Poured into a snifter. Release #4, 9.8% ABV.

3.5 A: Clear orange amber color. One finger of frothy pink-tinted white head falls quickly, but does leave some lacing behind.

4.25 S: I really like how the raspberries have asserted themselves here. Instead of just a tart raspberry fruitiness, it comes off more like a funky lambic type of raspberry. The potent pepper and clove combine with the raspberry to really tickle the senses. These big three are the focus of the brew. Underneath you will find a light grassiness and a sugary maltiness. Quite nice this one is.

3.75 T: Tastes like it smells, but it just doesn't match how well it worked in the nose. Fruity, funky raspberry. Lots of pepper and clove. Grassy, sugary maltiness.

3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Just a light spritziness from the carbonation.

3.75 D: I like the Brainless series. The base beer is always good and the fruity spins seem to work quite well.

Thanks to jtd1969 for sharing this bottle with me

A - pinkish amber with a thin, white head that has good retention

S - faint malt and tart raspberries

T - same as the nose; the raspberries are well balanced

M - medium bodied, well carbonated

I would have liked this one to be a bit more full-flavored. It was a nice touch with the raspberries but it was a bit light. Overall, a nice fruit beer.

22 oz bottle poured into an Epic tulip.
9.2% ABV, Release #9

A - Ruby-hued amber in color, Brainless Raspberries has some nice clarity and a ring of tight foam that's left hanging out below a halo of dotted lace.

S - Brainless Raspberries smells like a bushel of ripe, crushed raspberries with Champagne-like white grapes and a delicate Belgian spice and citrus one-two combo of lemongrass and sweet orange peel!

T - Raspberries explode onto the tongue with fresh fruit flavor only to be swept away by Belgian yeast in the form of a saison with a conglomerate of spice and trailing citrus nuances.

M - A perfectly matched level of effervescence dances on the tongue, livening up the fairly light bodied beer with a complimentary dry finish. Despite the fruit, citrus, and spice notes all coming together wonderfully, the beer still finishes clean and devoid of any alcohol presence.

O - Epic's Brainless Raspberries is one of the best raspberry beers out there, marrying a high octane-yet-delicate Belgian saison-type of beer with fresh fruitiness and sparkling effervescent for a superb beer sure to leave a lasting impression!
