Had at Morte Subite in Brussels.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy red-orange, with a rocky, pink head that retains well and leaves heavy lace on the inside of the glass.

Smell: A sweet raspberry fruitiness dominates, with only a light funkiness evident.

Taste: Sweet and syrupy raspberry is all that is evident.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, tingly carbonation, syrupy.

Drinkability: Drinkable, but too sweet.

I still cannot find the full pleasure in the Framboises and the Krieks, specially when the fruit flavour is as abundantly seen as here. The pour is very dark toned with a slight, purplish head as though in rather a juice than a beer. The smell, clearly, obviously, only framboises all over the place. As was the taste. because the beer cannot really be felt, imo, here, but rather is overwhelmed completely by the fruit juice. not my type, anyways.

G: Duvel Tulip

A: Cloudy pink body with two fingers of white foamy head. Moderate retention and blotchy lacing.

S: Huge front of sweet candy like raspberries. Pleasing to the nose.

T: Very sweet raspberry flavour is dominant with the slightest sourness and tartness at the back. Not what I was expecting at all.

M: Light bodied and medium-light carbonation. Very smooth and frothy in the mouth while leaving a sticky candy-like raspberry finish.

D: Not bad, but I don't know if a lambic should taste this way. To me it just tastes like a raspberry soda. Where is the sourness? All in all, it's way to expensive for what it offers.

Label lists: "artificial flavor, artificial sweetener, artificial color"... so what's left? Not lambic, that's for sure. Not sure why Mort Subite doesn't export their traditional Oude Gueuze & Kriek, they can keep this saccharine junk.

Nice scarlet tone from the artificial coloring, which must be also responsible for the pink foam. Highly charged with co2, the cork pops with a bang and a wisp of gunsmoke. Copious clumps of lace in the glass almost redeems it.

Artificially sweet raspberry, floral like a raspberry soap at grandma's house.

Lightly tart and vaguely oxidized, some bland papery malt. Middle is sweet like raspberry candy, verging on cloying, but less so than Lindemans. Carbonation is spritzy. Sticky sweet on the lips. Fruit seems more like candy syrup than actual raspberries.

Overall this isn't terrible for an artificially sweetened & flavored lambic, but it's fake and that's the bottom line. Try a traditional lambic for something worlds better than this wannabe raspberry wine-cooler. Review #55 - Lambic-Fruit category.

dark muddy garnet color, with a strong foamy head
nose is (not surprising) full of raspberries, however a bit too treacle style (in a blind test could be mistaken for a kiddy sirup ...)
a fresh taste of fizzy raspberries with soury notes of granny smith apple cider ...
refreshing brew, however way too sirupy for my taste ...

Pinkish orange with a subdued pink-tinted head... laces well...aromas of sweetness and berries. Big carbonation....sweet and sour tastes over berries...no hopping detectable to speak of... a light musty dry finish...really like a cider/fruit spritzer...the ladies like it, I don't care for it.

375ml corked and caged bottle into Hill Farmstead stemware. Shared by schen9303.

Pours a rich, light pink and cream colored head with good retention. Beer is a clear dark red-purple. Lacing is thick and layered. Really great.

Nose is sweet raspberries and a ton of sugar. This one is obviously intentionally sweetened.

Flavor is of sweet raspberry puree. Slightly seedy and a little tart with a crisp finish that's got some bite. Decent.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Foamy in the mouth and prickly going down. Accented finish with a slightly syrupy aftertaste.

Not bad for a sweetened lambic. At least it's not cloying. Simple and pretty enjoyable.

Red tinged golden colour. Some head. Has the lambic flavour, and the raspberry flavour, but neither in the appropriate amounts. It's drinkable, but not quite what it could be.

Hazy red colored ale the color of red soda with a small pinkish white colored head.

Smells strongly of raspberry even from a great distance. Sweet and tart raspberry scent is overpowering.

Starts out with a sour raspberry taste. Slightly bitter and solidly sour. This has been sweetened but has a decidedly sweet-tart flavor. Medium level of bitterness but this is mostly raspberry.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall an OK Frambose for those who like them more sour.
