3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at the Michigan Winter Beer Fest, Lansing. Bizarre ruddy orange-pink body, thin off-white head. Zesty raspberry aroma and body, not tart, with strong prickly cereals and grass. Notable alcohol. Sweet but balanced by the bready grains and bitter earthy notes. Much better than their regular Raspberry Ale.

Slight raspberry aroma, but thats about it. This one falls short on body and taste, with nothing more than a thin, acidic flavor.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Mi brewer’s guild fest winter-06- Thanks to Jadoreblanche for sharing her sample with me. Pinkish body that is semi-cloudy, ringed with some white fizz. Sweet raspberry flavours with a smidgen of yeast coming through in the nose, and raspberries in aroma too. Finish is mineral frutiyness with a slightly tart aftertaste. Thin bodied with alcohol shining through. Odd, and interesting.

tasted at Michigan Winter Beer Fest...quite unique appearance, with a cloudy reddish body (almost gem-like) and small white head...aroma is of sweet raspberry, as is the flavor....somewhat grassy finish...decent palate
