3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Jackie-Os, served in a goblet. ABV listed as 5%. Nice, faded pale but darker red-brown color, totally opaque. Decent gradient of color. Minimal white head. Great, tarty raspberry aroma. Belgo yeast is a great complement to the razz. Awesome sweet taste, but not overpowering. Some bitter, some grapefruit aroma there too. Very smooth carbonation, nice drier texture. A very cool and balanced fruit beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a murk dark reddish-brown color with a medium light beige head that recedes to an outer ring. Short stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of berries and yeast. Medium body with a moderately tart fruit character and notes of wheat and yeast. The finish is fruity with a lingering raspberry aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
