Large three finger head, pink tinged white, quite loose and evaporates rapidly, you can hear the bubbles sizzle, any lacing is a sheet which glides back into the glass after any swirling. Muscularly active and large bubbles visible everywhere in the glass, rose colored pink to orange, clear on the whole but not that shiny. There is a metallic, earthy quality to the nose which sometimes evokes tar or sun drenched apartment building rooftops, not funky but not something you encounter often, makes it hard for the cherry and raspberry to compete although they are fresh and juicy, honey mixed with sage and marjoram, just seems to be lacking in direction. Medium-bodied, softer mouth feel, the carbonation is steady, not fluffy nor prickly. The raspberry pie flavors segue to more strawberry and green apple than cherry, in any event they all have that Jolly Rancher sort of concentrated sugariness and less natural flow. Beet sugar, orange blossom, rose water and honey. But again that burnt rubber tire to tar aspect won’t shake loose. Bready towards the finish, pie crust. Needs harmony and to focus more on expression of the fruit.

This little brew flirts heavily with Blushing Monk... yeah, it's almost *that* good.

Pours a nice ruby color with a frothy head that lingers, belgian yeast and berries in the nose and raspberries & cherries in the taste. As soon as the snow clears I'm heading back to the joint I bought my one bottle at - it's a damn good beer. Pick one up if you get a chance.

WAY TO GO, PISGAH!!!!!

Also - how can a beer celebrating their 10th Anniversary be "rotating?"

Bottled on 12/23/14.Pours into a chalice a deep burnt orange with a hint of red,a thinner pinkish colored head atop,quite alot of carbonation to it.Mild stone fruit and faint lactic sourness detected in the nose.Quite dry on the palate wich is nice,some of the lactic raspberry and light sourness from the cherries are there but not real huge,some mineral/fruit pit flavors underneath as well.It doesn't seem as big as it is,it has a sptritzy feel and i like the fact it's not overly sour or sweet,a nice beer.
