On tap at Bailey’s, PDX. Murky orange shade with almost no head at all. Aroma is best described as perfumey and fruity. On the tongue it conjures up a bright, fruity candied raspberry and orange taste. Slightly sticky sweet on the palate. Put me down as a fan.

Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Fruity, with berries and grapes, light oaky woody notes, and fruit juice. Surprisingly not too sweet for the amount of fruit flavors that come through. Good stuff.

Rated this 5 days ago at the brewery. 2 1/2 oz sample. The way the guy at the brewery was talking I thought this was going to be a sour ale. Has an old gold hue under a weak little head. Fruity nose. It’s lightly tart with an alcohol burn. Just okay.

raspberry belgian yeast esters makes sweet raspberry. Light pinot noteas a little wood. Pleasant understated. Amber pour light bubbly head. Nice raspberry woody wine sweet estery belgoan yeast. Raspberries in the finish. Light fruit and wood dry and linger on the palate. Subtle but really damn enjoyable. Light alcohol in finish at times a little bread grain notes as well as really enjoyable.

Tap @ Portland Fruit Beer Fest... Poured golden with a thin head. This was pleasant, but not overwhelming. Wine-like barrel notes, light fruits, and some sweetness. Herbal, earthy, mild palate. Quite drinkable.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 28, 2008
On tap at the Fort George brewery. Served, I believe, in a pinot noir glass. Very interesting. This brew took on the color of the berries used...light raspberry hue with a dense white head. Aroma is tart with a subtle woodsy character. Flavor is of freshly picked berries, can definitely pick up the pinot, oak, and vanilla. Very delicate, unique, and worth a try!!!

On tap at the Bier Stein, Eugene. Glad I was able to try this, as I almost passed it up! Totally unexpected too! Pours a slightly hazed golden amber with the hint of the color raspberry. A mild amount of little bubbles help create a white rim around the top. Mild berry aroma intertwined with a faint oaky pinot hint! The flavor is absolutely delightful in a very delicate way...starts with a sour raspberry flush with hints of sweet malts. The fairly dry and somewhat carbonated body keeps these flavors running until a bite of sour oak and fermenting berry comes to take a swift kick in your palate! TART, TART, and lightly tart. Slight vanilla tannins, wood, light funk, and dry pinot are all present and all very powerful - but blended together well! The finish is dry and lingers of the sour notes in the beer. This was (and is right now) a really nice surprise! And by god...a fruit beer this good?? No way ;) ...

On tap at Bailey’s in Portland, OR--Poured a cloudy amber-bright orange body with a swirling whitish head. Massively floral and fruity nose with lots of complexity. Dry tannins across the back of the tongue and a new fruity life unfolded with each quaff. A truly magnificent beer. Awesome!
