750 ml. 2015 version. Pours a clear and copper/berry red with a thin film of creamy bubbles. Nose is lightly tart, fresh berries and sweet red wine with hints of minerals, spice and vanilla. Taste is the same mix. This dessert beer has a medium body and is to the sweet side, but not too sticky. Low-medium carbonation is a big plus.

Testad på Linköping beer expo. Doftar och smakar fyllig hallonsaft med lite maltiga toner. Mycket god, om man gillar söta fruktiga öl vill säga.

2015 rerelease. Pours a clear ruby purple with fluffy pink head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of big tart raspberries and a hint of Belgian spicy esters. Taste is big on the fruit,sweet but not overly so, odd back end I can?t place. Quick finish with a dryness that convers up the booze and the sweetness. Pretty solid, but kind of like rubeus plus.

strong raspberry flavor to start with that winey flavored finish. super smooth to drink, pours reddish orange in color with a thin cream head. nose of raspberries and grapes. dangerous to drink, the booze is well hidden. had a bottle at jerrys in andersonville.

2015 Bottle shared by Niall73, thanks! Slightly hazy red colour, pink head. Aroma of candy, raspberry. Flavour is light sour, raspberries, medium sweet, fruity, it’s actually quite nice. Compares with Kasteel Rouge imho, in terms of quality and high ABV. Good.

Brandy like pour with a few white whisps on top, fairly cloudy. Aroma of fresh raspberries and slightly soapy Belgian yeast, some musty hay too. Carbonation a bit lively, oily mouthfeel, puckery dry finish. Taste follows the nose, a bit sweet but also slightly tart. Maybe good for dessert.

If the two things you love in the world are sweetness and raspberries, this beer will be like heaven on earth to you. It’s very slightly cloudy red w/ a white head. This all raspberries and is oversweet and strong. Kind of an imperial version of a New Glarus fruity beer. It has a pretty nice taste to it overall but could really use some tartness to balance the sweet raspberry taste.
