Enjoyed from the 22 oz bottle in a snifter. This unique Belgian style ale pours a cloudy brownish red with a fizzy quickly dissipating pink head of foam that leaves a thin pool and decent lacing. Nose of light raspberries, light caramel malts, strong booze, and a hint of clove and perhaps mace. Flavors are tart sweet raspberries and sweet malts colliding in a symposium of a lightly tart ale with a dash of clove on the background. Alcohol warmth comes through on the back with gusto, while the smooth highly carbonated mouth feel makes this a lively and easy sipper. Very interesting., not sure it would be a go to brew, but it is still decent for what it is.

I was intrigued by this beer since it was something i would imagine is similar to the New Glarus "fruit" beers. If they are like this beer I don't think I am ready for that style.

Appearance: Fairly ruby red with some brownish notes, virtually no head.

Aroma: First thing I noticed was an overly boozy nose and not much in the fruit category. I felt like this beer was too estery, and more like a generic Belgian ale with fruit juice added to it.

Taste: Like mixing a little bit of the cran-raspberry juice from the supermarket juice aisle with a mediocre Belgian style ale.

Overall: Very much let down with this beer considering the price. It was too boozy and not very complex. I shared it with a friend and they pretty much agreed with this assumption.
