3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. 12 oz. Pours a light ruby with a tightly, bubbled, thiny laced off-white head. Cool trailing lace throughout. Aroma of raspberry, wheat, pomegranate, pepper, and lemon zest. Medium bodied with an agressively carbonated, lively, tangy mouthfeel. Flavors of pilsner, lemon, and very faint raspberry tart in the finish. This beer reminds me so much of snyders honey mustard and onion nibs in aroma especially after it warms up and you swirl it a bit. Very good fruit beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a Duvel tulip from a 2012 release 12 ounce bottle.
A: Pours a clear rose color but looks a slightly red tinted hazy amber with a thin white head.
S: Lots of Belgian yeast here, ripe banana and cloves with a hint of tarty raspberries.
T: Mostly a tarty raspberry throughout with minor pepper spices hinted at throughout. This reminds me a bit of a rose champagne.
M: Crisp light bodied beer, has the body of a champagne.
O: I like this beer more than the ratings indicate, it’s a nice fruity, slightly tarty beer with a nice texture to it.
