a nicely done fruit beer, but in the context of other belgian framboise types, its a step below the best. pink in color, almost as much so as the label, and very well carbonated. the berries lend more sugar than tartness in this incarnation, but there is plenty of both elements and just enough acid to cut the sugar. good use of fruit. pale wheat malt almost isnt quite enough of a base for this, as the fruits are really all you can taste or smell, and the yeast is similarly uneventful. if you are a lover of a well done fruity beer, this could be your choice, but for me i am missing the other beer elements, and the snappy dryness of the best versions. great carbonation though and with such a low alcohol content, this is a very sessionable brew, more of a summer thing for me, but a tasty raspberry jam offering from timmermans.

this beer exemplifies the diversity of beer - an easy drinking, sweet berry, summer delight

aroma: warmed up raspberry cordial predominates with berries, apple and blackcurrant

taste: strong raspberry, berries and sherbet with apple, blackcurrant and candy

the beer purists might mark it down for it's softdrink like taste but I think it's great. Full of raspberry goodness, it's a nice contrast to the majority of hop filled beers (which I greatly enjoy) on the market. A great beer to share with friends as it caters for most tastes

On tap at Lucky Baldwins in Pasadena, CA.

Pours a hazy light red with a foamy reddish-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and raspberry aromas. Taste is much the same with raspberry juice and raspberry syrup flavors on the finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is decent but is more juice-like in my opinion.

Poured into a skinny wine glass

Pours a brownish pink with a one finger white bubbly head that dissipates quickly and leaves a few small patches of bubbles in the middle and some lacing down the glass.

Smell is of candied raspberries and strawberry jam. Very fruity with just a hint of wheat.

Tastes like a sour raspberry candy. That's it. It's nice, but I was looking for something a little more complex. Very refreshing though.

Mouthfeel is nice. Perfectly carbonated. Leaves a slight sour aftertaste which I love. This is basically like drinking juice.

Overall this is a nice Lambic. Very different from what I was expecting. Nothing special to seek out but I would definitely drink again.
