look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
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.

Bottle says Release 11 & 10% ABV
A: poured into a tulip to a reddish gold with a small off white head that fades quickly but leaves nice lacing
S: smells of fruity esters, spicy yeast and raspberries
T: taste is raspberries, spices, yeastyness, fruity esters, and more raspberry. swallow is raspberry, and some light maltyness with some more fruity esters and a hint of alcohol
M: this beer is a slittle slick and sits a little heavy on the palate and carbonation is slightly prickly. the finish on this beer is ever so slightly drying
O It's a great beer and the fruit addition is a nice touch. it has great flavors and decent balance without being over the top and it isn't too heavy for the summer heat.
