Voodoo Love Child
My girlfriend raved about the Voodoo Love Child that she had at a beer fest, and so she insisted on buying a bottle for me to try. The beer pours a golden color with light orange hues and a very lofty and foamy white head. The aroma consists a wheat base with cherry, raspberry, and a hint of sweet passion fruit. The taste is dry, light and bubbly with wheat on the bottom of a good sour cherry and raspberry kick. Some Belgian spices and yeast come up next with breadiness on the back of the mouth. On the finish, some passion fruit dries out the mouth a bit and leaves a passion fruit after taste. The alcohol content is 9.5% ABV. The Love Child was an excellent Belgian beer with good sour fruit accents that dry the mouth out nicely without being too dry.
