Nose of raspberry syrup, but also strawberries, which appears slightly sparkling. The mouth is a tad acid but remains light and a lack of flavor is noticeable. The body is very robust, it is very bubbly and will inevitably think of the soda-pop. The beer is much less sweet than the nose would suggest but the raspberry is far from being powerful in the mouth and an unpleasant feeling of too-light emerges once the beverage drank. While it is not an ultra-sweet beer to satisfy the younger but it lacks a lot of complexity to satisfy fans of fruit non-lambic.

i'm not a fan of fruity beers, but when it's well balanced like that one, i choose to rate it! because i don't want to rate beers i don't like.
The nice red color make a good rememberance of raspberries and other red fruits.. compared to other redfruits beers it's a great one.
Nice head, smell like the fruits, maybe just too much sugar, but honestly, on tap it's amazing.

Dark red colour with a slightly pinkish head.

Vibrant raspberry smell with a pleasant malt tinge to it. Sweet, juice like taste, very heavy on the raspberries. Not much of a malt or hop profile to this.

Okay mouthfeel, but it comes off more as a carbonated juice than a beer. Drinkable to an extent, but very sweet and almost sugary.

My bottles was 3.5%ABV, not 4.5

Presentation: Friday 9th April, 2004 was spent in Binche, Belgium, the home of Brasserie La Binchoise. Sadly our planned trip to both the Brewery and on-premises Tavern proved fruitless thanks to the fact that it was closed.

After a few beers in the nearby Du Côte De Chez Boule our small party headed into the main ‘square’. Here we sampled some brews at La Chamade whilst looking at the many pictures of the Carnival that adorns the walls. La Binchoise Rose des Ramparts was the first and was from the Bottle.

Appearance: Arrived in a clear glass bottle that had been already opened. The Waitress looked at us as if we were “out of our minds” and wasn’t sure if she should leave the Glasses that were on her tray or not. Surely if we knew we ordered this we wouldn’t need Glasses right? A group of adults drinking flavored soda-pop fruit beer will need Glasses though? What we go through for a new experience. Darkish cloudy purple color with a little flamingo pink head that fizzes away to a quick death and leaves a flat looking cranberry plum juice offering. Looks Sad.

Nose: Uuargh. Raspberry syrup meets fizzy pale ale. Sickly Framboise-wannabe that is one-dimensional. Enough to make all of our party wary before we even sampled this one.

Taste: Oh my, much worse than the smell – and that’s saying something. Raspberry Ripple Ice-Cream meets Billy No Testicles at the Eunuchs Ball. Simply awful. I cannot repeat what my notes say but there are at least two F-words and one that begins with Sh.

Mouthfeel: Sickly sweet and sticky. Raspberry juices mixed into a Soda based Amber Ale. Scrape this one of your cheeks before the next brew.

Drinkability: I finished it, just, there was no way I was going to let the Waitress think that she was right! LOL. I’m sure this is very drinkable if you are 12 years old.

Overall: We should have known from the shocked look of the Waitress that served us the Rose des Remparts that this drink is not for grown Men. Oh how right she was. Shockingly awful. Low grade Alco-Pops are officially now available in Belgium from one of the strangest and least likely sources it seems.

Described by the Brewery as a “Raspberry-flavored with very soft taste. This summer session, light and refreshing beer appeals to women and young drinkers”. Yep, that’s about it!! It’s for Jessie’s and Kids is this one!
