Straw color with a white head. I see no pink. Light fruit and lemon scents. Start has some pale malts, and light fruit which gives way to some lemon peel and sourness. The finish is all sour and the stomach is starting to turn. A curdled milk with lemon juice comes to mind. 2/11

The raspberry really comes through with the flavor and smell. This is a good summer beer even for a non beer drinker. It was a little too fruity for my taste, but it was still a good beer.

On tap at the brewery. Pours is a hazy red, almost pink. Some decent cherry flavor that provides no sourness, I dont get as much Belgian on this as I was expecting. Solid beer, not great, but solid.

Bacterial (2888) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2013
On draft at the brewery, hazy red with a small pink head. This is a nice beer, not too complex, certainly not sour or tart, but the berry character and earthiness is there. Not bad!

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Not as akin to a Belgian as advertised but the lingonberries shine through enough to make it interesting. Worth a try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Poured from bottle to pokal: Pours a bright, glowing gold with constant beading. A short lived white head swells briefly with the pour, sinking back to a thin cap. Lots of smooth, fresh tartness. Sour grapes, yeast and clean grain. Very unique beer. Sort of drinks like a berry infused Belgian golden. Unavoidable tart finish. Nice summer beer. Much enjoyed this one.

bsp77 (724) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Summit Scandia Chalice. Appearance: Pale yellow-orange with just a hint of pink. Head foamed up but then disappeared. Aroma: Sweet and tart berries and citrus, light bready malts, with an underlying clove-like dryness. Taste: Somewhat like a classic Tripel - with light bready malts lightened by sugar, cloves, citrus and the tiniest touch of banana. Of course, the lingonberries add a whole new dimension with some nice tartness. Palate: Moderate carbonation, medium body. Despite a somewhat sweet beginning, it ends more tart and dry. Overall: Very refreshing summer beer with just the right degree of tartness. Considering the abv, this is a dangerous beer because it begs to be consumed in vast quantities.

Drake (12433) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2011
Sampled on draft at GTMW 2011. Pours a hazy orange with a large offwhite head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of bitter hops, bread, earthy and sweer sugary notes. The taste is tart fruity notes, bready and faint spices. Medium bodied.
