3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy orangish brown with a fairly large head, good lacing. Aroma is sweet raspberries and not much else... some sweet malts. Sweet mouthfeel and body, minor tartness. Sweet finish with a slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Simple and straightforward but it gets the job done.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark purplish brown, soft light cream-colored head (pretty fluffy). The smell overwhelms with raspberries and sweet fruit. I was expecting a sour note, but this beer drinks smooth and sweet. Taste is full of old raspberry, apple and strawberry flavors. No real hop character, and the malts are mild if present at all. The body sit heavily on the pallate which is actually quite nice. Kind of like a thin syrup. The alcohol bite gets stronger as the beer warms up but is average at best. Not much going on, but still dangerous to drink with the high ABV %. Very easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a reddish brown, it is very dark with no light coming through leaving a 1in thick tan/red tint in the head. The inital smell is raspberry, alcohal, wheat, sugar, no real hop presence to be found. Starts on the palate a carbonated raspberry juice. As it sits on the palate the alcohal is really present. There is a slgiht bitter hop feel on the palate that finishes rough like a spirit. Decent strong ale could use some more aging to mellow out a bit.

EBF ’06: Nice aroma, comes on like an orgy of raspberries in your mouth, unfortunately, they’re trynig to cover the really mediocre ale they’re with.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours brown with a hint of purple giving you a thought that sourness is to come. Aroma is fruity raspberries and apples. Taste is one dimensional of over the top sour raspberries. This beer is unlike other "fruit" beers where you cant really taste the fruit, because the raspberries are certainly here. Good fruit beer, not too special overall however.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours amber with an off white head. Smells of rasberries and butter. Taste is of rasberries with elements of cane sugar and a hint of raisins. Strong alcohol finish. One of the best offerings from this brewery to date.

22 oz. bottle: Cloudy rusty red color, with a dish fomay white head. Aroma is rasperries on top of barnyard. Flavor is dominated, overly so, by tart raspberries, sourness grows with each sip.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Raspberry jam and fresh cut grass in the somewhat medicinal (alcohol) and sugary sweet aroma. Cloudy, brown with blond tones. Low white head diminishes rapidly to ring. Strong raspberry flavour with lots of jam-like sweetness. Somewhat sour in the finish. Sticky, medium body with strong carbonation that is a bit forceful on the tongue. Moderate alcohol warming. Perhaps just a bit too sweet and cloying. Sampled at Mondial de la Bière 2005.
