This is the only lambic I've ever enjoyed, but/and I'm not quite sure it qualifies as a true lambic. Some of the bad reviews on BA may be due to how it is fermented: in open casks naturally, not in a controlled environment. Because of this, not every batch will taste the same. But I haven't had a bad one yet. After enjoying this stuff for quite some time, I was surprised to learn of its low alcohol content. One glass has always given me a buzz, and let's just say I can drink A LOT.... But anyway, it tastes like a thick, tart raspberry lemonade, with no hints of alcohol or yeast. Very sweet, but very tart. I love it. This has always been a compromise for me too, when entertaining ladies; I hate white wine, and most girls like this stuff just as much if not better, thank god.

Old bottle. Not sure how old, probably 2 years at least. Hopefully it's still good.

A: Pours a vibrant red with a decently large dense pink head. Fades at a moderate pace with pretty good head retention. Surprisingly decent lacing to boot.

S: Raspberries, raspberries, raspberries with a hint of raspberries. Super sweet and strong raspberries. Like raspberry syrup.

T: Sweet raspberry syrupy with just brief hint of tartness that kicks in in the middle. Not unlike drinking pure raspberry juice, but even sweeter.

M: Medium bodied, which is crazy for a 2.5% beer.

O: Well, it's a very simple and sweet lambic. Pure raspberries with lots of sugar. Just a tiny hint of tartness for a brief moment, otherwise it's just raspberry juice. Problem is, I love raspberries and this is oddly delicious. And it gets you drunk (well, after a long time I guess, at only 2.5%). How can you go wrong?

Hated this beer and I'm utterly confused about the raves for it - it had exactly the appearance, taste, smell, and mouthfeel of cherry Sprite to me, and nearly the same alcohol content. It was overly carbonated, despite nearly no head, tasted like artificial fruit flavoring, and cost $9 for 12oz. Tasted nothing like I was expecting from previous experience with lambics, because I didn't realize "Framboise" meant "Raspberry," or I would have skipped it. Total waste of money, easily the worst beer I've had yet.
