COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Envious is a unique beer, a hybrid of many techniques. Its high-gravity malt-fermented base is blended with Michigan pear juice and chardonnay yeast for a second fermentation, before being aged with raspberries and oak. Unlike any style or beer before it, it must be tasted to be appreciated.

Quasimodo (217) - chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2013
A dark red fruit beer with no head and low carbonation. Notes of raspberry, pear and soft chocolate malt. Low bitterness and moderate sweetness. Watery texture. The flavor starts mild, accumulates nicely, but doesn’t quite get there. Low tartness for the style.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5136) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2015
From the January 2014 3R6P tasting +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a black color with red highlights and a medium sized foamy red-tan head that faded and left minimal lacing. The aroma was chocolate, vague berries and vanilla cream. The flavor was cocoa, malt, malted milk, vague berries, vanilla cream and soy sauce. Medium length finish. Moderately full bodied. Odd.

Dr_Fellini (635) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a murky deep but brown slightly reddish color with a light tan head. Aroma is slightly boozy, thick sugar. Strong sugary flavor with fruit juice. Not at all expected. OK. Nothing special.

ericdevin (942) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle via Lawson. Pours a dark, opaque reddish brown/black. Little bit of tan head. Aroma sweet and fruity, maybe some lacto, oakiness. Body full and sweet, with lots of raspberries and oak in the finish, not much evidence of pear or Chardonnay yeast. Nice.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2014
2011 backlog. Bomber – 2010 vintage. Pours hazy amber with a thin head. The nose is grapey, malty and boozy. The taste is pretty much the same. Lots of boozy grapes. Medium bodied. Interesting brew. 3.4

nearbeer (3899) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 25, 2014
650 ml. 2011 vintage. Pours a deep mahogany with a lasting thin film of foam. Aroma is raisin, raspberry, toffee, grape and honey. Taste is lightly tart raspberry and dark cherry, prune and raisin. Big fruit and malt, but there’s an undercurrent of pithy bitterness and lightly peppery zest. Long finish hints at chocolate and blackberry, and this is also where I finally can detect some nice light-toasted oak. Medium body is to the sweet side, but finishes with a delicate bitter and acidity that dries everything well. Low-medium carbonation is nice and there’s hardly a trace of the abv.

djd07 (3976) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle thanks to Matt. Pours a cloudy amber with small off white head. The aroma is grape jam and funk. Medium mouth with nice jam raspberry, oak and sweet finish. Good.

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 24, 2014
Brown pour with an off-white head. Big berry aromas not much oak to speak of though. The initial taste was pretty disappointing, very weak body and the fruit flavors are minimal. Nowhere close to as flavorful as I thought it would be. Not unpleasant but leaves much to be desired.

chucklemation (593) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - APR 22, 2014
Pours a reddish color with a light off-white head. Has a nice, sweet raspberry aroma. Flavor is a combination of sweet raspberry and Chardonnay, with very faint tartness. I don’t detect the pear. The body is on the light side, watery. This is a good beer, though I wish there was more fruit than Chardonnay in the flavor.
