Wasn't sure what to make of this. Tasted like a tarty sweet raspberry dessert type of juice. Only lambic I've had so hard to judge. Wasn't bad, quite interesting, not sure what to make of it.

12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Deep, dark violet with a thin, pinkish head. Looks like a wine from a glance.

Smell: Rich and redolent. mashed fruit – raspberries, strawberries, red grapes – and sugar.

Taste: Sweet and tart, the raspberries are a very strong presence in the flavor of this beer. A slightly bready taste from the yeast, and the finish is that familiar sour tickle on the tongue that only comes from eating a fresh raspberry. And did I mention it's sweet?

Mouthfeel: Effervescent and dry, the hefty carbonation gives a pleasantly light feeling to something that would otherwise feel more on the desert side.

Overall: A delicious lambic, well-brewed and very satisfying. It's something I found has wide appeal; my mother, for instance, never drinks beer, but thoroughly enjoyed this offering. I like it quite a bit myself – I think I'll keep a bottle around as a tasty alternative to wine, something I'm not quite as fond of as beer.

Pours a burgundy color with a one inch pink head that was fairly well retained and left a couple rings of lacing. Smell is raspberries with a slightly sour element. Tastes of sweet and tart raspberries, with sweet being the dominant element, just a hint of yeast. Light to medium bodied, well carbonated, slightly dry mouth feel.
