Great amber/ orange/ pinkish color, nice head. Belgian yeast, cloves, citrus rind. Tart, unripened raspberries. Not a sweet beer, mild fruitiness. Tart, biscuity, spicy Belgian with a long dry finish. Different.... Raspberries are not overpowering like you might think..

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich deep ruby and brown coloured body with a thinnish, single centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of pure raspberries, icing sugar, alcohol, figs, raisins and a lot of roasted malt - nice and very strong fruit smelling throughout. Medium to Full-bodied; Rich deep raspberry flavour at first with a deep flavour of figs, earth, chocolate and even a good earthy malt quality as well. Aftertaste shows all the sour raspberry flavour you may expect and a very rich sweetness, malty character and even some subdued roasty and earthy characteristics that you may not expect to find. Overall, the complexity is there, the sourness is there and the very rich fruit flavour coupled with alcohol is definitely there - a great beer and I’m happy to have sampled this! I sampled this snifter on draught at Mellow Mushroom in Denver, Colorado on 08-June-2014 for US$6.00.

Bottle courtesy of Andrew shared with Andrew and Brendan. Pours a deep, clear ruby red with nice pinkish, white lacing. Aroma is alcohol heat and raspberries. Mouthfeel is slightly hot with notes of raspberry candies - twiddled comes to mind - and raspberry medicine. The alcohol burn takes away from the palate.
