Draught (2005) Really enjoyed this. Toned down berry in flavor and aroma with hoppy undertones. Nice copper with a slight purple/redish tinge.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Has a very nice ruby-red body and a good pillow of antique white head. The aroma is all kriek-style fruity syrup, not in the league of Cantillon but more in the league of Lindemanís.... so what did I give a Lindemanís Kriek? Oh, probably a six. Iíll assume itís a six for aroma. The flavour is an odd mix of berry flavours that are muted by some odd cloying detergent crap that is just totally dragging the experience down, man. Somethinís just off in this one, and itís a shame - I was hoping to experience at least a British Columbian version of a mass-produced Belgian Kriek, but instead got a fruity mess that is just all over the place. Iíll still finish my 650ml bottle, though.

Bottle simply says "Berry Ale". Pours a soft amber with a mall layer of foam. Holy diacetyl, batman! Smells just like microwave popcorn! Taste has a faint tartness to it. Again, tons of diacetyl and light cranberry/gooseberry. Decent carb, thin body. Ouch ouch ouch!

7/14/07 On draught at the brewery. Aroma is raspberry bubble gum. Appearance is similar to a regular American amber with a low head. Flavor is a raspberry/sweet malt blend forward, slightly sour, with moderate bittering and no hop character. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a medium/high carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, this does keep some amber character, but itís just not easy drinking enough.

Pretty nice drink! Deep red from the pub, minimal head. Aroma is brisk raspberries. Taste is mostly about the raspberries, which are delicious and taste real. Not syrupy like these beers can be - the raspberries here are about the sour. Enough of a beer background to give it depth and bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber with a fair bit of reddish. Malty raspberry flavour with some hoppyness in there. Raspberry flavour isnít overly strong and fits in there nicely with the other flavours. Was torn between giving it a 13 and a 14.

A nice little maroon color with a fruity taste. Not all that I imagined. A little watery, but it is refreshing and Iím not saying its bad at all. Itís good, especially for 7%
