3.38/5  rDev -9.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A-Pours a pinky, reddish amber color. Big, giant head with pink tints. Lots and lots of lacing.

S-A bit musty and quite sweet. Sweet raspberry. Like a mix between a Cantillon and a Lindemans framboise. The label says it's got artificial flavor in it, so that's not awesome. It smells fairly artificial.

T-The flavor is decently artificial but it has some fairly organic qualities. Sweet raspberries. I feel like I can grind the sugary taste in between my teeth. Strawberries too. Not a start as I want. I equate raspberries with tartness and it's sweetness makes me think more of strawberries.

M-Soft carbonation. A bit fuller than I expected. Sticky.

O/D-Like a bridge between Lindemans and Drie Fonteinen and Cantillion. Definitely closer to the former. Don't love the 'artificial flavor' thing here. That's why this is a $6 for a 375ml as opposed to a $20 375ml from the big boys.

Bright blood red colour, minimal white head, some lace left on the glass. Smell is of sweet raspberry, tart, slight sour notes, deep down there is some funk...sort of a let down in the nose. Taste is Big raspberry, lightly sour, sweetness takes over from here there is also a semi sour tart finish. High carbonation, medium weight, syrupy sweet feel. Okay overall, a little too sweet for my liking but I might have this again down the road.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

served from a 330ml green bottle with cork into a snifter. BB 2009

A- pours a foggy pinkish red with a slight pink finger thick head, nice lace on the glass.

S- Lots of raspberry and alot of other fruit aromas as well, peaches, some strawberry, almost smells like fruit punch.

T- lots of raspberry obviously, slight tart but not sour, flavors of watermelon and red grapes with some sweet malt noticed mid palate. Somewhat tart in the finish.

M- Medium bodied, with carbonation that works well.

D- Refreshing and drinkable.

Overall a fairly good lambic. Recommended.

Cloudy dark iced tea color. Thin head. Aromas- rasberry, tart, mildly wine-like. Taste is pleasantly tart, not as sweet as Lindeman's version. Very earthy aftertaste, maybe hay.

A- Like I'd expect from a raspberry wine with a slight carbonation.

S- Raspberry, raspberry, raspberry.

T- See Smell.

M- A little thin. Has a fruity drink feel, almost like a juice.

D- Very, very easy to down. More like juice than like beer. Too expensive though.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Overwhelming sweet raspberry ale.

Presentation: 25 Cl. bottle. Relatively simple design of white fonts over a black background with an image of raspberries. Back shows different narratives in several languages noting the main intent and brewing procedure alongside a brief overview of ingredients. Shows best by date (09-09-11) Notes Alc. by Vol. (4,3%). Served in a tulip glass.

A - Medium pink pour. Generous head with good retention, shrinking down to a persistent surface lump, and fair rich lacing.

S - Overwhelmingly sweet nose of raspberry. Minor nuances under it get lost in an instant.

T - Taste explodes where the nose left it with an almost mono-thematic raspberry sense woven with an enormous sweet sense. Very syrupy.

M - Light to medium body with fine carbonation and a thick finish.

D - It´s actually not that bad for such a single minded brew but remains rather boring and repetitive.

Notes: The fruitiness and the raspberry sweetness is not so much the problem as it is losing lambic complexities under the fruit and sugar. Almost forgettable unless there is an occasion to share the oddity.

** This is marketed in Spain as Xtreme Framboise. Seems to belong under this entry but if a noticeable different brew it may require its own entry.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Amber reddish color with a thick two finger head with good retention and leaving laces.
Nice predominant aroma of raspberries with a Lambic tartness. Hints of caramel malt and wood.
Intense sweet taste of ripped raspberries with a clear tartness base. Occasionally funky. Hints of lemon, soap, sweetener and oak. Dry and acid aftertaste.
Medium body with low carbonation with tiny bubbles.
It is just overly sweet (why the hell they even added sweetener?). Though, it should be a good pairing with desserts.
