Dark ruby color with a huge head with great retention and leaving laces.
Nice aroma with predominant notes of raspberries and slightly sour with a distant vinegar.
Refreshing flavor with notes of raspberries, spices, wood, green apple, cherries, lemon and maybe floral hops. Dry with a friendly acid aftertaste.
Light body with perfect carbonation.
Incredibly easy to drink and super refreshing Fruit Lambic. Not with a heavy tartness or funky complex. Don't try to compare it to a Gambrinus. I could have several of those.

Appearance – A dark purple red color with nice head and a light-medium lacing.

Smell – Raspberry juice. More sweet than sour.

Taste – Tastes like raspberries and cranberry juice with oak. Some bitterness too; more of an oaky bitterness than a hops bitterness.

Mouthfeel – Lightly carbonated, maybe even a little flat. Has a sourness to the feel.

Drinkability – Goes down easy, though I find the bitterness a bit off-putting.

fortunate enough to have this one on draft. a really great beer all up, enormously better than their base kriek i think. the fruit is less medicinal, and the lambic base comes through more. i see more grain, more sourness, and a better mouthfeel that isnt so weighted down by fruit sugars. the raspberry nose is robust, and the flavor is just as true. a little tart, a lot summery, and all fruit on the finish. clear in color, way more clear than the kriek, with a brilliant ruby red as its base, but not a whole lot of head. i smell what i taste, and im fine with that, although this is nowhere near as dynamic or compelling as the best framboise on the market. i do think its a step up from the elementary kriek in its fruit authenticity and its dryness, which is only medium, but way less sweet than the cherry. i also think its more drinkable for the same reason. again, nowhere near as good as some of the more mature beers they do, oude kriek for example, but awfully good and a darn good presentation of what raspberry can do in a simple base beer.
