2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled (BB 04/2009)
Clear pinky-copper color, big cloudy white head. Aroma is not very strong: candy lemonade or lavander and citrus. Same kind of herbal lemonady rasberry and rosewater flavor. Plastic, artifical. Fizzy. Quickly vanishing aftertaste. Odd brew.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Publick House in Boston. Was highly recommended by the waitress, but I wish I got something else. Light blonde body with a flarge rothy head, Aroma of spice, citrus. Flavor comes through a bit at first but just dies on the finish. Just completely disappears. Really odd beer.

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours the color of cream soda witha purple tint, which kinda doesn’t look right. Slightly cloudy. There is a ton of foam on the pour. Must be a Belgium. Aroma is like cherry cough syrup. Flavor is bitter, and fruity, and a little alcohol. It burns a little going down. Good lacing. Full flavored finish. Decent lacing.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Starts off as a gusher. Frothy, pink tinged head. Murky, peachy-pink body. Good lacing on the head. Aroma is pretty nice too with raspberry, yeast, rotting fruits and sugar. Now the bad: it is undrinkably salty and very yeast forward. Mouth feel is dry, dry, dry. A complete drain pour, that started off looking and smelling fine. A brewing mistake? A crappy bottle? Bad recipie? I am not sure, but the stuff in my glass was horrible.

Bottle, 6%. Raspberry aroma. Moldy raspberry flavour. No fruit added according to label. Dark golden colour. Small white head. Watery with unpleasant bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
So this brewery really likes labels that look like they are from the 70s. Was I surprised to see that this is not an old bottle at all. To me it seems like they are going for a "Trappist" appeal. It pours with a strong and foamy head. It sticks to the sides and never really dissipates. The body is clear amber with a light pink hue. Aroma is burnt malts, light rotting fruit, and faint champagne sweetness. Taste is light rotting fruit sweetness with a stale white bread finish. A lightly bubbly feel. Bottom line: looks nice but everything else is unimpressive.
11.2oz bottle, best before 2008/01/08.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cL bottle, thanks to MiP. Pours slight hazy orange with a white head. Raspberry aroma, slight acidic and sweet. Flavour is raspberry and slight acidic flavour with a dry malt base. Ends with a light acidity into the finish with a light lingering berry note.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. Nice pale amber colour with huge fluffy white head. Leaves good lace. Aroma is a lot of red berries, especially red currant. Some raspberries also. Flavour is berries, fruits, some earth and sourness. Quite dull and mouldy aftertaste. I’m not a big fan of this one.
