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.
