Tmoney99 (12036) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2014
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.

GABF 2013. Pours a hazy orange appearance with a light tan head. Spritzy, raspberry, blackberry, lemon, honey aroma. Well carbonated. Juicy berry, raspberry, a bit spicy hoppy flavor. Super easy to drink. Fun beer.

crossovert (9503) - Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Light, tart, fruity, effervescent, slight malt. A good summer slugger but not much more.

arminjewell (8672) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Pour on tap at Crunchy’s, clear pink pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of bread, biscuit, slight fruity notes with a hint of spice, touch of yeast into a bit of raspberry. Taste was a mix of bread, biscuit, white fruit into raspberry, touch of grain into a bit of earth, finishing fairly sweet.

deyholla (8335) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 7, 2015
On tap at Maduro. Pours a near clear amber with an off white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of raspberry with some sweet grains and a dry champagne note. Flavor starts with a light raspberry note with a strong grain and champagne

BVery (8056) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Tap at Busters. Orange pour with a small head. Red berries and melon in the nose and taste. Crisp and effervescent palate. Yum.

phaleslu (7600) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2013
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 I’d expected. Dry and malty, with medium carbonation and a medium-level mouthfeel. Good beer, fun concept.

b3shine (6749) - Indiana, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Draft to taster at Eccentric Cafe. Looks solid; a mostly transparent orange with white head that dissipates into lacing fairly quickly. Smells doughy and spicy. Tastes like it smells, only better, with some Belgian yeast notes. Not getting much raspberry though. Solid on the palate with a slightly tart mouthfeel. Decent beer.

TheAlum (6373) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2013
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.
