3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle purchased at The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma on this is heavily sweet, and fruity with hints of raspberry. There is also a little acetic and lightly lactic funk present, too. Light cheesiness. Very nicely aromatic. The body is a mostly opaque garnet-amber color with a small, light pink head, which is pretty frail. Starts a bit tart, sharp, and acidic, but not overly so. Some raspberries come through in the middle, with more light acidity and sweetness. Finishes with a bit of a wheat-like chewiness present. Nice, fine bubbly carbonation present here. I think this beer came out pretty well, but it just seems to lack the added layers of complexity that the guys in Belgium seem to have. Still a solid beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
De couleur rosée et assez trouble, aucune mousse ou presque ne se forme suite au versement de la bière. Le nez est à la fois très végétal et fruité, des notes de cuir et de framboises explosent lorsqu’on y plonge le pif. L’acidité est assez importante, donnant ainsi un kick supplémentaire au goût de framboises. Super rafraîchissante cette bière.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice to have a beer with fruit that doesn’t taste like a dessert. Raspberry and other fruity esters. Rose colored with a minimal head. Light but full palate with good carbonation but a dry finish. Raspberry hits you first with a slight hint of citrus. Bitterness is low but a certain graininess is present. A little more refined than most.

Bottle thanks to Matt. Pours a cloudy amber with small frothy white head. The aroma is fruit and diacetyl. Similar taste to aroma, infection?

På fat. Smak och doft av hallonsoda, hallonsylt, hallonkärnor med toner av fat och vinäger. Lagom sötma, fin syrlighet, bra balans. Mycket trevligt i sommarvärmen.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear reddish body with a small fizzy pink tinged head that faded rather quickly. The nose is crazy delicious smelling. Lots of fresh tart raspberries with some wild funkiness and dry oak. Smells like funky raspberry jam. The flavor is tart and sweet all at once with a perfect oaky dryness on the finish. Lighter bodied with a clingy tartness on the back end. Sticks to your teeth like raspberry jam. Nice fizzy active carbonation. Really nice beer.
