750mL thanks to my secret Santa (I think). Whoa holy s*** this is good. I am not a giant fan of the Belgian Red but I know it is hard for NG to come out with a beer that is not stellar. What an outstanding fruit beer that is neither 10%+ nor a lambic.
Pours a clear deep purple to ruby with a towering, thick, creamy, slightly pink head that has excellent retention and good lace. Aroma is incredible: fresh raspberries, pithy raspberry, seedy raspberry preserves, really so rich and bright with fresh fruitiness. No candy sugar, no sticky sweetness. Taste is so brilliant: it is malty, creamy, not buttery, with so much fresh raspberry that brings out a naturally tartness that is not framboise sour. No pedio, lacto, acedic acid. No lambic character. But somehow is perfectly balanced between sour berries and sweet malt. Lively, bubbly tart on the palate that finishes super quick making you beg for more. It is not massively complex, but it is a beer that I will crave from now on every day. Destroys all fruit beer. 8/10/2010 8/5/8/5/15=4.1
750mL. Pour is perfect- a clear jewel black ruby with a massive pinkish beige head. Huge retention and wispy, gorgeous delicate lace abounds across the raster tulip. Nose is seedy raspberry smoothie. Taste....wow. So much lactic sourness, seedy raspberry, sweet raspberry smoothie. Palate is ultra silky with a long lactic finish. Mild spice and sharp sting. Perfect blend of sweet and sour. Incredible raspberry character. Impossible for any organic lifeform to not thoroughly enjoy this. Whoa. 11/9/2011 8/5/9/5/17=4.4

This beer is delicious. The fruit is impeccable. It was very refreshing as well. My only criticism is it's overly sweet after a few sips. If this beer had a bit more alcohol I feel it would be more balanced. I enjoyed it a bit better after mixing in a bit of a different ale to cut down the sweetness.
