2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz. gusher that pours a cloudy orange with a light pink head and lots of floating particles. Aroma of raspberry and passion fruit juice. Flavor of those light fruits plus wheaty malt. Medicinal notes, with a strong alcohol presence. I generally enjoy fruit beers, but this was too watered down in terms of real fruit flavor, too strong, and the fruit didnít mesh with the malt backbone. Blech.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, delayed gusher. Aroma of stale rye, a citric fruitiness that belies the passion fruit but not so much the cherries and raspberries, caramel malts, a light hop spice. Flavor is medicinal and earthy, maybe the raspberries become more apparent, but overall remains generic/medicinal fruit with malts, sweet sugar, and light hops. Eugh, right when I thought I was getting used to this and might finish the glass the medicinal quality soars through the roof. Good bye.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz bottle, Wegmans State College. Pours a clear pinkish tinged copper body with a large frothy white head. Tons of vigorous carbonation. The nose is a mix of cherry, caramel, light raspberry, tropical fruits and an almost wheat like note. The flavor is on the sweet side with sort of a non-descript fruitiness, but itís more cherry than anything. Some thin caramel and a bit of a lingering chemical taste on the finish. Finishes rather thin and quick. Medium bodied, a little sticky up front, but thinner on the finish. Lots of fizzy spritzy carbonation. Pretty boring overall and not especially natural tasting.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An interesting beer if nothing else. I smells and tastes a beer brewed with Belgian Yeast, but the fruit is subtlely in every part of the beer.
I smelled the fruit, tasted the fruit, and the finish left the fruit in my mouth. Maybe the passion fruit over the cherries and rasberries.
So did I like it? Answer is, I am not sure. I certainly was entertained by the beer, and will get it again. So that was fun, but I would get it again more out of curiosity then infatuation.
Is that Love, sounds more like Voodoo?

Thanks Dan from PA.
Appearance: Pours an amber gold with a fluffy white head that eventually subsides to nothing. The body is cloudy with only a few visible rising bubbles.
Aroma: Sweet and sour cherries, possibly some brown sugar as well.
Taste: Sweet and sour cherries, followed by some metallic and bitter hops. Also has a lot Belgian Tripel yeast qualities in the finish. To summarize, it starts sweet and sour and ends dirty and earthy.

Overall: An interesting beer. I donít think Iíve ever had one like it. I think I need to try more, or never try it again to appreciate it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber/orange color with thin head. Fruit aroma, smells of peach and not so much of raspberry, cherry or passion fruit. Tart and acidic, dry flavor but with a slight medicinal finish. As this warms a bit more of the fruit sweetness on the back of the tongue becomes apparent. Alcohol is well hidden. Interesting.

Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy faint pink-orange-amber color with a medium sized pink-white head. The aroma was dryish, tart and fruity with notes of cherry and berry. The flavor was dryish, tarty and fruity with notes of cherry, berry and definite passionfruity. Throughout the beer was dryish, must and faintly spicy with a meidum length fruit and mustiness. Interesting.

Bottle acquired from goldtwins...THANKS LARRY!!! Not a bad little beer here...murky golden orange pour with a solid ivory head that left a bit of lacing. Nose is filled with raspberries, cherry skin, and cotton-candy. Flavor is quite sweet but not at all cloying and the alcohol is invisible. Raspberry, yeast, and some hops in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel. Pretty good.
