Ruby-purple brew with light haze and some sporadic bubble streams. Light pink head is small and dying.
Smells of raspberry puree, pale and toasty malts, and some herbaceous hops. Lightly grassy, yet vinous. Hints of fresh tobacco.
Sweet raspberry jam with a slight tartness. Tannic qualities tie in with a quiet, but stodgy, hop. Finishes with a mineral note and earthy bitterness. Really feels gripping with tannins in the mouth. Coupled with the light tartness, it's a real tooth-stripper. Medium body weight with a well-placed carbonation level works decently. Nothing gooey about it. A fruity fruit ale with perks.
I'll take this one over Cerise, but it's a ways still from Blushing Monk. Works for what it is. A nice treat after a long hard day's work.

Pours an attractive red shade, somewhere in between burgundy and cardinal. A soft pink covering of foam rests nicely on top. The aroma is sweet and complex. While a trace of hops and grains can be detected, the drinker is overwhelmed with ripe raspberry. A tart aspect mixes well with what is perceived to be the malts. The flavor is quite similar to the qualities in the aroma... it is a bit earthy, a little bitter, and is very wine-like. It's got a nice, crisp finish... similar to a fresh cider. Overall I rather like this one, especially as I am not the biggest fan of fruit beers. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys adult beverages, except perhaps those who might not like something that's moderately tart.
