3.85/5  rDev +1%

eyes...
audible sizzle as the head fizzles, the head retreats into an O-ring with haste, brown hue with highlights of ruby and almost purple tinge, the high alcohol content lays its legs along the glass, a studied glance reveals plenty of carbonation fleeing the depths to escape into the ether

nose...
tart berries, a touch of the alcohol lurking underneath, some malt tone factors in, aged honey notes are also apparent. this almost reminds me of the maneschevitz wine I was subjected to in temple as a youth (oy)

taste etc...
definite dominance of fruit flavor, followed by some honey sweetness which then leads in some slight bitter notes that are tempered by the carbonation, no real sense of the monster ABV lurking here (just some warming in the ole gullet), the more I sip the more this
reminds me of red wine, it has that tart bite but yet strong tight finish (but the malt and honey seem to smooth it out), nearing the end of this bomber I am getting some subtle apple flavor as well as a good idea of how strong this stuff is! In terms of body this is medium
in case I missed that...

verdict?
wow, the interesting factor on this beer is off the charts. It is an experience unto itself. Did I love it ? hmmm. No. Did I appreciate the craft that created such an interesting brew ? Hell yes. This one is hard to grade but man is this thing worth checking out. Definitely try this, to call this a fruit beer would be an injustice, this thing is a unicorn. Rogue proves once again
why they have been around so long. They take chances and some times they create some crazy weird off beat thing that rocks.

4.13/5  rDev +8.4%

750 ml bottle poured into a tall curvy glass.

Appearance: Pours a very dark red with hints of purple. Lots of bubbles floating up. Surprisingly translucent for the color. Big off-white/tan head dissipates fairly quickly, but leaves little to no lacing on the side of the glass.

Smell: Berries. Honey. Sweetness.

Taste: That's... different. The honey and berries are there, absolutely, but are very much balanced by the hops. It's got a little bit of a bitter bite to it that plays very well with the sweetness. I don't taste the 11+% ABV at all.

Mouthfeel: Very clean. Doesn't linger at all.

Overall: I'd refused to try another Rogue after the Pumpkin Ale incident last October out in Virginia Beach until I saw this. It's pretty nice overall and makes me more willing to try more Rogue varieties again.

750ml bottle.

A: Pours a dark reddish-light brown with crimson highlights under a solid 1-finger thick off-white, slightly pinkish head which fades to a thin cap and yields semi-rings and spots of lace.

N: Grainy, sweetness, floral, fruity berries.

T: Berries up front, mild honey sweetness, faint heat, caramel, faint citrusy hops.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Finishes with some berry infused heat.

O: Very unique and interesting. Creative. Like the mild sweetness from the honey, the hidden ABV makes for a dangerous long lasting bottle.
