This pours a reddish, pink color with only a slight light pink head. The aroma is fairly strong and sweet with raspberries. The taste is sweet, smooth, and delicious. This makes for a great after dinner/desert beer. There’s plenty of other comparable raspberry lamics on the market so this is not an over-the-top amazing beer, but it is still pretty good.

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.

3.8/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: It has a nice ruby/orange color to it. It has a nice light pink head that dies down moderately and leaves nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of sweet raspberries with some faint bready malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has alot of sweet raspberries, with light lemon and a light breadiness.

Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with decent flavors and aromas.

4.13/5  rDev +9.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

375ml bottle poured into a wine glass.

A - Pours a murky reddish rosé color with a light pinkish head of frothy foam. Excellent head retention with sticky lacing that trumps most brews I've seen before. I've always heard that lambics are no good for head retention and lacing, but this brew takes that

S - Smells of raspberries, more sweet than tart, with a subtle grassy funk and slight metallic twang Pretty simple on the nose, although nice.

T - All raspberries upfront, crisp and sweet, with some mild maltiness and subtle grassy funk. Again, like the nose this is really simple, but also really nice. Really mild profile overall, maybe even more-so than the Lindemans Framboise. Just a touch of sourness in the finish.

M - Light to medium bodied, with some crisp carbonation. Not much else to say, though fitting for the style.

D - A damn tasty brew from Mort Subite. While it's not exactly a funky Cantillon lambic, this beer is crisp and refreshing and overall really enjoyable.
