Color- dark ruby. Full pink head.

Aroma- crisp raspberries.

Taste- Starts tart with some sourness then quickly progresses to a sweeter body with an Asti Spumante like finish. An excellent summertime fruit beer. The sour beginning might not sit well with the average rouge but we like this one.

Poured from 355 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted 8/31/2013.
