COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Frambozen is inspired by the centuries old Belgian tradition of brewing beer with raspberries. This high gravity brew undergoes a slow second fermentation with tons of fresh, whole Fraser Valley raspberries. The result is a ruby-red fruit beer with a intense raspberry flavour, a nice tart finish and a luscious pink head.

Bomber. Clear deep ruby red, small pink foamy head mostly lasts. Tart berry fruity yeasty aroma. Fresh tart unsweetened raspberry taste, lightly bitter, some underlying yeasty farmyard funkiness. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. ABV well hidden, dry finish. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

pictoman (482) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 23, 2013
Poured from a 650mL bottle. Deep maroon red colour, clearish, but opaque to see through completely, with dissipating pinkish white head. Aroma predominantly raspberry concentrate. Light raspberry taste with hints of tartness and bitterness. Not much sweetness. A little bland overall with a light, slightly oily body.

On tap at sunset. Clear ruby, minimal cap. Aroma is earthy, tart raspberries. Taste is tart raspberry. Not bad.

Vibrant ruby red. Raspberry and sweet malt on the nose. Tart fruit mixes nicely with the malt and the finish is quite refreshing. Good variation of the Belgian style

Deep, lovely red. Very enticing raspberry nose. Sour, but not too sour. A bitter edge to the palate brings what complexity there is. Still brings the thing I came for- raspberries.

Perefct summer beer. Really intense fruity taste. But the very light red color does not suit the appearance of a cool beer...

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 24, 2011
Draught at the brewpub, as Raspberry Belgian Triple, at 9.5% ABV
Ruby red color, creamy head. Aroma of raspberries. Good body strength; flavor of raspberry syrup, with malt backbone and too much bitterness for this beer; moderate sweetness, and clear alcohol perception. Not the worst fruit beer around, a bit artificial and boozy.

Sammy (8526) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2011
Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Pink coloured body with a thin white head. Real raspberry aromas. Initially tart and promissing, a lot of sugar and malt base behind it made this one go the other way. i wanted the tartness. Average mouthfeel, decent drinkability.

Deep ruby color, small reddish head. Sweetish, slightly tart rasberry aroma. Medium-bodied. Dry flavor of rasberries and rasberry stones. Nice body, but not much going on in this brew. Clean.
