2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle labeled as Raspberry Barleywine Style Ale courtesy of BMan1113VR. Clear light orange with a pink tint. Little head to be found. Sweet smell. Raspberry is so apparent. Taste is of tart berries with a finish that disappears. Flavor is difficult to tongue and doesn’t sit well at all. An interesting idea but not balanced well.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle marked as Berkshire Raspberry Barleywine via a trade with cletus. Pours with a fading tan head over a hazy amber hued body. Aroma of real raspberries, all the way down to the bitter seeds, caramel and a bit harsh. Taste reminds me a lot of a low ABV version of DFH Fort. Lots of raspberry with a very bitter finish. Medium carbonation.
