4.6/5 rDev +25.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
first thing: i cannot believe that this is an 18% beer. way, way too well balanced. however, i'll go along with the listed ABV, for now anyway.
visual: hazy strawberry blonde. moderate head and carbonation.
aroma: raspberries. simple, but good.
foretaste: raspberry extract-like. interesting. i like it.
mouthfeel: medium to heavy.
midpalate: raspberry and hop; alcohol (assuming it is really 18% ABV) extremely well hidden. perhaps a huge hopping rate to make this so drinkable?
aftertaste: pretty much raspberry extract. dry.
you'd expect such an extreme beer to be way malty, way sweet. this isn't. kudos to DFH.
buzz is hitting me now, shortly after downing this one rather quickly. it may actually be 18% ABV as listed. but as i wrote, very, very well balanced, regardless of actual ABV. a winner!
