Pours a dark reddish pink color with sweet fruit aroma. Taste is lightly sweet and tart with a crisp finish. The raspberries dominate here. Nice light hops balance. Not as dry as your typical saison. Extremely refreshing. If this is really 8%, it’s kinda dangerous as you wouldn’t guess it at all. I doubt I could drink more than one, but a perfect starter. This is what a fruit beer should taste like!

Tap at OBF. Pours ruddy with a creamy tan head. Slightly sour raspberry aroma. Med body. Flavor is slightly sour fresh raspberry. It’s tart, just a little sour. There’s citrus. There’s an earthy suggestion. Quite complex. Very tasty.

Tap @ Tap n’ Handle Foco. Pours a dark rose pink with a big pinkish head. Aroma is a big, tart, cran raspberry fruity. Tart, tangy raspberry, fruity wheat, a touch spicy flavor. Very interesting brew.

Bacterial (1197) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle shared by Greg at RBSG - thanks!! Beautiful red pour and a great sour funky raspberry nose. Taste is nice, but perhaps too reminiscent of fruit juice added to a very slightly hoppy beer.

nuplastikk (4123) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Tap at Clips of Faith. Bright orange-red body. Thin, oily head. Raspberry tones, some faint funky yeast notes underneath. The rose hips give it a sort of artificial feel, but it is still an enjoyable beverage. An interesting one-off, but not exactly one I’d seek out again.

portableparty (1908) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Pours bright hazy pink with a thin tight off white head. Aroma is strong raspberries like jam. Taste is watery malt raspberries and slight sour tartness. Palate is thin watery and dry.

Bottle at RBSG. From notes. Tart and sour with a little funk and loads of raspberry. I would totally but this if I ever find it again.

One of the best New Belgium beers I have had. Nice raspberry nose and aroma, sweet fruity body with citrus notes and slight sourness.

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Pours a deep candy red color. Aroma of raspberry juice and a bit if sugary sweetness. Flavors were sweet, a bit sour, with lots of candy raspberry flavor. A bit of bitterness as well. Mouthfeel was not excessively rich, but very clean and refreshing. One if those "thirst quenching" types of beers. Definitely would be a hit with the ladies.
