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.

A nice raspberry aroma with light malts. Small pink head sat on a light red body. Flavour was raspberry all the way with minor malts. Finish was tart. A good fruit beer.

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.

Medium-dark red color with a nice raspberry aroma. Very nice bold raspberry flavour. Would need some more complexity for a higher rating but it was much better then I was expecting.

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.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2004
Bright ruby red colour with a thin slightly pink head. Sright sweet raspberry aroma with the pronounced bitterness of raspberry seeds. Flavour shows lots of raspberry on the front with a burst of tart tannins in the middle before a short acidic finish. Very interesting, if somewhat thin body. Tasty brew, but not all that complex.

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.

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

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.
