Appearance-Raspberry red to brown ale brown but not quite an amber with a white foam that has a maroon tint.
Smell-The blackberry and blueberry fruit is definitely dominant.
Taste-The fruit is much more subtle than something like a framboise that will leave a medicine after taste and a coated tongue.
Mouthfeel-Medium to full body of a lighter ale with good length on the finish.
Overall-Not bad. Definitely need the subtlety that this beer provides to be able to drink the fruit stuff. The Dogfish people don't typically let me down though.
Serving type: bottle

Served in a snifter at Beelow's.
Gotta love it when your local bars get some cool kegs. This case in point pours a partly hazy sunset rusted gold topped by a finger of glowing bone foam. The nose comprises blackberries, light blueberries, very light banana, mild biscuit, light sourdough, and a pinch of allspice. The taste brings in more of the same, the berries matched by some Belgian yeast-infused bread and a hint of orange peel and light grass. The body is a stolid medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly syrupy feel. Overall, a pretty nice beer, one that I could see going well with plenty of foods (muffins and lamb dishes spring to mind).
Serving type: on-tap
