Pretty clear golden hue with a touch of pinkness from what I can tell, its pretty dark with the power off. Craggy white head. Little flakes float throughout, close to a year of age. Smells of delicious fresh raspberries touch of wheat and grain. Dove into this forgetting that's it 18% took too big of a SIP.

This is a big sweet booze bomb though. Tart raspberries throughout. Champagne like effervescence. Massive syrup like mouthfeel, somehow though carbonation comes through. Lots of alcohol heat and overall booziness. Mouth coating for sure. This beer is just kind of a one trick pony though, tastes like raspberry liquor. Does a good job of showcasing the raspberries but that's about it. Some funky Belgian saison like properties underneath it all but they're barely there.

750ml bottle 2008 vintage. I knew this would be a tough beer but I was still completely unprepared for this shit. Sort of a light orange with a pinkish hue. Aroma is acetone and nail polish remover, disgusting. Flavor is very sweet, hint of raspberries and overwhelming alcohol. It was what I imagine industrial cleaning supplies to taste like. I think this was the worst beer I have ever tasted in my life .
