Thanks to hopshunter for this one.
A: Pours a nice light pinkish red hue with no real head or lace noted.
S: Aromas of fresh tart raspberries, with other earthy berry type notes.
T: Nicely berry for sure. A nice blast of tart fresh raspberry with rock candy sweetness to balance things out. It is both sweet and sour with neither dominating the beer.
M: Very light, bubbly carbonation.
D: Pretty good. Not a bad beer. One I would buy from time to time if I could find it.

Deep pink with a very nice head this a framboise that straddles the line between commercial and artisanal. The marriage between sour and sweet and the inherent drinkability that results fromn that union make this a very nice beer. Not as complex as offerings from Cantillon and Boon, this however is a decent take on the style

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.

A - Pours a dark ruby red, slightest haze, two fingers of head with solid retention and some nice chunky lacing.
S - Super sweet, fresh raspberries, hint of mustiness, and reminiscent of kool-aid.
T - Loads of raspberries, and tons of sugar, hint of caramel, light hoppy bitterness, dry vineous wine and a sweet champagne flavour that lingers.
M - Super light, bubbly and reminsicent of champagne, smooth going down and a hint of dryness on the finish.
O - This stuff is tasty and although quite sweet, I don't know that it ventures into the category of overly sweet. Still possesses those light beer characteristics that keeps it in the lambic field and out of the cider realm from a tasting perspective. I would buy this stuff again, though more than likely for my wife as a way to ease her into the world of beer!

Pours a rusty pink with a large and uneven white head, that dropped to a film and left some nice lace spotting on the glass. While I kow this isn't really a lambic, the appearance could fool you! The aroma is huge and full of fresh raspberries, which is pleasant enough, but could do with more than the hint of sourness it has to add some depth.
The flavour proves that this is about as far from a true fruit lambic as you can get, but I'm digging it nonetheless, and its a very good fruit beer. Big, fresh rapberries throughout. with a slight sour tartness and a hint of bread, but for the most part its all raspberry. Sweet, but with enough balancing tartness to be highly drinkable. Body is light and refreshing with a spritzy carbonation.
So its not a big sour, but it is a very good fruit beer, and vitally it tastes like fresh fruit and not some artificial essence. Good stuff!

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.

My first raspberry lambic, thanks to the boundless generosity of stephenlouis. Comes in a green 375 ml magnum shaped bottle, caged and corked. Pours out an intense cloudy garnet hue, massive pillowing pinkish head capping it with serious retention. The nose contains wheat, raspberries and some mild spices. The flavour is of rich ripe raspberries and little else, the wheat only pokes through the clouds towards the very end, where there is a fruity spice finish. Full and pleasing mouthfeel, it is a delight to drink, and I am a sucker for raspberries. I could only drink one of these in an evening, but would make a great aperitif to share.

pours a nice ruby red colour with a huge fluffy pink head. the head drops slowly and leaves tons of clumpy lace.
aroma is good. strong tart raspberry. slightly sweet. bit of funk.
taste is good. lots of raspberry. tart and sweet. bittersweet chocolate. tobacco. not much funk.
mouthfeel is good. fairly dry, but with a nice body. the fairly high carbonation level works well.
drinkability is good. the sweetness takes away from the drinkability a little, but it's a nice beer.

Appearance. Pours a deep, slightly murky red-pink with a finger and a half of faint pink head. Nice delicate lacing.
Smell. Guess what I smell??? Rasberries!!! A lot like the blue rasberry popsicles I used to get in the park as a kid ...maybe a bit more like the real berrys than that, but ya, sweet rasberries.
Taste. Rasberry again!!! haha A little sweet and a little tart. Maybe just a little watery too. Nonetheless, tasy and refreshing.
Mouthfeel. Light body with medium-strong, smooth carbonation. Nice.
Overall. Refreshing and tart with just enough sweetness. Perfect for this first really warm evening of the spring.

Sorry but this following comment is in french :
Appearance : Rousse tirant sur le cuivre, voilée.
Smell : L'arome de cette bière met en relief la framboise, très concentrée, et la cave humide, le foudre de chêne.
Taste and mouthfeel : La framboise est très présente, mais jamais trop sucrée.
Drinkability : Pour un lambic édulcoré, c'est une bonne bière

Pours a pinkish-orange colour with huge white head. Nice lacing around the glass. Smells of sweet raspberry, almost like a raspberry pie. Flavour is quite tart from the raspberry. I really get nothing but raspberry, but it still is delicious. Nice carbonation level. Really easy to drink and I get to the end of the bottle before I realize. A bit expensive in Ontario at over $4 a bottle though.

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.

250ml bottle bought from Belgianshop.com... aged for almost two years... poured into a Mort Subite Framboise glass...
Poured quite a dark rose pink colour with some orange tinges.. light dusty pink head poured very thick and meringue like then faded very slowly leaving a steady trail of thick lacing rings around the glass...
Aroma - Lots of tart and sour raspberry fruitiness, some other fruit sweetness coming through - peach and water melon, light lambic funkiness, very faint biscuit notes, some woodiness...
Taste Very nice sweet and sour raspberries - quite tart also... some faint mustiness, light saltiness, again some biscuit malt just noticeable, rose wine notes..
Feel - Quite sharp and dry... light bodied... very refreshing and drinkable - would be good on a hot summer day rather than the coldest night of the year which it currently is !!
Overall - A surprisingly good Framboise, although i think the aging has helped - i've had this fresh and it was much sweeter.... definitely worth a try....

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.

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.
