3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Vermont brewpub. Sampler
Appearance : Shiny red.
Aroma : Great fresh and wild raspberries. Very fruity. Crisp.
Taste : Nice fruity and fresh raspberries. Light tartness.
Overall : Nothing really fancy here but this is very tasty. This is a very nice example of fruit beer. Not "over the top" in any way but really well made. The were not afraid to put a ton of raspberries in there. I find it a bit like the Framboyante from BdT but without the hops. This was a very nice summer beer (why is it a winter seasonal ?) and I think it’s slightly underrated here... Maybe it’s not always in such good shape.

Tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy ruby red with a very small white head. Aroma is raspberry, wheat and lightly sour notes. Flavor of the same. Kinda reminds me of a raspberry weise.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler shared at the Smoke from the Oak release. Pours a light clear red with a hint of a white head. Piles of raspberry and a slight bit of crisp acid. Body is thin and fruity, ends with a chewy light sour. Pretty tasty and easy drinking, but a little light.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the brewpub - Poured a beautiful ruby red in color with a very small white head. Aroma is all raspberries and quite strong. Flavor matches pretty much and is fairly sweet. Not much here from a beer perspective, but I enjoyed anyway.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep red colour and crystal clear. Rich bright raspberry aroma. Bright and fruity smelling. Flavour is a bit strange and flat though. Sort of watery on the palate. A bit of lightly peppery heat, raspberry and a lot of ethanol on the back. Meh.
