Pours a well sized, rosy head to it.

Smells heavily of sweet, tart raspberries, almost on par with a lambic. However, unlike a lambic, this has a bit more bitterness to the after taste. That being said, this is a sweet, sweet beer. In essence, it is fermented raspberries in a bottle.

It does seem to be somewhat one dimensional in that regard. However as a semi-lambic, I'm more than comfortable with that title.

If you're into a sweeter beer, this one is definitely for you. Double if you're a fan of raspberries.
