as lambics go, im not sure this is my favorite, not tart enough, not acidic hardly at all, and lacking the wild fermentation characteristics i usually look for in the style, but as a fruited belgian ale, i absolutely love it, and its head and shoulders better than its immediate peers. natural looking purple pink raspberry color, a short lived stained pink head, and some chunks of yeast and maybe even a few raspberry seeds in there, it looks the part. the nose is great, jammy but not overly sweet, authentic fruity character and a little belgian yeast funk and fruit, but not the sourness true lambic usually possesses. i love the fruit flavor, not quite as true as the nose, mellowed by an oak hit here, but its still the chief flavor agent, and a genuine one at that. no corn sugar, no cavities, just true raspberry beer. its affordable and tasty, well carbonated and light, and overall extremely well made for what it is. not really passable as a sour, but im not sure its trying to be one. highly respectable brew here, better than some of the other fruit editions i think too, really summery and real fruity, i almost feel guilty for liking this as much as i do...

Ordered a framboise at a whiskey bar for the table expecting the usual and instead they brought a bottle of this gem out.

This pours a raspberry red in color, straight up. The aroma smacks of raspberry jam in its character and intensity. The flavor has a raspberry tartness with a sweetish but not cloying finish. Much preferred this to the more common “bar” framboise.
