3.25/5  rDev +12.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

[Suggested Glassware: Weizen Glass]

The pour was a hazy medium peachy red with a huge (3-4 finger) light pink pillowy head that receded slowly down to a medium film and collar with some excellent sticky lacing.

The aroma was intense with the smell of raspberry and had a hint of grain malts, a sweaty yeast and a touch of wheat.

The taste had a sweet tart flavor to it and a big dose of raspberry throughout with a very sweet candi sugar finish. The flavor lasted an average duration with the intense sweetness fading away at a good steady pace.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation.

Overall an excellent flavored Witbier that is more like drinking a wine cooler that a beer. But then again a wine cooler is a malt beverage...

2.49/5  rDev -13.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Pours a large head that fades quickly leaving minimal lacing

Smell: Raspberries and sugar. Not much else to speak of. Smells good, but not really very fresh and natural.

Taste: While it's generally hard for me to resist raspberries, something is off here. I don't know whether adjuncts are being used, but the sweetness is over the top and is not balanced by the typical tartness that accompanies a raspberry lambic. The taste is syrupy and odd.

Mouthfeel: Thickness is fine, but the carbonation is over the top in the finish. Somewhat sticky and lacks the dry tartness that I want from the style.

Overall: With so many good raspberry lambics out there, I can't recommend this. The raspberry flavor isn't fresh and natural, and there are no other flavors to make this work.
