Bottle at sampling session. From notes (Oct. 8, 2011). Big raspberry nose. Clear dark red color with pink lacing. Great concentrated raspberry initial, some wheat notes, very light spiciness, some pepper. Very sweet, overall. An interesting "beer," which is very refreshing and tart.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at the Cajun Cafe beer festival. Poured into small snifters. Brilliant reddish purple color with a pinkish fluffy head. The aroma is raspberries galore with a slight tartness and oak barrel. The taste is amazing with serious raspberries, blackberries, and a tartness. It is rather sweet which is the only downside but who cares. It is a delicious fruit beer with some tartness and dryness at the finish. Very very good.

I thought I’d had good raspberry beers before. Apparently I haven’t. Near perfectly executed. Ruby pour with good head and lacing. Light touch of bitterness from the raspberry seeds. Tart and sweet. Wonderful. Bottle.
