4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Pours clear and dark copper with a small, creamy, off-white head. The aroma is infused with tons of raspberries and, after it warms, a hint of acetone as well. Full-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is sour and fruity - as with the nose, loads of raspberries here too. Tart, fruity, finish. Not roasty in any way. That component is long gone. World-class brew courtesy of 50belair!
