Poured into a snifter.
A: Clear red with two-finger, creamy, foamy, white head that lasted several minutes and left a nice film. Great lacing.
S: Big whiff of black rasberry. Subtle notes of alcohol.
T: Light to moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Tart berries and a hint of orange. Has a cider like quality to it. Really good.
M: Light to medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Crisp and slightly astringent.
O: I am usually not a huge fan of fruit ales, but this was pretty good. Even better if you like berries. The flavors were not at all overpowering. Nice to sip.
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
