WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Raspberry Wine/Ale - sweet, bubbly and tart!
Interested in the "Kriek" style of Belgian and Dutch Lambic fruit beers, this was the first I tried and I was ready for anything! Bottled with a heavy cork and wire fastener, it requires a corkscrew to open, popping loudly in a very wine-like way. The scent of raspberries is very noticeable, a pale foaming head over a purple-magenta cider-like but complex brew. It's sweet, but not too sweet, raspberry-jam aroma with a slightly tart-sour undercurrent. Perhaps a lovely dessert beer!
I did not like this beer. Much better and cheaper fruit beers are available in Australia.
