2.58/5  rDev -23.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured into a pint glass

A- Pours a hazy ambery orange color with a 1 finger soapy head that dies down to a thin film quickly.

S- Smells of raspberries, grain, and metal.

T- Raspberry tartness dominates, with a sort of grainy, metallic, magic marker aftertaste. There is also some residual sweetness and a tinge of hop bitterness.

M- light bodied and highly carbonated; the way this beer should probably be.

O- A nice one to drink one after the other on a hot summer day. Not a very complex beer, but refreshing enough.

12 oz bottle, no date.

pours a reddish copper color, big white head. actually a bit too much foam, hard to pour without overflowing glass. nice raspberry aroma, I'm surprised it's natural because of how strong it is. taste is a bit tart and puckering. not much sign of a saison in there at all. thin to medium body, good level of carbonation.

It's rare I like a fruit beer - but this one is good for a summerday.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A-pours a bright amber color with an average white head which leaves a small ring of lacing that lasts throughout.
S-high point of the beer. Tremendously atomic with raspberries wheat and lemon.
T-very complex flavor with sweetness from raspberries up front sour lemons follow and finished with a pepper note.
M-medium body with a peppery after taste and very dry feel.
O-well brewed and complex flavored balanced well with sweet, tart and spice. Unlike any other beer I have had.

3.45/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This is a reddish, clear brew with a flat-ish, white head. The aroma is of a sweet, slightly malty-mixed with tart raspberry. The wheat really comes through in the aroma. Also present are notable raspberry fruit characteristics. The taste is, at first, tart and refreshing. An underlying sweetness comes out after a few sips. The fruit is notable, and well represented. Medium to light in body. This is a nice, but not exceptional, beer.

3.78/5  rDev +11.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a shandy glass.

A- Pours a clear golden body with a modest very light pink head that reduces quickly and leaves no lacing.

S- Strong raspberries, grains, cherries.

T- Raspberry notes dominate here - sweet raspberry juice, some grainyness, light vanilla, creamy aftertaste. Not bad.

M- Light and refreshing. Medium carbonation

I liked this beer - nothing amazing but definitely something I'd pick up on a hot summer's afternoon.
