look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance-Almost purple out of the bottle with a vivid white foam.

Smell-Like raspberries in candy form. Almost medicinal.

Taste-First time I tasted it I thought it tasted like a raspberry Tootsie Pop. Something that would work for dessert. Second time I tasted it all I got was the medicine flavor and tongue coating.

Mouthfeel-Light with a finish that somewhat drops off and coats the mouth. Yikes.

Overall-Way too much medicine. The other fruit beers really benefit from the oaking to tone down the overwhelming flavors of the fruit. Hopefully next year they will do that for the Brainless Raspberries and help it out a lot. (633 characters)

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. (400 characters)

Enjoyed from the 22 oz bottle in a snifter. This unique Belgian style ale pours a cloudy brownish red with a fizzy quickly dissipating pink head of foam that leaves a thin pool and decent lacing. Nose of light raspberries, light caramel malts, strong booze, and a hint of clove and perhaps mace. Flavors are tart sweet raspberries and sweet malts colliding in a symposium of a lightly tart ale with a dash of clove on the background. Alcohol warmth comes through on the back with gusto, while the smooth highly carbonated mouth feel makes this a lively and easy sipper. Very interesting., not sure it would be a go to brew, but it is still decent for what it is. (667 characters)
