3.98/5 rDev +14.4%
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Unibroue tulip.
A: Pours a hazy orange color with 1/2 finger of off-white head. Some retention and lace.
S: Sweet malt, good spicy tripel esters, light raspberry underneath. Quite pleasant.
T: Spicy, sweet bready malts up front quickly transition to a flash of raspberry on the finish. Pepper, raspberry and light fruits linger on the aftertaste.
M: On the light side of a medium mouthfeel with a little syrup that coats the tongue.
O: I like this. Wasn't sure what to expect as Belgian styles are not typical for Millstream. It's a bit of an oddball, but still quite enjoyable.

The beer was served in a 12-oz glass.
Appearance: Very cloudy gold in color with about 1/2" of white foam and a fair amount of lacing.
Smell: Lots of fruit, raspberry, apricot, peach. No hops detected and not much of a malt aroma either. Just a very potent fruit aroma.
Taste: This beer was definitely all about fruit--lots of raspberries as the name implies, but I also tasted lots of apricot and a slight bit of banana in the background. And, as expected from the smell, there was little in the way of hops.
Mouthfeel: Very nice mouthfeel. It had a huge amount of body, just bordering on syrupy.
Overall: Not bad. It would make a great dessert beer.

This brew bears little resemblance to most Tripels I've had. There's a deep golden hue, slightly hazed,but the head is non-existent with only the occasional slow bubble arising from below. Where's the carbonation? The first smell makes me think of cheap malt liquor. I get a hint of sweetness and faint raspberry notes, but otherwise no other esters/fruit/yeast or anything resembling a Belgian Ale.
The taste has some intense candied maltiness, and sort of an artificial raspberry twist. It's suprisingly alcoholic and burns a bit at the finish. I'm not liking it much at all. Mouthfeel is a bit syrupy with too thin a carbonation for style.
I can't really say anything good about this beer at all. It's like they made a terrible Tripel and thought to add some cough syrup-like artificial raspberry flavor to boot. I can't believe they could have used real raspberries in this. I recommend you stick to German styles Millstream.
