After a yearlong vacation and a new label design, this Belgian-style golden ale is finally back. It's fermented with black raspberries and blueberries, allowing the fruit to shine in both the aromas and flavors. Forward scents of berry, golden raisin, sweet orange, ripe pineapple, clove and yeasty spice lead the nose. There's noticeable warmth to the nose and finish thanks to the high alcohol, and the palate boasts a round, creamy texture that's balanced by medium carbonation and an acidic, citrusy streak. A subtle oaky accent unfolds on the finish, reminiscent of a cocoa-dusted raspberry.
