Bottle. Poured red with an orange hue and a white head. Aroma was full of a sweet berry, somewhere between a blueberry and a raspberry. Flavor was quite sweet with berry flavor but lacking something to balance the sweetness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Think unsoured Framboise. The color pinkish orange and cloudy.
The smell has creamy malt elements, Mild sweet nose.
The flavor is sweet with a fruitiness that I associate with raspberries (what does a Roggen Berry taste like?). Unlike a typical Framboise, there is no corresponding tartness to provide balance. Moderate body with a soft level of carbonation. Moderately sweet finish.

Dan’s Bachelor Party Extended Weekend Rating #33 of 90. Cask at Arcadia in Battle Creek. Pours bright raspberry red. Mild carbonation, fairly smooth, fruity clean finish. Refreshing to say the least...and I believe I did.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Hopcat in GR...sampled off of my wife’s glass. Pour was a bright, almost neon burgundy color with a large pinkish-purple head. Looks like it will be very sweet but ultimately eases that notion away. Nose is all wheat and blueberry with not much else to mention. Body is crisp, flavor has a very nice light wheat component with the blueberries complimenting nicely. A very good, simple, sessionable brew.
