2.94/5  rDev -19.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

L- Very deep red-chestnut. Pours clear with 5mm fine white head, slowly receding.
S- Distinct/clear raspberry, and I find it hard to divine anything beyond that.
T- Very fruity, to the point of being like an intensely fruity alco-pop. This is like another kriek I had recently is so fruity it's hard to register a beer flavour.
F- Considering how fruity it is it's not OTT sweet/rich; rather, it's pretty well balanced. In fact coupled with very good CO2 in the mouth I'm realising that it's quite refreshing. That said I still reckon that this intensity of fruit in a beer would work better in summer i/o winter.
O- Interesting to try, though as above probably not the season for it to work well. There is too much fruit going on here, vs beer character, for me to wish to buy this again.

A- Love the paper labeling on this one with the pic of the guy from the 50's! Upon unwrapping, this pours a brown-ish color with chocolate cola/raspberry hues...awesome! There isn't much of a head, but it does start out cherry cola color and is thin and bubbly...it doesn't retain well. Lacing is quite nice with plenty of small patches of foam clinging to the side of the glass.

S- Plenty of deep raspberry, candied syrup and a medley of tart concentrated fruit juice. There is a Belgian sourness about this but it is balanced well by jammy sweetness and a fullness that is of yeast/bread.

T- Raspberry creme truffle, hints of jammy caramel malt sweetness, some balancing tartness...not much else to say here but it's very very good....dessert like in fact!

M/O- Surprisingly this is medium-full in body and quite smooth upon the palate. The carbonation is plentiful yet smooth and allows the tart/sweet characteristics to bloom and provide lots of flavors! A real treat and I recommend this one! Another winner!

Pours a dark purple/crimson, little to no head, leaves barely any lacing along the side of the glass. Smell is that of deep, dark berry tartness and wavering sweetness, that reminds one of a the faint memory of jam or a freshly baked pie sitting to cool on the table top.

Taste is very thorough in that the raspberry sourness is there in force, but not overpowering and actually, quiet pleasant. There is a slight follow up of the quintessential beer taste, some very distant malt and hops, but the raspberry dominates this brew as it was meant to. A delicious fruit beer that will turn even the most doubtful taster into a fan. To be enjoyed as much as possible and undoubtedly a beer to keep stocked for the winter season.
