Snuck a few sips from my SWMBO's pint glass while we're sitting here watching Ghost Adventures.

A: Pours a hazy malty peach color with only slight head and a barrista's hint of lacing across the surface.

S: Smells of raspberries and wet hay on the nose.

T: Hints of raspberry, mango and star fruit on the tongue with a biscuit yeast middle. Nice balance on the alcohol with a touch of plum on the aftertaste. Not over fruity, just well balanced.

M: Drinks easily. Very refreshing beer. Minimally carbonated.

O: Very nice crowd pleasing spring festival concert going beer.

A: The beer is yellowish amber in color and poured with a finger high off white head that died down but never completely faded away.
S: There are strong aromas of raspberries in the nose.
T: The initial taste is filled with pleasant flavors of tart raspberries; however the aftertaste is off and doesn’t leave you longing for another sip. The citrus flavors from the hops and the raspberries don’t seem to pair well together.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Provided you can get past the finish, the beer isn’t that difficult to drink.

cherries and hints of woody notes. Spices of all kind blended in, rich as all hell, this was more of a cherry ale then a stout, but superb. A Rich, tart and yet sweet cherry notes, peppery and loaded with spice. Such complexity,richness, this was indeed exactly what I was looking for. Smooth, light body with a nice carbonation that was great for an ale, but light
