Goose Island’s Raspberry Saison is no fake fruit sweet quencher...though there is a refreshing thing going on...This beer has a slight sweetness but lends itself more to the fresh fruit lambics found in the smallest breweries of Belgium.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Very pale, crystal clear, pink-tinted beer. The nose is lightly wheaty with a kiss of fruitiness. Not terribly spicy at all – just a little bit of light lemony tartness with a bit of wheaty flavour on the back. As it warms, there is a kiss of chewy/jammy berry fruitiness. It’s okay, but it seems to be missing something.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Tap at BT. Pours a light copper and thin head and low carb. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, oaky, then slick with tons of butter, diacetyl, sweet butterscotch, a touch of alcohol, and very low to no rasp on the aroma. Flavor was a bit more raspberry and a bit lower in diacetyl, earth, toast, slick sweet toffee and more butterscotch, vanilla, oak, bourbon, alcohol burn, caramel, and a slick sweet finish. This one went wrong somewhere.

Draft. Pours an amber body with a white head. Raspberries oak y smooth soft notes with a warming vanilla or menilla notes. There is an odd paper quality kinda reminiscent to the aroma of fresh xeroxed paper amongst the raspberry notes. A bit sweet with notes of rich mash mellows. Not sure how exactly i felt about this.

TeamTrappist (832) - jericho, New York, USA - MAR 1, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. Poured a medium amber with a very thin white head. Nose is yeasty and a touch fruity and a bit boozy. Since I typically don’t like saison and this is not a typical saison I kind of like it despite how disjointed it is. It’s a bit all over the places touch fruity, and boozy, with decent carbonation. Finish is sweet again with that hint of booze. It’s almost bourbonny.

some fruity flavors coming out, but overall, just a funky, buttery, diacetyl mess.
