COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Frambozen begins with the aroma of fresh red raspberries, followed by the ripe seductiveness of a fruity brown ale with depth and delicate malt notes. It is deep ruby in color, with flavors just as rich. Every year, New Belgium sends a delegate to the Pacific Northwest to oversee the process of turning freshly picked berries into a pure juice to be added in fermentation. The coming of Thanksgiving at New Belgium is ushered in with the first sighting of our cellar operators scuttling about, covered head to tow in a festive crimson berry wash.

TH28 (344) - - DEC 29, 2013
Appearance is a clear, deep ruby red, with a small white foam cap. Aroma is some toasted, nutty malt, with a distinct berry. Taste starts with a slightly toasted malt and quickly gives way to an intense raspberry, cherry, and slight raisin character. Mouthfeel is light to medium with low carbonation. Very dry. Finishes on the maltier side, with some lingering tartness from the raspberry

Bottle to snifter. An immediate gawd awful aroma of rotten fruit and mustiness that makes me feel sick. a dark red pour with a medium sized light brown head. Taste is all papery thin and sugary sweetness like a lollipop. This is horrible.

anderson01 (317) - Idaho, USA - APR 4, 2015
Has a awesome amber red in color with a thin white head. Lacing is okay. Aroma consist of raspberries and toasted nuts. Definite raspberries in the taste. Slick feel on the palate that finishes abruptly. Low carbonation. Gives me a clean feeling in my mouth like mouthwash. Easy drinking beer. Recieved from brenn79. Overall enjoyable.

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 26, 2015
On tap at beer rev. Clear amber/dark copper with a minimal cap. Served way to cold...... I shall wait. Aroma is clean and tart, raspberry, any very mild toasty malts. Taste is crisp and fresh, tart raspberry thatís not overly strong, not to sweet, perfect malt balance. This is a fruit beer that is still a beer....... donít feel girly drinking this. Carbonation is heavy feels like pop....... The bubbles tickle my lips. I could drink the shit out of this on a hot day. One of the best fruit beers Iíve ever had........ top three for sure.
