Nice light purple tint to to the head which quickly disappeared. Nice raspberry aroma with a faint nailpolish ester. Raspberry jam flavors a little cloying but enough tartness to clean your pallete.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a deep purpley amber with some thin white head. Nose has a lot of berry, jammy, floral, but mostly just a big bouquet of fruit. Flavor is the same, big berry, raspberry, jammy, some candy sugar. Finishes a little sweet. Not as good as their kriek, but nice. A bit too sweet.

Growler pour courtesy of Bill. Pours a deep maroon with no head. Fresh raspberry jam. Lightly tart. Really tasty and drinkable. I was shocked to hear it was 6.5%, it is certainly not noticeable. One of the better fruit beers I’ve had.

Growler sample (notes). Pours a slightly hazy reddish/purple/amber color with a small pinkish head. The aroma was mainly big fresh raspberries; very welcoming. The flavor had a sweet, yet tart raspberry beginning, middle and end. The flavor was good, but seemed like the raspberries were from concentrate, instead of fresh at times. Still pretty good.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Growler. Pours thick magenta toward blood orange red with minimal pink head. Nose is fresh picked raspberries, some earthiness. Tastes rich, thick, with a perfect (not too tart, not fake sweet tasting) raspberry flavor. This is in the top 5 examples of this style I have ever encountered.

Growler. Reddish in color with a small sized head. Raspberries, fruity, and some breadiness. I liked the way the raspberries were done in this one.
