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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

On tap 4 oz. sampler at Westover Beer Haus in Arlington, VA.
Clear, ruby color with no head or lacing.
Aroma of raspberry jam and a hint of tart cherries.
Taste of fresh raspberry purée with a little tart dark fruit and berries.
Full/medium body and low/medium carbonization.
A fine dessert beer for sipping. Drinking a 22 oz. bottle would be a challenge, but it would be nice for sharing.

2015 Version. Red, with a pink head. Smells like a bowl of fresh raspberries, with a touch of more raspberries. Clean and crisp palate. Taste is raspberries, with some other citrus notes. Very bright fruit flavors. Some oaky flavors in the finish. Really good...

I don't love a fruity beer and this is a very fruity beer, but I'll try anything twice and this brew is a good reason why.
Raspberries and good Belgian beer have dessert together. Delicious but definitely a sipping beer like a fine port.
If you like raspberry desserts and beer, this will be up your alley.
