Hated this beer and I'm utterly confused about the raves for it - it had exactly the appearance, taste, smell, and mouthfeel of cherry Sprite to me, and nearly the same alcohol content. It was overly carbonated, despite nearly no head, tasted like artificial fruit flavoring, and cost $9 for 12oz. Tasted nothing like I was expecting from previous experience with lambics, because I didn't realize "Framboise" meant "Raspberry," or I would have skipped it. Total waste of money, easily the worst beer I've had yet.

I feel like a freshman in college again. Pours a mostly cloudy dark ruby red color. A very pinkish red head that was a bit fizzy. Decent retention though did not last through the tasting and no lace to speak of.

The nose is sweet with an almost imitational raspberry smell to it. More along the lines of a wine cooler than anything else. The raspberries dominate any malt or yeast aroma. Some minor vinegar notes but very limited and one dimensional overall.

The taste is very wine cooler-esk as well. Very sweet up front that just lingers into the finish. A big under attenuation note for sure. The raspberries comes out but does blend with a imitational furity note. Some minor malty notes but limited and really cant pick out anything minus the fruit. Some sour notes more along the acidic side but limited. Looking for more for a lambic.

The body is sweet, way to sweet. Looking for a much drier body.

I understand that this is a very low gravity beer and emphasizes the fruit aspect, but overall this is note enjoyable at all. Way too sweet, fake fruit notes, and limited beer notes makes this a drain pour.
