COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Belgian style ale is like our Belgian Tripel but we threw in a little summer twist —“a raspberry twist!” We ferment this beer with a classic Belgian yeast strain which results in a crisp, champagne-like ale. We add 240 pounds of fresh raspberry puree at the end of the fermentation to give it a tart and dry finish.

22 oz bottle. Pours burnt orange with a dark fruit aroma. Sweet red raspberries up front. A little overpowering on the sweetness. Well hidden alcohol. Not a bad beer, just too sweet.

On tap at Special Brews on 2/5. Pours a pinkish yellow amber with a small white head that leaves light lacing. Smells of wheat, Belgian yeast, coriander and raspberry. Tastes of the same things in the smell with a spicy peppery back end. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation and a slightly dry finish. Pretty good fruit forward Belgian tripel.Nice balance of flavors. They should bottle this.

Bottle:   Dark dirty straw, thick and lumpy, slight pinkish or reddish hue, frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Raspberry syrup and strong mealy notes.   Slight wheatiness.   Somewhat of a hot artificial Raspberry start.   Warming, almost burns a bit going down.   Some mountain shrub like notes as well.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finishes with a strong mealiness, a bit wheaty, artificial Raspberry, and small mountain shrub like brushiness.   Can be a little difficult to drink with its heat.   Drinks as if its more than 8%!

22. Pours a slightly hazy medium amber with slight rubied overtones. Lasting creamy tan head. Decent lace. Slightly synthetic nose, smells a little like nice fresh dusty fruit but not quite purely so. Phenols knocking around for a sure, a little peppery spice. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Dust, raspberry syrup, caramel and a little white pepper on the mid palate. Long sticky raspberry finish.

Tap @ Bailey’s Taproom... Poured a light orange with a white head. Not much of the raspberry in the aroma, had a touch of the fruit but mostly soft with yeast notes. I thought the raspberries played nicely with the clove and yeast characteristics of the style. A little grainy, but way in the background and led to a little alcohol in the finish.

On tap at Bailey’s Taproom. Glowing gold body, soft red hue to it, tall white smooth head. Big fruity nose, soft of sweet like a jolly rancher candy. Very mild tartness in the finish. Esters are muted and the carbonation is soft, letting the sweetness of the raspberry to come through, sadly I don’t really care for the flavor, sort of fake and candy like.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 6, 2008
Tap at Brouwers. I thought it had an aroma that was ridiculously similar to the raspberry Mamba candy with some alcohol in the back end. Pours a reddish tone with a decent thin head that lasted a while. Flavor initially is of a generic tripel with strong yeasty spice and some sweetness. This is followed by a sweet raspberry puree kind of thing that comes on strong. The finish is pretty hot and combined with the raspberry, it creates a medicinal effect that detracted strongly from this beer. Medium carbonation, but just too hot and cough syrupy for me.
