22oz bottle into a tulip. no freshness dating that i could find.

dull dk amber body, slightly cloudy. very good carbonation up the side of the glass. massive white foamy/creamy head leaving thick lacing.

aroma is a mix of champagne, slightly tart fruit, spoiled by a slightly unpleasant chemical smell.

taste follows the nose. the raspberry/champagne flavors are quite mild, and the chemical taste is also more muted than the aroma would suggest.

mouth is pretty close to full, finish is slightly dry and tart, but does leave a faintly unpleasant taste on the tongue.

overall, it doesn't taste like a standard saison. as a drink on it's own merits, the faintly chemical taste throughout is a bit of a spoiler. no idea how old this one is, a bottled date would be helpful Fegleys.

Pours a very slightly red tinted amber, with almost no head or lacing. Fragrance is subdued. A hint of fruit and little else. Pleasant enough.

The taste, though, is pretty good! It is slightly tart, not quite sour. Blindfolded, I don't know that I would guess raspberry, but the fruit taste is definitely there. It's well carbonated, which helps the overall experience of drinking this brew.

I can kind of see this beer as a decent introduction to the world of sour ales for those who are afraid of trying sour ales, even though it is not categorized as one.

2.92/5: Fails as a saison, but it works well as a general raspberry beer that's not disgustingly sugary

Nice darker red/orange look with a nice white head from tap. Scent has some sweet raspberry and mostly Saison funk. The flavor is somewhat sweet and raspberry but I didn't know what was in it and I thought grape at first. It's soft for a 7% and a bit thin with decent carbonation.

Pours a reddish copper color with very little head. The nose has raspberries and a touch of funk. The flavor is mildly sour with a hint of fruitiness.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.

T---Strong raspberry flavor. Some hops are there as well.

F---Nice. Well carbonated and almost fizzy, like a fruit beer should be.

O---An excellent fruit beer. Perfect for a warm day.

Love this beer ! The pour is a nice reddish color . The smell is no doubt raspberry and some citrus.
The taste is tart with a wheat and another type of citrus flavor ! This is not big sweet , but just enough to be very refreshing. In fact , I am not sure this shouldn't be classified as a fruit beer, but I could be wrong
Fruit beer or Saison, its a treat ! I am becoming a big fan of this brewery. That have been putting out some very solid products .

Pours reddish golden color. There is a big sweet raspberry aroma hints of yeast. Flavors have big sweet raspberry flavors, some notes of Belgian candy. Nice body, but a little too sweet.

Appearance - Pours a gorgeous Strawberry Amber that looks fantastic in the sunlight. It has a very foamy 4-5 inch head from gentle-moderate pour. It takes a while for this to dissipate.

Scent - Raspberry, citrus, hops and some sort of malty scent that is hard to describe.

Taste - Somewhat similar to Bearded Lady by 3 Beards Beer Company. It's more tart and the wheat distinguishes it from the rye that Bearded Lady had. The yeast is not as notable as I was hoping for for this. It's not overly sweet but it still has a bit of a punch to the taste buds.

Mouthfeel - Pretty high carbonation that leaves the tongue tingling. There is also a bit of smoothness of from the wheat malts. Not as multilayered as some beers but not unpleasant.

Overall - Not sure how I feel. It's not bad but I don't know if I would get it again. Still, if you like Raspberry, this may be your kind of beer.

A tasty brew, that hides its 7% well...I'm not a huge fan of fruit beers, but this one I like. Strong flavor of REAL raspberries over a solid base beer makes for a extremely quaffable brew. I would definitely buy this one again, well done Allentown Brew Works!
