Had this on tap at Duckworth's in Charlotte.

Came out a dark ruby red with a small pinkish cap of foam on top. Really sweet nose, with raspberry, lemon, strawberry, and slight astringent smack on the finish. Crisp, bubbly, easy to drink. A delicate feel is nice here given the low ABV.

Sweet juicy raspberries, tart strawberry, with a touch of acetic tartness on the finish. Like a jar of fresh jam. This isn't a beer for everyone, nor is it an everyday beer, but I really liked it. Next to NG's Raspberry Tart, this may be my favorite Raspberry-forward beer to date. A good one for celebrations and one tailor-made for desserts.

On tap in a flute at MacGregor's Grill and Tap Room, East Avenue, Rochester, NY.

Pours a dark, ruby red, with a fizzy one inch head, and some rings of lacing.

Smells like pure raspberry- raspberry puree, raspberry jelly, raspberry juice.

Very sweet, sort of cloying raspberry taste to this. It probably doesn't taste much like a normal lambic, basically tastes like thick alcoholic fruit juice. The taste is nice, but it's quite hard to get through a lot of this. A little bit of tartness reminds you this is a lambic, but the sweetener added is the true star of this.

Medium bodied, thick and syrupy mouthfeel. Medium carbonation.

A tasty novelty, but I can't drink too much of this.

This beer tastes like a $10 rasberry wine cooler AND got me beat up. But that is what I expected. So. OMG. SO good!!! The appearance was like a pinkish red beer. Smelled like rasberry. Tasted like the aforementioned wine cooler. Clean sweet finish. Felt so refreshing in my mouthfeel. Overall I would give it a 10 if I could. Best rasberry flemish beer I have EVER had!
