Intro: 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.
