Vigorous pour yields nary a bubble much less a head. Nice, light to medium, pink colored body. Nose of raspberries like you read about. Wonderful flavors of raspberries, cherries, and other dark fruit. Being of flat appearance the slight carbonation was an unexpected, but welcome, surprise. Overall the smell and taste more than make up for any shortcomings in look and feel. Cheers!

750ml bottle, from 7/22/2016. Served in a stemmed glass. Pours a beautiful deep reddish pink body, one finger offwhite head, lots of retention and lacing. Smells of rich raspberry puree, touch of lemon, a little bit of grainy sweetness, touch of bread. Flavour is a bit boring; it's mostly raspberries here with a bit of the saison base peeking out, but it is not particularly complex. The raspberries are a bit watered down compared to Atrial Rubicite, but this is certainly tasty; problem is that the base saison doesn't contribute much. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied, good carbonation, drinkable and follows through with a fair bit of raspberry and minerality on the finish.
