A: A dark red/purpleish pour with a decent light red/pink head. Fades somewhat quickly and leaves just a little bit of lacing. Head easily revived with some swirling. I gave it extra points just for the uniqueness.
S: Typical belgian yeast clove smell is somewhat strong. Delicious raspberry aroma as you would expect. Nice sharp tartness.
T: Wow, more raspberry than I expected. It's sweet at first and then very tart, almost sour. Puckering for a moment when you first sip it, like eating underripe raspberries. Great transition of flavors. Just a hint of belgian yeast hiding in there, but mostly overpowered by the wonderful raspberries. Somewhat simple but amazing at the same time. A treat in each sip. No indication of any alcohol.
M: One of the highlights of this beer. Silky smooth raspberry syrup.
O: Great fruit beer. Might be the best one I've ever tried. It's not like fruit soda like some, and it's not like others where the fruit characteristics are buried.
