Raspberry Porter Tree Brewing

I have had several pints from Tree brewing before. This smaller brewery based in Kelowna, BC, usually produces good beers.

Raspberry Porter (Tree Brewing)

Rate beer -not listed-
Beer Advocate B+

Taste +2

This is a porter all right, it pours as dark as my parole officers heart. The nose is all raspberry jam. At first tasting shows a raspberry sweetness, more like an alcoholic extract than fresh juice. There is a good full mouth flavour on a backbone of very uneventful porter. Thankfully the raspberry is not too sweet.

Aftertaste 0

The raspberry and malt sweetness cleanly fade away; pretty quick too.

Alcohol Content 0 5%

Value 0

Standard BC craft beer price $5 for 650ml.

Ingame Enhancement 0

New years spend packing to go into Vancouver. I did listen to Elbow though; great band. If it sounds familiar it was in the L4D TV spot.

Overall 2/10

This beer might be fun to serve with a dark berry or chocolate desert. Other than that I can't really see a reason to drink it. If you really liked raspberries, this beer is for you.
