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.
Serving type: bottle
