3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: The pour is a deep garnet and a pink short and thin head appears with little retention, but leaving a full bubbly coating.
Aroma: The aroma is strong of raspberry and hints of strawberry. Thatís all I get, and itís very pleasant.
Taste: Wowza, light tartness throughout with huge raspberry flavors leading to a dry oaky finish. Thereís not much else I get but boy itís good.
Palate: Medium bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: This is very one note, but boy it does it right. Highly drinkable and very good. Iím glad to have found this.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Trade from Garry. 2011 Bottle. Thanks! Last Backstage to try that I missed out on. Pours a deep dark red with a dark pink one finger head. Aroma is super sweet raspberry sherbet and just a hint of dry yeast funk, then more raspberries. Beautiful! Flavor follows right on with raspberry sherbet, and somehow super creamy whoah. There might be a hint of yeast in there, but that is stretching. pure raspberry bliss here. Higher carbonation than I expected that really lightens up the sweet raspberry syrup. Otherwise pretty sticky and thick. Not quite NG Rasp Tart but a close second and much more decadent. This is yum!

Poured a luminous reddish purple with a white head. Aroma of sickly sweet raspberries. Medium body, flavour is of the fruit, a bit too sweet for my palate.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the Deansoís monthly RB tasting, July 2013. Poured a dark reddish brown with a reddish head. The aroma is zesty raspberry. The flavour is medium to strong sweet, zesty raspberry, a little yeast and not much else. Itís rather too sweet for me. Nice to taste, but this beer is all about the sweetness and the raspberries.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle from the backstage release. Had it on tap and it was decent however opening up the bottle 2 years after the fact and good lord. Pours a magenta with a dark rose head. Huge raspberry nose, sorta freshly pressed, very faint alcohol but tart. Moderate carbonation, full body, slightly tart, becomes dry, more raspberry, freaking amazing finish and I wish I had cases of this.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is an absolutely amazing beer. A perfect amount of both sweet and tart notes with an overwhelming amount of raspberry flavor. Tastes similar to raspberry wine with contributions from the Belgian yeast and malt flavors. Has a subtle burnt sugar finish which is nice.
