A - a swampy brown, short white head didn't last long, left some random spots
S - very sweet butterscotch and fruity aroma with some booziness
T - a ton of sweetness with butterscotch, dark fruits, berries, more like a sugary fruit drink than a beer
M - on the flat side with rot your teeth sweetness and some alcohol heat
O - its more like a cocktail or a cooler than a beer, way to sweet and fruity, not worth trying

For a brewery whose beers are so expensive, I'm surprised at how poorly (or average) they tend to get rated...

A - Pours a hazy murky brown colour, finger of head with little retention and some sporadic lacing.

S - Dark fruits and roasted malts, raspberries, apples and cherries. Definitely very fruity.

T - Wow, incredibly sweet, leaning on the edge of too sweet. Raspberries and honey with raisins on the finish. It as if I'm drinking honey, it's that sweet. ABV is well hidden, but that's likely due to the fact that all I can taste is sugar.

M - Medium bodied and surprisingly smooth, but the finish is super sticky.

O - Overall, I'm glad I didn't splurge on this one myself. A great gift, but a little disappointing and a little too sweet for my liking.

375ml green corked and caged bottle poured into chalice jan13 2010

A hazy peachy orange with no head or lace

S sweet malty cereal with some yeast, herbal notes, and some raspberry and honey

T a little sweeter then I would like and the booze comes out a little more then on the nose

M thick and syrupy and slick, just a little sticky and the flavors linger

D nothing sticks out as great or lousy, I like the feel but other then that I could take it or leave it

I've seen lots of the Raasted brews collecting dust on the shelves here in Alberta, not bad beers but for what they cost I don't imagine that many people are buying them more then once.

This beer pours a hazy, rusty, brown colour, with swirling chunks of sediment, and one finger of creamy off-white head, which leaves some nice broken wallpapered lace around the glass as it settles. It smells of sweet, pastry-like malt, raspberry wine, and raspberry jam. The taste is a big how-do-ya-do, with a strong, dense caramel maltiness, raspberry liqueur, and subtle earthy, leafy hops. The carbonation is quite soft, the body a bruiser - heavy, thick, cloying fruitiness, smooth in its own way, I suppose. It finishes sweet, in the boozy, fruity vein, with the fruit tartness and now lame hops putting up very little in opposition.

Jesus tap-dancing Christ, I did not expect this! Almost like a malt-liquor, raspberry edition. This, of course, means that the sweet malt and raspberry go a long way to attenuating the strong booze edge, which in the end, is a good, good thing. Whew.

From a 375 ml green bottle, caged and corked with black foil around the cap and neck. Supposed to be a raspberry tripel.

Pours out a deep hazed yet translucent garnet, thin creamy off-white head.

Vinuous alcohol and sharp fruit are apparent first on the nose, some sugar sweetness, some faint bready malt.

The alcohol is not hidden in the flavour either, but prominant, reminiscent of a fruit brandy. The fruit is jam-like, sweet but with some dry tartness (once again from the alcohol), with alcohol warmth and some spicy notes on the finish. A little bit of hops pokes through on the finish. Some cloying sticky sweetness and spicy alcohol lingers in the aftertaste.

Medium-light mouthfeel, light carbonation, slick and watery, the alcohol warmth is what boosts the illusion of a fuller feel.

Well, it's more palatable that Forte from Dogfish Head, but not one to return for more. It's my impression that high alcohol raspberry beers are a bit of a bugbear that will turn on you and not offer a satisfying outcome. I love raspberries, but not in this context. Or perhaps the amount of raspberries used in the batch needs to be reduced, not so much overkill.
