This was a must try with all the talk about this one. It pours with a red hue and has big notes of raspberries. The mouthfeel drives the heavy fruit flavor along with the base of a big ABV. Nice to try.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample. The beer is a clear amber color with a white head of foam. The aroma has dark fruits like raspberries and blackberries and sweee pie filling. The taste is very sweet and fruity. Lots of booze character and a mild burn on the finish. A little too drinkable for the alcohol. Big body and lower to medium carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle: This one pours a red tinged clear amber color. There was about no head or lacing to it. The aroma is nice. Some raspberries with a little tartness to them. The taste is quite good. Tart raspberries with a nice ale backing them up. You don’t even notice the alcohol until its too late!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at WWT. Reddish brown with short lasting head. Raspberry jelly, dough, strawberries, hoerenkots, caramel. Then some rotten strawberries come through. Taste is quite sweet with an alcoholic bitterness. Full bodied with lots of alcohol, bit too much alcohol for me.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ WWT IV, courtesy of me!! Pours a clear pinkish beer with a small light purple head on top. Aroma of cassis, forest fruits and light barrel notes. Flavor is slightly sour, light alcoholic, loads of sweet red fruits and loads of alcohol. Aftertaste is sweet and boozu... a bit disappointing and too strong.
