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.

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.

3.53/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

This brew pours a cloudy copper with a small white head which dissipates quickly. Heavy carbonation and light lacing on the glass.

Smell-Raspberries, apples, bubblegum also there is a wheat like, yeasty earthy wet straw smell.

Taste-Bubblegum, raspberries, apples, cloying sweetness moving to tartness. Slightly earthy and dank on the backend.

The mouthfeel is tingly, due to the carbonation. Slightly dry taste left in the mouth after swallowing.

Overall, this is an interesting take on a Saison; it is much more sweet than earthy or yeasty. Not bad at all and worth a try but this brew is so sweet I don't believe I could have more than two in a session.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

On tap in a pint glass.

A- Poured a nice looking reddish-amber color with a 1-finger pure white head that tapered quickly and left nice lacing.

S- Big blast of raspberry. Some faint spice and malt.

T- Raspberry, lots of it.

M- Thin, minimal body. Soda-pop-like.

O- Saison? Hardly. This is a fruit beer at best and its best is not very good.

Serving type: on-tap
