3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft pour at GTMW 2013. Pours a hazed amber with a small white head. Once again, my late-festival notes are shaky. "Good fruited Belgian." Thanks for that insight. Sweet malts, with the raspberry not as prominent as Iíd expected. Dry and malty, with medium carbonation and a medium-level mouthfeel. Good beer, fun concept.

On tap at Maduroís pre-GTMW party - Pours amber with a thin white head. Nose is dry raspberry, mineral, some honey bready malt beneath a little spicy mouthfeel. Taste is dry raspberry, a bit of bitter, unripe fruit, and a touch of honey bready malt. Real effervescent with a light fluffy body.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Maduro pre-GTMW party 2013. Filtered copper-orange body, big foamy off-white head. Very mellow, delicate beer. Light cloudy raspberry Wit maybe, but has some interesting spicy yeast tones. Not unlike Rubeaus, with lots of real raspberry flavor. Comes off quite light to me after the BB 9000 I had before it. Clearly has some depth though. An OK beverage, but not such a phenomenal beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft on tap at Maduro (Madison, WI). Pre GTMW 2013. Pours a nice deep orange glowing hue, firm haziness is pleasant, deep orange amber glow with a frothy whitish head atop. Dies to a filmy layer, laces ok. Aromas are gentle spice, grain and straw meet a bit of pulpy raspberry. Light juiciness, mellow earthy hops, bit of spice and cool malty sweetness. Initial is lighter end of the fold, well carbonated and effervescent with lively yeast, dryness, some raspberry skin. Some gentle pulpy sweetness, a touch seedy with firm bready malts, lively carbonation and gentle yeast. Bready malt, straw. Middle is gentle sweetness, touches of fruit. A firmer dry and carbonated backend, gentle spice, lingering berry. Clean yet a bit strong on the ABV. Some dryness, gentle spice and yeastiness. Mellow warmth is apparent. Like a raspberry stong Belgian, a bit warm but decent. Nose was nice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Maduro, pre-GTMW. Iím a sucker for fruit beers. This is a fun one and at nearly 8%, one that can cause trouble. Big raspberry nose and taste. Smooth, different and good. Some Belgian spice and malt comes through.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at 2013 MBG Summer Festival. Aroma is mostly raspberry with a hint of spicy yeast. Taste is moderately sweet. Lots of fizzy raspberry, like sparkling raspberry wine I guess. Spicy yeast finish, very dry. Not bad but definitely not my kinda beer.
