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.

JMerritt (1863) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Bottled. Dark garnet with a thin, bright white head. Syrupy brown sugar, molasses, cherry cordial nose with a moderate amount of alcohol. Flavor is mildly sweet and very mildly sour with a bit of pear flesh, caramels, cherry juice and cardboard. Stale.

2010 vintage. Amazing aroma! Smells like raisins with a similar smell to a kriek lambic. Pours a near opaque mahogany. It tastes kind of creamy, subtle hints of a honeywine. Overall, very delicious.

EKGoldings (602) - Radford, Virginia, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle, 2012 edition. Pours red-brown, good clarity despite the darkness. Smell is stewed dark fruit, dark malt, some fruit. Taste is initially dark malt and fruit, followed by some acidity and fruit. Somewhat astringent finish. Wood is not obvious to me. Interesting beer but one that isn’t a standout.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5188) - 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 (704) - 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 (969) - 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 (2244) - 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 (3968) - 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 (4938) - 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.
