Pours a vibrant reddish pink. I imagine that this is what a bottle of rosé would look like if you reduced it.

Tart and refreshing aroma.

Raspberries are more complimentary to the style than they are dominating. Slightly tart.

Delicate, effervescent.

I could definitely knock back a few of these.

Thanks to NoSignsOfPain for sharing this one at MrHirschybar's place!

Pours a murky cranberry red with an off-white head that settles to a film on the top of the beer. No lacing on this on. Smell is of lots of sour and funky berry aromas (obviously raspberries are the main thing here). Taste is pretty much the same but raspberries come through as the main fruit flavor. There is an acidic quality in the throat with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some nice funky and sour berry combos going on.

On tap at the source.

So imagine how good liefman's raspberry lambic sounded before you actually tasted it. Well what if it actually tasted as good as you had imagined? If you're sick of imagining get yourself some of this. Super balanced. Great tartness cut by a delicious raspberry sweetness.

Seriously so good. I hope The Bruery decides to bottle this some day.

On-tap at the source itself, on to the beer:

I've had enough raspberry juice in my life to recognize the color. It looks like, well, raspberry juice, with a large soda-like formation of head, though retention is passable. It smells similar to raspberry juice, but not so sweet and more tart.

It tastes like a reasonable raspberry beer, yet I feel like something is missing to take it to the next level. Maybe I was expecting more sweet raspberry flavor and less tartness. The beer has a medium mouthfeel, carbonation is right, and it is refreshing.

I'm more into cranberries than raspberries, so perhaps that's why I prefered Carmen over BeRazzled. Still, BeRazzled commands some respectability.
