3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Falling Rock, Denver. Sits for hours in the glass illuminating the room in red. Atop is but a lone halo...everlasting. The nose was of sour fruit undercut with sweetness reminiscent of honey. Flavors exhibited a sweet and sour balance allowing the fruity raspberry and strawberry notes to rise...This is some drinkable stuff, but it aint no la folie. Its akin to a syrup in a berliner weisse...a good berliner weisse needs a syrup, not. La folie? Come on, motherfucker...LaFolie needs syrup like..uh...I’m bad at analogies.

Notes from 4 ounce sample at Pizza Port Belgian Beer Fest in March 2009. Light aroma of fruit and berries. Had the essence of Kool-Aid. Tart taste of cherry and a bit of soy sauce.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Pizza Port Belgian Beer Party. Pours a red amber with a small head. Aroma is fruity and funky. Some wood and some sweetness. Flavor is sweet and tart, cherries and funk. The honey and mead qualies stand out nicely and balance out the funky sourness of the La Folie. Sharp on the palate. Prefer the La Folie stand alone, But this is still pretty good.

Draft @ BSAF 2009. Pours a reddish brown with a small head. Aromas of sour fruit, sweet malt and honey. Flavors are sweet up front with more sour fruit and honey. Decent stuff, nothing to go crazy over.

Crushed with Jakebra at BSAF. Ooh, never knew tart, sour raspberries could be so delicious. Got some honey in there that’s smooth as hell. Excellent.
