This is a wonderful fruity beer for people who are either not into bitter IPAs or filling milky stouts.

This lambic has a genuine tangy raspberry smell that makes you eager to take a sip. Has a bubby and light mouthfeel to it, almost like a sparkling cider or champagne. Obviously it has a strong raspberry taste that stays true to what a real fresh raspberry would taste like. It has a tangy aftertaste that isn't too powerful, but has a decent lingering to it.

Definitely a nice well made lambic. If I ever have a craft beer night with my buds and have people there that arent really into the craft beer world, this is what I would have as a backup.

This beer was served in a chalice and had a dark red hazy color with a light pink head. The smell was a deep fruity raspberry aroma that dominated the nostrils. As expected, the flavor was similar to the smell, a sweet, tart, raspberry flavor with a slightly tart aftertaste. The carbonation was closer to that of a soda rather than an ale.

This lambic had the flavor and mouth feel of a carbonated juice.

When I hear that people serve beer to their children at dinner in Europe I imagine this is the type of beer they would serve to them.

In moderation, this is a deliciously sweet desert ale I would share with friends who do not typically enjoy beers.

If you like a sweet raspberry beer this is the one for you. Smell is wonderful and fruity. Mouth feel has a bubbly feel high in carbonation. Drink this cold as it doesn't taste very good warm bit you should have no problem because taste is excellent and you will want bottle after bottle. Low in abv so will make a good session beer for your lady if she is she is not into other beers.
