Bottle @ home, courtesy of pepsiedcan. RESPECT MALT LIKKA, MY BRO. Pours a hazy orange appearance with a small, off white head. The aroma is actually pretty nice with a rich raspberry puree nose. Somewhat syrupy, thick raspberry dessert bar, a bit tart, kind of chewy flavor. Actually, it really just tastes like a raspberry dessert bar. Wow, this sounded fucking stupid as fuck but Iíd totally love to beer bong and get completely fucked on this shit. They just donít make shit these days like this that is so easy to get fucked up on. Super easy to get buzzed quick on this 9.5% abv kidís drink. Best Iowan Raspberry beer that Iíve had so far in 2013.

[Bottle] Pours deep, hazy amber with a ring of a white head. Aroma is decent, but pretty basic, with mainly just yeast and raspberry. Taste is alcohol (not very well hidden), raspberry again, yeast, malt dominant in the finish. Medium-thin mouthfeel which is quite dry. Finish length is average. Overall, an interesting idea, and if done correctly, the typical banana character of a tripel mixed with the raspberry could be great. However, this one felt a little rough, with the flavors never really quite meshing, and the malt in particular clashing with the other flavors.

nuplastikk (4347) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 18, 2012
12oz bottle. Iíd guess anyone slagging this beer has never tried to make a raspberry tripel before. Big sweet golden malt body, but an even bigger pronounced raspberry flavor. Unfiltered orange-pink-tan body, thin steady white head. The raspberry really balances out the big malt and maybe candi sugar. Brutal and full bodied, but also a pretty enjoyable venture.

Gription79 (2253) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is raspberries, syrup, floral, slight grainy malts. The flavor is syrup, raspberries, sugar, slight bitterness. This is very sweet and cloying. The raspberries come across as raspberry syrup.

Ughsmash (7125) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottled. Poured slightly hazy golden with a short-lived whitish head. The aroma picked up mostly sweet raspberries (with some tart seediness) over warm, mostly honey-inspired sugars and some ripe banana.. the raspberry was jammy, and it came across a bit too sweet. The flavor found sweet honey and some bready malts at the core.. lots of somewhat cloying raspberry character and a hit of ripe banana around.. finished very sweet with raspberries and grainy malts. Medium-bodied with tight, prickly carbonation on the palate.. too focused on the raspberries, and too sweet, but OK-ish overall.

heemer77 (5099) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle. A rich deep orange brew with a thin white head. The nose has some massive raspberry and dough. There is also a light nutty character. The taste starts with dough and finishes with a fair amount of raspberries. However, this is not very sweet, while retaining a solid raspberry character. There is also a little hint of leather funk. This had a thick mouth feel. A nice fruit beer and surprisingly good for Millstream.

DrnkMcDermott (2793) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Draft at the Millstream tap room. The sign at the tap shows this is 8% abv, not 9.5%. But there may be widely different batches. A bubbly amber colored beer, with the bubbles ebbing to a thin layer of foam. I canít smell much, for some reason, and my nose ISNíT stuffy at this time. Just get some malt in the nose. Malt is thick; I spilled some on my hand and itís very sticky. The blend of tripel and raspberry hits it pretty right. Fuity sweetness is not overly done, and the result may be drier than the usual tripel. Taste of unfiltered yeast may be keeping the fruit taste down, too. Thick mouthfeel. A slight grainy smell once I get to the bottom.

falco242 (251) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Not a very special pour, and surprisingly lackluster with just an amber color. Aroma is really light. Caramel and malts quickly replaced by lots of raspberry flavor. Not bad overall.

unclemike (2222) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Pours a light crimson, translucent, looks somewhat dull. Aroma of ripe raspberries, very striking, reminds me of a raspberry lambic, however this doesnít translate well in the flavor, somewhat flat raspberries are almost non-existant in the flavor, however has a crisp clean aftertaste

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy medium orange color. The head was creamy, a few fingers high and off white. Smelled of clove, hay, and white pepper. There were also whiffs of ginger and berry. Medium bodied and slightly sweet with mild warming alcohol. Hay, cereal grain, clove, and fruit (pear, raspberry, apricot) flavors. Pretty good.
