intresting beer, i tried to get one of my non-beer friends to taste this, but he only does lambics (flemish alesís donít count). Great aroma and flavor, very strong of rasberry. But other then obvious still have a nice laid back flavor and sat well.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2011 A really interesting effort and a beer I hope they make again some day. +++Sampled on draft at the brewery. This one really sounded interesting. It looked great - Dark brown color with just a hint of red. Small tan head. Very strong sweet raspberry aroma. The flavor was tart and smooth. The fruit flavor was a bit weak and vague. The tartness was a bit overwhelming and keeps this one from being a great beer but it was a nice beer none the less.

Light sour raspberries at the beginning followed by sweetness (almost like a nutbrown ale), the two flavors interacted well. Body was a little thin. Tasted great with the chocolate mousse cake. (tasted this at lunch prior to the PA Microbrewer Fest at Penn)

This is a dark cloudy brown. The aroma is full of ripe raspberries with a little caramel malt beneath that. The flavor is light, but the malt steps out from under the fruit a bit.

TAR (2514) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Draft: Tawny auburn. Crackling, dusty-white head. Sweet malts in the aroma coupled with chocolate and fresh raspberries. Husky pale malt, raisin, and mild roast suggestions. Soft, minimal carbonation. The tartness is evident, but composed, and slowly threads its way into a blend of toasted pale malts and bittersweet chocolate. Raspberries are merely an afterthought to the pummeling malt richness. Finish is sweet, malty and astringent with underlying notes of chocolate and juicy raspberries. Strange mix of roast and burnt chalk linger. Not bad, but would be much better without all the acrid, salty flavors detracting from the tasty malts.

Hmm, interesting. Aroma is decent, slightly acidic with plenty raspberries coming through. Appearance is good, murky brown-red. Taste starts tart and fruity but loses its complexity about halfway through the sip and meanders around your mouth feeling dazed and somewhat malty until a disengenuous chalky finish. Thanks to cb and TAR for a great night out! Lord knows I need as much social encouragement as possible!
