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.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Elwood. Vintage 2012. Pours a clear deep amber with a rich beige head. Fresh, sweet berry aroma but never excessive. Medium body, fresh sweet raspberry notes, but again subtle and pleasant. A very complex beer in the making, and very complex flavours. Like it a lot! 160612

Clear deep red beer, short lived pale tan head. Palate is low carbonation and just slightly dry. Raspberry juice that is lightly rounded thanks to the barrelling. Semi dry finish. Disappointing! And where is the pear?

Travlr (21640) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2011
Bottle. Dark murky brown color, tan coca-cola style head. Aroma of bittersweet raspberries, blueberries. Taste is an odd combo of sweet and sour fruit, vanilla, port. Not sure what to think of this one.

Can’t find the point.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 8, 2010
A: The pour is a dark amber color with just about no head at all. S: Lots of overly sweet raspberries and some fake pear aromas as well. There’s a mild tart and seedy quality to the nose. T: Oh goodness, overly ripe (nearly rotting) raspberries with the pears contributing to the cloying nature of the flavor. And just for good measure, a distinct sugary flavor as well. M: Medium bodied with a low to moderate level of carbonation and a bit of a syrupy feel. D: This was just not good in any sense. Way too sweet and nothing even resembling balance at all.
