This was poured into a stange. The appearance was a fairly deep glossy red color with about a finger’s worth of a foamy pink head. Once the head dissipated, there was some pink lacing around the glass. The smell had some sour and sweet raspberries, sour cherries that held the lead and then a light yeasty/breadiness came through to lighten the touch of sweet sugar. The taste combined all of the previously mentioned flavors pretty nicely and gave a decent combined tart to sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. Overall, this was a very nice sweet Lambic that would make a nice dessert beer for the flavorings, but because of the low ABV, probably not a night cap.

Drank several bottles poured into pint glasses.
L: A dark, gorgeous burgundy absolutely beautiful to look at.
S: I love raspberries and it has a very strong raspberry smell.
T: Similar to the nose but has a very sharp tart aftertaste was a little much for me at times but it was really good.
F: The feel was almost syrupy which was a not too awesome for me.
O: An awesome beer for the style and a beer that really got my wife into exploring beer alongside me which is awesome. Definitely worth it with the blend of sweet/sour just wish the tartness wasn't so strong in the aftertaste.

Smells like the best raspberry in the world, looks dark burgundy red, tastes like slightly carbed raspberries sweet but not to much I think I was smelling 5 times to every taste, feels thinner than the taste or scent. Outstanding

From a bottle, pours as dark red (not just amber) with a delicate pink head. Aroma pretty identical to raspberry syrup. Totally reminds me of childhood over flavored (raspberry) fizzy drinks. Taste of sweet raspberry and dark sour fruit with a bit of yeast and ample carbonation. I could see this as a base for a sangria.

A stranger to the sour style, this introduction may have been a rough start. This make was partially reminiscent of Warheads, the obnoxiously acidic 90s candy. The first sweet sip of raspberry is pretty pleasant with a friendly fizz, and then the sour punch comes in strong but not overwhelming. The finish is may be the best feature, but it doesn't quite permit the price..

Pours thick reddish purple with a fizzy off white/ violet head that soon creates a film over the surface.

Smell is deffinetly raspberries, green apples, straw

Taste is ripe raspberries with subtle hint of green apple,oh so sweet with just the right amount of tart, fruit juice, candy

Overall a fantastic beer! It's thick yet so refreshing, like drinking raspberry candy
