3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Jacs. Unfiltered red body. Big white head. Really pleasant natural raspberry aroma. Big raspberry flavors, dominant aspect of the beer. Fruit beer all the way, but has that Tripel Golden ale feel underneath. A monster of a raspberry beer. Not enough malt depth or subtlety to really be ranked in the top tier. Solid beverage.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours very clear light red/pink with thin white head. Aroma is muted but has some Belgian and fruit notes. Taste is sour, but not in a good way. Definitely can taste the raspberry with a mild Belgian yeast flavor. Not my favorite fruit Belgian ale.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
"Took a while to open up and really let the fruit shine. A sweet leaning belgian golden with a pretty hefty body. At first the fruit, especially in the nose, was a bit overshadowed, but it came out and while still mostly sweet, added a slight tartness to the suagry spicy base. Not bad."

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a deep, rich purple-pink with a lot of visible carbonation; the head is a very faint pink, high and lacy, with a very large grain. Nose is fresh raspberries, lemon, bready/biscuity grain, and a slight minty or herbal note. An intense bouquet and burst of raspberries on the tongue, but without any sweetness; the backbone is pure golden ale, with hoppy bitterness and phenolic tightness. Finish is long and fruity -- but again, no sweetness. A nice balance of fruit and tart and Belgian intensity.
