Sienna color, some deposits. Freshly picked raspberries on the nose.

Mouth but very flat, watery with just a light scent of raspberry.

No aftertaste. No body. In any case, it sounds ephemeral in the mouth. No aftertaste. No body. In any case, it sounds ephemeral in the mouth.

Drank from my Duvel Tulip.

A - Pours a golden colour with small head that dies quickly.

S - Sweet jam aromas of strawberry.

T - Plenty of stawberries and not a lot else.

M - Light body with heaps of fizz.

D - Would not have another but would be ok with Ice cream

Thanks for the bottle TURG! Hazy brown liquid lays beneath a foamy, slight off-white head. Some lacing left behind. Boquet of fresh raspberries and candy. Marked unibroue yeast in the mouth, with mildly sweet raspberry flavours. Good carbonation. FInish is a tad watery. Pretty good. Merci Francois!

Not being a big fan of fruit beers, i nontheless decided to try out this one, being a fan of most of Unibroue's products. First of the nose is very faint compared to other raspberry beers i've tried. Then the taste, just as faint ... you can mostly taste a syrupy substance, more than raspberries per say! The color is this beer's best attribute as far as i'm concerned.

Not bad, but definitly not up to Unibroue's usual standards. A visit at my friend Pat Dunnigan's place in Bromont, Quebec and there you'll find a frambozen worthy of mention!!!

A - Very hazy light orange golden colour poured into a Unibroue tulip with a couple of centimetres of white head that falls away fairly fast.
S - Sweet raspberry smell dominates.
T - Unfortnantly the smell doesn't continue into the taste. It's there but much more subdued. A bit of wheat & some tartness.
M - Pretty light mouthfeel, slightly sticky, medium to high carbonation.
D - Nice beer but not something I'd drink on a regular basis.
