Pours a dark red with a healthy purple/pinkish head.
Smells of raspberries of course. A little Belgian yeast smell gets through as well. The raspberry is definitely the overpowering scent though.
Raspberry again dominates on the palate. It starts off with a sweetness from the raspberries, but it is far from cloying and this coming from someone who detests most sweeter beers. The raspberries provide a nice tartness at the end of the palate and it finishes pretty dry. I normally don't like Belgian yeast strains, but the tartness of the raspberry balances the Belgian aspect perfectly. It almost has a lambic quality to it.
Pretty full and syrupy. Alcohol is fairly well hidden, but the mf is definitely not the highlight.
I split this bottle with the girlfriend. Not sure if I could finish a whole one myself, but we both enjoyed 1/2.
