On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. Body is ruby with a touch of pink. Moderate head and retention. Fluffy bubbles, soapy lacing. Aroma is raspberry, cranberry, tart apples, brett, champagne and light cherry. Taste is a lovely helping of citric tartness with some cranberry and wispy light funk. Champagne like mouthfeel, nice carbonation. Delicious and very easy to drink for experts or beginners. Genious.

I loved this beer.

Very pretty off pink color with the slightest pink tinge to the head.

Reserved nose, not too indicative of what will follow.

Lively carbonation. Great fruit taste over a reserved sour base. I get mostly raspberry, and it's very pleasant. Slightly reminescent of another favorite, the Duchesse de Bourgogne.

Great effort by one of my favorite breweries. Hope to see it again soon

I just love this one. A lovely lightly cloudy pink with a pink rose colored head that leaves a touch of lacy streaks and spots here and there. Carbonation is evident and quite pretty. Smell has a goodly
amount of fruit as the berries sit on a yeasty bread malt backbone. Taste is an superb. A perfect balance of raspberry flavor and dry wine like palate. Whole grain malt and bread. Not quite a sour and that's a good thing. So close to a five in taste I may have to come back and up the score. No trace of alcohol anywhere. This is the beer equivalent to a white zinfandel as the fruity persona is so artfully balanced that it appeals to dryer preferences. Crisp to drink and perfect weight. A touch of creaminess as well. Top notch drinkability as I could go through several bottles of this without batting an eye. Add some cheese and crackers and it becomes an all night brew. The sunrise will only look better with a plate of brie, bread, and Aphrodite. Would also go well with a brie omelette and whole grain bread. A truly great beer.
