Trade from Garry. 2011 Bottle. Thanks! Last Backstage to try that I missed out on. Pours a deep dark red with a dark pink one finger head. Aroma is super sweet raspberry sherbet and just a hint of dry yeast funk, then more raspberries. Beautiful! Flavor follows right on with raspberry sherbet, and somehow super creamy whoah. There might be a hint of yeast in there, but that is stretching. pure raspberry bliss here. Higher carbonation than I expected that really lightens up the sweet raspberry syrup. Otherwise pretty sticky and thick. Not quite NG Rasp Tart but a close second and much more decadent. This is yum!
