A thanks to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a pink/light violet color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of sour raspberries. Smell is tart, but also sweet, raspberry, a touch of alcohol, but not much. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer, but not really my thing.

nitro tap

Pours a mostly clear deep pinkish red. Creamy head is pinkish white and firm, retaining indefinitely.

Aroma is of fresh raspberries, citrus, and buttered biscuit malts.

Flavor is sweet raspberry and blueberry with some citrus and bretty tartness. Buttered biscuit malt undertone.

Medium creamy body with tingly carbonation that hits the roof of the mouth.

Very tasty Belgian-inspired fruit beer with some great fresh fruit flavor. More sweet and malty than tart. Great fruit beer and worth trying. Works well as a nitro pour.

A 22 fl. oz. bottle, Release #33, brewed on 3rd November 2014 and packaged on 19th November 2014. Poured into a d’Achouffe tulip glass.

Appearance: It poured a cloudy pinkish red orange colour (like pink guava juice) with a one finger white head that dissipated quickly and left only sparse lacing.

Aroma: Fruity raspberry juice and strawberry jam.

Taste: Sweet and lightly tart raspberry and strawberry jam flavours with a good amount of alcohol bite that’s not overpowering.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: It’s a good beer that has a nice alcohol bite and while its not overpowering, I do prefer fruit beers to be a bit lighter though and hence Epic Lil’ Brainless Raspberries was slightly better in my opinion.

Hazy and pale gray-hued raspberry color with a thin, half finger of blueberry-tinted white head that's quick to dissipate. Tart, fresh raspberries dominate the aroma. They're slightly lighter and sweeter in the taste, which has some Belgian yeast characteristics mid palate and then more raspberry juice in the aftertaste. A little alcohol in the aftertaste. Light to medium bodied and light on the carbonation. I guess I got what was advertised on this one. It tastes like a lightly carbonated raspberry soda or wine cooler. It's not bad, just boring.

The beer is a bright copper color with a thin white head that began to disappear quickly. Not much in the way of carbonation. This is a fruit beer where I was not overwhelmed by fruit flavor. I actually get a nice fruity tartness smell mixed with a sweet bread aroma and a little alcohol. A very nice mild taste. A sweetness up front with a mix of fruit and malts and it ends with a tartness. Very easy to drink
