3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from the bottle. Pours a crystal clear pinkish color with a bit of a gold hue to it. Head is creamy pink and goes from almost two fingers to almost nothing fairly quickly. Aroma is dominated by raspberry, followed by sour cherry, and then some wheat malt sweetness. Tastes follow the aromas with a bit more of the sour cherry giving a nice dose of tartness and last of the finish is typical wheat malt. This is quite refreshing and tasty. Need to have a blind taste test with this and a UFO raspberry hefeweizen from Harpoon.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear candy-red colored body, thin pinkish layer of bubbles, sparse lacing. Raspberry Jolly Ranchers, light lactic yogurt. Medium to light bodied, assertive sweetness, mild carbonation, lingering artificial finish. Ok. Just not my kind of fruit beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright red-plum color with a medium sized soapy white head that faded quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was musty and dust with a bit of tart vague berries. The flavor was dryish and tart with vague berries, dust, must and cracker. Medium length tart berry finish. Light to medium body. Meh.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Draft at HopsScotch, 1/17/14
Aroma: The nose is fruity/raspberry and yeasty mostly, some wheaty notes as well
Appearance: It pours a clear pinkish-red color with an off-white colored head on it
Flavor: The flavor of this one is a little bit sweet and a little bit tart, balanced between the two
Palate: The body is on the lighter side, leans a little fizzy, with a clean, tart finish
I thought this one was a nice fruit beer. Sometimes these beers get way too sweet, but this one does a nice job of balancing the tartness and sweetness.

Pours a nice reddish brown with a pink head. Has a subtle cherry smell to it. Tastes tart but very light. Leaves a very clean finish. Its not a bad beer but definitely something I’d drink in the summer.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Did not realize this was a lambic when I pulled it off the Seasonal wall. It’s not bad, but has an odd sweet bitterness, definitely tart. It’s not bad, but something that is more of a sipping beer than a drinking beer.
