Well, this is definitely a change. I like lambics, and this is definately a very sweet one.

Appearance - Two fingers of pinkish head, a dark reddish purple look, and medium lacing.

Smell - You get raspberries right off the hop, and a very candylike aroma. In fact, my sister says "Oh my god, it smells like raspberry campino candies"

Taste - Again, raspberries dominate. the candylike aroma carries over to the taste, which, is (like other reviewers have noted) a very 'jolly rancherish' taste. Very good though.

Mouthfeel - while you do get some carbonation, it is not overpowering. You do get sour notes, which are very pleasant after the almost overpowering sweetness.

Overall - A very good dessert or brunch beer. The next time I am having ice cream, i'll be sure to have this beer along with it.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours an extremely effervesent clear red. The head is light as fizzy and pink.

S: As for the smell. One word comes to mind....Raspberries.

T: Like the nose, this beer is basically a one trick pony. Raspberry. The berry flavor is very real and not generic in anyway. Reminds me of a raspberry sorbet.

M: On the tongue it remonds one of a sparkling wine or a wine cooler. It's light and very crisp.

Overall: Not something i would drink unless i had a jonesing for Raspberries. This isn't a bad beer by any means. I could easily see people not liking it. I found it drinkable and enjoyable.
