Raspberry-like aroma. Deep wine-like red color. Winey-juicy, framboise-esqu flavor. A bit like juicy-juice.

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.

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.
