Amber pour with a tint of reddish notes. Off white head. Berries, wheat, cracker malts. Flavor is berries up front, mostly cherry/rasp notes. A bit muddled but refreshing.

Draft at Baileys Taproom. Aroma of tart cherries and cranberries really raised my hopes. Flavor was very muddled and tame with slight berry notes on a muddled brown ale background. High hopes but still not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Hazy amber-brown in color with a small whitish head. Very nice complex berry aroma, somewhat tart. The flavor is nice and tart with lots of raspberry and some nutty notes. Tasty beer. Medium-bodied with average-plus carbonation. Pretty nice brew.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap. No head. Swells of flowers; almost wine-like. Thin, but sort of oily. Raspberries, cranberries and butter. Very interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the Pine Box. Pours a cloudy dark brown with a scant tan head. Big balsamic nose, youíd think itís mainly lacto if you didnít know the fruit was there. Creamy medium body, soft carb. Dense balsamic profile on the mid-palate; surprisingly little counterpoint of actual fruit notes. Mild tart finish.

Dark amber in color, clear with a thin head. Big sour notes in the nose lots of fruit and light malts backing. Great flavor this was a rich and flavorful sour.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Heavenly luminous caramel sun color makes up for the otherwise lifeless looking appearance. Mildly fruity nose, mostly raspberry. Again, raspberry juice dominates the body. Mouthfeel is smooth, touched by both wheat and a pleasant tartness. Moderate raspberry throughout.

First swig is a little shocking....i do love a fruity beer but whoa man....the overly fruity nature of this beer did grow on me & by the time i finished it - i already had another waiting to go down...for a non-beer drinker, this one is pretty nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at Dog and Pony. Light hazy dark amber/orange/brownish, frothy white head. Aroma of cranberries, butter, toffee. Taste is mild tart berry, toffee and lots of it, almost borders on something like butterscotch, doughy yeasty flavor, dark fruit. Pretty good but kind of odd at the same time. Smooth velvety texture and carbonation.
