Blood red color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of raspberries, red wine, vanilla, and wood. Taste of raspberry skins, fruits, some pit, and a semi sweet finish.

Thanks to Brandon Chaney for hooking me up with a growler of this. A: The beer looks pretty, and unsurprisingly appears the exact color of raspberries. There is a pinkish head of an eighth inch. This recedes hastily, leaving virtually no lacing behind. The carbonation level appears to be fairly low. S: The aroma is all about raspberries. T: The flavor is mostly sweet, with a slight tartness that occurs naturally from the raspberry itself. Thereís a lot of fruit in this brew! M: The feel is medium bodied and coats the palate. The beer isnít syrupy or viscous, per se, but does feel dense, in a way. D: A good offering and very enjoyable. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 12-25-2010

From notes. First reviewed 12/14/2011. Poured from a 2L growler into a tulip. Thanks to Dunt for bringing this over. There is no color to call this besides raspberry red. Solid all the way through, like it was a glass of raspberry juice. A small off-white head sits on top and fades to nothing as the glass goes on. Sweet raspberries pop in the aroma. A little bit of tartness at the end. Nothing else really presents itself. The flavor starts out sweet and syrupy with a strong raspberry flavor. The raspberry flavor carries all the way through, blotting out any other flavors. If anything, it is a little sweeter than a raspberry, with just a little bit of tartness toward the end. Sweet and a little syrupy in the mouthfeel, with light carbonation and a fuller than medium body. Good raspberry beers rank among my favorite style, and this definitely tastes like sweet raspberries, but there is just not the complexity to really drive this beer into the great category.

Draft. Pours hazy, raspberry red with thin, fizzy off-white head; decent retention and spare lacing. Aroma is heavy raspberry, sweet malt, and light earthy notes. Flavor is light sweet malt, no hops, and heavy raspberry fruit esters; slightly tart, refreshing finish. Medium body and carbonation with low warmth.

Tap. Pours clear ruby with a medium, fizzy light ruby head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is raspberry, light cookie malt and faint earthy notes. Flavor is malt forward with heavy raspberry character, no hops or bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation with low warmth.

This poured a ruby red pinkish color with a pinkish head. aroma was of lots of sweeter fresh raspberries, light yeast too. Flavor was much the same a bit more sweet than I was hoping, wish it was a bit more tart. Pretty nice fruit berr but not on the same level as the Kriek.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2011 I just canít describe how delicious and how well it went with the chicken and waffles, but Iíll try anyway. First of all; Aroma all red raspberry........Appearance; beautiful deep garnet with a whispy pink head........Full bodied but VERY drinkable. The immense raspberry flavor was balanced by a substantial malty base. The tartness of the berries again beautifully balanced by a slightly sweet malt. I feel so blest to have hit the brewpub during the conjuncture of Framboise and chicken and waffle week. Totally Yum!

Had this on-tap at the Selinís Grove 14th anniversary party. Served into a goblet. A - Pours deep, dark, red with a bright red, borderline pink, head that leaves light lacing down the glass. S - Lots of tart raspberries up front that remain thru the duration. A touch of bready, doughy, malt from the base beer helps balance it a bit but this one is all about the fruit. A touch dull when first poured but it gets better and better as it warms. T - The huge blast of tart raspberries up front is delicious. As they begin to let up you get some sweetness and you begin to pick up some of the breadyness from the base beer. It is a perfect compliment to all the sweet, tart, raspberries. Finish is more raspberry tartness that lingers for some time, but in a good way. Why canít all fruit beers be this way? Easily one of the best. M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Creamy feel with a bit of lingering tartness from the raspberries. This one is smooth as velvet with just the right amount of sweetness. O - Very, very, nice beer. I could put a few of these back no problem. A nearly perfect mix of tart raspberries and sugary sweetness. When it comes to fruit beers, Selinís Grove can literally do no wrong. From this Framboise to the kriek and saison de peche, all are world class and some of the best in the style. If you have a chance to try any of them I suggest you do, you will not regret it.

Growler pour thanks to JohnGalt1. Pours out cloudy red/mahogany topped with a small head. Aroma was of sweet raspberry jam along with a little funk. Taste was full on sweet raspberries, along with some cherries, and the light funk/tart.

Michael Thorpe coming through again, keeping me stocked up on the best of the Selinís Grove stable...Growler poured into a "perfect" pint glass...A dark blood red purple color, really beautiful. A light purple head, great retention and lacing, awesome...Great aroma os sweet raspberries(like you took some raspberries and squeezed them in your hand), sugar notes that are a touch candyish, with a tart finish. A little more tart then Raspberry tart, but still wish it was a stronger...The taste is a little of a letdown, the raspberries arenít as sweet and donít come off as "real" as the aroma, but its more tart so its meeting some of wants on the nose. The tart is a little take to me, slightly medicinal raspberry finish. Iím being picky, but this is damn good, and really easy to drink. Try this.
