Had this on tap several times, but from memory. Looks really inviting, like I take a 36 oz tankard of this stuff! Smells of bread and ripe raspberries and floral-ness...I'd swim in this stuff. Taste is fruit forward, and lightly sour, but not over the top (although I love this too), and fresh raspberries (duh...) and bread. Mouthfeel is appropriate, carbonation is low, and everything is well balanced and considered. I'd drink this until the end of time.

A: The beer is clear garnet in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high pink head that died down rather quickly and left large specks of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge of the glass and some lacing down the sides..
S: There are light to moderate aromas of raspberries in the nose.
T: The taste is filled with flavors of tart raspberries and also has some hints of sweetness. The tartness lingers through the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is an enjoyable and drinkable fruit lambic that doesn't have artificial flavors and has much more tartness compared to sweetness. It almost feels like you're having a very strong raspberry sorbet.

Pour is blood red with pink hues and a dark pink head. The nose is overly sweet and singular, loads of raspberry purée and raspberry syrup. Taste is just that with maybe a touch of tartness. Decent carbonation and syrupy feel. Simple and too sweet, no lambic notes or depth.

Arrives a deep, clear garnet color with a whiff of foam sprinkled across. No retention nor was any expected.
Smell is raspberries, slight malt and sugar notes. Balance is very good, not overpowering.
Taste is the same, raspberries, light malt, slight oakiness, somewhat tart. Very well balanced.
Reasonably smooth, somewhat tart while still being refreshing and sweet. Dessert in a glass. The equal of Duchess du Bourgogne.

O - a nice treat every once in a while.

25.4 ounce bomber, corked and caged, poured into one of my Stone Double Bastard sampling glasses.

A: pours a bright red hugh, barely translucent, with a thin white head on top. Surprising carbonation level. 3.5

S: tart raspberries dominate the nose. Very natural smelling. 4.0

T: taste follows the nose. Delightfully tart raspberries. Sweet and Sour. A one trick pony, but it does what it says it does... delivers lots of raspberry flavor. Dry finish. 4.0.

M: light and dry, with decent carbonation for the age. Even creams up a little in the mouth. 4.0

D: drinkable and enjoyable. I would have this again, but I wouldn't want to buy it/drink it in large quantities. 4.0
