3.71/5 rDev -2.1%
From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on June 14, 2014.
The pour is a reddish brown color with a short-lived off-white head that really simmers down and leaves almost no lacing.
In the aroma I do pick up a little raspberry but overall the scent is barley malt and barleywine boozy. The fruitiness feels less so.
Medium body mostly.
The raspberries really kick in more so in the taste than the aroma suggests. It certaInly has a boozy and malty quality to it but the raspberries introduce themselves with a passion. This will leave a mark. Spinning head.

3.76/5 rDev -0.8%
Light cognac to maple in color this poured with a deep cleanliness in body. The head was bright white and dense.
The nose is malty at first with a natural raspberry, almost vegetative. The aroma finishes toasty and biscuity.
The flavors hold a deep maltiness with toast, barley, biscuit and grain. The sweet yet sour raspberry finishes with a very natural earthy tone.
The feel is light, almost watery, and doesn't really hold barleywine properties.
This is a tremendously novel approach and kudos for the effort. For the most part it's got barleywine character with natural raspberry flavor.

3.91/5 rDev +3.2%
a. Cherry wood in appearance. Beer has 1 finger head on the pour. Thick lacking.
s. Raspberry alone on the nose.
t. Sweet on the front, malt in the middle, tart in the back. It has a fermented wine taste.
m. Good, the carbonation stays atop the beer, as the thin head remains.
o. Debated a long time between a 3.75 and a 4, but I would say this pushes the boundaries of an outstanding raspberry brandywine style ale.
