COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This hand-numbered bottle of Sangre de Frambuesa is a tribute to the Santa Fe Brewing Company's 20 year legacy of brewing traditional yet unique beers, which are as enchanting as the southwestern state in which they are brewed. By uniting the highest quality ingredients from Canada, Oregon, Germany, Belgium, and New Mexico, this unique beer marries world-class complexity with playful levity. Enjoy this beer much as you would a bottle of good champagne: in the company of friends and in the spirit of joy. Chill it well, as its exuberant effervescence may surprise you when it is opened. As this beer dances across your tongue, you will enjoy an interplay of bright tart, sweet, spicy, and fruity flavors that bubble out of a crisp, dry body, linger for a moment, and eventually fade into a warm afterglow. The Sangre de Frambuesa is as close as anyone in the world has ever come to bottling a Santa Fe sunset.

Nate (3759) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2013
From bottle, courtesy of my buddy Mike R. Very mild sweet raspberry juice, musky with light alcohol. This is aged, but has held up well. Coppery amber hazy with off-white lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation and alcoholic warming. Big raspberry flavor, aged but good. Alcohol. Medium sweet raspberry jam with mild funk. Mellow overall with warming. Fruity musky finish with nice raspberry after.

This one poured a reddish purple color with a white head. Aroma was of raspberries, light chocolate, and toast. Flavor was similiar, simple sweet fruit beer. Covered up the booze well though

Pour out of bottle, thanks Aaron! Dark reddish pour with thin off white head, aroma brought notes of big raspberry jam, hint of vanilla and sweet biscuit notes, some lactic notes come in as well. Taste is a bit too sweet, lots of jammy raspberry with a slight tart note, some lactic lemon notes and some sweet biscuit and vanilla, finishing fairly sweet.

Bottle @ Armin’s house. Clear, ruby orange appearance with an off white head. Super rich, tangy, fairly sour, tangy, juice box raspberry aroma. Rich, dark raspberry juice, very tangy thick, fairly sour flavor. Pretty interesting.

Tasted on 6/8/11 from a capped 750mL bottle purchased at Quarter’s. bottle number 1467 of 3156. Pours a cloudy dark blood orange color with a thick pink tinted head that slowly recedes to a spotty layer of lace. The nose is a mixture of sweet raspberry syrup along with hints of more natural, tart raspberry, but there isn’t much else going on here. The flavor is kind of that same mixture of the sweeter raspberry syrup and the more natural tart flavor, but the high alcohol is not held in check very well, and there is a bit of a weird earthy malt flavor on the back of the palate. The body is full and sticky with average carbonation and a long raspberry syrup and earthy malt finish. Right now, this beer seems to be a little out of balance. I am glad that I bought another to revisit at a later date.

Bottle 830 out of 3100 some purchased from Sunflower in ABQ. Murky reddish orangeish brown. Aroma shows some promise. It doesn’t say "this is going to be a yummy framboise", but it does say "this is going to be a pretty good lesser rendition of New Glarus Raspberry Tart". Unfortunately, it lied. The flavor is all sorts of vegetal, astrigent compost with some bad amber/brown ale malt character. Throw in some paint thinner, a bit of raspberry flavor, and the correct level of carbonation and you’ve got yourself a nice glass of Sangre de Frambuesa.
