New Holland "Envious" (Cellar Series)
New Holland Brewing Company - Holland, Michigan USA
Fruit Beer (ABV 7.5%)

[Best served in a Flute glass]

Rating: 3.7/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a clear medium purplish brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) light brown fizzy head that diminished to a thin layer of residue which created some fair sticky lacing.

The aroma was extremely fruity and malty with a light bread malt and a sweet doughy yeast having notes of raspberries, pears, plums and a hint of oak.

The taste was sweet, malty and a tad acidic with a mild hint of pears early on with the end being a bit tart and sweet with notes of raspberry, and plums and having a pronounced sour finish. The flavor hung around for a good long while with the taste being mostly of a berry/plum flavor.

Mouthfeel was a definite medium in body with a subtle dry texture and a nice prickly carbonation.

Overall a fruity, tasty, refreshing brew with just the right amount of malt and tartness.
