Patrickctenchi (3569) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 14, 2014
Draft: Pours tea brown with a short, beige head. Aroma is baked bread, raspberry and alcohol. Taste is boozy, berries, caramel. Ok, but a little too forceful on the alcohol presentation.

Strykzone (4903) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2012
Sampled at dld eve. Red brown. More radpberry than anything but wood and rich malt also in the nose. Raspberry again leads the flavor. Wood and lots of malt. This is tadty, especially on a night full of big impy stouts.

Tmoney99 (10554) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Draft sample at IBGWF 12. Poured dark reddish brown color and an average frothy off-white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy tart rasperry fruit aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium tart fruit flavor with a medium tart fruit finish of moderate duration. Refreshing fruit beer.

holdenn (2080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2010
Sampled at the Brewery. Dirty earthy nose with alcohol and malt. Clear yellow body with a thin head. Grain pale malts and alcohol flavors with a raspberry yogurt finish. Dry boozy. I’m glad I stuck with the sampler, this would be tough to finish. 7/3/7/3/13 3.3

BBB63 (6011) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Tap: Ruby hue with a minimal head nor lace. The aroma is RASPBERRY, oh there is some pale biscuity malt, mineral water and slight ginger like spicy tones. The taste is full frontal twangy raspberry (and a little grape too) with a pale malt old school British kilned tone. Light peppery and clove notes with a moderately boozy finish. The mouth feel is somewhat sticky and lush, soft bodied and warming alcohol but not abrasive. It is okay, nothing more other than being different. I guess I hoped for more twang or complexity... wild yeast perhaps?
