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.
