Draft to taster at FoBAB. Pours a reddish brown color with a thin off white film. The aroma and flavor have bigger raspberry character, sweet malts, caramel, wood, more big raspberry fruit character, some tart character, you better like raspberries.

Draft: Pours tea brown with a short, beige head. Aroma is baked bread, raspberry and alcohol. Taste is boozy, berries, caramel. Ok, but a little too forceful on the alcohol presentation.

Tmoney99 (14206) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Draft sample at IBGWF 12. Poured dark reddish brown color and an average frothy off-white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy tart rasperry fruit aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium tart fruit flavor with a medium tart fruit finish of moderate duration. Refreshing fruit beer.

Sampled at the Brewery. Dirty earthy nose with alcohol and malt. Clear yellow body with a thin head. Grain pale malts and alcohol flavors with a raspberry yogurt finish. Dry boozy. Im glad I stuck with the sampler, this would be tough to finish. 7/3/7/3/13 3.3

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Tap: Ruby hue with a minimal head nor lace. The aroma is RASPBERRY, oh there is some pale biscuity malt, mineral water and slight ginger like spicy tones. The taste is full frontal twangy raspberry (and a little grape too) with a pale malt old school British kilned tone. Light peppery and clove notes with a moderately boozy finish. The mouth feel is somewhat sticky and lush, soft bodied and warming alcohol but not abrasive. It is okay, nothing more other than being different. I guess I hoped for more twang or complexity... wild yeast perhaps?
