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

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.

Poured from 375mL corked & caged bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: nice amber-pink hue with a very light haze and not much in the way of apparent effervescence. Head is two thick fingers of creamy ivory-pink foam leaving a thick lace as it dissipates. Quite nice.

Smell: strong raspberry aroma, but not overly sweet. Not much in the way of tartness, but quite nice otherwise.

Taste: lightly sweet with a good raspberry flavor. Raspberry character is a bit less intense than in the aroma, which is welcome. Sweetness balances the fruitiness, but again, not much in the way of a wild character or sourness. Still, I really like the fruit element.

Mouthfeel: light with a moderate carbonation. Not creamy, but decent enough for the style.

Overall: I really like the fruit flavor accomplished here. If you're into framboise, it's definitely worth trying.

A-Pours a pinky, reddish amber color. Big, giant head with pink tints. Lots and lots of lacing.

S-A bit musty and quite sweet. Sweet raspberry. Like a mix between a Cantillon and a Lindemans framboise. The label says it's got artificial flavor in it, so that's not awesome. It smells fairly artificial.

T-The flavor is decently artificial but it has some fairly organic qualities. Sweet raspberries. I feel like I can grind the sugary taste in between my teeth. Strawberries too. Not a start as I want. I equate raspberries with tartness and it's sweetness makes me think more of strawberries.

M-Soft carbonation. A bit fuller than I expected. Sticky.

O/D-Like a bridge between Lindemans and Drie Fonteinen and Cantillion. Definitely closer to the former. Don't love the 'artificial flavor' thing here. That's why this is a $6 for a 375ml as opposed to a $20 375ml from the big boys.

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.
