375 ml bottle, no dating that I was able to find. Served in a Prairie Artisan Ales lambic glass (tumbler), the beer pours a cloudy reddish/brown color with about an inch off-white head that stuck around a while. There was also a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice and fruity, the brew smells like fresh raspberries and raspberry jam, and a bit of grainy malt. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but I think the sweet, raspberry jam/sugary flavor is dominant. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit slick and is well carbonated. I liked this, and if you're a fan of the sweeter tasting fruited lambics then this is certainly worth picking up! $6.99 a bottle.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

Deep tanish red, a sort of almost rusted iron brown color. Minimal rising carbonation, meeting to a fine bubbled two finger sudsy and even head. Settles to a faint half finger, and a nice puck with a bit of crown like collar.

Boy is the aroma big. Large amounts of juiced raspberry fruit, rich and bursting. Minimal sensing lambic quality, no hints of dry acid and quite sweet smelling but doesn't hint at a lot of sugar sweet aromas. Real inviting nose.

Palate is not much of a surprise from the aroma. Thick raspberry sweetness but tolerable, washing over the mid palate. Light bodied but also not much funk or acidic notes to give. A big raspberry bonanza though all over the palate from start to finish.

It's a one dimensional lambic, but a really nice fruit showcase though.

L: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a dark, ruby color and a thick consistency. There was a small amount of off white, foamy head that lasted an average amount of time. Not a whole lot of lacing.

S: Not surprisingly, a big raspberry aroma, along with some yeast as well.

T: Like the aroma, tasted of a ton of raspberries, but also had traces of Belgian yeast, a hint of malt, and other fruity elements (tasted like a little bit of strawberry to me). Fairly one-dimensional, as you expect from a Lambic, but still very lively and enjoyable.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a somewhat slick finish. Light-bodied.

O: This is a very easy to drink, lightweight beer. A good example of a Lambic.

For a Fruit/Vegetable beer this would be a 4.5+/5 but for a Framboise Lambic it's a bit simplistic.
