3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium peachy red with a huge (3-4 finger) light pink pillowy head that receded slowly down to a medium film and collar with some excellent sticky lacing.
The aroma was intense with the smell of raspberry and had a hint of grain malts, a sweaty yeast and a touch of wheat.
The taste had a sweet tart flavor to it and a big dose of raspberry throughout with a very sweet candi sugar finish. The flavor lasted an average duration with the intense sweetness fading away at a good steady pace.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation.
Overall an excellent flavored Witbier that is more like drinking a wine cooler that a beer. But then again a wine cooler is a malt beverage...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy pink amber and a weird haze with contrasting white ringed head. Lush sweet fruit, vast over sweet fruit. Initial taste is kids juicebox, kinda dried fruit on an unwashed chair. Decent carbonation and chalky dryness. Finishes bleating sweetness, light diluting juicy and linger is swift pick up dry brassy sweet. Blurgh.

250ml bottle. Hazy orange with oversized pink-tinged white head. Fruity if a bit artificial cough drop-like aroma. Raspberry and blackberry in there. Taste is also an artificial fruity affair and less redeemable, with the fizzy carbonation not to my taste. All a bit artificial.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Decent raspberry aroma. For a silly fruit beer, it has a fairly enticing bright pinkish-red appearance. Quite sweet - essentially candy - mild sour notes. Works well as a dessert beer if you’re in the mood for something sweet (which I was), but couldn’t possibly recommend it in any other mood.
