3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served in a tulip glass.
AROMA: The aroma of this beer is unbelievable, really good! Lots of fruit, and some sweetness.
APPEARANCE: Golden color with some hints of red. Quite a bit of white frothy head.
TASTE: The passion fruit is really prominent - almost like passion fruit tea. There are other fruit tastes here too - raspberries and cranberries. Some spices and coriander are also present. This is real dry and there is little sweetness.
PALATE: Light bodied and a bit oily. Better than average carbonation.
OVERALL: Very different and intriguing, I liked this but I think it could have used a bit more sweetness.

Gift from SJ. Hazy amber pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma of bread and spice, and fruit, but not over powering.
Palate was of belgian yeast, berries and cherry. yet done tastefully. iT WAS OK.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pour is fairly clear orange in color with a small white head. Smells like fruit juice with apples, cherry, and sugar. The large fruit presence is lacking in the flavor of the beer. What bit of fruit their is hits right away and then quickly fades. Tastes of paper, some cherries, some spice from the yeast Iím guessing, and some some more sugary sweetness. All together this beer just doesnít work for me. I blame it on the beet sugar because I fucking hate the beets.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared with mattyb83 pours amber/orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is very sweet and fruity, cherries, raspberries, candied sugars, and spices. Immediate dirty mineral bitterness with sweetness from the berries. Taste like drinking vodka while chewing Flintstone vitamins. Aroma is nice but the flavors in the taste just donít work here.

Starts out like purple haze but ends almost like a lambic, not sure if it is all it could be.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
In short: A very strange fruity blonde ale. Weird and hard to describe.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed about 6 months after purchase.
The look: Mostly clear dark blonde body, lots of small particles, small white head
In long: Strong nose of fruity bubblegum, ground cherries, some papaya, some avocado. Taste is strange. To me the dominant taste was like eating gooseberries with the musk. Also some bubble gum, passion fruit, raspberry seeds, crushed aspirins, peaches. Overall quite sweet. A mild tartness at the end for a desperate attempt to make it a bit refreshing. Something really strange about the taste that I canít really put into words. On the plus side I must say that the alcohol was surprisingly well hidden, never would have I guessed 9%+. I wasnít thrilled by this Love Child. And btw, if a child is a gift from God, then an adopted children has been re-gifted.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from Pinocchios. It pours a clear orange color with a foamy white head. It smells like strawberry and raspberry starbursts. The flavor is a little sweet with notes of candied raspberries, cherries, and strawberries. A little artificial with the fruit flavor. The sweetness starts to become more and more prevalent as I drink more of it. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation and a sweet finish. Not that great unless you are into those sweet Lindemans lambics.

750mL. Definitely not a lambic as indicated in the label. The pour is a clear orange amber with a small white head. Okay retention and little webby lace. Aroma is heavily sweet cherry pie, homemade cherry tart, baked cherries. Rich and full for fruit beer. Taste is metallic, heavy sweetness, heavy old candies, candy corn, sickly sweetness. Insanely cloying and heavy fusel alcohol. Pretty poor.

Bottle split with Ben4321. Pours a nice golden cloud. Aroma is super fruity, although I donít have the nose to pick them out. I expect a fruit beer to taste that way, this one was just kind of rough to finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tried at UPick6 tasting of Voodoo Brewery.Tart fruit aroma of raspberries, cherries, and Yeast. Poured copper in color with a small, fizzy, white head that diminished very quickly. Very hazy. Medium sweet flavor. Tastes of alcohol, raspberries, cherries, pepper?, bitter hops, and yeast. Light to medium body. Soft carbonation, which is a surprise seeing how fizzy it was when it poured. Not bad, but wonít seek this one out.
