A: 1/4" very light pink head (haha) that left a nice lacing over reddish liquid.

S: Smells just like raspberry juice.

T: Tastes just like raspberry juice.

M: Medium viscosity and medium level of carbonation.

O: A very sweet lambic that has little to no funk or sourness like the kinds that I prefer.

I really enjoy this beer. Most people (BMC drinkers) don't believe its beer. Pours with a huge thick frothy light pink head and it lasts the entire beer. A very attractive colour almost like a fruit punch kool aid. Smells of raspberry and other fruits, some wine notes as well. Taste is sweet, fruity and a sour lambic character. Refreshing and highly drinkable.

This poured the most amazing red with un-ending pinkish head.
The sweetness of this brew decreases the score from excellent to good. The aroma lacks malt, but is full of berry fruit.
The taste is unmistakeably raspberry. I would not be surprised if they put raspberry juice in just before bottling. Low carbonation was key in enjoyability.

This a great brew to introdue people to the world beyond lagers.

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.

375mL corked bottle...

A - Looks stunning. Slightly cloudy deep red body, with a rich, creamy head. The head sticks around for a while, and there is plenty of creamy lacing.

S - Fresh, ripe raspberries dominate, and it becomes clear from the first few seconds. Other than than, there is a hint of bready malts and tart lemon.

T - Starts out like raspberry juice, only much more tart. There is hint of malts, and even a more subtle hint of hops. The finish is tart to the point of being lemon-like, while the raspberry flavour is still sticking around. As tart and sour as it is, there is yet some moderate sweetness that softens the taste. There is also a slight spiciness, coming from the wild yeast fermentation.

M - Not light-bodied, surprisingly. Some pleasant carbonation, virtually no bitterness. This is a tart beer, though, and you must be ready for it, as the tartness comes through right away and lingers for a while.

D - Goes down almost as easy as raspberry juice/beverage. However the tartness can decrease the drinkability for some people.

This is a very good Framboise lambic, in my opinion. Definitely not the beer for everyone, and perhaps a little girly, but I like it.

A- Deep ruby/purple hazy color. Zero head, just a thin white ring around the top of the glass of little tiny bubbles.

S- Raspberries, strawberries, red wine, sugar cane and honey dew melon.

T- Raspberries, cherries, cranberries, sugar cane and red wine (tastes like a wine cooler)

M- Crips refreshing, not too tart and the carbonation adds a good bite on the tongue.

D- Very drinkable but I think it's a little too sweet to warrant more than one in a night.

Pours a reddish brown with a foamy head that has a pinkish hue. The head retention is very good.

The smell is all raspberry, quite tart raspberry. Makes my mouth water a little bit. After a few more smells I start to find a bit of mustiness underlying.

The taste is loaded with raspberry, but at once it is sweet, tart and sour. The finish is fairly high in sourness, and leaves me salivating a little. Tasty, but seems to be all over the place.

The mouthfeel is like pop, a little bit syrupy and high in carbonation. No complaints.

Tasty, but not something to have very often. Once in a while a bottle to split with another person would be alright.

Very nice...sweet/sour punch with some serious aftertaste.
This brew is a long way from my style of beer but it does have some very nice attributes...the raspberry explosion alone is worth the price of admission.
Arrived a cloudy burgandy with a very thick head. Carbonation is a multitude of very small bubbles which soon lessens.
Body is medium/full.
Would be diffacult to consume more than one of these due to the sweet lingering aftertaste...but one is enjoyable!!!

Color is red, slightly dark. Nice foamy head on top of it. It sticks quite well to the glass. Dense head too. The aroma is fruity... mainly strawberries but very sugary... probably juice instead of real strawberries. As the ingredient list says... its juice, not real strawberries. Slightly sour. Taste is good, quite sugary and the sourness is almost not present. Thus if you hate sourness of lambic, this one has none! To me this is good as well as those very acidic lambics. Its different, but still very enjoyable.

Cheers all!
