Reminiscent of a traditional Wallonian-style Belgian Saison with a touch of raspberry flavor, this rustic farmhouse ale is handcrafted with 2-row, Pilsen, Extra Special and Munich malts combined with Cluster and Willamette hops. Refreshingly tart and flavorful with notes of herbal complexity.

Pours a light blood orange with aroma of raspberry, yeast, and grain. Sweet raspberry puree flavor with some grain and yeast. Decent beer.

Pours with a dark red color and short lived head. The beginning was a sweet, almost caramel malt profile with a little more (almost sweet) raspberry component than I would like. I dont know if this is true to style. Hops were present in a floral capacity and barely balanced the malt end. Again, I dont know if this is true to style. I could only drink one of these in a session without being overwhelmed.

Pours a slightly cloudy amber color with white head. Raspberry on the nose, a little grain; follows onto the palate. Finishes with sweetness.

Decent summer brew. Pours amber with a fluffy head. The aroma is mostly raspberry. The flavor is raspberry too, maybe a bit artificial or frozen, not fresh ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gal! Just can't handle the the intense raspberry extract character. Stands out in front of everything else. How to get the taste out? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy dirty orange amber with a quick to dissipate head, no lace. Taste is quite underwhelming, especially for 7.2% abv. Malt starts things, and is matched early in the palate by sour and bitter berries, before adding alcohol for the finish. All is mild in flavor while strong in body. Not very appealing.

Good God! Did someone mix near beer with Lysol? I wanted to like this beer but.... Maybe it’ll be good for cleaning the drains.

Bottle from mari’s. Pours hazy orange with a large white head. The aroma has some funky raspberry scent but little else. The taste is artificial raspberry drink and a rough finish.

Strykzone (6048) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Sampled at 4 Hands. Kind of champagne in color with an off white head. Raspberries in the aroma and even more in the flavor. Very easy to drink. Pleadant.

Poured an deep red/amber with a light head and lacing. Aroma was of malts and slightly fruity with just hint of raspberries. Taste was malty upfront with a light raspberry flavor in the background ending with a moderate hop finish and slight syrupiness. Mouth was good. Overall, not a bad saison by the folks at Point.
