look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Best before: 2/20/15.

Pours a murky dark crimson with a foamy reddish-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with raspberry, raspberry juice, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet and sour raspberry and raspberry juice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some nice sour raspberry characteristics that shine through the artificial sweetener used in this one.

Serving type: bottle.

375ml corked and caged bottle into Hill Farmstead stemware. Shared by schen9303.

Pours a rich, light pink and cream colored head with good retention. Beer is a clear dark red-purple. Lacing is thick and layered. Really great.

Nose is sweet raspberries and a ton of sugar. This one is obviously intentionally sweetened.

Flavor is of sweet raspberry puree. Slightly seedy and a little tart with a crisp finish that's got some bite. Decent.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Foamy in the mouth and prickly going down. Accented finish with a slightly syrupy aftertaste.

Not bad for a sweetened lambic. At least it's not cloying. Simple and pretty enjoyable.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is clear reddish amber in color and has a light amount of carbonation. It poured with a finger high pink head that took a long time to die down and left lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of raspberries are present in the nose.
T: Very much like the smell, the taste is dominated by flavors of raspberries and has a slight amount of sweetness.
M: It feels light-,bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This lambic has nice aromas and flavors of raspberries that don't taste artificial or that sweet. I would consider getting this beer again.

375ml Bottle from the Ottawa LCBO for $4

Appearance - Burgundy colour with an average size fizzy/frothy pinkish white head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Raspberries, citric

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, citric notes and raspberries. There is also sugary sweet candy flavour and it ends with a lightly tart aftertaste.

Overall - A pretty decent brew that is easily available to me. Maybe a touch too much like a swedish berry candy. Just comes across a little too sweet and a little artificial tasting.
