3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle from Wegman’s in State College, PA. Pours a cloudy amber-orange colored body with a finger-width, frothy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is caramel malts on the sweeter side with some fruits that have a bit of a cherry, slightly tart raspberry, and I guess a touch of passion fruit. A hint of yeast in there too. Flavor is similar and a bit better. Fresh fruit is a bit more apparent with a nice, light tartness coming from the raspberries. Some apricot-cherry and passion fruit plays well alongside the very light tartness. A touch of yeast comes in and gives off a hint of breadiness to the lightly sweetened caramel malts. Fruit comes out a bit more towards the end with a touch of tartness that helps this dry with a touch of earthy, yeasty spice. Clean with a very light bitterness before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Medium, smooth body with a soft, refreshing, moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent fruit beer. No hint of alcohol and pretty refreshing for the ABV. The flavor does offer a nice fruit mixture that blends well with the malts and offers a pleasant, very light tartness. Not overly sweet and well balanced all-around. Not earth shattering, but pretty good.

Aroma- listed fruits, booze, wood
Appearance- cloudy deep yellow, lots of sediment, unreal foam
Taste- big fruitiness. oak, herbs, earthiness, bitter finish
Palate- high carbonation, medium body
Overall- Strange brew, quite unique. First half of bottle was pretty refreshing, got cloying as time went on. Sediment was irritating as well.

Kind of a weird beer but in a good way. It has a cloudy amber with a hint of red look with just a thin layer for a head. The aroma has a lot of fruit and then a bit more fruit. The flavor is quite sour with all the fruits coming through. It has a lively carbonation making it very crisp. This is best ice cold on a hot day. Belt it down but beware of the ABV which is not noticed until you read the label..

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of.raspberries and passionfruit. Pours amber with almost 100 % foam head. It takes a while to dissipate so look out. taste of sour apple and passionfruit with just a hint of metal and yeast. its neat.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 July 2011, bottle. yellow with some light orange notes, a little sediment, steady bubbles. very fizzy - burst with fizz when i opened it, spilling half the 22oz bottle. definitely getting cherries and raspberries on the nose. a bit of lambic sourness. med/thin and a bit creamy. interesting. don’t think i would cal it a lambic without knowing it. it has a lot of dry cherry pit flavour, some fruit. not much of a lambic sourness in the flavor. nice enough.

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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 I’m guessing, and some some more sugary sweetness. All together this beer just doesn’t 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 don’t work here.
