Not real sure I am drinking beer but this is a good Dr Brown's soda...Pours a light red/pinkish with carbonation and slight head. Some mild lacing occurs. Smell fruity-definitely better than the cherry version. Taste is like a raspberry, not too malty. Mouth feel is rich and velvety, light bodied and carbonated. I could drink a few of these, but maybe not during the big game.

Beer poured from the 12.7 ounce bottle into a goblet.

The beer is surprisingly heady, leaving a two-finger thick layer atop the liquid. The head looks chewy and creamy and is persistent. Carbonation continues to rise from within long after the pour. As for color, the beer is the color of a dark plum.

The smell is all raspberry with maybe a slight wheatiness. Spiciness emerges at the backend. It's that simple.

The taste is of course dominated by raspberry, but there is a cider like quality as well. The beer sort of ranges from being a cider to a soda or a dry brut style wine. Really interesting to drink with the intense carbonation alongside the dryness.

Overall, a tasty treat, but like a cider or wine, something I'd drink rarely and probably more during the spring and summer months.

a beautiful clean ruby red pour with 2 fingers of pink colored head, slow dissipation, and lots of lacing left behind. i have never seen a lambic so bright and vibrant. traces of wheat are still recognizable over all the delicious smelling berries.. not sure what elderberry is supposed to smell like, but what i smell is wonderful, definitely getting raspberry as well. wow, this is a wonderful flavor in a beer.. almost tastes like children's medicine but very subtle-like.. a sweetness from the malt and fruit, lots of tart and acids from the berries.. just wonderful really. the only thing i can compare it to is new glarus raspberry tart, but i don't remember it being this tart. it's been a year or so - i may need to refresh my mind. medium body, medium carbonation - tart and refreshing.

this is a wonderful fruit lambic.. not too much of a hit on the wallet either, this could be a nice treat once in a while. definitely pick this up and give it a shot.

From the bottle, it pours a hazy light pinkish amber with a light pink head. Light scent of raspberry and malt. The mouth gets some tartness to go along with the sweetish flavor.

Pours a nice slightly hazy reddish color with pink head. Raspberries, a light funk, some oak, and sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with lingering raspberry fruity notes.

Amber reddish color with a thick two finger head with good retention and leaving laces.
Nice predominant aroma of raspberries with a Lambic tartness. Hints of caramel malt and wood.
Intense sweet taste of ripped raspberries with a clear tartness base. Occasionally funky. Hints of lemon, soap, sweetener and oak. Dry and acid aftertaste.
Medium body with low carbonation with tiny bubbles.
It is just overly sweet (why the hell they even added sweetener?). Though, it should be a good pairing with desserts.
