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.

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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite - Jersey City, 2/18/11
Aroma: The nose is really sweet, lots of fruity notes, some yeast, honey, and candied sugar
Appearance: The pour is a cloudy golden-orange with a small white head
Flavor: The taste is pretty darn sweet as well, lots of fruity flavor both candied and not
Palate: Medium bodied with a tingly feel on the tongue and a lasting sugary feel on the mouth
Man is this one a sugarfest, itís not bad, not some crazy sugary mess, but just a touch on the messy side. I would say that it could probably use some rounding. Also, that feeling on the inside of my mouth that it is covered in a slight coating of sugar is a bit off-putting from a beer. Despite those criticisms, this isnít a bad brew, but I canít go too high with the score.

Cloudy orange brown beer. Slightly sour dry malt. Faint morello cherry, a little raspberry. Smooth dry finish. An undertone of brandy and passion fruit. A fairly unique beer but slightly odd as well.

Otown Throwdown III. Pours a hazed coppery orange with a slight reddish tinge- dissipating head. Aroma is ruity, tart rapsberries, passionfruit, waxy and slightly medicinal on some overlay sweet malt. Flavor of the malt dries out a bit in the end- but there is a lot of tart fruitiness all around, but it is waxy, juicy, slick and a bit too earthy- yeast mixed in there with fruity esters makes this just a bit too messy for me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma:Sweet cherries, raspberry, fruit punch.
Appearance:Caramel in color with low head and moderate to good lacing.
Taste:Right away this beer tastes like fruit punch! This beer has lots of sweet fruit, not tangy. The cherries, raspberries, and tropical fruit flavors stand out on the foretaste, and fade on the midtaste. The aftertaste is a little like green vegetables along with raisins and figs.
Palate:This beer has a light body with great carbonation. The carbonation dances lightly along the entire length of my tongue, pleasantly.
Overall:This is a really unique fruit beer, as itís sweet and not tangy. It still has a lot of complex flavors, and is quite refreshing.

22 oz. bottle via trade with michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! Pours a cloudy chestnut-amber color with a small off-white head that fades quickly. Aroma of honey, caramel malts, oak, toffee, maraschino cherries, and raspberries. Flavor is also much heavier on the sweet honey, caramel malt, toffee, and syrupy notes, and ligher on the fruits. Tastes like wine on the finish. For a fruit beer, this is sugary sweet and not too fruity. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a syrupy mouthfeel. Disappointing based on the awesome description and label.
