4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Awesome beer. Raspberries and tart. Had at a restaraunt of the same name no lie. Lightly carbonate cloudy and some wild yeast in aroma and flavor. Loved all the raspberries and the tartness from the wild yeasts and funk going on. Great beer.

Pours golden with pink reflects. Low to no head. Aroma is of raspberries, leaves. Taste is of raspberries, fruits, leaves. Palate: Light body, soft carbonation. Harsh finish. Overall: Not 100% fresh. The old stale raspberries shows. Still more than decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml). Batch #2. From cparles, thanks! Split with the Québec crew.
Appearance: Slightly hazy golden with pinkish hues, a small white head, poor retention and little lacing.
Aroma: Quite leafy with fainted raspberries (which seems normal considering it’s their 2nd use), yeast, mild earthy notes and some vegetal presence that is a bit offputting.
Taste: Not much sweetness here, very leafy again with fainted raspberries, jammy notes, mild acidic presence, earthy notes and herbal/grassy features.
Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Rather dry finish. Leafy aftertaste.
Overall: Easy drinking. An interesting experimentation from Jester King, but the result is a bit dull. It doesn’t have the bright fruitiness Atrial Rubicite have and the base beer isn’t really expressive either.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden with no head and no lacing. Nose is of yeast, wood, flowers and fruits. Lightly vegetal, a turn off for me. Taste is really wood-forward, moderately acid and dry. I can’t say I tasted the raspberries much so this technique should be forgotten. Body and carbonation are both medium and it is mildly refreshing. Barely OK, I won’t seek this again.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle generously shared by a random patron at Caps & Taps. It pours a clear rose color. Somewhere between pink and red with a pinkish head. The aroma is bright tart raspberries with some mild rose petals. The flavor is nice with light raspberry tartness, a little floral perfume and some balancing berry sweetness. Very light on the palate with some mild mineral water quality that makes this very quenching. Really really enjoyable stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 750 ml bottle, blend #3. Aroma is very fruity with a lot of raspberry notes and is slightly jammy. Light citrus, stone and tropical fruit with a light earthiness. Faint wheat and malt notes with a light phenolic character. Pours a cloudy, pinkish red with an orange hue and a large, rocky, slightly pink head that recedes into itself then lingers as a thin film. Flavor is moderately tart with a fairly strong citrus note. Some medium light raspberry character, lighter than in the aroma and a lot less jammy. Medium phenolic note with quite a bit of peppercorn. Moderate bitterness. Quite a bit of tannins from the raspberries. Light wheat and malt notes. Mouthfeel is medium to medium light bodied and slightly watery with medium high carbonation. Low, but present astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty nice raspberry farmhouse beer. It?s perhaps a bit too acidic and I think the raspberry skins adds a bit too many harsh tannins. Base beer peaks through the raspberry notes.
