2.8/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours a murky light pinkish-red with a foamy reddish-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of raspberry jam and raspberry juice. Taste is much the same with an artificial sweetener flavor on the finish. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. There is also a dryness that occurs in the mouth after each sip for some odd reason. Overall, this is a pretty poor beer that smells promising but the flavor is way too sweet and artificial to be very drinkable.

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.
