3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to Lunch for gifting me this bottle. Served in a SAVOR wine glass.
A: Pours a cloudy light copper color with a few bubbles on top after a hard pour. There’s a thin white collar with small bubbles around the edges, but that’s about all it gets.
S: The nose brings some faint stone fruits along with a bit of white pepper. Behind that is a touch of caramel and a bready malt base.
T: The flavor is wholly different from the nose, as there’s an abundance of fruit, at least compared to the nose, where there was only a faint whiff of fruitness. Here comes a bit of cherry and raspberry along with a faint black-plum presence in the background. A touch medicinal on the back end, though that aspect is fairly mellow.
M: Medium body with low-to-moderate carbonation and a bit of alcohol. Light fruity sweetness lingers in the background, heading to a finish that is surprisingly crisp. A bit of alcohol in the background, but nothing that wouldn’t be expected from a brew of this strength.
O: Pretty good. I enjoyed this quite a bit more than I expected to. The fruity elements to the flavor are quite nice, and the feel really rounds things out. Thanks again, Paul.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is cherry skin, passion fruit, wood. Thin mouth, cherry pith, passion fruit, light finish, good.

Aroma - has raspberries and dried berries, as well as Belgian yeast
Appearance - body is Mikado yellow, clean at first, with the bottom yeast becomes cloudy. This has some minor nucleation. The head is small only about 1/6" and white.
Taste - is fairly hard to detect. There is a little raspberry, some cherry, and other dried fruit. There is a chardonnay like quality about it. There is some Belgian yeast as well.
Palate - body is light, texture vinous, the carbonation is average, and the finish slightly dry and sweet and cloying.

had in a hotel room out of a dixie cup don’t @ me. Generally sweet with raisins, cherries. Its weird they refer to lambics on the bottle but this is not even close to a lambic style so i don’t quiet get the reference. I stayed up later than I wanted trying to contemplate the reference. I gave up. Medium to full body.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2016 Pours a cloudy reddish brown in color with little to no head. There is a pleasant sour cherry aroma. The flavor of the cherries is only slightly sour and tart then disappears quickly not lingering long enough on the palate. I was also disappointed in this. It is basically the Gran Met soaked in sour cherries but it really isn’t tart enough. It tastes more semi sweet than sour. Had again @ the Beers of the Burgh Fest on 14 May 2016. Much better this time. Nice tart and tangy with a somewhat belgian spice flavor.

Big cherry notes off the top. Nice off red color. Really a good lambic that just has a great balance of sweet to tart and alcohol. This will be a Thanksgiving staple beer for me.
