3.1/5  rDev -13.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

On draft into a 12oz tulip, first glass out of the keg.

A - pours exactly like pink champagne, a cherry 7up colored body with some strong white froth that lasts throughout the glass. Tight carbonation. Nice if you like that sort of thing, reminds me of strippers.

S - The smell is pretty good, its like raspberry candies.

T - Bartles n Jaymes on roids. Really artificial tasting raspberry floating over a yeasty beer body.

M - well hidden abv and a clean finish.

O - not for me. TK weisenberry was a similar beer I actually enjoyed, but havent seen it in years...

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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

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!

Batch #2... Paid about $8 at the COOP... Poured into my slim tulip. Pours a clear orangy/pink... the head has a pink tinge... the bubbles die back very very quickly.

Nose smells like raspberry candy with some background Belgian phenols.

Flavor is thankfully more dry and shows more clovey phenols... sorta a light peppery element... plenty of berry flavor.

Body is medium with decent carbonation... certainly does not feel or taste like nearly 10%...
