Poured from a 16 oz bottle into a 8 oz glass. Split 4 ways.

A- pours a pinkish, dark amber with very little head and no lacing.

S- raspberries are there but not as overpowering as would of thought. Alcohol, bread, dark fruits, chocolate.

T- light raspberries, booze, spices, some chocolate with medicinal characteristics. Again, the raspberries do not overpower like you would expect.

M- full body and low carbonation. Syrupy and boozy.

O- this is a light raspberry boozy beer with some light chocolate. The medicinal notes reminded of jaeger.

From notes on Saturdays tasting. 2012 vintage.

A- Pours a translucent amber with virtually no head or lacing.

S- Raspberry liquor, bready malt, dark chocolate and burnt caramel. Very simple, but inviting

T- Raspberry flavored candy that is a bit medicinal, raspberry syrup, burnt caramel, bready malt and dark chocolate. Very little presence of alcohol.

M- Practically no carbonation with a syrupy body that finishes with just a bit of heat.

O- A very interesting beer to say the least. Lot's of raspberry, but not that fresh raspberry flavor that you find in beers such as Blushing Monk or Raspberry Tart. Quite a big and syrupy beer that should be sipped with friends. A couple ounces is more than enough.

This review is from notes taken in the wee morning hours of Sunday 5-19-13, when I was able to get into Kuhnhenn's a little after midnight for my bachelor party. I had a couple things there, but this was the one I had to rate.

It had a reddish brown body with a finger of head. This dissipated into a frothy ring and left light lacing.

I wish I could have smelled it a little better, but I was a little stuffed up from allergies. What I did get was raspberry cream, or some kind of raspberry dessert smell.

The taste was all raspberry. Raspberry cream, raspberry cough syrup, a little bit of booze helping out on that call.

Mouthfeel was medium bodied. It coated the tongue. It was perfect. Refreshing (yes, I said it) while still a tad syrupy.

Overall I wish the allergies hadn't been acting up so I can be sure what I smelled and tasted was accurate. I had to rate it as I perceived it as a rare chance for any Ohioan to do so very often. I was very happy to be there in Kuhnhenn's where so much magic goes down.

Shared this bad boy at DLD. 2012 vintage served in a Deschutes snifter.

A: Pours a brownish, reddish color with a pretty still body. No real head forms on the pour.

S: Lots of sweet booze and malt with blast of smashed raspberries. Bready malts make up most of the flavor profile in the nose.

T: Tons of sweet raspberry. Much more than nose conveyed. Very jammy in nature with a little boozy heat. A mild burn is there with a heavy, bready malt profile to back it up.

M: Low carbonation with a chewy texture and mouthfeel. Sweet and hot on the finish.

O: This was good, but it definitely needs some time. The boozy notes are right up front and need some time to settle in.
