3.55/5 rDev -8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
A- very dark sparkly pink....pretty? like a dark pink champagne
S- Something in it I just didn't like the smell, like old raspberry and dirty socks
T- The taste was much better than the smell, raspberry really shines through.
M- Light, crisp, and bubbly
O- My wife picked this one out, she thinks it smells like old dirty water, she loves Lambics. I thought the taste was ok for a fruit beer but the smell left me not wanting to put my nose near the glass. We both tested it but in the end dumped it.
After the glass sat on the counter all night, the funky odor was completely gone and it smelled wonderful like a sweet raspberry sauce that would go on ice cream. 2.0 up to a 3.5
The flavor was also improved, even though it was pretty good the first time. 3.0 up to a 3.5
Not sure we will buy it again, but if we do we will defiantly let it breath a few hours because it really improved the bottle we had...

Pours an attractive red shade, somewhere in between burgundy and cardinal. A soft pink covering of foam rests nicely on top. The aroma is sweet and complex. While a trace of hops and grains can be detected, the drinker is overwhelmed with ripe raspberry. A tart aspect mixes well with what is perceived to be the malts. The flavor is quite similar to the qualities in the aroma... it is a bit earthy, a little bitter, and is very wine-like. It's got a nice, crisp finish... similar to a fresh cider. Overall I rather like this one, especially as I am not the biggest fan of fruit beers. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys adult beverages, except perhaps those who might not like something that's moderately tart.
