BARLEYWINEO (106) - Tacoma, USA - APR 28, 2012
A: Poured a glowing pinkish ruby color with decent carbonation leaving a nice pinkish white cap
S: Fresh raspberries but faint and simple
T: Not sure what I was getting or expecting from this beer. It has an extremely light tart almost non-existent with fresh raspberries with an accompannying jelly roll like influence
M: Light, fruit, carbonation a bit high, dry
O: Nice, easy to drink beer but not amongst my favorites but then again I am not a fan of the style

On tap at uber. Listed as fruit beer, seemed more sour to me. Anyways, big nose of fresh juicy raspberries. Lovely, underneath that is soft Belgian tripel sweetness as well as tart notes. Pours brilliant red, nice clarity and great off white/pinkish head. The flavor is bright raspberries, tart, sour - almost puckering at points, but followed by fresh raspberry fruit notes. Light sweet tripel base shows up as balance, but the bright raspberry freshness and tartness combine to form a really interesting and well done beer.
