COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This 8% Belgian ale was brewed to commemorate P.B.C.'s 200th batch. Packed with over 1# of cherries and raspberries per gallon, the Red Devil balances delicately between tart and not too sweet.

Bottle. Pours a red tinted copper color with white head. Raspberry, cherry, sweet dough, pie filling aromas. Raspberry, cherry pie, bread, sweet fruity berries flavors. Pretty nice fruit beer.

Cybercat (3983) - Georgia, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Pours slightly reddish coppery amber with a fairly thick but effervescent pink-tinged buff head. Malty aroma has a strong overtone of cherries and raspberries that has me going Pavlov. Flavor is mainly cherry, with raspberry, malty, and shy hoppy tones providing backup. A little sweet, a little tart, and 100% refreshing in the sweltering Georgia heat. (Thank goodness Moncrief repaired my blooming AC unit!) Mouthfeel has firm body and a shy but persistent fizz. Let this devil possess you if you have a helluva thirst.

Draft at Thirsty Monk pour red copper with moderate white head. Nose tart cherry, slight sour, some raspberry. Taste cherry and sweet malt up front. Continue with light fruit to finish.

I’m always a fan of the tart fruit beer. Raspberry sweetness balanced out by its sticky citrus aftertaste. Mellow flavor, on the whole, but a refreshing zing at the end leaves a good, lasting impression.

b3shine (6509) - Indiana, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks good; a transparent reddish copper with white lacing. Smells and tastes of yeast and raspberries with a solid mouthfeel. An enjoyable fruit beer.

Dogbones (116) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Home keg tap to glass. Beautiful pink hue in the glass with a 1/2 inch head. Minimal lacing. Strong fresh raspberry smell mixed with a nice belgian aroma. The taste follows the smell exactly with a medium body and a delicious buttery undertone! For an amazing treat, mix half and half with Catawba’s PB&J Time!

TURDFERGUSON (4018) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Tap at beer study. Pours a dark brownish red with a small off white head. Nose is lightly fruity, some booze upfront, a bit of red berry seeds. Flavor is similar, fruit and booze dominate with a light Belgian yeast like finish. Okay, but a little too boozy to really enjoy.

emacgee (4367) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Pours a deep ruby red with one finger of off white head. Nose shows some fruity notes and earthy grain. Raspberry and raspberry seeds show up front in the flavor. Some earthy and yeasty notes show as well. Lightly sweet notes show as well. Light bodied and dry on the finish.

574deadzone (1192) - North Central, Indiana, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Draft at the source, listed 8.5% ABV on the board. Pours a clear bright red-pop color with a thin pinkish white head that leaves some clingy lace. Nose involves spicy, funky yeast, earthy notes, with a hint of cherry. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter, with a fair tartness: not a big flavor-punch. Medium body, actively carbed, with a crisp tart finish. A decent brew, but lacking in a lot of ways. And the red-pop appearance is just weird.

nuplastikk (5033) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Fruit overload. Enjoyable but in no way balanced. Unfiltered orange-pink-red. Steady head. Forward raspberry and fruit tones. Lots of fruit flavor, but just lacks balance. A fresh beast of a fruit beer.
