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!

a pink-ish/amber, clean pour with a finger of head.. lots of visible carbonation. smells of raspberries, a sweetness reminiscent of jam.. a saison-like funky yeast.. this smells fabulous! a nice tartness up front from the raspberries, but then shoots into a bready mellowness, leading into a slightly spicy belgian yeast. a very weird combination of flavors that balance each other out perfectly. medium body, high carbonation, very refreshing for the high abv (which is also well masked!).

a wonderful beer as far as both belgian ales and fruit beers go. pick this up if you have a chance!

On tap at The Public House in La Jolla. Beautiful red amber color in the tulip. Not a lot of foam; in fact, it's less carbonated than most beers. This has a tingly mouthfeel, however, as well as a fruity sharpness and heat from the alcohol.

Lovely, lingering scent of berries. A touch of butter. Sweet, but fruity and not sugary. The malt is warm and rich with a little toasted bread. The berries are the main flavor, and this is probably the most raspberry taste I've encountered in a beer. A great take on the Belgian golden fruit-flavored style.

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.
