3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours pink-copper into the glass, with an initial suds head that diminishes fully. The nose is of yeasty esters. Citric blackberry and some skins to finish. Not a lot of malt to substantiate the brew, which leaves the body somewhat thin and seltzery on the palate. I would not have ever guessed this was Belgian instead of an ordinary fruit beer. Not enough going on in the complexity department.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange-pink color with a thin creamy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of tart berries and grainy malts. The taste is tart and sweet berries with faint bready malts. Medium bodied, too much fruit which leads to a building sweetness that is not welcome.
