On tap at the brew kettle. Pours dark reddish color with thin white head that doesn’t last. Aroma is a nice mix of vanilla and fresh raspberries. Flavors are vanilla and raspberry that is not cloyingly sweet. A nice brew.

7/09/2008: RN Vanilla Frambozen is red-brown in color and doesn’t have any foam. The red raspberry aroma is accompanied by a pretty sweet but balanced flavor of real raspberries and caramelized sugar. There is a slight vanilla flavor as well. This beer has an average body and mouthfeel and is decent overall.
22 fl. oz. bottle from The Brew Kettle in Strongsville, Ohio. Rating #19 for this beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This poured a nice ruby red color with a fluffy off white head. Aroma was of really sweet rasberries and a hint of vanilla. Flavor was yeasty with some really sweet almost overbeariong raspberry taste with a hint of vanilla again. Not bad, but a bit too sweet for my liking.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a light clear amber color ale with a good size foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is a nice enough mix between some vanilla and some raspberries. Taste is a well balance mix between some raspberries (real no syrup) with some distinctive notes of vanilla and a good medium sweet malt backbone. Full body with some good carbonation and no discernable alcohol. I wasn’t sure the mix between vanilla and raspberries would work but I was quiet impressed.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Brew Kettle. Poured clear ruby with a creamy cap of pinkish-white head. The aroma picked up sweeter raspberries upfront with wheat tartness and more sweetness than substance from the vanilla. The flavor had significant vanilla all the way through, leaving a sweet, fresh whole bean impression on the finish.. lesser raspberry seeds provided some tartness on the back.. very sweet and absent of alcohol. This was a bit too sweet for me on the palate, and I would’ve liked more raspberry tartness.. nice flow across the palate.. tasty overall!
