3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Novemberish 2005 bottle from Rastacouere, consumed on 3/28/06
Immense white head is very bubbly, eventually receding to a light covering, with minimal lacing. Vigorous, small bubbles roam about the liquid, which is a light pinkish-lemonade color, with just a touch of haze towards the bottom of the bottle.
The nose is very dry, with a lightly spicy yeast, some faint plant-like notes, entwined with dry raspberries, tastefully and seemingly authentically done. A soft vanilla keeps it from being bone dry, but its near that. Raspberry pulp-like juiciness fills in most of the aroma, while a touch of wheat dryness is noted.
Upon first sip, the liquid crackles with lively carbonation, very spritzy, expansive and pulling apart the already dried out flavors imparted by the lightly crusty white grains, soft, but dry wheat and raspberry seed dryness. The raspberry flavor is true, however, and as the beer warms and the carbonation becomes nearly manageable, a succulent honey-vanilla covered raspberry flavor emerges, sticking to the palate and lingering long after the finish. Fairly clean yeastiness, light sourdough effect, matches the extremely dry, fully attenuated raspberry flavor to produce a light bodied, quenching drink. No alcohol noted. Touch watery, as others have noted, with plenty of carbonation, but the beer wouldnt work with much lower levels of carbonation (though it could stand to be less expansive). Thanks David!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This looks like a pretty underrated beer. It’s not overly sweet at all, it’s very reasonably priced. It’s similar in a lot of ways to the Three Philosophers. OK, so it’s not that complex, and a little weak in terms of mouthfeel. It’s enjoyable though.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy orange beer with a small off white head. Malty aroma with a berry fruityness and a light yeast note. Malty sour and sweet flavor with a sweet and light dry finish.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Cloudy pink grapefruit color. Aroma of raspberries and white sugar. Watery taste, with a very light fruit touch and extremely short final. Bad for my taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 34,1 cl) Hazy reddish orange with a small, slightly pink head. Very fruity, berry nose. Light-bodied with vaguely sour notes and very distinct accents of raspberries - appear authentic, not artificially flavoured. Not really sweet, but very fresh. A perfect summer aperitif. Thanks to Siroy for this. 150306

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
#2400... Bottle... Cloudy, amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. The nose is a jumbled mess of berries, grain and bread dough. Thin, tartish flavor with moderate bitterness. Light-bodied and fizzy. Finishes weak, but crisp and clean. Too crisp and clean based on what was expected. Dissapointing! Thanks go out to my friend, Mr. Big, for the bottle. Not your fault!
