4.5/5 rDev +1.4%
Current batch is 9.8% abv. Had as a growler from Triumph Brewing Company in Princeton, NJ filled on 6/11/11.
Appearance: An opaque grapefruit color, minimal pink head, leaves good lacing
Smell: Tart raspberries and some good funky yeast
Taste: Tart fresh raspberries and good funky yeast, with some residual sweetness, but just enough so that the tartness doesn't get overwhelming. A very good balance.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full body, crisp carbonation, and a tart finish
Overall: Excellent beer that isn't anything out of the ordinary, it is one of the things I love about Triumph, they have something to please everybody. And, for $13 a growler refill (growler prices went up since last time I was there) this is a steal. Love it!

4.33/5 rDev -2.5%
Picked up a growler from the Triumph in Princeton back in July and finally have time to review it from my notes. This was poured from a growler into a Duvel Belgian Ale Tulip glass.
Appearance: This poured a murky reddish-pink with less than a 1/4" head which quickly dissipated to a white ring only. Lacing was barely noticeable.
Smell: This one smelled great to me. I immediately picked up a sour raspberry, followed by the aroma of an unfiltered wheat beer, which matched the murky pour.
Taste: Initial sweet rasberry wheat flavor, which was followed by a moderate sourness. A very good blend of flavors. Sort of reminded me of a lambic. If you don't like the fruit flavor in your beer then this wouldn't be the style for you.
Overall: This is a slow sipper, like a fine wine. I really enjoyed the style. I brought this to a 4th of July picnic and it was an instant hit, even from the hardcore IPA drinkers. I wish I would of got a second growler, which I definitely will next year. This style should be brought back every year.
