A birthday gift from brewdude1982. A 32oz growler from his trip to Asheville.

A - black with a large, dense, soft, foamy brown head that has great retention

S - chocolate covered cherries, cough syrup, red wine

T - subtle tartness, faint chocolate, raspberries, faint yeast, warming alcohol in the finish

M - light to medium bodied, a bit warm in the finish, well carbonated

This is an interesting beer. I was impressed with the aroma. It really does smell like chocolate covered cherries, but borders on medicine. The taste is a bit odd to me. I get the cherries. I get the chocolate though it's faint. It's a nice flavor, but it's not full-flavored. The mouthfeel is also a bit surprising. This is soft and light; very easy to drink. Overall, this is a unique beer that is definitely worth a try. I would have preferred it to have been more full-flavored, but I certainly wouldn't ever pass this up.

Appearance: Arrives at the bar with a surprisingly dark color, almost fudge brown, with a buoyant tan head; plenty of lacing hangs around for the devotee

Smell: Clearly the beer's best attribute, it smells like a basket full of freshly picked raspberries dusted with chocolate shavings

Taste: Well, I guess it can be said that the taste is very much like the aroma, with plenty of raspberry fruit flavor; the chocolate is hard to find, though, and there is a brown bread character that underpins the fruit

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: When I heard this was a Saison, I was expecting something very different as this is more a fruit beer than anything else; it lakes the yeasty complexity I was expecting, though the fruit profile is quite enjoyable
