Epic "Brainless Raspberries"
Epic Brewing Company - Salt Lake City, Utah USA
Belgian Style Ale (ABV 9.7%)

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

Rating: 3.75/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a hazy pinkish ruby red with a slight orange hue and a small (less that 1 finger) white sudsy head that diminished very quickly, down to a thin puddled film with a medium collar and possessed fair streaky lacing.

The aroma was of a mild biscuit malt and a strong funky Belgian yeast with hints of overripe raspberries, bubblegum, candi sugar and a mild sourness.

The taste was a tad sweet and decently malty with a note of raspberries from the get go, although it was far from being overpowering. As it progressed it became lightly tart and somewhat yeasty and had a mild alcohol tinge towards the finish. The flavor stuck around for an average time following the swallow, with a lightly tart fruity taste and a mild alcohol warming sensation that lingered for a short while.

Mouthfeel was just barely past light in body with a mildly dry texture and a ticklish carbonation.

Overall this was a lightly malty sweet and refreshing fruity Belgian Ale that was balanced very well by the moderate presence of the Belgian yeast, which helped immensely in hiding the high ABV and creating a smooth and easy drinking experience...
