4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the Pints for Pets Brewfest. Clear reddish gold with loads of carbonation. Spritzy, fruity, white wine aroma and taste. The fruits come through fantastically, and accent the light grape/vinous feel of the Gran Met. My favorite Voodoo brew, hands down.

Bottle at Paul’s gathering. Gross. Light cherry, acetone and alcohol flavor. Violent and rough. Decent fruit in the aroma, but overall a total mess.

Sampled at Dickinsonbeer’s Hoboken gathering - man, this stuff was pretty vile - perhaps it was because I had some really awesome beers this day, but this one stood out as the most terrible - looked at smelled like a raspberry wheat - tasted like cough syrup (the kind they make really sweet and fruity to try to fool children into taking it - but they know better) - just plain bad.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Paul’s Hoboken Gathering: Pours a hazy golden with some floaties. Artificial berry aroma, a bit perfumy. Very artificial flavor. All I can articulate to describe it is perfumy and medicinal. Hard to get down.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz from MrBendo - thanks, Todd! A truly odd beer. Pours a very dusky amber, with lots of sentiment wrestling for space with the fairly lively carbonation. Decent head, not much retention. The aroma is almost saccharine, making me wonder if the fruits on which this thing was aged were fresh or synthetic somehow (no reason to doubt the brewer, but that’s the vibe I got from the aroma). Somehow I thought this was going to be more like a tripel, with modest fruit qualities, when it ended up being the inverse. Pleasant razz flavors dominate, like Founders Rubaeus, and there’s an alkie burn there for sure. There’s a dull, almost flat finish to the beer, and I felt that more hops and spice would really have benefited this brew. Finishes thin, borderline flat. A respectable experiment.

Good, but a little too alcoholic for me. Had a cherry flavor to it with a bitter finish. Very powerful and full bodied. Not too much complexity. Must be sipped very slowly to enjoy. NIce aroma

Very fruity, i wish they had lowered the alcohol a bit or found a way to mask it more... excellent label...

750mL bottle thanks to wcampbell. This poured a hazy reddish body with no head. The aroma is really fruity - all different kinds. The taste is almost like a more tame version of DFH Fort, but in a way better because I thought Fort was way to alcholic tasting. This is still 9.5% and you can still taste some alcohol, but its drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[1122-20080226] 1pt6floz (c/o biegaman, w/ him, blankboy, GregClow, HogTownHarry, jerc, mds). Fruity strawberry orange cherry aroma with a bit of sweet grains. Hazy, orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. More sweet sweaty cherry in the flavour with slightly bitter fruit pip notes. Medium body. Very strange brew, plus the label has so much going on in it you keep finding hidden things every time you pick it up.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle at Flat Rock Saloon. Poured deep red with scant head. Astringent fruity aroma. Slight cherry/berry flavor with spicy finish. Bad beer and a waste of money.
