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.

Pours a murky iced tea color with a faint lacing around the ridges of the glass. Funky notes of peach and pear with hints of fermented grape. Detectable are notes of raspberry and oak. Hints of caramel from the malt is also apparent. Interesting, but also somewhat all over the place

hotstuff (3953) - Indiana, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Rated on 8-29-2010. This bottled beer pours a small fizzy tan head that quickly dissipates, transparent reddish body, fast rising carbonation, and virtually no lacing. The aromas are oak, sweet, tart, pear, and raspberries. The taste is sweet, acidic, raspberries, fruity, hint of malt, and finishes semi-dry. This beer provides a lively palate and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer has a definite raspberry presence. It is an okay beer for the style, but is a beer that I will not drink again as the flavors could have been better than what they are.

SpongeRuiner (568) - Michigan, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Heavy oak and dark fruit aroma. Has a watery upfront taste. Itís not sour or tart in any way. A lot of carbonation. A big woody taste in the finish. Not really what I was expecting. It was alright but not worth the slightly higher than average price if that says anything.

AirForceHops (2717) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 12, 2014
22 oz. bottle, 2012 vintage from Binnyís, Lincoln Park Location. Light pink/ lavender type color. Nose is simply raspberry, all I get from the aroma. Flavor is real simple. Raspberry puree, pear hints and light traces of wood. The flavor is ok. Body is really light with a bit of prickly carbonation. Its light a fruit spritzer.

Purple hues. Nose is fruity and acidic like peach skin. Fruity but the malt is rotten like old oak. Itís pretty drinkable best split 3.2/5
