3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the brewery. Cloudy dark pink body with small light pink head. Big raspberry notes in the aroma and flavour, with a nice sweet-tart balance. Ginger is hard to spot at first, but starts to come through on the back of the palate as the beer warms, with a hint of pepper and musty yeast as well. Could use a bit more complexity, but still very nice to drink.
Deep red pour with a thin white head. Beautiful pour really. There's a bright fruitiness and a touch of light pepper. Light ginger and a lot of fruitiness with a touch of sweetness. The ginger is really subtle - presenting more as fruit than spice. Bright fruit but low acidity. Nice fruity brew. Tranquillity (2640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 3, 2017
Draft at the brewery. Hazy red body with a pink head. The aroma has raspberry and some tartness. The taste is funky and has a lot of raspberry with a ginger finish. Spab (4338) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2017
625 ml bottle picked up at the brewpub. Pours a murky deep pink colour with small light pink head. Aroma is full of fresh raspberries with lemon and a hint of spiciness. Flavour really bursts with fresh partly sweet, partly tart raspberries, some lemon, light ginger and a bit of pepper in a drying finish. Mellow carbonation. Nice one.
