3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From notes. On tap at the Eccentric Café on June 13. The pour is a reddish gold with a minimal head and lace. The aroma is a little strange. There is a maltiness, maybe yeastiness?, that overpowers the fruitiness here. The fruitiness is on the front, but then just gets overpowered. The flavor is more sweet and fruity, but carries that strange maltiness with it. The mouth feel is thin and slick, with a really sweet malty aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample. Poured a clear reddish color with an average off-white fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sweet berry and yeast aroma. Medium body with a tingly texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy tart berry flavor with a medium to heavy berry tart finish of moderate to long duration. Interesting beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark brownish red pour with white thin head and lots of lively bubbles rising. Aroma of sour belgian yeast, melon, lemon, tart berries. Surprisingly low carbonation, medium body, finishes pretty clean. The raspberry and sparkling ale are both evident in the flavor but it works well together too. The belgian yeasts are sour and taste bitter, making the tart of the raspberry ale more subtle. Somewhat astringent, cough drop like flavor on finish. Decent to have one every once in a while but not as good as the sum of its parts.
