bp (785) - Queens, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2009
draft at the brewpub: looks like a cloudy bloody mary, aroma of berries, taste of sour cherries, some citrus, a little bite from the mild carbonation, only mildly sour, a very interesting and tasty beer

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.

Growler thanks to my Secret Santa, whose identity I still have not ascertained. I took this to Paul’s for a big ol’ 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.

Bullit (3975) - 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!

Silphium (3161) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 29, 2009
On tap at Founders. Murky V8 juice body, also kin to a bloody mary, or a package of defrosted frozen strawberries in syrup. Wacky. Strong, sweet, dense nose of primarily strawberries. The body is tart and sweet, again primarily of strawberries, but with woody, almost bitter notes in the finish. A thick beer/fruit smoothie. This and the Newaygo County Cherry aim for the "extreme" fruit beer classification.

Sammy (8420) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2011
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.

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 doesn’t carry as well into the flavor. Sweet with a soft lightly grain body. Decent fruit beer.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - 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.

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