coldbrewky (1731) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Stolen from the Brigs rate since it is so apt "This beer looked interesting on the shelf but is a prime example of how something that sounds good does not always turn out." This was a muddled mess of off tastes that just made the whole thing a drain pour. From nose to the drain it was awful. Brigadier (3780) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2010

This beer looked interesting on the shelf but is a prime example of how something that sounds good does not always turn out. In this case the combination of ingredients creates some weird super sweet liquid that reminds me of nutrasweet or other artificial flavorings. Taken individually the additional fruits would make a good beer. Put together they are simply too much.
Aroma / Appearance - The carbonated body is the color of polished copper. A stark white head fills the space above the glass so much that it takes almost five minutes to settle down. Cherry pie filling, raspberry jam, and citrus create the sensation of smelling various jars of Smuckers jam. If I didn’t know any better I’d swear this was a smoothie rather than a beer.
Flavor / Palate - Overly carbonated Jolly Ranchers of all flavors ruin what could have been a fun experience. It then transitions to an intense raspberry taste before finishing dry and wheaty. A background tartness like orange peels makes this even more confusing. This is all over the place with little focus. If this did not try to do so much it would be a much better beer.
Amber pour. Clear. Very strong raspberry, cherry and other fruits taste. Texture is almost juicy. Interesting ale, but not sure if I’d buy it again. Rated 10/31/08

Bottle sample at a tasting. Pours clear amber with a medium white head. Malty nose with notes of tropical fruit, raspberry and grain. Malty and syrupy flavor with plenty of cherry and raspberry bursting through before a syrupy finish. BeerandBlues2 (14018) - Escondido, California, USA - FEB 6, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear gold with a fizzy white head, good retention and fair lacing. Aroma is raspberry, cherry, and passion fruit dominant with some light grainy malt. Flavor is merely identical to the aroma, with a more malt focus. Light body, creamy texture, and average carbonation. deyholla (12588) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Bottle. Poured a clear gold with a slight off-white head. Aroma has an awkward note of tofu, grains and fruits. Flavor has notes of cherry, and raspberries, with a bit of an awkward tartness, seaweed flavor and medicinal qualities. Definitely misses the mark for me LilBeerDoctor (4231) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2010
22 oz. gusher that pours a cloudy orange with a light pink head and lots of floating particles. Aroma of raspberry and passion fruit juice. Flavor of those light fruits plus wheaty malt. Medicinal notes, with a strong alcohol presence. I generally enjoy fruit beers, but this was too watered down in terms of real fruit flavor, too strong, and the fruit didn’t mesh with the malt backbone. Blech.
