Sample from the lady’s bottle. Aroma of raspberries, strawberries, malt, water. Flavor is artificial berries, metallic, yeast, barley. Thin body and flavor dissipates quickly. Interesting brew. Points for effort. And charity! Go Yards!

Pours a bright pink with one finger of quickly dissipating head. Aroma is sweet with cherries, cranberries, and hints of tartness. Taste is balanced with moderate sweetness and a crisp dry finish. I can see how some wont enjoy it, but overall a great beer!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled July 16, 2014.
Glass: Duvel tulip.
Appearance: Vibrant reddish amber body with a tall light pink/white head.
Aroma: Sweet raspberry comes through the most with a hint of cherries and tartness. Not a bad aroma, but definitely not tart indicative.
Taste: Mildly tart upfront that lingers slightly through the finish, mildly sweet intro of cherries and raspberry. Finish is dry, slightly tart and refreshing, reminds me of cranberry lingering.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: A slight step better than what I remember from last year, but not my cup of tea. There’s nothing technically wrong with it, I just feel that it misses some marks.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice ruby and actually pink tinted copper coloured body with a thin, half a centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of raspberries, cherries, yeast, sour grapes and a hint of flowers - very nice and floral! Light-bodied; Strong elderberry flavour with hints of raspberry, cherries, yeast and a light amount of wheat and grain. Aftertaste shows some icing sugar sweetness, a touch of grass and herbs and the larger fruit presence, especially of raspberries and even some currants. Overall, a very light and fruit-forward beer with a subdued flavour in the middle and not much complexity. That said, a decent beer throughout and while not great, definitely worth trying if you like the style and/or cause...but don’t expect anything sour out of this one. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Alexandria (Old Town), Virginia on 13-October-2013 for US$1,99 sampled at home in New Paltz on 30-August-2014.

12oz bottle from Pinnochio’s. Pours a bright, pinkish red color with a thin, white head. Aroma is fruit, raspberry. Medium on the palate with lively carbonation. Flavor is sweet-tart, light raspberry fruitiness, maybe a little citric lemon, with a light tart finish. If only this beer tasted like it smelled. Still, not terrible.

Bottles shared by Kimmie. Aroma of tart raspberry and shortbread. Pours muddy hazy peach with a nice big pink head. Taste is tart raspberry, apple juice, biscuit, and slight funk. Much more tart than I anticipated and that made it surprisingly delicious. A pleasure to drink.
