Girlfriend flat out loves this stuff. Not nearly as sweet as berry weiss but still has lots of good aroma and very drinkable. Not too sweet and you can definitely smell the raspberries. We love drinking Lindeman's Framboise - but you cannot drink that in quantity. This is the perfect balance of fruit flavor in a beer merged with drinkability. Has a fairly high alcohol content to boot - a few of these will definitely satisfy you on a friday/saturday night if you are a fan of fruit beers (or if your lady is so inclined). Price can be a bit high (we paid 9.49 for a 4-pack, but worth it if you love it - pretend it's $2.50 bottles at the bar!) A nice example of how to balance fruit with beer and not go too far in either direction. Highly recommended.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.
Poured a deep ruby hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.
The smell featured soft ripe raspberries, that's it.
The taste consisted of the same raspberry element, but not overly sweet.
The mouthfeel was smooth.
Overall a tasty fruit beer.

From twelve ounce bottle, freshness date is illegible.
Very strong raspberry aroma! Pours deep ruby brown with red highlights, pale off white/pink head. Head dissipates immediately. Taste is sweet , raspberry absolutely forward. Lambic like. Very drinkable, not for the person who loves hops!!
