A light, refreshing fruit beer fremented with over 500 pounds of real raspberries! At 6.2% ABV it is in the early reaches of the strong biére category! This ruby red, sour mashed and oak aged weiss beer is for everyone. Maybe some oak, cherry and vanilla come through? Try mixing it with our currently offered stout, on tap. It is real, it is right and it works. The freshest framboise on tap in town, no question!

On draft at brewery, pours a light red color, aromas of raspberries. Flavor is all rapberry syrup, not much carbonation for this beer, reminds me of a poormans version of lindermans frambroise.

Vermont Pub: Pours a reddish color without too much head. Aroma is mostly of raspberries. For a raspberry beer, this was pretty good. I was expecting more of Belgian twist, but I didn’t really get that. In any case, it was a kind of nice. Lots of raspberry flavor. It was also kind of sweet. Eh.

Very fruity. Nice red pour, and smells nice, but a little too fruity for my taste. Almost a cider. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at the brewery. Pinkish color with a light head. Raspberries come through nice. Refreshing, but not over the top.

Draft the the brewpub. Hazy purple, large bubble edge head. Aroma of raspberry perfume. Taste is not sweet, but also not too sour. OK.

alobar (3532) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2011
Pours a pinkish red color with no head. Aroma of raspberry is powerful and generally matches the flavor. Not much else beyond the raspberry other than a back ground of wood.

LilBeerDoctor (3736) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours red with a pink head. Aroma of raspberry fruit, very juice-like. Flavor of tangy sour raspberry (thankfully less juice-like than the aroma suggested). The palate is definitely on the weaker side though, I need a more robust malt backbone so there is less juice-like quality! A decent fruit beer overall. 7/4/7/3/14 [3.5/5]

rodenbach99 (4209) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2011
Pinte provenant du fût sur place. Cette bière est rose-rouge, elle n’a pas de mousse. Le nez est évident de framboise. Elle est produite à partir d’un sour mash, ça parait ! Une certaine touche de funk est perceptible. La bouche est de fruit, de framboise, une touche acide et sûre. J’aime bien le style de cette bière mais le fruit défendu est la pomme.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma is fruity, crisp raspberry - light cherry touch, not sulphorish. Dry raspberry fruity. Light citric and mellow finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Tap at Vt Pub. Pours a hazed bright reddish with thinning head. Aroma is big raspberry puree, seedy, mineral, sweet fruit juice, and light plasticy phenolics and grass. FLavor is shapr astringent cherry pit, rasp seeds, minerla, light metlalic, fruit juice with a slick finsih, but the fruit is very prounounced, mostly fresh, and low to no aceto. not bad.
