Has the taste of real raspberries, but still a little bit too sweet. Bit flat too.

The beer is lightish orange with just a touch of pink hue to it. It’s quite cloudy. The head is fizzy and white. It puffs up a whole bunch but then dies down to nothing in relatively short order. The aroma is fairly washed out and flat. What flavors are knocking about are just ok. Phenolic character. Some medicinal, band-aid stuff. Decent raspberry note, a bit syrupy but not bad. A little bit of simple malt sweetness alongside a light lactic yogurty note. Unfortunately, the taste is plain old awful. Unpleasant phenolic action, like dried up cough medicine and multivitamins. Weird artificial syrupy fruit flavor. Utterly out of place tannic, grape skin bitterness. Mildly to moderately sour. Long cloying finish. Fizzy carbonation. Not as sticky as the flavor suggests but I very much mean that as faint praise. This is a bad beer. The flavors start off fairly off-putting and then clash against each other to form a cacophony of sweet and sour garbage.

Well, a belgian fruit beer. pours a hazy pink. bottle conditioned 3 finger pink head. smells like a wheat beer with fruit syrup added.The taste, well, it’s not that bad. sweet, soda like with raspberry fake syrup. it’s still a good mouthfeel and certainly a nice summer beer. then again, it’s belgian so 8% is a low degrees for fruit :)

ineedbeer (1368) - Oakland, California, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Aroma is very Saison like with a nice grainy, bready note. Some light stone fruit, citrus and medium light raspberry. Moderate phenolics, peppery but also some plastic. Pours a hazy copper orange with a red hue and a large, frothy, pink head that steadily recedes into itself. Moderate lacing and small legs. Flavor is slightly to moderately tart with some light citrus and medium light raspberry syrup notes. A medium grain note with some light bread and cracker. Some syrupy sugar notes in the finish, but not sticky. Medium bitterness. Less phenolics than in the aroma with only a slight plastic note. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringnecy and low alcohol warmth. Overall, this beer has an identity crisis. It?s sour but rather sweet and syrupy. It?s malt profile is more like a Saison. It barely has any fruit and there is a lot of phenolics.

Pours hazy light pink, very delicate taste, slightly sour, fruity, you can taste the champagne yeast in it. Not convincing: looks too much like something brewed to please a big public of people who quite certainly don’t like beer...
