Slight gusher when opened. A somewhat hazy garnet-hued liquid with an off-white head that settled as a thick ringlet, leaving some lacing on the glass. Earthy raspberry aroma, somewhat jammy, with hints of barrel. More of the same in the taste, raspberry puree, earth, oak, light caramel malts; flavor profile was a bit weak honestly, and there wasn't much sourness/tartness to be had. The mouthfeel seemed rather watery to me, more so as it warmed a bit, but it was still easily drinkable, body was light, though a bit sticky in the finish. I wasn't wowed by this one at all.

We did cuvee it with a Bruery Sans Pagaie, with interesting results, and I even threw a bit of Rubaeus into the mix, and I thought that blend really brought out the best in each beer, none of which I really cared for much in and of themselves.

Poured from the bottle into a tasting snifter.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy reddish dark brown to amber color with a layer of off white head. The head fades to a ring around the pour.

Smell: Sweet raspberry jam. Mildly tart with some spice and a malt sweetness undertone.

Taste: Sweet raspberry notes up front with a nice level of tartness. I'm getting mild vinegar sourness that compliments the fruit nicely. The finish is quite good with a pleasant sourness.

Mouthfeel: The body is medium with tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: I enjoyed this one a bit more than the cherry version. Very smooth with a nice fruit flavor. I'd have more.
