There were several beers I tasted at PilsnerPeter’s gathering that were my first samples from that brewer, this being one of those. Growler. Pours a mostly clear reddish gold with just a bit of a pinkish tint. Pleasant aroma of malt and orange. This beer fallls apart in the flavor department, which features weak malt and Hawaiian Punch. Dries out towards the finish with light-medium bitterness. I hope my next beer from Pisgah is better than this one!

notalush (5897) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2009
Growler at Peter’s NY gathering - lightly hazy reddish brown - man, this tastes like raspberry cough syrup mixed with some wheaty character and light belgian-ish phenols - quite sweet, adding to the syrupy character that reminds me of cough medicine - blah.

Growler at PilsnerPeter’s Spring Gathering. Pours a clear ruby brown with a thin white head. Light fruit, though barely identifiable as raspberry. Medium bodied and sweet. Rather uneventful.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2009 On tap at the brewery. Pours a light pinkish with a violet hue , hazy and a nice lasting white head. Aroma is fruity with raspberries- slight tart cherry- and fruit juice but is also spicy with Belgian yeast- and a bit peppery, slight solvent and some wheaty cream character. Flavor seems a bit weak and watered down for a 8% fruit beer- some flowery notes- violet, then some weak cherry and rasp fruit cocktail with some wheaty and doughy notes- more spice and phenols in the end. Just seemed a bit on the bland side.

Drake (14045) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 4, 2009
Sampled on draft at the brewery. Pours a clear light red color with a medium head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma is tart cherry and raspberry. Taste is sweet cherry, pineapple and bitter hops. No alcohol noticeable. Medium-full bodied.

3.6
KAF (448) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - JAN 18, 2009
Growler. Hazy light red pour with no head. Cherry nose with some hint of other fruits. The flavor brings out more cherry but the raspberry is noticeable.

3.7
Skyview (6093) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2009
Sampled during BA monthly gathering at Stub & Herb’s in Minneapolis, MN. From a growler, pours a hazy reddish caramel brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and thin ring. Aroma of wheat malt, some bing cherries, flowery hops, a hint of red berries, and some vanilla. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of cherries, caramel malt, some light earthy spices, and a hint of raspberries. Finish is semi-tart with a nice balance of cherry and caramel malt with plenty of alcohol warmth.
