On tap at the brewpub. Reddish amber in color with a big off-white head. The bartender described it as such: "Basically the wit recipe with tons of raspberries." Works for me. Has a big candy-like raspberry aroma. Up front, there’s a big acidic tartness that segues into a strong raspberry fruit flavor without ever getting sweet! This is not a sour beer, just not as candy sweet as the aroma would suggest. Actually, there’s some biscuit to the aroma. So, this reminds me of a cobbler. This tastes very Belgian and is outstanding, as I really don’t care much for the style even.

TFOB 2007. Draft. Red tinged dark amber body with a small off white head. Big raspberry aroma is fairly sweet, with light tart leafy notes. Similar flavour is dominated by sweet raspberry that is just tart enough to keep it refreshing and not cloying. Average to medium palate. (3+) Simple, but quite nice, and pretty solid for a fruit beer. Based on previous ratings I would say that they may have tweaked the recipe. 7/3/7-8/3+/16

Growler purchased from MS has been lurking in my fridge for months! Screw-cap jug pours a nice solid, clear red hue with fine carbonation under a tall & delicate pinkish-white cap.. Big lingering aroma of raspberries and berry seeds (especially when it warms a bit.) Taste is tart raspberry & has the perfect amount of fruit sweetness, good body, palate is nice, solid wheat malt structure & fittting touches of hops - what a balancing act. The beer is a touch medicinal in the bitter raspberry aftertaste, which reminds me of the berry seeds but it’s not offensive. In fact I drank most of the growler today, and it’s VERY sessionable & a great value IMO.

Appeared clear and red, minimal white head. Smells of fresh raspberries (obviously), quite nice. Taste is a little strong, syropy (not as strong as Amsterdam Framboise). After sampling the Mill Street Raspberry I had them mix the two together in what they called "the concoction" but it tasted great, like KLB Raspberry, but better! I highly suggest it.

Growler from Toronto Brewery. I quite liked this one. Easy quaffer, would be even better in the summer. Poured a nice dark amber. Up front tart notes, but not overbearing. Backed by some malted sweetness, and the end is a nice bitter finish, almost like from an ESB.

En fût au Mill Street à Ottawa. Couleur ambrée-rougeâtre, claire, mousse blanche. Arôme de framboises et malt. En bouche, céréale et framboise, un peu d’acidité. Finale un peu d’amertume, framboise et malt. Très bonne beer à la framboise.

On tap at the brewpub - came a clear amber red with a decent white head that soon vanished and left no lace. Aroma fairly fruity, as you would expect, but with some yeasty ale notes as well. Flavour is hugely tart - like pure raspberry juice, and thankfully it doesn’t seem like it’s from concentrate. Not much in the way of "beer" flavours, although the finish has a mild bitterness. I’m not a huge fan of fruit beers, but when they’re done right, they can be quite enjoyable. I must admit this one is pretty solid and reminds me very much of the Amsterdam Framboise, another excellent local fruit brew.

[541-20070818] Sample @ BeerBistro (Golden Taps, Toronto, ON). Very raspberry fruit aroma. Clear, bright red body with a medium-lasting bubbly white head. Tart grainy raspberry flavour has hints of wheat. Grainy medium body has a tart finish. Super frambozened, as promised.
