Great for what it is, a fruit beer. If your looking for a beer with fruit, go elswhere, but for a dessert beer, this is pretty good. Actually gonna try mixing it with Dogfish’s Indian Brown for a rasberry brown ale.

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.

Bottle @ WWT IV. Hazy brown color, small off-white head. Smell and taste are heavy and strong: alcohol, sweetness, raspberry, a touch of hops. Medium body and carbonation. Quite good, though it doesn’t need this much alcohol imo.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2006 bottle thanks to Gibson. Pours a cloudy orange with no head. The aroma is raspberry seed and booze. Medium mouth with very sweet raspberry syrup, booze is very strong with this one with the sweetness a little overbearing.

(bottle - 750 ml - 2005 vintage) Been holding onto this one for a while so I wasn’t sure how it would’ve held up. Murky red pour with a puffy white head. Aroma still has some good sweetness to it. Flavor starts off with a bit of stale raspberry but opens up as it goes on. Still has some raspberry to it with a lightly tart finish. Held up nicely.

Many thanks to Kappldav123 for sharing this bottle! Clear red amber with a lasting off-white head. The aroma is fresh raspberry. Surprisingly there is no alcohol in the aroma.

Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass deep golden, a bit oily, alcoholic and fruity aroma. Starts very strong, warming, quite alcoholic, fiery. Fruity notes in the background, but the alcoholic notes are much stronger and more present. Finish warming, malty, still fiery-alcoholic. Nice experience but not an every day beer.
