    Pours a red-tinged amber with a mauve-tan head. Yeasty aroma has a decided raspberry overtone. Raspberry dominates the flavor, but not too much, allowing malt and yeast notes to take center stage. Smooth texture has good fizz and firmness. You like raspberries as much as I do, down the hatch!

    Early 2012 bottle. Pours a cherry red with a 3 finger head that goes down fairly quick. Carbonation seems to stay in the center of the glass in a vortex. Aroma is very fruity and tart but almost seems manufactured to me. Taste is sweet and sour plus a tad tart. Unfortunately it is very metallic. Fruit is too light. Not a good beer.

    Purchased at the Hunger Mountain Coop in Montpelier, VT. Pours a red-amber colour with a slight pink frothy head and decent creamy lace. Grainy nose (kind of weird) with the raspberries and soft yeast. Medium-bodied with just a liitle tart. The taste is a little better with some mild sourness and good sweet raspberry juices. This is a great fruit lambic with a low alcohol that is much better than most of this style (that are too sweet to compensate for the low alcohol).

    pours a bright, deep red, it has a medium-small pink head steadily shrinking to a foamy ring and wisps. The aroma is nice raspberry (and berry in general), dark bread, light yeasty funkiness. The taste is lightly sweet-tart raspberry, hints of underlying lambic yeasty character. It's great and enjoyable with just enough of a hint of complexity and lambic rusticness under the fruit. Another excellent example of this style.

    A mahogany colored beer. The head is small, frothy and pink. It doesn't last very long. Disappears leaving no lacing. The nose and tasting of this medium bodied, effervescent beer is all about raspberries

    Sampled on 7/9/2011. This fruit lambic pours a medium reddish brown color from a 330ml bottle. Small to medium sided, slightly pinkish thin foamy head, with quick lasting retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity, sweet and raspberry. A medium bodied fruit lambic. The malts are fruity, raspberry and sweet. The hops are herbal. Decent carbonation. For a lambic its A little on the sweet side and a touch artificial tasting. Some tart, not a lot of funk. Decent and drinkable but not very typical of the style. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet with some tartness.

    i'll stop well short of saying this is a great beer, because it's not. but i am a bit surprised at the lack of love. the raspberry wasn't as evident as a Ras Tart from new Glarus, or a Lindemans, and comparing to the best ras lambocs, this one will fall a little short...but a 2.9?! on RB too. I won't pay another $5 but it was nowhere near that bad. pours pinkish with a fluffy quick-gone head. feel was a bit thin at first but meshed well with the flavor as the beer opened. the aroma was juuuust a touch weaker than i'd hoped, but still nice. mostly raspberries and oak, more of that in the flavor with an ever so slight tartness that could have been more pronounced. if this were a readily available sixer for <$10, I might go back every so often, but like i said, not at the premium price.

    Reddish amber colour, with pinkish head. Aroma is raspberry and strawberry along with some sweetish sourness. Flavour is the same, but more to the sweet than the sour. Wellbalanced, and quite refreshing. Not really an exciting lambic though.

    This beer pours deep red with no head to speak of. The aroma is all raspberry. The mouthfeel is medium weight with low to medium carbonation. The flavor is very sweet, slightly tart, like a very sweet concord wine. This is my first lambic, and while it is a nice flavor it tastes more like a wine cooler than a beer to me. As always I will rerate as I become more accustomed to the style.
