4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very raspberry aroma with sour and sweet background and a touch of aluminum foil. Appears like cranberry juice with pink foam and lace. Tastes like a rapberry wine; tart, sour, and sweet are all very well balanced with a touch of bitter hay. Texture is nearly a 5, foamy, thick, and light. Oversll, very good, could be hopped a touch more to tone down the sweetness. Tastes a bit like an aged Founder’s Rubeus.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Super dark ruby-pink. Nice little bit of lingering head. Super raspberry nose - sour but sweet. Full body. Tastes of tart raspberry juice with the slightest of yeast undebites to cut the super juicy aspect. Would probably benefit from aging.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Une grosse bouteille avec Pat. Une robe rouge-rose avec une mousse intense. La tête est rose. Un nez de fruits rouges, framboises et de sirop pour la toux, rien de décevant. Le liquide est enrobant en bouche, l’équilibre est parfait, pas trop sucrée juste assez, pas trop acide, juste assez. Les saveurs fruitées sont compotées. Qui n’aimerait pas ?

She was dressed as Pirouette in red...pours a deep crimson body with full pink cap of foam. Head settles quickly, leaving a sticky lacing. Wafts of fresh summery fruit with some funky yeast. Massive berry taste with a pleasant tartness. Slick mouthfeel, slightly syrupy consistency, and a lingering sweetness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a crystal clear garnet red with a light off white head. The aroma is raspberry with just a hint of cherry. Flavor is also mainly raspberry with a malty note. Tart finish. Medium body, good fizz, though not too much. Reminds me of a wine cooler from back in the day. Packs a good punch with its 9.2% ABV. Not overly boozy tasting. Great desert beer. I wouldnt want a large quantity of it, you might be painting the town red! Or at least your walls!!
