  • Style: (raspberry, lemon zest, wheat) Fruit Ale
  • Taste: Full-0n cream/fizzy pink lemonade sour wheat malt tangy light funk rough
  • Where I got it : Liquor Barn / N.Burnaby
  • How much: $6.30 CAD (after 10% off) – 650ml., October 2015
  • Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
  • Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: unique flavour, might be worthwhile

Visual: Pours cloudy luminescent orange with a huge ultra-long lasting pillowy creamy head, super clusters of fast activity, beware of the GUSHER from the bottle, kept on foaming out after a glass pour for over 5 minutes. Ridiculous.

Nose: raspberry cotton candy (pink lemonade) mixed with light funky wheat malt. (lvl-6)-pungency

Attack: crisp-full cream-foamy

Mid-palate: immediate raspberry juice & cotton candy (pink lemonade) fruitiness, , fizzy-tingly, (lvl-3)-sweetness, dissipating light-med sour funk, tangy dry wheat malt

Finish: a bit salty, residual wheat malty roughness in the finish.

Summary: Wow, never though I’d taste pink lemonade in a beer, very delightfully delicious. A bit of roughness in the finish but a good variety of textures and good flavour make this a winner. Quite an interesting one.
