3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very nice golden, ruby/brown color. Three-finger head of slightly pinkish colored foam. Fades to a light skin, covering the surface. Lacing is sporadic, but slightly sticky.
Nose is very fruity. (Yay!) Big berry scents. Lots of blueberry. Nice hints of blackberries. I don’t know if they’re in there, or not, but I get a nice scent of raspberries, also. Nice presence of dark fruits, in general.
Good level of wheat presence. A very slight hint of some barnyard funk and a touch of spices, not unlike a good belgian brew.
Very light in flavor. The fruitiness is still there, but it’s more of a blended taste. It’s harder to distinguish each flavor. The blueberries are the only ones that I can pinpoint, and they are not that dominant, even.
The rest of the flavor follows the good belgian characteristics that the nose had.
Nice, light body. Very light and clean feeling. Not too crisp, or creamy. Smooth.
This would be fantastic on a nice spring afternoon (which is what the weather feels like, here, currently). Sitting on the porch/stoop or at the park/beach, this would be highly enjoyable.
I was wanting/expecting just a little bit more from this one, but, all-in-all, this is another good brew from the folks at Dogfish Head.
I’d drink this again, anytime.
Solid berry aroma. A red and blue body with a thin head that has a slight red tinge. Taste of raspberry tartness smoothed out by hint of blueberry. Dry, crisp and refreshing. Some Alcohol present chinchill (4993) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 20, 2017

750ml bottle @ home. Bottled 2015.03.07. Pours a hazy purple dark amber colour with a finger or two white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Nose is yeasty/bread, blueberry, and blackberry jam. Flavour is moderately sweet, jam like berry flavours, and a yeasty bready feel. Considering the high abv this brew has it drinks very smooth. Tasty a fruit beer! PhillyCraft (7216) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2016

Bouteille avec une date illisible mais qui a environ un an. Robe cuivrée légèrement trouble avec plusieurs particules en suspension. Léger col de mousse blanc et laiteux. Arômes de confitures de bleuets, levures belges bien engraissées, pâtisseries, mûre, figues. En bouche, saveurs de bleuets, levures belges, sucre résiduel, petit côté citronné, mûre surette. Arrière-goût d’alcool un peu désagréable. Texture huileuse et juteuse, corps moyen. Taux d’alcool beaucoup trop élevé pour ce type de bière. Une chance qu’on était deux sur cette bouteille. teamsale (273) - Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2016
On tap. Pours a hazy red copper with a thin off-white head and decent lacing. Smells of berries and alcohol. Tastes a bit of aspirin, sweet, berry, citrus. Very juice-like. Surprisingly low alcohol in the taste. Minor bitterness and a lasting berry aftertaste. Larry_Spurgeon (15) - Rio Rancho, New Mexico, USA - JUL 19, 2016
Drank with Uncle Matt. Bought at Majestic in Flagstaff. I think it's a 2015 bottling, couldn't read the printed date well. Cloudy reddish brown pour with a light weak head. Aroma light malt and sweet berry... Blah, blah, blah...OK taste, slightly sweet, with a little fruity with a bitter twang. So just OK. At $14.99 25.4 oz bottle, not worth it. Matt said it wasn't bad, didn't like the "dirty" aftertaste. mintzmeet (457) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2016
Oohee!! Love this. Nice red color. Great flavor, tastes like a lambic. Almost some raspberry flavor. Good stuff. rjplumer (1091) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 27, 2016
Rich blueberry raspberry aroma. An opaque red and blue body with a thin head that has a reddish tinge. Taste has a raspberry tartness smoothed out by hint of blueberry. Dry crisp finish. Refreshing and rich. A hint of warmth is the only clue to the true strength of this brew.
