Pours red-tinged amber with a light pink head.
Nose shows raspberry along with soft tropical fruit and very soft clean malt.
Similar flavours with tart raspberry dominating and just a little sweet clean malt showing underneath.
Nice light body, could use a little more carbonation though.

I was told that this was a Trashy Blonde with fruit and using Belgian yeast, whatever it is, I was not a fan.

A - Dark orange to amber, billowy head and nice lacing.
S - Corriander, grass, earth and banana. . .this could work in other ways but not here.
T - Grassy, straw, boring, slight hop bite, watered down, a bit tart at the end
MF - Thin and watery, rough carbonation, made me not want to finish it
O - I do not remember not finishing a beer (maybe I passes out in th emiddle of a few, but if you can't remember then it never happened!!), especially at a bar where I feel I paid too much for said beer. I ALMOST did not finish this.
