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.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2011
Nose of fresh raspberry, light belgian yeast, a touch of tartness, a hint winey. Pours reddish purple brown, nice off pinkish head. The flavor is full of fresh raspberry, light fresh tartness, a hint of belgian yeast base, and a light alcohol note in the finish. Nice fruit strong fruit beer. Good.

DuffMan (6641) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 22, 2010
GCBF 2010. Orangey-pink, lively head. Pungent, real-raspberry aroma. Fresh raspberry fruit flavour, sweet and a little syrupy, but balanced by a medicinal tartness.

mcberko (6260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2010
Sampled on tap at the Alibi Room, pours reddish pink with a pink head. Aroma of raspberries and some tartness. Flavour is pretty much the same, with the tartness on the finish. Quite decent.

After wandering Hastings with a big SLR camera slung around my neck for 20 minutes, apparently begging for a mugging, I finally sat down for some pints seconds after the bar opened. I wish I would have started with a different beer. Bright red amber, clean white cap and ok lacing. Cream Soda hits my nose first, turns more into raspberry later on.. ok smell I guess. Taste... candy, alcohol, odd bitterness - is it the bitterness giving this taste? Has a menthol feel on my breath, sour, weak raspberry, euro grain, meh. Medicinal hops. Ouch.

The most interesting beer in the taster. A brilliant dark red color with a pleasant raspberry aroma. Tight carbonation, wonderful dry raspberry flavor. A very refreshing and pleasant beer.

humulushound (242) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2009
Served at Steamworks in a tulip. Cherry color with no discernible head. Aroma is light malt and raspberry cough syrup. Taste is sweet berry malt, boozy alcohol with an astringent finish. Crisp and smooth body and finish.

turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2009
On tap at Steamworks. Strangely enough, it tasted like raspberry. There was a definite dry red wine overtone to this beer that I liked. This beer has a couple of extra dimensions: it mixes well with the Witbier and really well with the Coal Porter. I recommend asking for tasters of both these combinations. I think I liked the Frambozen/Porter mixture best of all.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - SEP 7, 2008
Raspberry color with a thin head. Aroma is a sweet raspberry, candy like, light alcohol sweetness. Taste is raspberry candy, very sweet but without a super strong raspberry taste to it that is overwhelming but it’s there.
