750mL thanks to noodleuser. Hazy gold pour with a weaker white head. No lace really. Sweet strawberry nose with mild raspberry jam. Taste is sweeter, minerally, pretty cloying with sweet strawberry. Tangy over carbonated palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TreborWhip (393) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Bottle pours greenish-yellow with virtually no head. Looks, smells, and taste like a sparkling white wine. Take away the bubbles and it is like something between a Reisling and a Gerwerstraminer.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 1, 2011
THOUGHTS: Nice beer. Refreshing summer thirst quencher. Would probably be a little better with a little less raspberry. It was fairly complex, but the raspberry dominated the more subtle flavors and aromas. Good saison, great fruit beer. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a light, pinkish orange with a large, white head that mostly diminished, but left excellent lacing. The aroma was fairly weak. It had light to moderate spicy and dusty yeast; slight doughy yeast; both sweet and tart raspberries; and lemon. The initial flavor was lightly sweet, lightly acidic and slightly bitter; while the finish was lightly sweet, moderately sour and light to moderately acidic with an average to long duration. There was raspberry, lemony citrus, a little pepper, tart raspberries, lots of yeast, spicy yeast, dusty yeast, slight funk, sour raspberry, sour lemon, and sweeter raspberries. Everything blended well. The light to medium body was a little creamy and then rather dry with lightly fizzy carbonation and a dry and slightly alcoholic finish.

Leafs93 (2049) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Pours amber with a redish tinge, medium white head. Aroma of raspberry, grass and earthyness. Taste is tart into a muted dry finish. Overall this is more refreshing then comlex, i was hoping for more.

pineypower (2980) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - OCT 15, 2011
Pours out a light pinkish copper color with a huge champagne colored head. Aroma is lots of sweet/tart raspberry. Taste is raspberry, some light tartness, grains, and a little spice in there also. Something about this just doesn’t work for me though.

lightly hazy amber with a white head that has the faintest of pink hues, lasting head… lots of raspberry aroma, not tart, but not sweet either, light spiciness, medium bodied, a little tart, has more of a black cherry flavor than a raspberry flavor as far as I can tell dryer finish, lightly spiced, I don’t get a lot of saison ness from this as the raspberry fruit notes overpower a lot some spice, but not a ton and if its belgian yeast its not that present

750ml from StormKing47 on BA - thanks, dude! Very nice pour, bright orange with pinkish hues, mildest sediment, nice continual bubbles from the bottom and a thick rocky head atop the blood orange. Nose is raspberry pulp initially, so much so that I feared for the beer’s balance, but it settled down into something more fragrant as befits a saison. Light and prickly body, with a hint of tartness and spice making the palate lively. This beer grows on you, with the mild pucker from the fruit blending well with the spicy and very dry finish. Not pitched at the extremes by any measure, the flavors are blended quite well. Surprising and yummy.
