This beer was very promising of different. The head poured relatively bright and spritzy at first, which settled into a haze lasting the remainder of the glass. The aroma was very yeast forward. The flavor was primarily sugar dominant, with an increased bitterness that cloyed into the finishing. In the finishing, the briar fruit was definetly more up front than cherry or passion fruit, which might explain the sour dry drop off at the end. Overall a very interesting beer. I wish the conditioning yeast had better attenuation and clung to the bottom of the bottle, but very enjoyable. I would drink it again.

Draft pour at the brewery during RBSG 2016. Haz gold. White head. Nose of pineapple and mango. Medium body. Flavor is lots of fruit and the finish is bitter sweet. Tasty.

rondphoto (3962) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 27, 2016
on tap @ Voodoo / Homestead PA --- Slightly hazy medium / dark amber, beige that disappears, light streaks of lace. Taste is semi-sweet caramel malt imbued with tropical fruit. Light carbonation and a short finish rob this of the necessary power to complete a big brew. Just average.

burnt orange appearance. hard to get an aroma on this other than sweet and yeast. taste though, watermelon, melon, lemon and even some passion fruit thrown in. has even a welchs grape juice flavor and this is all piled on top of a great belgian yeast presence. very resilient beer. fruit hangs on until the last taste.

JStax (5034) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2016
Draft pour at the source. The beer is a hazy copper with a white head of foam. The aroma has stone fruits and citrus notes. Hugely sweet beer. Thick mouthfeel. Big body and medium carbonation.

DuffMan (9495) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 18, 2016
On tap @ Homestead location, RBSG 2016. Same appearance as the Granmet. Still sticky-sweet, but with prominent fresh seedy raspberry. I liked it better than the original unfruited Granmet, but still too sweet and estery for me.

slowrunner77 (9924) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 11, 2016
Markedly nicer aroma than the base beer, which was nice enough already. Cherries and raspberries mostly, while the passionfruit comes in in the aftertaste. Pleasant, if not quite a standout.

Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Thought the name on the bottle was "Voodoo Love Chile" I was expecting a different type of Fruit Beer. Amazing aromas of cherries and raspberries. Pours a clear golden, almost pinkish, with the slightest amount of head. Nice and smooth for a 9.5%, I could see myself enjoying one of these on a beach!
