Mild tart raspberry aroma, pours amber with a hint of red, with a huge white head. The raspberry flavor is very pronounced with just a touch of pepper notes in the finish. I’m not picking up much of the lemon, but it may be blending into the raspberry tartness. Light bodied and easy drinking. Personally, the fruit notes are a bit too strong for my tastes, overpowering the saison underneath. If you like fruitier beers, this may be more up your alley.

Taster at beer event. Pours cloudy maroon/orange with a bit of white head. Aroma is raspberry, cotton candy. Taste is sweet (slightly cloying) and pronounced raspberry. I wish the pepper had been more notable. Some of the lemon coming through but not enough to push aside the raspberry. I liked the sweetness but would’ve benefited more from a better balance.

Not bad, really. The tart raspberry makes it taste more like an old Bartles & Jaymes wine cooler rather than a beer. Okay for a change of pace on a hot day.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
4oz pour at the Fare. Aroma is raspberry, cranberry, lemon square, and hay. Pours light pink with soda bubbles and very little head. Taste is faint raspberry but definitely sweet raspberry, lemon zest, and a grainy yeast finish. Very light on the mouth, which is good. Tastes like they watered down some obnoxiously sweet bug juice with a mediocre saison. Not my favorite but there is certainly a time and place.
