On tap at the brewery tasting room. Note this batch was 7.3% a.b.v. It as grapefruit pinnk colour and lacey. It smelled berry, and some citrus. The taste was a nice tartness, with coconut Good drinkability, I call it a beer sangria. Average mouthfeel.

Bright red, cloudy pour with a light pink head. The nose is quite rancid. An odd saurkraut vegetal aroma with a bit of tart cherry as well. Rich and chewy flavour but the tartness is really quite strangeÖ rotted cabbage and vegetables with lots of weird lactic character. Some pomegranite, cherry and cranberry flavour. Canít say Iím a fan of this one.

On tap at Founders. Poured a very murky pinkish orange with a touch of brown. There was minimal head. Flavor full of fruits, cherries, dried apricots, raspberry and a touch of sweet oranges. Flavor had a strong cherry flavor with undertones of apricot, tartness and raspberry.

j12601 (6927) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Growler thanks to my Secret Santa, whose identity I still have not ascertained. I took this to Paulís for a big olí tasting. Pours a cloudy brown with ruby highlights and a thin white head. Aroma is very weak, nothing really stands out. Light oxidized malt, Loads of fruit, tastes like a cherry compote almost, lightly sweet, lots of tannins and a bit of tartness. Finishes up with more cherry skin tannins and a bit of subtle sweetness. Rather tasty.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Growler. Pours a punch maroon like body with a white head. Fruity berries,l raspberries, strawberries, cranberries. The aroma doesnít carry as well into the flavor. Sweet with a soft lightly grain body. Decent fruit beer.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Growler shared by J12601. Pours a hazy almost murky pinkish violet red with a thin white head. Aroma is muddled fruits- raspberry, cherry and some other stone fruits- pear and peach with slight vegetable character. Flavor is mineral and chalk-like with more mixed fruits, raspberry and cherry dominate- more vegetable character, earth, and pitty tannins- slight slickness and a very light tartness. A bit too jumbled and unrefined.

JaBier (5011) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2010
On tap at Founders. Completely opaque pink color with no head; looks like V8 Splash. Aroma of chalky cheese, berries, corn, sweet malt and cherry. Cheesy berry flavor with hints of lemon and pineapple. Odd.

Bullit (4030) - Burgos, SPAIN - DEC 3, 2009
Draft at brewery. Murky pink-light red colour. Aroma of strawberry, vanilla, forest fruits, banana. Flavour is very fruity, strawberry, passion fruits, some malts. Thick brew, with a smooth mouthfeeling. Not overly sweet. Could have this for breakfast everyday!

Growler pour @ Paulís tasting. Hazy ruby pour with a slight white head. Full fruit aroma not too sweet. Cherry, rasp, cran, berries donít follow too much into the flavor.
