Poured from bottle into a chalice glass

Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed reddish-orange color with a tiny fizzy white head with tons of tiny carbonation bubbles streaming through the body of the beer. The head fades very fast leaving only the tracest level of lace on the sides of the glass and some wisps of foam on the surface of the beer.

Smell – The aroma is huge and fruity with tons of sweet raspberry and cherry smell. It almost has a cherry-berry flavored kool-aid like sweetness; sort of a candy like sugary smell. Mixed with these smells are some light tropical fruit and orange and a tiny bit of spice.

Taste – The taste begins with a citrus, yeast, and biscuit taste mixed with a rather big cherry and raspberry sweetness. As the flavors advance the raspberry and cherry grow stronger in flavor and is joined by some candied sugar which combined to produce a rather sweet brew more toward the middle of the taste. Some spice of clove and coriander later come to the tongue with some lighter grassy flavors joining as well. In the end, with even more raspberry and cherry coming to the tongue and a little bit of booze as well, one is left with a fruity raspberry triple taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the rather average to slightly creamier side with a carbonation level, as would have been expected from the appearance, consisting of prickly little carbonation bubbles. The combo is rather nice for the fruity flavors of the beer and quite appropriate for the trippel style.

Overall – A nice sweet and fruity trippel. At 9.5 % abv it is rather easy drinking and quite pleasant.

Bottle from Food and Friends
Pours a hazy medium gold color with a decent sized off white head that persists for a while. While there was no huge pop when I opened it, it did try to self pour out of the bottle. The aroma is lightly non descript fruit with a solid caramel malty back with lots of clove and other spices. I had to edit this a little, because as this warms the raspberries and cherries really come out in the nose. The flavor is caramel prune and yeasty spice for the most part. The fruit flavor of raspberry and cherry are subtle but the tartness shines through pretty well. A hint of alcohol and a prominent orange marmalade thing round out the flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Decent beer, but overall I feel that flavors are competing here rather than complimenting each other.

First brew from these guys and it was pretty good. This brew aged over cherries and various other fruits has a nice appealing aroma. The carbonation was good and the taste was good. I would have liked just a tab more fruit flavor but all in all I enjoyed it. I would buy this again as it went down easy and was $7.99 for the bottle.

Bottom Line: good brew!

Poured from a bottle into a wine glass.
A: A rose/red color that has visible bubbles and lots of leftover fruit sediment.
S: Fruity, like a fruit beer with a lot of sweetness that comes in the nose.
T: Sweet, with a passion fruit and watermelon flavor.
M: Sugar on the back of the tongue molds into a sweet fruit flavor and becomes Robitussin like.
O: Tastes like a fruit beer, certainly not amazing but not atrocious either. very average.

650ml bottle served in a goblet

Appearance: Pours an orange/amber color with 1 finger of a soapy off white head. Body is hazy with medium visible carbonation.

Smell: Raspberries, sweet cherry, clove, red apple, and spice. The fruit notes are much more to the forefront with the base beer characteristics playing more of a supporting role.

Taste: Lightly sweet upfront with flavors of cherries, candi sugar, apple, clove, and raspberry. Finishes dry with a slight tartness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Carbonation is high. Strong alcohol warming sensation after it goes down.

Overall: Pretty good, though the fruits and base beer didn't compliment each other as well as I was hoping for. Also for "only 9.5%" it was a bit hot and boozy. It's not a bad brew, though I probably wouldn't get it again.
